    One issue you may run into with some ebikes is large diameter spokes, like 12 or 11 gauge. Not many shops equipped to custom cut and thread those.

    I bought the jersey and bibs a couple of years ago. I think postage was only 10 bucks to Canada. I'm not sure if that even covered the cost, I'd have willingly paid more.
