Miranda Miller’s Winter Musings

While everyone knows Miranda Miller is an ace on the bike, did you know she’s also very creative? Both of her parents have worked in the arts and she likes to dabble with drawing and creating in her spare time. Miranda caught wind of our first theme for our ambassadors and wanted to contribute her own submission to Winter.

She created a series of drawings and Haikus that describe what winter means to her. Click here to see the below graphic in full size.

The Most Natural Feeling eBike

Caleb Smith | KONA COG

Matt Jacobs of Bicycling Magazine has been spending a bit of time aboard the Remote CTRL recently. His simple synopsis? “The Remote CTRL is the most natural feeling eBike we’ve ever tried.” Matt used the Remote CTRL for all kinds of rides and noted that he was able to ride every kind of terrain he’d normally ride, only longer and faster, sticking with our claim that eBikes can make biking more fun for every type of rider. Matt agrees, saying, “It isn’t just for riders who may need a little assistance; the E-MTB mode creates an organic riding experience that allows you to take the skills you already have and ride faster and harder. I stayed out on the trail for much longer than I usually do on a traditional mountain bike, and still came home feeling like I exerted myself.

His review is extremely thorough and goes through both geometry and spec and how both things affect ride quality. To see the full review, be sure to head on over to Bicycling.com.
