Giant, top bikes, great value. Big buying power for them, so are usually higher spec than same price opposition.I keep looking. Did 75 mile usual little jaunt along canal towpath on Monday.
Can get a hard tail for a little over £2k now. Giant fathom etc.
My mate got us some energy gels to swig to power us home.
Awful stuff. Like fizzy jizz (I think).

My dealer said he can reset the computer to 26" rims, instead of 29", and get more speed out it it. Not much, but it only needs about 5 more KPH. I hit 50KPH on mine downhill the other day. So it's possible 😂A mate has bought a 2021 giant trance. 3yr warranty on motor and battery. 3yr 0% finance makes it quite affordable and the 3yr cover on the motor might swing it for me. Only problem is the 15mph limit is turning out to be ludicrous. I can pedal just as quick and in some cases quicker on my old 2005 pedal bike. Comes into its own on long steep climbs or shorter ones if you start from a standstill. Short hills with a run up I can pull away. Hit the speed limit and it feels like you are fighting the motor. Magnetic speed override gadget on its way I believe.
An average speed of over 15 mph on a long road ride is some going for normal folk, I slog out a good hill with a gradient of 16 at around walking pace, an EMTB can do that in eco ( lowest power mode) around 6-7mph,Yea the 15mph just needs lifting to about 20. 15 is very easy to pedal past.
As far as on the road goes, well I can do a long ride with that as an average speed. Carbon road bike not the old mtb!
