SwagCycles, e bikes are easy rides when injured
Recently I have been riding the SwagCycle e Bike around when I need some air, as well as the off road hoverboard, more than the skateboard and there’s a really, really good reason for that. It’s not just that the hoverboard is amazing for shooting video, not that an e bike is killer for playing Pokémon Go, but rather that it helps when you have a minor injury and can’t really skate for another week.
Rideables of all types really keep you moving with less impact when healing. That said as of last night, I can now finally skate the 3 foot to 4 foot bowl at Cost Mesa Volcom Skatepark, I did five runs and never fell. To train myself I only wore an elbow pad, forcing me to do tricks I never fall on. Success.
So until then, I’m hoverboarding and riding the e bike and I don’t care who knows it, however all the kids seem to want to try the hoverboard when I want to ride it.
Gabe’s e bike Ollie Challenge
It has come to my attention that our friends up at Braille Skateboarding have taken upon a challenge successfully that we bestowed upon them. I didn’t expect such a response and wow, nice ollie!
See here as Gabe Cruz ‘allows’ this amazing skater (VINNIE BANH go follow him now) to Ollie over his new SwagCycle e bike. Just listen to that horn in slow motion for all the goodness. Gabe is loving this ‘right thumb red button’ horn.
- Try that. Say “Right Thumb Red Button” to anyone on a swag cycle. If it SHUTS OFF, they mistakenly used their left thumb!
The SwagCycle is a riot, I had one on the beach last weekend of summer and the “right thumb red button” horn alone cracks me up.
So, that went well. I still need to test out their 3-4 foot half-pipe.
CHALLENGE: And this is a big one. You know we were initially quite skeptical about being able to ride the T6 off-road hoverboard on the street course we made for burning man. By the end of the week, we were hooking the board over the coping, pausing at the top to socialize, then rolling back in while holding a drink. Now we want to try to do, after my success on the ‘hoverboard railslide’, something we would attest to being ‘hoverboard rock’n’roll’ on the half pipe.
Here’s the half-pipe attempt at Braille in San Leandra.
