Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Well, it is a bike.T&Di by name, Chinese manufacture. It has three 12v 12ah batteries, the batt connection wiring is missing. Should I go for series or parallel, 12 or 36 volt. Anyone got a clue?
  2. This bloke is selling one on ebay. It has his mobile number on the advert. Call him and ask how his is wired.

  3. Try it with one 12 volt battery first and see what happens.

    Has it got any instruments like volt meter or battery condition indicator?
  4. You see loads of electric bikes around Hull, the lazy bastards, Hull is as flat as a witch's tit!
  5. Aren't you going to look a bit of a twat riding down your local high street?

  6. Lots of them nowadays in the Mekong Delta - also a very flat area. The problem with them is that they make no noise at all, so you need to keep your wits about you when walking through the towns. And they are very quick.
  7. 36V you big woofter. After all, what's the worst that could happen on a Chinese made bicycle of uncertain construction?
  8. At least they have crayshee shekshey bike lanes, in Hull they ride on the pavements. It's also against the law to have a bell on your bike in Hull.
  9. bike lanes in brighton appear to be training grounds for the idiots who then go onto play with real roads after making a complete arse out of bicycle lanes.
    best bike lane is in the middle of nowhere and goes nowhere useful sometimes cycle out to it to dream.
    they had to lay the promanade cycle lane twice and managed to set it up so it killed some poor sod.
  10. Flash to bang four mins. 'kin awsome. Sorted now, 36v. Cheers chaps.

    Pay some ******* road tax, two wheeled scum.
  12. No the twats some how managed to arrange the cycle path next to a staircase without thinking possibly a safety rail at the top might have been an idea.
    The first time they laid the Tarmac they grabbed some pikeys to lay Tarmac straight over pavement and some how managed to make it uncomfatable to cycle on.

    Happy to pay road tax how much is it?
  13. Holy thread necromancy batman !

    For some reason the missus decided to blow her pie budget on a leccy bike on ebay, and I have to say once you get over the fact you look like a **** and sound like a milk float its surprisingly good. I mean you feel as unsafe as hell but you soon get over that, and for £300 it was (nearly) a steal.
