This is actually a 2018 Smart S...........it has theft deterrent features that disable the bike and it can be tracked to find it. It also does morse code SOS blinking of the lights. It makes weird noises when alarm activated. Has owner recognition capabilities and some lock of it's own in that frame bag. It is not the newer electrified models that have motor in front hub so that is also a plus to me....2 days left and up'd my max bid due to this interesting new data.......

I bought one of these a while back and love it. It bounces between canine companion Chip's two trailers has thus far worked out wonderfully. This one is for my mostly non-cyclist brother who is looking at using his bike to beat traffic when it gets a bit warmer.

Found this in the used bin. Long ago, the Alien was my first cycling multi-tool. That particular tool still rides in Mrs. Newleaf's pack. This one will ride on the 'bent.

I thought I was done spending money. Especially on the Priority. I was done. There was nothing else to do to or with it. Yet here I am again, waiting on ups.

That damn Vanmoof auction really heated up right at the end didn’t it?

yeah, I let it go, relieved to have lost it....went as far as 1325.00 so I lost it by $5. Didn't really want it that bad to drop 1400 on it even though it was much more than that new. Another dining room ornament not really necessary. First time I have employed the n+0 concept.....I know I should feel good about it but I don't........23 is a prime number. Perusing frames and such. Don't have a 27.5 bike. We'll see what happens.

You know what the real WIN part is?.......when I warned the wife what I almost had done, all she non-chalantly said was just lemme know and I'll move the money over.

That sounds like an open invitation to find the next bike! I would love to have another bike but it’d be something pretty and impractical and expensive.

I could not see myself on that thing but it looks super fun. I could see an e-bike coming home with me some day. I like the rad adventure (?) ones.

“Seeing” a rhino dildo and “USING” a rhino dildo are two very different things. Haha!

Well this is the END of my obsession with bike bags. No more! I ah e always wanted a Sacksville bag from Rivindell Bike Works. This thing is about as close to perfection as I’ll get. Big enough for small store runs and big enough for summer weekend trips.
