Gtech e-bike review: Like a bike that makes you incredibly good at cycling
The Independent is a British online newspaper. Established in 1986 as an independent national morning newspaper published in London, it was controlled by Tony O'Reilly's Independent News & Media from 1997 until it was sold to Russian oligarch Alexander Lebedev in 2010. The last printed edition of The Independent was published on Saturday 26 March 2016, leaving only its digital editions.
Nicknamed the Indy, it began as a broadsheet, but changed to tabloid (compact) format in 2003. Until September 2011, the paper described itself on the banner at the top of every newspaper as "free from party political bias, free from proprietorial influence". It tends to take a pro-market stance on economic issues.
The daily edition was named National Newspaper of the Year at the 2004 British Press Awards.
In June 2015, it had an average daily circulation of just below 58,000, 85 per cent down from its 1990 peak, while the Sunday edition had a circulation of just over 97,000.

Technically, an e-bike is a normal bicycle that also includes a battery that gives you a push, but in reality it’s nothing like that. In reality it’s like a wizard: able to summon winds behind your back to propel you, like making yourself roughly twice as strong and fit as you really are, or like getting a backie from a friendly ghost.
Hehe... "looking like a real
They are both the same price: just under £1,000. That's costly, of course, but it's worth remembering that as well as everything else you get a very good bike, with the chain of a high-end motorbike and a battery of the kind used in an electric car.
Because joyful is what it is, and that joy never gets old.
It is something like the first time you ever ride a bike: the thrill of the way that simple metal and mechanics can turn the movement of your legs into a surprisingly powerful and speedy journey. But this time it's not all you.
DANG. "Wet my jeans" again.
ES changed my life (for the waaaaay better).
