I'm sure most of you understand how difficult this category is !
I enclose my last letter to him from the Supermotard club in Colombia!
If any of my friends in the USA and the UK could help him I would be over
the moon!
Even if its letting him know that there are people there at the track that
know who he is! that he's done well so far!
He needs a bit of moral support! HES A LONG WAY FROM HOME!
And if any of my suppliers would like to help him out, well I would be
I don't write these kind of letters normally asking for help and support
maybe I should more often! I wish I had done at the start of the season !

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Haibike Urban, Race, Superrace Fork Recall

Product recall of all Haibike XDURO Race, Superrace and Urban models  Schweinfurt, 14th February 2017 – Product recall at Haibike: XDURO Race, Superrace and Urban models were sold on the market featuring forks which exhibit rather unstable material. This might result in premature rupture and may ultimately lead to a fork break. This poses an enormous safety and injury risk for every user. Thus, the lower Franconian bicycle manufacturer decided to perform this recall. Affected are the following models of different model years: - Haibike XDURO Urban (model year 2014, 2015) - Haibike XDURO Urban RC (MY 2016) - Haibike XDURO Race (MYs 2014, 2015) - Haibike XDURO Superrace (MYs 2014, 2015) - Haibike XDURO Race S RX (MY 2016) - Haibike XDURO Race S PRO (MY 2016) - Haibike XDURO Urban S RX (MY 2016) - Haibike XDURO Urban S PRO (MY 2016) „The safety of our eBikes and their riders has highest priority for us. Therefore, we perform extensive endurance tests at external testing institutes

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
