    Rip Current S

    Remain patient. Took me about a month before I got everything right for my bike but my patience paid off with $250 worth of gift cards that went to pay for a fast charger. The bike itself is so much fun. I’ve put over 600 miles all over Los Angeles County and was recently up in Marin visiting my...

    What's it like to ride a fat bike?

    I own a fat bike, a Juiced RCS since January of this year and also live in SoCal. I’ve put about 600 miles and absolutely love it. I’ve ridden this bike all over Los Angeles County. I prefer riding on bike paths but in order to get there I need to ride the streets of L.A. When I refer to bike...

    To "Juice" or not ?

    I purchased my RCS on Black Friday 2018, and experienced several issues. Some due to Juiced and on one occasion due to UPS. For example the wrong size bike, no fender, wrong size mounting brackets, etc. I’ve posted about them previously. In fact, I did not have my first ride until January 1...

    Do You Remove the Battery when not riding?

    I removed the battery for the first time after riding 500+ miles only because I placed it in my car rack. No issues.

    @Timan did you take the San Gabriel River Bike Trail from Azusa to Seal Beach, or the Rio Hondo from El Monte to Long Beach?

    Throwing your leg over an E-Bike

    There’s a previous thread called mounting and dismounting. I use the following approach mentionEd in the thread, my wife describes it like mounting a horse: I'm 52 and have no trouble mounting the diamond frame bikes even with panniers or trunk bags in place. I push off on one pedal and swing...

    Latest mirror advice?

    @KLee the handle bars are awesome. The best modification I’ve made so far due to the slight rise of 2.5” and the 45 degree sweep. It ergonomically fits. It’s like holding on to a wheel barrel and provides me not only with comfort to my wrist and neck, but confidence in controlling and...

    Latest mirror advice?

    @SirJonathan I gotta say after putting about 50 miles with these Jones h bars, I really love them. The 2.5” raise for me is perfect. I’m 5’8” 150” and with the standard bar I was leaning too far forward which numbed my hands and strained my neck a bit. Also, when turning would have to extend...

    Latest mirror advice?

    @Fildil I just got the Jones h bar loop with the 2.5 inch riser. Love it. Now trying to decide where I want to place my Hafny. Have any pictures showing where you placed yours? So much room on the new handle bars I’m going to get one for the right too.

    Set up your Cockpit

    Good article. I definitely benefit from re-positioning my brake levers inward away from the grips. It allows me to maintain a firm grip of the bike with three fingers and thumb, while my forefinger is on the brake lever in the ready to pull the trigger so to speak. Makes me feel safer when...
