A small thing, but Mrs Chillikebab’s electric bike ticked over to a thousand kilometres the other day. I was able to capture the event on video, for your viewing pleasure.
This was on the same day that I had to replace the front brake pads – so I can tell you that pads last for exactly 1000km.
And it was also the day after I got the first puncture on that bike. So they seem to come at about 1000km intervals.
You might be thinking that 1000km is not a very high total for a bike that is four years old. This is because, sad to say, Mrs Chillikebab is not a big bike rider. Most of those electric kilometres I have ridden myself (it’s a fun bike to ride). But however you look at it, one thousand is a milestone. Or perhaps a kilometrestone.
