I prefer the Under Armour 9" original boxer jock. When I ride my commuter bike I never wear cycling shorts with a chamois. I think the Brooks leather saddle helps a lot with the comfort.

I was in a bike shop that offered a shimano hub on a pre-built wheel for $99. I hadn't ever really even thought about a dynamo hub, but for $99 I thought there was really no way for me to lose. I...

I guess what I don't care for is that you "replaced" the 2016 motor with an older motor (if it's true as the OP posted.) As far as the $200 incurred by the customer, as a business, you should have...

I don't know why people have a different experience. The Stromer, Specialized turbo, and Bionx are all direct drive motors. They are completely silent when I've ridden any of those bikes. I rode...

Hmmm... that's interesting. I wonder if a 350 watt bionx can be set up that way, also? I'll have to continue to watch for any modifications in the e-bike laws in Washington and get mine modified...

It looks like it will work fine. But, yeah, you gotta get that rear blinky more visible.

If you're not tech savvy and not great at wrenching your own bike, I'd seriously consider buying your e-bike from an "e-bike only" bike shop. And even then, I would recommend buying a bike from an...

I didn't notice any Easy Motion bikes. I'm sure there were several other e-bike manufacturers that didn't participate. For instance, no Pedago bikes. I didn't see Ezee, Felt, Raleigh, Haibike. ...

Unfortunately, my own Bionx is of the 350 watt variety (I still love it.) I understand that the 500 watt Bionx can only be set to 28mph on OEM equipment that has an agreement with Bionx allowing it. ...

There are two battery options for an ST2 or ST2s - 814wh with a 150 km (93 miles) range or a 983wh with a 180 km (111 miles) range. I'm sure those ranges are calculated on the lowest level of...

Nice video. I don't think I could spend that kind of time in a saddle. I'd need to have several battery swaps. I read that you only had one spare battery on your ride. It seems that you were...
