Batribike Delta Local Review

Batribike Delta Local Review

Batribike Delta 2017 Review    ” I recently purchased an ebike from Bude bikes, the process was extremely smooth and the outcome has been life changing. James at Bude Bikes helped me to decide which ebike would suit me best, showing me all the options and also inviting me to an open day where I could see all the ebikes for myself, try them out and also talk to the manufacturers themselves. I settled on a Batribike Delta. Living on a hill in a fairly remote part of North Cornwall has taken the pleasure out of cycling for me over the last few years, and my motivation for exercising had plummeted.         The first time I rode the ebike was a thrill as I could get to the top of the hill out of our hamlet without breaking sweat and feeling like I’d already pulled several muscles. Once onto the main road the ebike really comes into its own; it is fast, solid and cruises along. There is no need to constantly change gear as the motor takes the strain just when you need it. Far from being a soft option the power enables you to cycle further and be out on the bike for much longer, so rather than turning for home knowing you have a long hill to climb on the way back or not going down a long hill knowing you’ve got to come back up it you can just carry on and on. What used to be a strenuous 5 mile unpleasurable experience is now a 10 or 15 mile stress free adventure.         So from not knowing how I was going to keep myself in shape as I get into my fifties I’m now planning trips to places I would only ever have driven to. It has been a great investment and I would recommend it to anyone. “   Dave W. 05.07.18 More details on the Delta can be found by clicking...

ExHire – Draisin Wheel Chair Tandem

ExHire – Draisin Wheel Chair Tandem

  ExHire – Draisin Wheel Chair Tandem Purpose made, the Draisen range of mobility and access bikes are some of the finest, toughest and most capable around. We have had our Quest88 supplied Draisin Wheel Chair Tandem on the hire fleet for four years, and it has been a fantastic enabler helping people enjoy the open air. Despite this, the tandem has had low use and has not been used at all in the 2016 hire season, so it is with regret that we have decided to sell the bike. We will however re-invest in a range of different kit such as youth/adult tags, stabilisers, support seats or a trike (if a suitable one can be found), so that we may still enable those with limited mobility to join in the fun of cycling. We are looking for offers and will consider part exchanges for the right kit. Price:...
