Check out this video that a customer of ours in Montreal put together and shared with us today! He does a very detailed walk-through of his commuter bike setup, a Surley Disc Trucker coupled with a Companion Bike Seat. He provides some great feedback for us to consider for subsequent design improvements to our bike seats. And he also walks through the installation process required for his Surley Trucker, which needed the quick-release rear axle to be swapped for a solid axle so the pegs could be installed properly. Thanks BikeMontreal, this is awesome!
We went to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival again this year for weekend 2, and this time we brought two bike seats with us to the show. Traffic getting in and out of the parking lot every night is incredibly difficult, and even with the ease of Uber being readily available, you still end up sitting in a long line of cars. Bikes end up being the perfect way to get to and from the show, that is if you're not camping of course. And there are plenty of places to safely lock your bike against a fence close to the entrance as well. In over three years of riding bikes to Coachella, we've never had a bike stolen.
The weekend was a complete success ... three full days of great music, great weather, great people, and great fun. It even rained a tiny bit on Friday, keeping everything cool, the perfect start to the weekend. Complete sensory overload, with massive art structures all around the grounds, and over 6 stages music playing for at least 12 hours every day (if you get there early enough in the day). There was even a giant spaceman cruising around!
Remember, ALWAYS wear a HELMET!
