Two more videos to share. The first is a review of the ABUS Pedelec 2.0 helmet. ABUS makes a lot of different helmets but the Pedelec is geared towards ebikes, something that I haven't seen before. It meets standards which were specifically made for the increased speed of ebikes. The other cool thing is that the Pedelec 2.0 (and many of the other ABUS urban helmets) have built in LEDs. The other video is about the RadWagon 4 which was just recently announced. I think the changes are great though I think it's important to be aware of the smaller wheel size. If you plan to buy the RadWagon 4 I'd have a stock of tubes and perhaps a set of spare tires. I'm really hoping I get to compare the two RadWagons side by side.

That could work. Otherwise I see them mounted on rear racks quite often. Either on top of a rear bag or on top of the rack itself if you're using panniers. You could also hang it on the side.

One thing that crossed my mind is to buy a handlebar extender like this one:

Get rid of the actual bar and attach the 2 supports somewhere on the frame. Then I would just lock the U-lock on them.

I'm looking for solutions to attach my kryptonite new york fahgettaboudit to the frame while I'm riding. It's heavy. The U tube is 18mm (~0.71") diameter and the yellow lock is about 50mm (~1.97").

OMG it's extremely expensive. I can get a Giro MIPS for like 1/3 of the price and some lights for even less than that.

Well, having turn lights doesn't mean giving up on a permanent light, especially one that indicates when you are breaking. It's extra. :-)

If I do go with them, I'll write a review about it in the forums.

Thanks for the Lumos link, I'll check it out.

With all of this talk about mirrors for ebikes I decided to reach out to Hafny and they are sending me a few different varieties to dig into. I'll post a link to the video here once it's live - just waiting a few weeks until I have all of the options to share in one video.
