Hero must have bought Parkers in the process then I guess although it could simply be the legal formalities of Hero taking over Avocet hasn't been recorded yet and won't be until this year's financial statement maybe Parkers have split of at this point. It was just confusing when I knew Avocet were owned by Hero bikes and seemed strange to own a relatively small cycle shop operation considering Hero I think are the second biggest bicycle manufacturer in the world by volume after fuji-ta of China. If you look at the figures Parkers doesn't have huge sales. Anyway you have definitely established the connection between the companies but again while it may be relevant for e-bikes for those who don't want to the hassle of trying to find replacement parts on aliexpress or ebay it certainly isn't applicable to this particular bike. https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/northwest/hero-cycles-revives-historic-cycling-brand https://www.bikebiz.com/business/hero-of-india-takes-majority-stake-in-avocet-of-manchester

Companies house shows beyond question that Parkers parent company is avocet sports ltd

Besford

They (eventually) transferred my call from Avocet to Parkers via their own switchboard and were a bit cagey when i asked if it was the same company. If most people get good service most of the time that's fine but my experience doesn't support that.

I've purchased mine - when I looked over the weekend they were out of stock. Guess they've had some more in since.

Still 3 left but gone up to £520 and I think you can buy non B grade versions for £1000.

All gone now - great deal. Thanks for posting

local.best

Thanks for posting such an amazing deal! This is my best buy this year. And I can confirm that the bike I received is literally Brand New.

bonzobanana

That's great to read, there has been a few more positive reviews on the site too, although the saddle doesn't seem particularly liked by a few people and is the main complaint but very positive apart from that. Still 12 in stock as I write. Surprised as e-bikes are already going up in price thought these would be snapped up. Saying that it gets a bit dead this time of year bike sales wise, although children's bikes normally start to sell well as we move towards Christmas.

I went from a Budgie, my very first bike that I remember taking the stabilisers off and learning to ride around the village cricket pitch, straight to a second hand Chopper at 6 or 7 years old. Looked pretty funky but it was too heavy to pull wheelies on and it had that mad "power lever" gear shift - you'd often have to look down while travelling at high speed to change gear - which felt rather dangerous. To be honest the Chopper wasn't a great bike beyond its unconventional appearance.

KingAwKings

It was a hand me down I received as well from older brother, in fact all bikes where, it wasn't until I was 18 and working i could afford my first brand new bike. oooh doesnt sound to good that crash but spooky that slope being called Dracula (lol)

I'm holding out for a Grifter

Harry.Turk

Had a hand-me-down one from my brother (purple from memory) - had no brakes, which was great as I (what seemed) 360'd in the air down a (what seemed) 45 degree downhill slope called 'Dracula' by the local kids (oddly outside an old people's home). Landed on my head so the colour of the bike might have actually been fluorescent pink in reality - can't remember... I did bounce though 8) Actually learnt to cycle on a Commando owned by a friends neighbour. Think my blood still paints the fences of houses in Southgate - London XD

bonzobanana

It's not a Chopper but this thread makes me think of this video. The most well-used bike in the world. The chainset looks pretty similar though to the modern Chopper.

250w is still great if you live somewhere hilly.

greencat

Missus has one of the earlier ones. Perhaps it is because she is fairly small, but it works well on the hills here in Wales. For me of average height, I found it too small and fairly pointless so I wonder if there is a sweet spot in terms of the size, weight and fitness. It looks to me that this new version has had many tweaks to it. The hub motor looks different as does the battery - and it has replaced the rear brake for a v-brake. It might perform quite differently to the older version.

MrHot

​You can get stem extender adaptors, kind of common for this style of bike.

bonzobanana

Yes exactly the same issues as power tools as you would expect. Many power tool chargers will charge fast and then taper off the charge rate as the batteries get full. Some won't even fully charge to the capacity of the cells to extend battery life and reduce warranty returns. The tools themselves will often protect the batteries from going below a 20% charge to protect the battery and allow safe storage for months without cell damage. Thermal safety sensors are in both the tool and the charger due to li-ion cells explosive nature. I suspect the issue of customers using their li-ion drill outside and leaving it in clear view of the baking sun leading to cutting out in use probably isn't much different from an e-bike parked in the baking sun and then cutting out when you hit the hills.

hughwp

The manufacturers 500 odd cycles is a upper limit based on laboratory conditions with optimum charging rates/times temps. When a battery is used dozens of more significant factors will come into play that will affect the lifetime like Quality of charger, storage temps, ageing, discharge rates, time left discharged, time between charges, temperatures during storage discharge and charge even how long you leave it on the charger when full. efficiency of charging equipment and over charge protection etc. All these factors vary between batteries some like to be left on charge when not in use like golf trolley batteries others should be disconnected once fully charged. Lith-ion batteries do not last significantly longer than conventional deep cycle batteries but give greater power under varying loads but do tend to cut out quicker when running low to protect them from undervoltage

I can fully believe this could be 14kg

bonzobanana

One of the figures will have to be wrong either amazon or argos as there is no way a box and its packaging is only 1kg and looking at the bike and its components I can't see it being 14kg but if weight is a critical figure for you I guess assume the heaviest figure.

CCC007

​Thank you everyone. That's great.

Bertz99

Argos states fully assembled weight of 14kg.

bonzobanana

Actually further in the review of that viking bike it says its 10.9kg not 8kg so I guess the Cetus would be similar.

good for adding a rear wheel lock but the effort involved in removing and locking I'd proably rather have a larger lock or just quick release it. ANd how good are the lights?

'Save £45.05' ummmmmm, really. More of a gimmick than anthing else, imo.
