Due to some technical issues and limited bandwidth we had audio chopping out and lost the video signal towards the end. As a result of this, I’m pausing the EBR Podcast for the time being. One of the challenges of my nomadic lifestyle is getting reliable Internet and it’s frustrating to present this information in a way that could be misinterpreted.
This week Chris and I spoke about aftermarket wired-in bike light options for electric bicycles. Chris had a bunch of products on hand and presented his experience installing them for customers over the past several years. Safety gear came up and then we transitioned into rebate programs and the acquisition of Felt by Rossignol. The following links will take you to some of the topics we discussed:
