Well gang.  After some thing, and my tax refund, I purchased a new Bicycle.  It's made by Giant Bicycles, and it's called the Momentum "I need Street".  Does anybody else have one??
I like that they thought of something "newish". How rigid is that frame?

Hauling beer mostly... I like that if it's empty you won't even notice its there. And it holds your spur quite well, so it's very maneuverable.

I have a new (to me) Diamondback Response mountain bike on the way. :tu: nelly1974 and I made a little deal. I already have an agreement to sell my other bike. Pics when I get it.

There's no such thing as "Too pretty to carry".  There's only "Too pretty NOT to carry"...... >:D

The only issue is that a certain someone who won't be named (but was just quoted :P ) didn't clean the mud off the frame and rear wheel..... ::)

Finally got the position sorted, and think it's pretty much finished. :tu:

I'm not going to ask what kind of tires you have on that  :D

I just picked this up a couple weeks ago. It is the CX-1 cyclocross bike from Nashbar. It has 700x28 road tires on it now. I have an alternate wheelset with knobbies to swap on for rough stuff.

Thanks  :tu:   It is nice not having to have a battle trying to battle the frame to get wheelsets on and off. Doing that on this bike is a dream  :cheers:

So, I have a 22 mile commute to work in fairly hilly Baltimore County.  Years ago, I could do the 44 mile round trip once per week when the weather permitted but it was a fair bit of work.  Time takes its toll and the commute just got to be so un-fun that I haven't made the trip in the last 4 or 5 years. 

However, two weeks ago, I did some updating and modifications on my 1996 Mongoose Crossway 450:



Sometimes, a little help goes a long ways... :whistle:



One still has to pedal, but with a little assist, the killing nature of the hill climbs are pretty well mitigated.

That little unit on my bike is 750W motor with a 52V 11.3ah battery.  But I did have to assemble it myself.

I did consider "upgrading" my current bike with a e-bike kit myself (250W tho), but decided that factory built e-bike with German components instead of Chinese is worth few hundred extra euros :tu:

Yea, I've spent the last 18 months reading reviews about various options.  The price to get in with a fully assembled unit that is adequate for long distance commuting was in the $2500-3000 range.  It was just a bit steep for me, just to see if it was "doable".  The kit I bought was just over $1000 ($450 of that was just the battery pack) from Luna Cycle in California.   They say they up-spec the controller units to make them more reliable.  So far, it's been fantastic.  Hopefully durable too. 

I definitely want to read your review on your new ebike.
