    well my late christmas present finally arrived today..very pleased to say the least. Front and rear suspension, with a strong rack which is unusual in a full suspension bike. German quality, it is a Riese & Muller Delite mountain :)

    I thought my Haibike was nice but this in a different league..On some local rough unadopted roads I can fly along in comfort, so much fun, will be great on tracks etc....
    It has latest Bosch performance motor, a little more power than my Bosch powered Haibike, but its the overall quality feel of the bike that is entirely different..Well chuffed but skint:giggle:

    Wow nice bit of kit Im jealous would love to get it out in the woods and tracks around here.

    My next one will be more like yours. Just completed my first 1000 miles on mine 90% off road, loving it and getting fitter all the time.

    :Eeek::Eeek::Eeek: Suggest you see the size of my wife's ar**!! If she sat on that, it would look like John Wayne's saddlebags from the back! It would take me a good week to have the saddle surgically removed! It was bad enough when her bum swallowed a whole waltzer seat at the fair, complete with the guy who spins it! :cry::cry::cry::cry:

    Very nice.

    The saddle links are good - and saddles for men and women are also quite different. I found after I'd had a baby I needed a different saddle... all to do with anatomy of course.

    I had a saddle fitting - it's the only way really. The saddle that would be ideal for me doesn't exist but the one I have is very comfortable. Much better than the one that came with the bike. A decent cut out for the tail bone and plenty of support at the ahhhhhh rear but narrow where it needs to be.

    Yes, you'd need a rest now and again - and something to do when she was out at work earning the money to keep the van on the road.

    cheers :) love your avatar comment, "2 wheels move the soul". you either get it or you don't I guess!lol

    My mate telling me today about new studies that reveal that both cycling and skiing improve basically everything. Not just physical health ( I have lost loads of weight as well) but your mind/brain function as well. As the amounts of decisione you have to make while cycling (synapse and all that stuff) and can lead to you being mentally more tuned and as well as physically....at the end of the day its just so much fun and ebiking turns it back into a pleasure when hills become hard work...def feel younger!

    have not seen the article yet, but found this:
