Next week I have some box moving excercises. Train to MTL on Wednesday, Knopfler in concert that night, pack a moving truck next day and Friday drive down.
Tomorrow I'm taking it easy, but will clear space for all the stuff that has been in storage all this time. Living room == storage for now.
The 1000$ Vela electric bike is on Kickstarter and Indiegogo at the same time.
I find the super-oversized seatube to be visually awkward, but the overall setup is not bad. Their implementation using a Bafang 350/250 pedal assist setup makes it a very clean-looking townie, especially since all the cabling is hidden out of view. Wish they showed pictures of the step-through model.

Really, this is about publicity.
Honestly, although ~1600$ US is a large sum of money to many, the combination of things here is pretty impressive. Ok, so 2x8 speed may seem underwhelming, but it means the bike can handle ~350 lbs of rider, cargo and hills together. Schwalbe Big Apple tyres are amazing, at any size and having an integrated dynamo on the front means always having working lights.
If I still lived in a apartment, this would be an amazing and versatile choice given the size. At this point, this would sadly be one too many small folding bike.
But if I did grab one, I would certainly opt for the Reflex edition: More visibility is always good.

And far less boring than the 401.
But their other model, called Ruckus, is an invitation from Honda lawyers, Why ? Because it looks very much like a pedal wheeled Honda Ruckus....
Go check them out.
Looks like this will be something I must play. Check out the way some of the most expensive pledges are sold out. This is a game some folks have no problem plunking down thousands of dollars to appear in the game, art and stories as their favorite alter egos.
I can just see Mike Stackpole killing of the player's character in the eNovella's in an epic nod to his notorious house cleanings. Or should that be House cleaning ?
School started about 3 weeks ago.
Yes, I sense there is a connection.
The rods thread into the BRZ's tow hook spots and were designed and built for "that_guy" from the FT86 forums. Awesome piece of work. The 1Up bike carrier is another excellent component. Great combo. This is how Miata, S2000 and GT86/FR-S/BRZ guys should carry a bike.
