    Rack Attack

    The end of a metal coat hangar? Very simple, just throwing it out there.

    Playing with Mission Control makes it feel like a new bike

    Mr. Max, Ha! You're gonna love it. Careful, it can be addicting. Actually I ride primarily in Sport, saving Turbo for hills and the last 6-8 miles for the run home. So using those modes I estimate a 50-55 mile range. Please post your experiences. :)🚲⚡

    Just picked up my 2021 Vado 5 SL. What a beauty!

    Cable Dude, Wow, that is one very pretty bike! It looks so sleek. Did you intentionally get silver so it would match your Chevy Traverse? 😆😊 Regarding the Kinect: yes, Cirrus (or any skilled person with a drill) can modify the seat post. My Trek class one has the light mounted on the seat and I...

    Agreed! And thanks to all for the feedback on the PNW. Gonna keep the Kinect. I too replaced just one spring with the next higher weight bracket. (No weight change for me, just at the upper end of the weight bracket) It’s perfect! Between the 2.25” (5.71 cm) Schwalbe tires and the seat post...

    Playing with Mission Control makes it feel like a new bike

    Congrats on all your "new bikes". What fun. I myself am a torque and adrenaline junkie and quite often turn the bike on turbo. This summer is my hill summer so I deliberately seek out routes with multiple rolling hills. It's even more fun if there's a headwind. Love the feel of the smooth...

    Rochrunner, What didn't you like with the PNW post? I was thinking of getting a dropper post but also wanted the suspension. Granted, it would not be as nice as my current Kindect. Thanks.

    Cycling Clothes

    Ditto to what Stefan said above. However I make sure my bike “wears” bright lights in order to be seen by drivers.

    20 MPH vs. 28 MPH Ebikes

    Good point. Actually the class 3 are officially illegal. Enforcement is another point since visually there’s no difference. I personally prefer to take the class 3 on a wide shouldered road. It’s just easier to turn it loose. If I do go on a trail I go slower, especially if there’s a multitude...

    Ha! You’re letting him ride the new Giant. Maybe he needs to buy lunch for you both. Lol

    20 MPH vs. 28 MPH Ebikes

    Whoo hoo! Congrats mh12345. I have both class 3 and class 1. Maybe it’s the Brose motor with the class 3 but the 90 nm of torque is addicting. It’s so smooth fast and responsive. My class 1, while way lighter for hauling, is only 50 nm of torque. And the Bosch Active Plus cuts out at exactly...

    And your brother having your other ebike (lovelec?) is a good deal for him. 😃🚴🏾‍♂️

    Gardens, Fountains, and Sculptures - pics from your rides.

    One of our local gardens has tons of flowers and fountains. Found some neon pink blossoms that match my Pimped-Out-In-Pink Vado.

    Analog bicycle? Acoustic Bicycle??

    Same here! Those are such weird names. Keep it simple with non-powered.
