Hello all, greetings from UK

Hi there fellow cyclists. My name is Jon and I am 46 yrs of age. I ride both a conventional mtb and for my 18 mile round trip to work 7 days a week I ride a cyclamatic power plus ebike, 24v 250w. I work in the New Forest and have given the Cyclamatic quite a battering, so if anyone is considering buying one I am able to give u a fairly comprehensive idea of the pros and cons of this particular model, what I will say is get ready to upgrade some of the components, shocks and crank are a must for anyone whos going to be using the bike regularly.
I love dogs,have a Jack Russell and a Staffy ,Pit cross,both written off as "red zone dogs" now both happy well balanced dogs.
I am a gardener and freelance artist. Well thats me introduced,I look forward to corresponding.

Thank you Ron. I`m guessing by your pic that you share the love for our cannine and lupus friends.

Hello Jon,

How do you like the ebike. They work? They're sturdy enough? We dont hear too much about ebikes. It's like a sacrilege to cycling but it's very utilitarian. I'm just lazy enough and I enjoy riding. I would get a dirt bike or motorcycle. An electric one I can plug in, goes 25mph, no liscence and can pedal if you're out of juice. I'd do that, I was in Asia and knew some people who rode them so they must be pretty well tested and functional. A few questions about them in general:

How does the throttle work? It looks like you click up and down gears, does that maintain a steady speed depending on the gear or can you let off and coast, maybe its a thumb throttle? At 60 pounds I imagine you can't put it on a trunk rack and transport it somewhere. You'd need a truck, ride from your house or have it as a means of transportation. Looks like one website has them next to those offroady golfcarts and 4 wheelers. If you get an off road one is that going to cruise around pretty good on trails? 25mph is more than enough to hurt myself. and do they need complicated maintenance on a regular basis, or have a short lifespan? I'll have to look into them more now.
