Hah, and your stupid ass wanted a Lancia lol

My stupid ass still wants a Lancia. Even sat at the side of the road with the gearbox scattered everywhere it would still be a million times cooler than the incredibly unaesthetic Nissan Note I have these days.

Surely better (if not in looks) than my piece of shit Corsa. I cannot kill the damn thing though, no matter how much I neglect it, even if the head gasket is now solely comprised of Radweld

You have the same horrible problem as me. No matter how much you neglect the car it refuses to die, the more you abuse it the better it seems to run, after a year of driving it like a c*nt and hoping it would fail its mot so I could get something new it flew through with the only advisory being tires. Why is my most hated car my most reliable by far?

It failed on a suspension arm gaiter, that was it lol
Went to Wales for a week and ragged it around the back roads with zero mechanical sympathy, ran better for it

So I might be getting a Giant Trance ebike.

Replaceable battery is a nice feature for multi-lap days.

The weird bit is today my dad said go to the lbs and find out how much one is. He'll use it, get bored, then it's mine.

They do Giant and Whyte, would like the Whyte but it's a lot more money than the Giant. So I thought the Trance e+2 would be a good choice.

Been looking at the Kona Remote 160 and Cannondale Moterra here. I hate being as ignorant as I am about all the motors and stuff. Feels like a brand new learning curve.

I've only been on 2 ebikes, a Cube and a Cannondale. The cube was a demo bike at a show. The Cannondale was a friends bike, he let me take for a spin around Morzine, it was a lot of fun.

The only issue with getting multiple batteries is the cost. Talking with a shop buddy he had to get replacement battery pack for a guy running a Cube ebike it cost 1100CAD for the battery pack. He left his bike unplugged for an extended period of time and the battery wouldn't take a charge.

Interested to hear your thoughts on the Trance E, it's top of my shortlist. Currently got my mates Giant hardtail ebike in the garage on loan and it's pretty rad.

I don't see why you wouldn't go longer travel. You're going to climb literally anything, so what's the point?

I rode with a guy on a hai bike or whatever... and it was impossible to keep up with him... f*ck load of fun that bike was

The reason I'm going Trance over Reign is the £500 extra retail cost.

This isn’t a bike, but I still think it belongs in here
