Commuting

Holy shit that thing is loud. "Whistle" mode seems to work best in NYC, since it pierces thru the normal city soundscape. I have concerns about the bands to hold it to the bars, so I will keep an eye on that. I may use this when out on road rides too...
Hey is this legal? Deafening sound + blinding light, me likey

Again... not sure which setting I was in but its not stupid loud.
Its kinda like you left the radio on too loud in your car last night and you get a bit of a jolt in the morning when you turned on your car.

It’s just that kind of closed-mindedness that....

Jk- yes they are-
There are numerous signs along the greenway stating just that.
I can only presume the differentiation is between pedal assist (Citibike) and throttle bikes that the delivery guys use.
And it all makes no difference to me, because as of April, those things are dead to me.

i think you have it right...i’ve seen so many delivery guys getting ticketed on the greenway on those throttle bikes...the citibike ebikes are super fast and fun, but verboten if you wanna compete in BIYF! at least i think they are?!
