Yesterday was New Bike Day for Keith. And an actual NEW bike, the first one since...umm...my rigid Stumpjumper in the 90s?

I shall no longer be the weakest link when bike path riding with Janel. Luna Fixed Stealth, a 500W e bike cosplaying as a hipster fixie. Specs are good, bike is a really nice piece of design. I'm going to get some black Scotchlite film to add secret reflectivity and lose the wheel reflectors. 

That's pretty slick.  I like how the e-bike bits are hidden, so it looks like a regular bike.  The belt drive is interesting too, I didn't know anyone was doing that.

Belts are becoming more and more common -- low maintenance, longevity, cleanliness. Most require a frame with a break in the rear triangle to install/remove them, but I know of at least one company that makes one that can be split open.

A recent trip to Amsterdam inspired me to look for a junker I could just ride to the store or wherever and not worry about. I failed to find a junker, but I found an older VanMoof, a Dutch bike that's popular with hipsters and tech bros these days, as they're electric but have a hidden battery, connect to your phone, GPS anti-theft, etc.

Mine's got none of that; it has a dynamo front hub powering integrated lights, an internally geared 8-speed hub, and it's anodized, so the finish looks really good for an ~8-year-old bike.

As you can see, they're a bit unconventional.

Finally upgraded from my aging Santa Cruz to a 2016 Kona Process 153.  This thing is amazing.
