Redmond, OR- September 28-29

Wow! This last weekend was a rush! The dirt section was technical, leading into a fast straight away and a twisted pavement section. Many a wheel was bent and there were quite a few crashes. The weather decided to cooperate a bit more on Saturday than it did on Friday, so we didn’t completely freeze, but by the time the Main event came around Saturday evening, it was very chilly.

Doni Wanat, rider and team manager, was in Redmond a bit early, helping to design and build the track. During the Promoter practice on Friday, Doni did very well, taking it easy and testing out the track. Unfortunately, Doni only got in one good practice on Saturday before he started having problems with his bike. He finished 5th in his heat race, landing him on the 3rd row in the starting grid for the final race. Due to engine problems with his main bike, he almost didn’t make it. With his mechanic’s frantic fixes, Doni was able to ride it in the main, taking it easy because of clutch problems. He finished 11th.

Travis Marks tore through the track this weekend, racing through the turns and passing competitors up in the dirt section. During the main event, Marks took off out of row 2 in the grid like a rocket! Avoiding the pile up in the last turn before the dirt section and quickly making it up to 3rd place. Unfortunately, in the 2nd lap of the dirt section, he hit the back tire of the rider in front of him and went down, losing his momentum. He got back up and was going hard, when he suddenly slowed. It was apparent to spectators that he was taking it easy. Back in the pits after the race, we found out that the shifter was completely gone from the bike and he had been stuck in 2nd for the majority of the race.

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
