    Electric Bike Campaign Promotional Video
    Rob Riches



    Published on Oct 12, 2016
    This is a campaign video I produced and starred in for a new electric bike company in California: www.SilionCycles.net - Besides fitness, I like to make things. I was always building stuff with LEGO as a kid, sketching out concept cars, and loved those model car kits. At collage, I became interested in video, and wanted to make music videos for MTV. My passion for fitness took soon took over, but I never lost my passion for cinematography. This video campaign which I created for Silicon Cycles to showcase their new eBikes appealed to me in a big way, as I've always been a fan of bikes (I was heavily into mountain biking as a teenager), and I got to work with some really cool people in some awesome locations around Los Angeles. (and yes - that is me in the video on the trails, and yes - the dude on the city bike really is an Adam Levine lookalike!!)

    Moustache Lundi 26 Video Review - Stylish & Sturdy Deep Step-Thru Ebike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Jan 20, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/mousta... The Moustache Lundi 26 is a stylized step-thru with a high-end drive system from Bosch at a very reasonable price point, optional NuVinci CVT or Shimano Di2 drivetrain upgrades improve shifting. Moustache is a French company that has been around for several years in Europe, the Lundi is their flagship model available in several colors and one "fits most" frame size. Awesome utilitarian accessories including tubular fenders, an Aluminum coated chain cover, AXA cafe lock, basic seat post suspension, integrated LED lights and sturdy rear rack. The frame is rigid, there's no suspension fork and the seat post shock isn't great, unique handle bars make mounting your own accessories difficult, no bottle cage bosses on the seat tube.

    Tern Vektron Video Review - Quality Folding Ebike with Bosch Centerdrive
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Feb 15, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/tern/v... The Tern Vektron (also called the Tern Elektron initially) is a premium folding electric bike with Bosch drive system and leading warranty, sturdy and quiet with plenty of adjustability (seat post height and stem angle), smart accessories help you carry gear and stay dry without noise. The folding joints are thick and sturdy but don't have sharp edges, both latches have two-step locks to keep them secure and they fold flat to stay out of the way, a magnet and rubber strap keep the bike from coming unfolded. Excellent Schwalbe Balloon tires with puncture protection, reflective sidewalls and a larger diameter for improved comfort, you also get bright integrated lights and a delay feature for safety when parking. Neat quick release pedal design, both wheels quick release as well, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, easy to remove battery without taking the saddle and seat post off, the bike costs more, only comes in one size and the new Purion display is not removable. This review was filmed with help from Steve Boyd, the General Manager of Tern United States

    Ebike Tips and Myths, Discussing with a Professional
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Feb 18, 2017
    While being fitted for the Specialized Turbo Levo I got to pick Erik’s brain about the differences between normal bikes and electric bikes. He helped me to address the myths and rumors about ebike performance and forecast the space. Erik has participated in Specialized Bicycle University (SBU) and earned multiple certifications (including Level 1 Fitting). He worked for Peloton Cycles in Fort Collins, Colorado when this interview took place.

    Erik is an avid cycling fan, he loves unpowered bicycles and was able to present a balanced perspective on the space in my opinion. He got his first bike at age 13 and learned on his own how to tune them and build them. He now works at the professional level. Here are some of the myths we discussed:

    - Drivetrain Care: always make sure it’s lubed and cleaned, if you crash it’s important to go to a local bike shop for a tuneup and checkup. This is especially important for mid-drive ebikes if you crash on the drivetrain side. If your ebike doesn’t have a kickstand (as many electric mountain bikes do no) gently lay it down on the non-drive side.
    - Disc Brakes: they aren’t as difficult to work with or expensive as some people think, they don’t require as frequent tuneups because alignment stays and there’s no cable stretch. Don’t pump the brake levers if the wheel is off, the disc rotor should be in there.
    - Full Suspension: you can actually climb better with suspension at times even though it seems like “wasted energy” if it’s setup properly with sag, the new valving technology improves your traction and you get better comfort.
    - Suspension Lockout: you don’t need a solid true lock, a bit of give and movement can be good and reduce damage on parts and valves.
    - Tubeless: there are many benefits to going tubeless these days (reduced weight, no snake-bite flat tires, can run at lower tire pressure), this is a big benefit for plus sized tires which pops tubes a lot with lower PSI. Reduce weight, improve control and also improve braking.
    - Electric Assist: doesn’t spin out and wreck trails, it does have a soul and allow people to go further and ride if they have an injury, you’re not accelerating hard or slipping tires… you can still skid on an ebike or regular and that causes the most damage (along with riding in mud).
