    Leaked oil coming from lever pivot pin

    EBR friends, I'm new to disk brakes and my Tektro brakes are now both leaking fluid from the area of the lever pivot pin. One of the leaks is substantial now and has been there since day one, the other started after I bled both brakes the other day. I've tried googling it but found nothing much...

    Is it a good practice to regrease geared hub motors as part of usual preventative maintenance after putting on some mileage?

    E-bike riding instruction and tips

    I noticed a post about trouble riding ebike with one hand on the bars when using hand signals and from there I thought a bit and noticed that there isn't much instruction for ebike riders at all. There's lots of very good motorcycle instruction but nothing for ebike. There are difficulties...

    Disk brake sounds like heavy wood scraping concrete

    The rear hydraulic disk brake sounds like that about half the time ... not squealing at all, just scraping. Bike is 2 weeks old 300km with lots of braking. Is that a sound that is recognizable for a likely diagnosis?

    Is my battery bad?

    My store bought ebike came with a reention LG 48V 17Ah battery. It arrived about 10 days ago. I've noticed that my mileage seemed weak, especially notice it from 100 %. It drops to 88% in a ride of 7km with taking it no more than 20 km/hr and helping, always pedalling, taking it easy on the...

    How do you carry your battery, when leaving your bike locked outside in the city?

    That's the question. I'm trying to think of a way to make sure it doesn't take a fall when I'm shopping. I'm imagining a closeable shoulder sling of some sort would be safest. What's your solution?
