Dave lives at the top of a big hill and his office is at the bottom, so he's all in favour of a helping hand. Plus, e-bikes are fun! He's the editor of ebiketips and one of the founders of EBT's road cycling sister site, He used to work on Cycling Plus and What Mountain Bike back in the day, and he's a former mountain bike bog snorkelling World Champion. Really.

I have just purchased the 2018 Emu Step through bike with the new colour screen. I am really enjoying it and it is handling the reasonably steep hills (one which is 12.5%) back from the station every night with ease. I just turn down the nexus gears to 1 and whack up the assist to 5 (there is no 6 in the 2018 version) and I sail up.

I have one issue. I am able easily to turn on the front and back lights by holding down the + button for 3 seconds. However, the display then fades, presumably on the assumption that I am riding the bike at night. This isn't always the case, as for safety sake I like to have the the lights on during the day as well. I wonder if there is any way of stopping the display fading, or do I have to go into the menu to turn up the brightness of the displat each time I use the lights
