I just rode the Montague Crosstown for the first time, and found it to be a very nice bike. It’s easy to ride, and it changes gears easily. If my aunt hadn't told me, I wouldn't have known that you can fold this bike and put it in the trunk of a car! I would definitely buy … Continue reading Montague Crosstown mini-review
It’s been 5 years since we first read about the Shimano STEPS system. And just last week, we received the first set of e-bikes with this system, which includes the center mount motor, battery and console designed by Shimano, and incorporated into some of Trek’s 2016 e-bike lineup: the Trek Lift+ and the Trek Conduit+. … Continue reading A 10-speed Boomers can Age Gracefully with: the Trek Lift+

Almost a year later, I realize we haven't shared much about … Continue reading Tern! Tern! Tern!

Yesterday's snowfall and upcoming warmer temperatures means today might be one of the last chances to ride in the snow with our Felt LEBOWSKe ebike. Meenal took it out for the day's first ride, and the rest of us anticipated her return so we could take it on our own adventure. The fat tires provided … Continue reading A jaunt in the snow with our “Big” Lebowske
