    I didn't, but my son and I got to ride our eBikes 25 miles. We saw one new Christmas bicycle, and a skateboard, that's it. Even though it was sunny and 65 degrees there weren't any kids out playing with their new toys.

    When I was young, the neighborhood would have been filled with kids outside playing with their new Christmas bicycles, skates, footballs, walkey talkies, toy army rifles, .049 planes.

    I guess they're all inside playing computer games.

    I rode around the neighborhood with my lad on the back seat, and we saw one family outside with three or four kids playing on bikes. A whole lot of people walking dogs Too

    I don't know how many people IVe snuck up on in the dark parking lot riding home while they're trying to throw out their trash .I'll be about 7 feet away when they spin around, terrified looks on their faces wondering what the heck's passing by them. I really dig how quiet the brushless motor is :D

    I got a new free wheel for my e-bike for more speed. I have a wiring problems now, so I haven't been able to test it.

    i didnt get a new bike but i got a dual disc front wheel. and i rode my first fat bike. kinda ridiculous how big those tires are but they are super springy and the bike itself wasnt any heavier than a normal mountain bike
