    2023 - Our Rides in Words, Photos, Maps and Videos

    I ride alot. I’m not into metrics or documenting my ride with photos, but last week I turned Strava on. I rode 6 out of 7 days last week. Judging by what Strava is telling me, I’ve climbed several million feet in elevation during the last 21,000 miles. No wonder I’m tired.

    Re-using old Tannus Armour inserts in new Johnny Watts tires?

    Exact same thing happened to me. The old armor that was installed in a 2.4 Super Moto X for over a year, would not fit in a new 2.35 Johnny Watts. Not even close!

    Zen Electric Bikes in the News / Media

    Speaking for myself, my iPhone has a tracking feature which allows my wife, using her iPhone, to track me. It works flawlessly. Anything else would just be redundant at best. A simple Apple airbag would serve as a backup also.

    Using the bike as a true commuter/car replacement, I would opt for the larger battery size. Cold weather zaps power, therefore I’d rather have more on tap.
