“E-bikes feel like being in a video game with a cheat code.”
— LeGrand crewse
In this episode, LeGrand joins Derek D for a lively conversation about a quickly-growing segment of the electric vehicle world. They discuss how LeGrand’s interest in electric mobility came from his own frustrations with his commute, how SUPER73 is pioneering bringing e-bikes to a younger crowd, and what it takes to interest new riders into powered two-wheeled experiences. Plus, the conversation covers how e-bike riders have been able to fly under the radar in many ways, why LeGrand is concerned about potential regulation, and more.
