    Glad your enjoying your bike. 🙂
    They really are a lot of fun.
    The batteries might seem like an expencive purchase, but they will save you a lot of problems.
    you have already experienced forgetting to charge, luckily you still managed to make it home without the battery cutting out.
    The batteries have an under voltage cutout to save the battery from destroying itself.
    When it cuts out the bike loses all power and is impossible to pedal for more than 10 or 20 metres
    The battery will come back to life again if disconnected from the bike for a short while and then reconnected. however running the bike again would cut out shortly after and each time it will be damaging the battery. thats why they have under voltage protection.
    having 2 batteries increases the lifespan of both batteries as neither battery will ever get too low.
    You may not experience these problems as your journey is different to mine.
    Thanks for the info on the oxford alarm ive been looking for something like that.

    20160306_180927After a long ride on some bumpy roads today I found that the seat wouldnt unlock, the key was turning and the lock action felt normal but the seat wouldnt release, I released the seat by putting my hand under the plastic panel just behind the key lock feeling for the cable and then pulling it to pop the lock.

    Once open I removed the black inner tub, this gave me access to the rear of the key lock where I found that the cable had jumped out of the slot in its clip (see first photo) removing the tub requires undoing 4 bolts, and it is probably easier if you first take off the seat unit, I also removed the power cables from the main isolator switch, and after lifting the tub up slightly I also disconnected the 2 charger port wires at their connector plugs, this enabled me to remove the tub completely out of the way, but it is possible to leave all the cables connected and squeeze a hand in if you have someone to hold the tub up.

    After clipping the lock cable back in I fitted a cable tie around it to prevent it coming out again (see second photo)

    With small hands and nimble fingers would also be possible to re-fit the lock cable from underneath the panel if you laid the scooter over on its right side or had someone to hold it leant over, this would save undoing anything or using any tools.

    Hope this helps if you havent already had his problem and figured out the fix.

    It looks like the 2 photo’s have swapped places in the main message there, the top photo shows the fix, with the cable tie in place, the bottom photo is how I found the cable when I removed the tub, you will see that the end of the cable has jumped out of its slot.

    Hello Ken,

    It’s such a joy to hop onto my Model 15. I love that I have the option to pedal or to just use the throttle. This joy, however, is marred by the fact that practically every time I ride my bike the chain comes off. As I pedal 99% of the time this is a great inconvenience – the chain stops moving, there’s a bit of a jerk and then the sound of the chain dragging on the ground.
    I’ve cleaned the chain a couple of times, kept it properly greased but am still having problems. Any suggestions would be most welcome!

    On a different note, any decision made as yet on the yellow bicycle with the more affordable price point?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Ten

    On the rear hub there is a plastic guard which can knock the chain of the cogs if it comes loose. The solution is simple- just take a pair of scissors and cut it off.

    It is possible that the chain has stretched and needs to be tightened by removing a link but I think this is unlikely and your issue should be solved by removing the plastic piece.

    Regards

    Ken

    Thank you, Ken. Will give that a try and hope it works. I mostly use my bike to get to and from work so delays to get the chain back on are unwanted.

    I am really glad I got my bike from ‘eriderbikes’ as you are so very good with after-purchase help and advice.

    I’ve been getting my new Model 30 out and about between the storms and had my first proper run on it today. It’s a lovely thing to trundle around town on but there is one thing which I think I may not have set up correctly yet.

    I’m only getting a maximum speed of 19 km/h, more like a Model 15 than a 30. I wonder if this has something to do with the red, green and yellow lights on the throttle. Presumably there is something that can be connected which isn’t that makes these do something. At the moment, regardless of which setting I choose, I still get a maximum speed of 19 km/hr.

    How do I fix this?

    Hi Mark

    The following is an extract from a review posted by Paul Collins.

    Interestingly, on my first ride, the bike wouldn’t exceed 15mph, and the button did nothing other than change the light colour, so I returned to my garage for a head scratch and then I noticed a thin white wire poking out of the rear panel just below the seat, where the rear rack mount goes through the panel, and wondered why the manufacturer would leave this poking out, so I pulled the little plug connector apart and went out again, bingo, full power!!

    Think this should sort it,

    Regards

    Ken
