    Gas prices are getting ridiculous and set to really jump. More and more these make sense. My Tundra is limiting my travel/fun. I like the stealthy class more than flash on that. Surprised it doesn’t have a big “cannondale” on the side of it. Low key but I’d still want a very good lock I think

    Just announced that they'll be allowing Class 1 bikes on our local bike paths. I think that it is a good thing, but a lot of folks are losing their minds over it.

    You can just turn your fully eMTB into a commuter with some different wheels. I commute 28 miles on mine twice a week, which means I've reduced driving to only 2 days a week max and can go weeks without filling up the truck. Strap on a rack, some cheap lights, and off you go. No need to buy a separate commuter. This pic shows the difference between the road tire and knobbies on the front.

    I wouldn't have that much of a commute but I'll probably do something similar. Just throw a rack on for groceries and downtown trips. Eventually get a commuter or cargo or just a hardtail unit with the same motor to have a back up, or atleast that's the plan

    I'm psyched, my Fluid VLT (plus hardtail) is on the way. By late next week I'll be the scofflaw on the trail giggling my way along.

    Ok, this one is sorta getting me hot and bothered (if it had better range and slightly higher speed...but I am sure that is on deck for gen 2)

    ^^ I like the one that Budnitz makes. It's a hub motor that charges an internal battery as it's being used. It's so slick. I can't find it in their website to link a pic for the thread

    Pure elegance. I could almost invent a usage for myself to justify one. So clean

    Just tried an ebike for the first time yesterday. They were installing a rack on my new car (I know, I know, but, it was free, and there was like four guys involved), and some dude who was a serious roadie was trying one in their big parking lot. He was flying around and giggling, so, they let me try it. I was flying around and giggling. What fun!

    Really good deal on last year's Specialized , from 3500 down to 2200. Tempting.

    Let's do some livin'
    After, we die

    To a degree, specialized is ahead of the curve when it comes to ebikes. A lot of companies are really closing the gap but they still have a couple features up their sleeve. I heard they have a redesign on a few of their bikes that are going to drop really soon and that they're blowing out old models. Many of their last years models are still relevant. I've been looking the last couple days at the kenevo and figuring possible discounts. They didn't have the blowout price listed and I wasn't factoring being as discounted as what you tried. Going to have to check on pricing now. Damn, that gets the rubber burning.

    Electric Bike Thread

    I built got my Tesoro EQ built on Saturday, and it's been non-stop giggles ever since. 29 x 2.3 rubber, 100mm fork and 28mph pedal assist is nothing but good times around town. I am so fucking stoked on this thing. Just gotta get a rack/pannier setup so I can do grocery/beer runs and my car will stay parked for days at a time.

    15mph max is a deal killer, but I like what they are doing.

    I bet you didn't realize that I rep 4 different rack lines. I bet I could have helped you out

    Are those easily removable batteries or is one that the motor has to come out first?

    There is a mile and a half climb that I have to do to get back to my house on every road bike ride I do and Iíve never been passed on it. Itís not like Iím the fastest guy in the world or anything, itís just not many people do the climb at all. Yesterday an old fat guy sitting really upright on a 60 pound ebike just blew past me like it was nothing. Pretty funny.
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America
    I'm not a part of a redneck agenda

    I have no idea. It seems like it should just come out of the big hatch on the down tube

    Do you need a permit for that? Seems like you should, because it's a fucking weapon.

    I know. It pains me to have to do it. Brakes will have to change and specialized wheels will die countless ways in no time and stand over is poor. Thing is I want at least 160 rear and reasonable length stays. The other option at that point is the yt decoy and , depending on thekenevo blowout price, could be $1500-2000 or more extra. Tech is developing so fast , I just have to get in as cheap as possible. There’s a lot of 150 rear bikes that I wish I could long stroke the shock to get them to 160-165 but the stroke is maxed for their eye to eye (norco, commencal, Rocky, bmc, felt, etc). DaVinci is 450mm cs uggh
    There’s nowrumours that the ski hill might be offering an add on price on top of ski pass for summer biking. I was worried they were going to try to get people to pay each time up the Gondi. 5620 ft mixed(machine built and natural) trail is built but it’s 1500ft climb from top of Gondi to the trail at the top of the hill. Going to need E and travel

    Not only this, but a lot of emtbs in trails.

    Lots of young kids who ride Enduro are on ebikes
