Hi John,

Is that because you and Jags have history or because you don't like E bikes. How would you feel if it was a post about  Brooks saddles that was deleted because SJSC  had stopped selling them and any discussion was against Thorns/SJSC interest .
There is a member of this forum who contributes a great deal to the forum but doesn't own a Thorn bike. Is he to be censored and not allowed to discuss his Utopia bike.
As far as I know Jags has had 2 Thorns
and has contributed his fair share.

Whilst I don't agree with a lot of things that Jags says or does,  I find it unbelievable and  disappointing that a post should be deleted because it refers to product which doesn't relate to Thorn or SJSC.
So it's ok to mention Bromptons because SJSC stock them but not E bikes even though they have test bikes.
I would be very surprised if Robin Thorn wanted the forum to be run this way. As someone who has spent a lot of money with SJSC I think you do the brand more harm than good.

I want one too !!

[Sorry to say, this ^^^ is exactly why I deleted Anto's link above...this is the Thorn Cycling Forum and Thorn don't (yet) produce a fully integrated e-Bike. They do, however, pay the costs to provide this Forum as a playground for discussion of their branded bikes and related topics...touring, mechanical issues, accessories, all the things that might conceivably be Thorn related or would also work on a Thorn. If other brands are featured here then it can create a "want" at cross purposes to selling items from Thorn and its sister company, St. John's Street Cycles. The best way to support the Forum and ensure its future is to purchase things from Thorn/SJS Cycles so it will be worth their while to continue. All the best,  Dan.]

Dave's photo proves the point powerfully. That's a photo that deserves to be printed at Imperial size (yes, there is still an Imperial sheet of paper: 22x30 inches, made by paper mills in England, France, Italy and intermittently in Germany, for a market -- watercolorists -- that isn't big enough to warrant replacing centuries-old machinery).

I like your friend from South Africa without even knowing her name: one of the most difficult things about Africa (and other extreme places, like Canada and Alaska and Australia) to explain to people from small, long civilized countries in Europe, is that despite the spotty, thin veneer of civilization which to them may just look like lusher version of "back home", danger lurks lethally just out of sight, in Australia just under the toilet seat (redback spiders) even in the suburbs.

A cyclist is nearer these dangers than most other passersby. Here in Ireland throughout the summer I wear sandals; I've been bitten by a dog but only once, and an eel crossing the road between two streams snapped at me when I rode across it but did not connect. (I made a fool of myself by capturing it and rushing it to college to demand from an appropriate expert what sort of snake it was... "Aren't you guys always telling us that St Pat chased the snakes out of Ireland?" Well, I found it on land!) But I remember as a schoolboy cycling the hills outside Pietermaritzburg and a boy from the UK being told to go inside and put on shoes because it was easy to startle an adder sunbathing which would then strike out. I worked with a fellow who before lunch would handle his black and green mamba in a show on the lawn for visitors and then, without washing his hands, handle the cheese in the directors' dining room; when I told him about the puffadders in the foothills of the Drakensberg, he called them "Filthy vipers," as if by comparison mamba were hygienic!
