I am a GPS geek.  When I travel I carry a GPS for automobile navigation.  I carry a handheld to find my way around trails and cities.  A third sits mounted on my bike.

Now Garmin has come out with a device that handles all functions in one device.  The Garmin Montana 650t is not elegant in appearance, but it is certainly elegant in functionality.

TerraCycle Cockpit Mount

TerraCycle Cockpit Mount

One of the problems with electric assist recumbent bikes and trikes is that there’s not just enough room to put stuff.  We’re talking stuff like a camera, or GPS, cell phone, etc.  But TerraCycle has come up with a unique system to put on almost as many add-ons as you can come up with.  The TerraCycle Cockpit Mount system uses two clamps attached to a long tube and a short tube.

You can create a variety of configurations, and the dual clamps will allow you to mount with virtually any articulation to keep the gadgets clear of your knees and wheels.  TerraCycle offers a variety of other clamps and mounts to further [Read more…]

Testing Studded Snow Tires on an Electric Bike!

Well this may seem a little wacky but I am testing some studded snow tires. And yes, it does snow in Arizona!

It may be hard to believe but Flagstaff Arizona is at 7000 ft elevation and we tend to get a lot of snow in the winter.

I currently have the Schwalbe Marathon Winter tires mounted on the Hebb electric bike that I have in for testing and review. They have a [Read more…]

Review of the Hebb Electro Glide Electric Bike

Okay, here is the Hebb Electro Glide electric bike review!  In a nut shell; this has to be one of the more “solid” e-bikes that I have tested.  Hebb refers to their bikes as the “Affordable Luxury Bike” and it seems to be true.

I have ridden this bike for a couple of weeks up hills, on paved streets, down gravel paths, through snow and ice (I used studded snow tires 🙂 ), into headwinds, etc.  The sometimes harsh conditions of Flagstaff Arizona have definitely put this electric bike to the test. [Read more…]

Bionx Electric Bike Kit Review

I have ridden many different bikes with the Bionx electric bike conversion kit and I have to say that it is probably the most refined ebike kit that you can buy.

To compare it to cars, it is like the Mercedes Benz of electric bike kits.

This is a review based on a number of rides on the Bionx electric bike kit.  This is not an in depth review based on hundreds of miles of use, etc.

I just wanted to let you know what I think of the system based on some ride experiences.

Here is a video about the Bionx system:

What I like about the Bionx ebike kit:

  • The way the system adds assistance is so seamless it just feels like [Read more…]
