    Got a Giant twist and it has made life so much better . Whichever one you get you will not regret it ..if your going to any motorhome show you will find several dealers selling them ,so try one and see ...Roy

    Kool, this is for the beach, grass, etc.
    Tyre drag will EAT the battery
    Have a look at roodog, I have an explorer.
    Really like it done over 500 miles in one year, and I am no cyclist.

    Had a Volt Plus bike brilliant, until it was stolen. Thought I would look for a lighter one. Ended up buying a Woosh Karoo very light hardly ever need the electric and at £700 a very good price.

    I've got the Volt Pulse X Hybrid
    Had it for about a year
    Mrs C has the Volt ladies bike

    The hybrid goes like a rocket

    Very pleased

    We have 2 for sale, made by Electric Bike Conversions. We have only used them in Benidorm last summer. They have covered only 59 miles, (recorded on computer screen). We have them for sale at £400 each but will sell for £350 each. We will also include the carrying bags, (they were £30 each).

    Sorry Ludo, should have got back to you a while ago. We're actually looking for 26inch bike versions but good luck in selling your bikes.
