Leaped and landed

It was a big task, but finally we have moved into our much bigger new premises at 96 Richmond Street. The old industrial building has heritage charme and it was great to "snuggle" into the venerable hall. Much more breathing space and all bikes are displayed as they have long deserved. Plenty of safe test ride area as well! ...

The end of the Powerbutler

We are sorry to have to say that the supply problem of the Powerbutler has not been solved. Some of you know that the manufacturer died a sudden death in February. His family has not been willing to continue the business, which meant the end of the Powerbutler supply. If someone knows an electric engineer who would be interested in building a similar product, please let us know....

This is an intelligent converter from 12V to 36V (the voltage of a typical e-bike battery...

That falls into place with these exciting two new bikes that came out in July, the Catalyst and the Pacer, it's street ...
