Hardware: Beringer Master Cylinder Recall Notice



Master Cylinders not equipped with a fluid eyesight are not concerned.


On some Brake and Clutch Master Cylinders manufactured between November 2006 and March 2007, the fluid level eyesight may fall out and allow the fluid to drain out which could result in a crash and/or serious injury or death. This problem is due to a material defect detected by our Fluid Eyesight supplier.

A replacement Fluid Level Eyesight with sealing o-ring and retaining clip will be sent to you at no charge. Please replace this component immediately.

If you do not feel comfortable performing this task, please send your master cylinder to : BERINGER USA. 4050 Spencer Street, Suite I, Torrance, CA 90503

The Eyesight will be replaced for you free of charge and the Master Cylinder returned to you, freight prepaid.

Made of clear see-through material. (The new Eyesight is white in appearance).

Master Cylinder production date is indicated on the underside of the main body after the part number. Example : BRO12 17.5 05/07

05/07 indicates the fifth week of 2007, i.e. Jan 29 to Feb 2nd 2007.

Production Dates concerned : 44-06 thru 14-07

How to Replace the Fluid Eyesight :

1/ Remove the fluid reservoir cap by loosening and removing the 2 torx screws.

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

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

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
