    Yamaha Cross Connect stem change?

    I’ve been riding my Yamaha Cross Connect for a couple of years now and really love it, even more so after changing the seat and getting a suspension seatpost, and am now thinking about raising the bars a bit and perhaps moving them back a little by changing the stem. Does anyone recommend a...

    It’s been very windy the past few days but today was great for riding our new Cross Connects! We’re learning the nuances of our bikes and for my wife especially, hills are no longer the psychological barriers that they once were. Stay safe, everyone!

    E-Bikes suddenly everywhere ?

    FWIW, I am just going to say that my wife and I recently concluded the sale of 2 Ebikes from Mike’s Ebikes.
