Coming from bike friendly California to less bike friendly North Carolina, I knew I needed to change my ride, to adapt. With the help of everyone at Cycle 9 (Morgan, Elise, Kristin), I converted my bike to the ultimate commuter-mobile (for me). It now has bulletproof tires, an electric motor that increases my average speed to ~20mph when I pedal and motor, “ground effects” (Down Low Glow), and the best rear blinky I’ve ever had.
They’ve also helped me in times of technical trouble. For example, my 10 year old back wheel kept going out of true. They helped me come to grips with the fact that it was on the way out (confirmed when they sent me over to a neighboring shop for a second opinion), and hooked me up with a new wheel for very little money. When my battery seemed like it had diminished capacity, they checked it out, worked with the vendor, and had me a brand new battery to replace my almost year old battery.
