Over the past few weeks, we have been testing the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet and Nokia Lumia 630 smart phone. Both excellent devices in their categories; Matt talks to Mark Murphy about them Mark gets hands on.

This week we talk exclusively about the Batribike Granite Pro, a super pedal assisted ebike, with the added feature of a throttle.
We were very impressed by this bike, it was extremely well built, comfortable and the throttle was just an amazing addition for when you want a rest from pedalling, but can happily continue to propel you along at 15mph.
We will be uploading a full review of the Granite Pro in the next couple of days.
I would however like to thank Sue from Batribike for delivering the bike to us personally last week and picking it up again today. It made such a difference having a fully working ebike delivered to our door.
