For those that want an e-bike that gives an assist but doesn't do the peddling for you. From Momentum Bicycles.

Hopefully this doesn't break any rules but the kickstarter for the next-gen Foldylock just came out today and if you order it you get like 35% off the price so in the US it adds up to $88. (with shipping price included).



I have the older Red/Black Foldylock and it's been my favorite bike lock so I definitely ordered the new one.

Just thought I'd mention this to anyone interested in getting a new lock. You'll have to google to find the kickstarter but it shouldn't be hard to find.

I have the big Kryptonite chain and the classic foldylock and they've both been good. I don't really trust my bike to just one lock. I want my bike to be as annoying as possible for thieves to try and steal.

So, I have a few months of riding the new SRAM AXS wireless shifting. I will NEVER go back to a cable again. Shifting is precise and virtually flawless.

Well, I finally got tired of crawling around when working on my bike. I got a bike work stand.

No, I didn't adhere to my adage, "buy once, cry once". I just couldn't bring myself to spend $275 for the Park Tool stand. It's really great. But, I don't need great to wash the bikes, clean and lube the chains, and do routine maintenance. I just need something so I don't have to bend over, or sit on the floor.

This was the result of my agonizingly laborious research, endless lamenting, and pre-buyers remorse. For $70, it's just fine. I don't need $200 more of fine.


It arrived today and it took all of 10 minutes to unbox, set up and hang my bike.

This would be one hell of a ride.

Not having a bike stand sucks.
