Re: Cyclist spits at me and makes a buzzing noise !

I never thought it would be a problem riding with others, but I noticed since commuting it seems the Lycra crowd really have to prove a point about going faster than me, I sit around (40-45km/h) along the bicycle paths which are mostly big massive straights that run adjacent the motorways Cant peddl...

Re: ebike charger

have checked the fuse and no change

even with battery not plugged in, charger is blinking green on its own
I noticed the fan doesnt come on though anymore. (which could be faulty)

Re: PAS Sensor/ magents not holding..

will try to get one up
I think Ive removed too much from the front face of the disc

Ive also lined it with duct tape to build up the thickness
my main issue was that my pedal was loose :(

Re: PAS Sensor/ magents not holding..

Thanks, I might give that a try.
I think I may have cut away too much from the inner circle to get it to fit on the hollowtech crank :S

Just found my pedal was a little loose! :(

PAS Sensor/ magents not holding..

I ended up modifying my PAS sensor to fit my hollowtech 2 / deore cranks at times if I really pedal hard, the hall magnets? (round bit with 12 magnets is slipping) Is there any tips or quick tricks people would recommend to lock it in place with pedal or crank arm? was thinking some rubber washers?

Re: more issues! - loosing power dodgy battery holder

I bent the connections outward on the battery and it now holds in place.
I just cant believe all sorts of issues are happening with this ebike kit :(
