    Good lord, I’d have to remove the bell and headlight from the handlebars and install an air conditioner. Quite a day.

    Good lord, that setup in your city is amazing. I have never seen anything like that. Good looking building there on the right, too.

    What's the Best Electric Bike, or at Least Your Favorite!

    Another young 68 here. I came from 20 years of a Cannondale T400 drop bar touring bike that I loved, along with a Cannondale mountain bike I had in the late 90s till I gave it to my son. The T400 spent four years hanging in the garage until I decided I really missed riding in 2016. Did that long...

    2020 Giant E-Bike Models and Photos

    As a very happy Toughroad owner I am intrigued by that Revolt, but mine has a 500 battery. I get why they are leaning to the smaller one with the extra pack, but I would have to have that and there’s another little pile of cash. It would add up to some pretty decent range for touring operations...

    What the hell, David, it’s summer and you’ve got another whole month to rattle off another quick 5000 km... how hard can it be? Congrats, huge numbers in a gorgeous place

    My Favorite Bike Trails in the Northeastern US

    The Ashawilticook trail in Western Mass is a good one. Paved, flat, maybe 12 miles or so between North Adams and Pittsfield, Mass. Goes past a very lovely reservoir, a really nice day out. Recommend going from the senior center parking lot in North Adams, down and back. Also, in NY, the Warren...

    Show us pictures of where you ride your ebikes!

    A sunny day over 50 degrees farenheit, most likely the last of its kind this year... so, a short ride through the Revolutionary War, at the Saratoga National Battlefield. About 11 miles around a closed loop of a single lane, one way road with a bike lane, very low speed limit and no reason for...

    Well, I did for about fifty feet anyhow... after that it was hike a bike till it dried out and I looped back on roads instead of the path later on. Nice ride along a small lake that I usually only do on weekends when people expect to see cyclists out there. This time of year I think it’s...

    Well, this worked fine the other day on snow! Not so much on rock hard ice today. I'm getting too old to go swooping through the air when the bike decides to lay down for a rest all of a sudden.

    Como Crank Sprocket Change.

    Maybe a stupid question, but does changing the size and teeth on the chainring have any effect on the odometer or speedometer accuracy? I thin it doesn’t? I am considering going down from 48 to 42 teeth on my Toughroad for this nebulous idea I’m having about the Virginia mountains in the spring.

    Just Posted to Giant USA Website 2020 ROAD E+ 1 PRO (28MPH)

    No mention of the extra battery pack that supposedly will be available on the new Revolt. You’d think they would highlight this given the smaller battery on a 28mph bike from the 2019 version. And Mtl_Biker, Di2 is electronic shifting.
