Cool people doing cool shit on cool stuff. I approve of everything in this public service message. Never met Austin (: @austinhorse) but he seems like a pretty rad dude and his nonprofit mobile bike service, Bike Yard, is definitely rad. If you’ve been playing along, you’ll know I’m a fan of Xtracycle and Edgerunners. I’m also a fan of Bosch eBike systems on cargo bikes. But not on mountain bikes, because soulless heathens.
Get to know Austin Horse, founder of nonprofit mobile bike service Bike Yard (www.wayofthebike.com), and follow him around New York City as he uses his Bosch-powered Xtracycle Edgerunner 10E to help racers prepare their bikes for the 2015 Red Bull Mini Drome in Brooklyn, NY. Austin comfortably navigates the NYC streets with his 200 pound trailer in tow thanks to Bosch’s pedal-assist eBike technology. This helps Bike Yard with the long haul trips in order to be part of the NYC cycling community events.
