    Hello from Montebello, Québec!

    Welcome Remi! I remember having a wonderful crepe with my wife across from the Montebelo hotel just a few decades ago! Beautiful area.

    Hello all that own a Trek!

    Lol, thanks! I will be 66 next month. We’ll see how long I can actually take winter riding in the weeks ahead!

    Hello all that own a Trek!

    I am not at all concerned, maybe I should be? The bike has been bullet-proof in all conditions I have ridden... water, wet snow... I plan to keep riding trusting Trek’s assurances this is an all weather bike. What Alaskan said! I won’t submerge the motor though!

    Hello all that own a Trek!

    Planning to take my Trek Verve + 3 in to my dealer for its first post-purchase visit since early July, 5000+ km later. Probably about 140 charging cycles on the battery, a new derailleur after an altercation with a stick in the woods, couple of bent spokes as a result. Changed the chain guard...

    E- Gloves ?

    I have a pair of these. Last about 2 hours on highest temperature. Wore them for a couple of hours at around 0F and they were good. I also have their socks that I wear in not particularly warm but ideal for cycling DuBarry Gore-Tex sailing boots. Superbly comfortable winter combination with...

    Show us pictures of where you ride your ebikes!

    First significant snowfall here today, temperature around freezing. Marathon GT 365 tires got their first test of that, and performed pretty well on and off-road.

    Replica airguns

    No Ken, the guns came with those grips... I did put a better finish on them though. I like what you’ve done with wood grips... maybe I’ll get ambitious and replace the plastic ones with walnut. Thanks!

    Replica airguns

    Three of my favourites... nickel Beretta with wood grips (.177 pellet, 6 shot), black Beretta with laser sight, (BB, full auto option), Sig Sauer with wood grips (.177 pellet, single shot). The Sig is super accurate (for a pistol)... target below is 10 shots at 30 feet. I got my first one (well...

    Colder here now, temps just above freezing. Most of the leaves gone from the trees. Some photos from riding in my nearby Provincial Park (Pinery)

    Tell us about your handles and avatars and why you chose them

    Mine is just a common term used in navigating, as I have done for over 40 years sailing, another interest. I have raced and cruised our 35 foot sailboat “Respite” for thousands of miles, mostly on Lake Huron (seen in the background of my avatar). My wife is not up to sailing any more, so I am...

    Is it just me or is nobody complaining about their Trek/Bosch ebikes?

    Hit 5000 km with mine this week, since July. No problems other than of my doing, hasn’t been back to the Trek dealer yet.

    What are your cold weather ebike limits?

    Stefan, good points. As a sailor, I am familiar with the concept of apparent wind; it’s critical for racing upwind or downwind. I finally feel as of today that I have my winter gear in order. Goretex sailing boots with heated socks, lined rain pants, layered a Goretex windbreaker over a fleece...

    What are your cold weather ebike limits?

    Still figuring that out. I intend to ride in the snow, if not too deep. Not on ice.

    Complete this sentence... "For me, ebiking means..."

    Today I rose up from the couch Tried a stretch, but got an “ouch” Thought, “my e-bike’s just the thing to make my aching muscles sing!” Dug out my heated socks and gloves The ones my freezing digits love Added rainproof pants and boots A windbreaker completes the suit. Topped it off with toque...

    Anyone figured out a chain ring protection option for pant cuffs?

    I replaced my OEM guard on my Verve 3 with this one from Amazon. Working well. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07N76R2CK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Redshift ShockStop seatpost and stem installed

    I have been riding for a couple thousand km on my ShockStop seat post and stem now, and agree percymon. There is lots of time to finesse the settings and inserts. Meanwhile, both will serve you much better than rigid posts or stems. I did a 35 km ride through my nearby Provincial Park including...

    Trek Powerfly FS 4

    I have been working on my old Norco dual suspension bike... it was a pretty good one in it’s day, nice and light. Borrowed the Deore derailleur from it until my new one came in. Have now put straight handle bars on it with the OE adjustable stem from my Verve. Everything is pretty good on it...

    Trek Powerfly FS 4

    Oh, I really like the gray. Almost as much as Cheeta’s darker one.
