Welcome and nice town you live in there. I've never been to Traverse City and looked up some photos. Really nice. I've only been around Detroit and Clarkston in the past. Looks to be a lot further north. How are the winters there. Do you use winter tires with studs?

Thank you for the welcome. I do like this town, and bikes are a big deal around here.You didn't say what part of the state you're in.

I live in Niles, which is about as south as you can get and still live in Michigan.

Welcome! Where did you order your ebike from? I've been eyeing Brilliant Bikes but scared to pull the trigger without physical test.
