In the 90s, while self-employed, married with kids & finally getting a bit flushed with funds, I became addicted & spoiled myself with an awesome @cannondalebikes, but that was a generation ago. When I had a few hours, I used to wear tshirts with arabic writing & wander around many muslim cities & towns playing the dumb american tourist who is visiting volunteering for a pro-pal NGO when ever I met with the locals with my basic arabic.
Well #technologyrocks#technologynews sure has changed what is on the market.
Now, this generation I am a huge @electricbicycleusa@wheelibikes@email@example.com @electricbicyclebrewing@adventureelectricbicyles#electricbicycle fan & while I lived on #mauihawaii , I kept an awesome @prodecotech#outlaw#bikelife#bikes that got me everywhere over 5 winters. I really miss it as it was #madeinamerica quality!
Now, here in Israel electric bikes are a huge hit, but most of the imports are cheap chinese bikes for the street & the european off-road bikes are a joke while being poorly built & extremly over-priced.
Now add to that drivers who all think they are tank drivers needing to "text as they drive". Examples are seen daily on Tv with so many accidents. More people die on the roads than in our war over land. The majority of casualties are muslims as they drive like allah is guarding their driving skills.
Now, jerusalem is a pretty small city, with great desert trails in every direction within a couple kms. This rocket from @hpcbikes lòoks perfect for the desert-hills from rosh hanikra to metula to eilat.
I wonder if Chris and Derek Hunt will ever make a corporate decision to come wander around the local & the wealthier gulf nations looking for dealers before or after marketing at @eurobike_show this summer
I'd be interested only if it can be shop bought & eventually professionaly repaired. I've had many parts & service issues over the years & a dependable dealer is a blessing
#respect on the bike bros!
