    Has anyone noticed that A.S. Bikes have introduced two new models with twin batteries? I guess this is to double the range and is something I haven't seen before. They also have disc brakes on the front and a handlebar display. Not sure my bum could cope with going twice as far in a day but I want one!

    Saw them at the Glasgow show........ look good but we are happy wit the bikes we have at present.

    We replaced the saddles on ours to saddles that were fitted to us and it has made a huge difference to the relevant area of the anatomy. Had to alter the lever that releases the seat a little but that was quite easy. Also padded cycle shorts are a help (you wear them instead of underwear :) but the biggest help was definitely the new saddles. Surprisingly the custom saddles were not expensive.... mine was just under £20 and his about £15 when there were saddles costing in excess of £100 in the shop.

    Our bike has only one battery which is more than sufficient, mind you the 750cc does help loads when going up hill!!!!!!!!:winky:

    Are these new bikes EU compliant?

    Look like more of the same to me......As for compliance what do you think, best check, probably horrible to ride without a throttle if they are...Depends on what you want to get out of your cycling I guess
