Felt HOT Wheels Sixty-8 Cruiser



One hot, I mean, cool bike


Felt makes some pretty cool cruisers. Some may even think they're rad. Perhaps the "king of cool", Felt's "HOT Wheels Sixty-8 Cruiser" model is the epitome of a custom cruiser bicycle in a low-rider style, made awsomely. Known for their use of huge fat tires, the Hot Wheels model is no exception, with the big fat Felt "Thick Brick" white-wall tires front and back. While not quite as huge as the massive 3 inchers on the El Guapo, the Hot Wheels holds it own with a custom paint job, fabricator style framing, disc brakes front and rear and low straight like handle bars. .

I like to picture myself riding this bike on a hot and sunny day, in rush hour traffic, on one of my busier downtown boulevards. I'm wearing a big flat bill cap, big black sunglasses, big tats down my arms, giant comb sticking out the back of my jeans and I have this giant ice cream cone in one hand. Then I slide up to this red light where two dudes on Harleys are sweltering in their leathers and I just look over at them and nod.
The Hot Wheels features a "Rust-Free Aluminum Monocoque Tank Frame" and stuff. And it comes with the "hotwheels' decorative black custom license plates too. It also features an MX-style side stand that fits into the axle. Yea, it's that cool. Way too cool for a regular kick stand.
This bike is a 3-speed with a compact cassette hub w/14mm Axle. No sprockets. Just smooth gearing using the shifter located on the down tube. Like we said. It's cool.

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
