    Turning 30 in 2018: ebike vacation ideas

    I like to relax on vacation but I like the idea of seeing the one and outs of a city by bike. I love food, especially seafood, and I want to limit myself to Canada or South America (even though Iceland intrigues me!) But I'm open to suggestions! I'm not a great flyer, but my bucket list includes...

    Proviz Reflective Jackets - Have any experience?

    I like my lightweight windbreaker jacket, but I'm on the fence about replacing it with a cycling jacket like the proviz. I currently wear a safety vest (construction worker style) on my night ride home. Kind of embarrassing but I like the illusion of safety. Does anyone have experience with...

    Fenders and Frame Locks

    Need help. My Abus frame lock cant comfortably wrap around my Surface604 fenders AND be ziptied to the rear racks stays connecting to the seat post. I don't want to abandon the idea of having it on my rear wheel as a convenient lock for coffee runs, but I don't know how to use it now. I'd have...

    Best methods to secure components

    My incoming rook from surface604 has quick release seat/front wheel and toolfree headset adjustment. I'm wondering if anyone has used any of the locking skewer or bolt products used to secure these parts by replacing stock fasteners with tamper proof ones. What we're your experiences? I'll be...

    The Stormtrooper: My White Surface Rook

    So I decided to transfer my chatter about my future bike to this new thread, as continuing in my search thread would be a bit misleading. I'm going to try to blog and vlog as my bike gets delivered and assembled and as I break it in. Right now I'm looking into the accessories for security. I...

    Reflective Vinyl Wrap: Colour Matching a Battery

    Does anybody know if using an automotive grade vinyl wrap on a downtube battery to make it better colour match will impact how the battery functions and/or will impact warranty. I'm considering using this kind of modification to a surface 604 rook on a white model so the black battery doesn't...

    Rydesafe Reflective Decals

    After reading my city bylaws I noticed I need reflective tape on front and rear of my bike. White for front fork, red for rear. I did what I always do and google and found a video on this adorable dudes, which even seem to come in colours I've been perusing in bikes I like. I love the idea...

    Question for experienced builders: wattage

    I know any changes to an bike can void a warranty but I'm going to ask, as I am curious. Can an owner 'govern' their bike's Max wattage output? Through the menu, controller, or something else? I don't want a cop to google my bike and ticket me for using a 750w on a sidewalk when anything...

    Volton: Battery compartment with cover

    The latest Volton video showed a lot of issues with removing and replacing the battery within it's compartment. I was really excited to see the replaceable cover for the battery compartment, which is a vital piece in my opinion for commuters who want the protection during rainy days. Are there...

    Canadian Winter Ready Comfort Commuter - Research Stalemate

    I could really use some help. I am a non driver because driving isn't practical for my income or my mental health but mostly because I work less than 5km from my current home. I have been seriously researching electric bikes because while I like biking to work, arriving sweaty or numb legged...
