ZIPPING AROUND ON THE EEYO EBIKE

Photo by Jon Ross

The Gogoro Eeyo is an electric bike, or “eBike”, a mode of transportation that has become increasingly popular — even more so since the Coronavirus pandemic — as an environmentally friendly, energy efficient, and health conscious way to get around. We’ve been writing about eBikes for a while now, since their evolution from junkyard delivery bike with a big battery, to a refined breed of modern commuter bikes. Almost all the major bike companies, along with a host of other bespoke brands, now manufacture an eBike.

The eBikes we are talking about are not like a moped or motorcycle. They do not have a throttle. You have to pedal for your power, and on some bikes harder than others. Class 1 eBikes max out at 20 mph,and Class 3 at 28 mph. Class 2 models are different in that they have throttles and don’t require pedaling. That’s typically what you see the delivery guys riding and not really an eBike. When buying an eBike you want to be sure it has the power, range, and comfort you need for your ride. How long is your commute? Are there a lot of hills? Do you like to ride fast?

The advantage of these “pedal-assist” eBikes, even for the most fit and active rider, is an extra boost of power that is there when you need it… on a long commute, if you’re in a rush, or you’d prefer not to arrive sweaty at your destination. Plus, they’re a heck of a lot of fun! And for you bike geeks and design obsessed, a few of the latest models are so sleek and chic, with the battery and motor integrated into the frame, you’d hardly even know they were eBikes! Check out these 3 new models that are sure to appeal. Read More

 

The Bike Commuter Style Guide

If you’re like many these days, you are riding your bike to work, run errands, or just get around town. There are certain basics you need on the road, especially as the weather turns cooler. A rain jacket, insulated layer, sunglasses, bike helmet, and more… here are a few chic and functional essentials to ride in style!

 
CLOCKWISE TOP LEFT: PATAGONIA NANO-AIR VEST $199. The versatile Patagonia Nano-Air vest is an essential layer for any sporty activity. It’s warm and stretchy, with lightweight breathable insulation to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable — on and off the bike.

LINUS PRONTO 10 BICYCLE $895. Linus bikes appeal to that sophisticated rider looking for classic style at a reasonable price. The Linus Pronto 10 is their premium commuter, and features 10 speeds with a trigger shifter, all-weather hydraulic disc brakes, premium alloy tubing — all in a sleek Matte Meteor package.

VELOCIO RECON SNAP JACKET $289. From chilly trail rides to your everyday commute, the Recon Snap Jacket has the technical features you need in a bike jacket with casual style for all-day wear.

Lift Off

 

 

It’s surfing without a wave, snowboarding without the powder, flying without a plane… it’s eFoiling, your new (albeit expensive) board sport! An eFoil is a motorized surfboard with a sleek hydrofoil design that lifts the board out of the water at speeds of up to 25 mph with control of a wireless handheld remote. Lift, the family-owned, Puerto Rico based company, is the creator of the best-selling eFoil on the market — and one can be yours for a mere $12,000.

You are likely familiar with the concept of foiling as it applies to sailing, and have seen the hydrofoil race boats that have become standard design in the America’s Cup. As speed increases, wing-like foils propel the board up and you float above the surface as the blade slices through the water below. A two-hour charge lets you ride for about 90 minutes.

Described by some as a cross between a Jet Ski and a surfboard, thankfully the electric motor is silent, and eFoiling takes some athletic skill to master. I’ve been wanting to demo an e-Foil for a while, and Lift hooked me up with a lesson in Montauk, L.I. earlier this week. Kai Costanzo, owner of KaiKai sandals located at Gossman’s Dock (and other locations) was my instructor. Telling me most people don’t stand up on their first lesson, such would be my motivation!

Mason’s Tennis has been a part of the New York City shopping landscape since 1975 — a go-to destination for NYC’s tennis set and tourists alike. Opened by founder Mark Mason during tennis’s heyday, when players like Chris Evert, Bjorn Borg, Guillermo Vilas, John McEnroe, and Vitas Gerulaitas ruled the courts — and brands like Fila, Tacchini, and Ellesse made tennis style as big a part of the game as the matches themselves.

Mason’s is one of those original NYC specialty stores you don’t really find anymore, small but jam-packed, like a hardware store that’s got everything you need. Here it’s tennis — racquets, apparel, shoes, and accessories. The store was originally located on 7th Ave between 57th and 58th St, and moved to its current location on 53rd between Park and Madison in 1999. Read More
