Live Electric Bike Demo from Trestles Beach



Dustin Gyger:

Yeah, there you go. You can shoot us, but-


Alana:

The background is-


Nate:

We're live, we're live.


Alana:

Is anyone there?


Dustin Gyger:

Let us know when we have viewers.


Alana:

That's cute.


Nate:

No viewers.


Alana:

No viewers?


Dustin Gyger:

Kind of curious where that path goes?


Alana:

That way? Oh, down there?


Nate:

No one's here.


Dustin Gyger:

No one?


Alana:

Which way is the-


Nate:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

Shoot.


Alana:

Oh my goodness.


Nate:

Three.


Alana:

Three people. Hi.


Nate:

Four.


Dustin Gyger:

Four. Hey, welcome. We're going to just wait a second before we reveal our mystery live location today. If you can guess where we are based on these bushes, put your guess in the comment.


Nate:

Amy's here.


Alana:

Amyster?


Dustin Gyger:

Hey Amy.


Nate:

Sarah says, hello.


Alana:

Hi.


Dustin Gyger:

Comment where you think we are at our mystery location. We'll start to give you more clues as we go. But right now, just focus on this natural habitat bush.


Nate:

Gloria says hello.


Dustin Gyger:

Hello Gloria.


Nate:

You'll never guess. Olympic Village.


Alana:

Olympic Village?


Nate:

Ashley say hi.


Nate:

Laura says hello.


Alana:

Hi guys.


Dustin Gyger:

Maybe comment where you're from too. It's cool to hear where people are from.


Nate:

Kevin says, "Hey, from Queens, New York."


Alana:

Oh cool.


Dustin Gyger:

Queens, New York. Where my dad was born.


Nate:

Hello from Northern California, Selena.


Alana:

Salinas?


Nate:

Selena.


Alana:

Oh.


Dustin Gyger:

Selena. Anyone have a guess where we are mystery location? Put your guess in the comments.


Nate:

There we go.


Alana:

Still here.


Dustin Gyger:

How many we got live?


Nate:

Wyoming.


Dustin Gyger:

Wyoming. Can anyone guess where we are? Mystery location?


Nate:

Hi from Minnesota.


Dustin Gyger:

Minnesota. I'm from Chicago. Good to see the Midwest represented. Any guesses where we are?


Nate:

"New York State?" Says Renee.


Dustin Gyger:

All right.


Alana:

No. Oh.


Dustin Gyger:

Oh. Are we in New York State?


Nate:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

No. Nope. We're in California. We'll tell you that much. Although that would be pretty fun to fly to a different location. Really take this mystery spot to a new level.


Nate:

20 people.


Dustin Gyger:

Time?


Nate:

"Mauro Canyon," says Amy.


Dustin Gyger:

No. We can give a clue. We're somewhere on the coastline. We'll tell you that much. Somewhere on the coastline, within striking distance of the beach we're going to take you down to.


Dustin Gyger:

Maybe show the path, see if that can give anyone a hint.


Alana:

I had never heard of this beach before you suggested it.


Nate:

25 people.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. What time is it?


Alana:

12:03.


Nate:

Kevin James says, "Tori Pines?"


Dustin Gyger:

No, but that's a good guess.


Dustin Gyger:

Should we reveal the mystery location or should we...?


Nate:

Yeah. Let's do it.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay, so I'll give some hints. Let's see if anyone can guess.


Nate:

The suspense is killing Amy.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. We're at probably one of the most famous surf locations in all of Southern California. Does anyone have any guesses based on that clue? Anyone?


Alana:

Bueller.


Dustin Gyger:

Nothing?


Nate:

Nothing.


Dustin Gyger:

Another hint? Show them the path. Does this look familiar to anyone?


Nate:

"Malibu," says Selena.


Dustin Gyger:

Oh, good guess, but no.


Nate:

New Port Beach?


Dustin Gyger:

Nope. Nope. Here, I'll take you over here.


Nate:

Low Edge.


Dustin Gyger:

Oh, that's a good guess, but no.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. So we are at a place called Trestles, San Onofre in San Clemente. It's one of the most Southern points of all San Clemente. And Trestles is huge, huge surf spot. You can see going up and down these paths all to the beach, just surfers all day going down there.


Dustin Gyger:

It's kind of crazy. They've got the different locations of the ocean, and then all the different types of waves, the best board you can use and the skill levels, which is crazy. I don't think I've seen this at a beach before.


Dustin Gyger:

So this is actually only about 10 minutes away from our new corporate headquarters in San Clemente. So, cool spot. We'll take you guys on a little test drive down there, but here are the e-bikes we brought today. We've got our, Every Journey Women's, 500 watt periwinkle blue. And then our Round The Block Women's pine melon. And then we've got the Every Journey Fat Tire.


Dustin Gyger:

Now I brought the women's because we didn't have a men's Fat Tire built, but for the purpose of the demo, it's all the same, the men's just has a little bit higher too. But all 500 watts, all super fun. And actually here, the e-bikes are really super beneficial because there's no great place to park here. So you got to park all the way up there and cruise down. This guy's walking somewhere. We don't know where. But you got the five freeways right here. And then actually somewhere down there, we'll find it, the railroad down to San Diego runs and you actually pass under that to go to the beach. So it's pretty cool.


Dustin Gyger:

So do we want to ride or do we want to talk about the bikes?


Alana:

Are there any questions or should we go for a ride?


Nate:

Such beautiful bikes.


Alana:

Yeah. Let's ride.


Dustin Gyger:

Ride?


Alana:

And then we can stop and answer questions.


Dustin Gyger:

We can talk while we ride too.


Alana:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

Where do we want to go first? Down there? Just a small caveat. I'm not a surfer. Nate and Alana have never been here. I've been here once, but I don't frequent this place, so you guys are going on this adventure with us for the first time.


Nate:

The video keeps interrupting.


Dustin Gyger:

Ahh shoot.


Nate:

Love the Fat Tires.


Dustin Gyger:

So yeah, the Fat Tire is super good for stuff like this. I mean, this is paved, but it's a little bit bumpy, so having the fatter tire's kind of nice. And again, these are all 500 Watts. So top speed if you're doing pedal assist is about 28. If you're just doing the throttle, about 20.


Nate:

Kara said, "Getting interrupted."


Dustin Gyger:

Kara said that?


Nate:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah. It's going to be spotty. Is your service still strong?


Nate:

It was strong when we got here.


Dustin Gyger:

This might not even work, dude. Mystery location may not be a good location.


Nate:

Does the Fat Tire work on the sand/beach?


Dustin Gyger:

It can. Yes. Except for super, super fluffy sand. You need it to be a little bit hard packed.


Alana:

Oncoming biker.


Dustin Gyger:

What's that?


Nate:

I'm getting poor quality.


Dustin Gyger:

Uh oh.


Alana:

Watch out for this guy.


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah. I got a bad feeling. Are we...?


Nate:

30 seconds [inaudible 00:08:09].


Dustin Gyger:

I don't even think I have any service. Are we still live?


Nate:

Still live.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. Just try to bear with us where we want to take you guys on the journey with us.


Nate:

Bad feed.


Dustin Gyger:

Huh? What?


Nate:

Bad feed.


Dustin Gyger:

That's what that says?


Nate:

That what someone said.


Dustin Gyger:

Oh. Shit. Well, should we keep pressing onward?


Nate:

Let's just see.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. All right.


Dustin Gyger:

So you guys can see, I'm just using the throttle right now. I'm cruising at about 10 miles an hour.


Nate:

Can you use a second battery if the first one gets depleted?


Dustin Gyger:

We can indeed. And Nate's carrying an extra battery in his backpack just in case for that reason. So yeah, you can. You guys can buy extra batteries from us and travel with them, which is a great idea.


Dustin Gyger:

All right, cool. We're getting there now.


Nate:

Anna likes Alana's bike too.


Alana:

The Round The Block.


Dustin Gyger:

And Nate's on the Perry Winkle, which is...


Alana:

My favorite bike.


Dustin Gyger:

We should swap bikes so they can see.


Alana:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

And the Fat Tire bikes are in stock right now. The other colors like this one, actually we're getting those back in about a month or two.


Dustin Gyger:

All right, cool. Actually, we could try to even do a little sand riding demo. Should we?


Nate:

Yeah.


Nate:

Do any bikes come in 24?


Dustin Gyger:

We've got a 24 inch Every Journey. Are we talking about electric bikes?


Nate:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

We've got one coming actually in the next two months, 24 inch Every Journey.


Dustin Gyger:

Can we go up here? Let's see.


Dustin Gyger:

Actually, that guy just took his-


Alana:

Yeah, he went for it.


Dustin Gyger:

We should follow him.


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah. So this... Wow.


Nate:

How difficult is it to replace a battery with a freshly charged one?


Dustin Gyger:

Super easy. Here, let's show them.


Alana:

Okay.


Dustin Gyger:

Do you have the keys for yours?


Alana:

Nate has the keys in his backpack. I'll grab them.


Alana:

So the slot for the key is right here. Let me turn this off. The on-off switch is back here. Turn it off, turn the key and then slide the battery out. And then same to put it back in. Slides in, turn the key, and it's locked in.


Dustin Gyger:

How many people live with us?


Nate:

39.


Dustin Gyger:

39. If you just joined us, mystery location this week, we're at Trestles Beach, San Clemente. We're right by the railway. This is a really well-known famous surf spot here in Southern California.


Dustin Gyger:

Let me try to tackle this thing. I don't know if you want to just film me here and I'll show them how this thing does on the sand.


Nate:

All right.


Dustin Gyger:

And I just want to preface this by saying I've actually never personally done this. So it's a good thing I'm wearing a helmet, to say the least. So let me turn up my pedal assist. So, if you can shoot this, Nate, I got my pedal assist level here. I'm going to take it up to five because we're going to go through some sand obviously, and then uphill. And let's see how this performs.


Alana:

Watch out, someone's coming out.


Nate:

[inaudible 00:12:22]. How heavy are these bikes, Alana?


Alana:

Oh, do you know? They're pretty heavy.


Nate:

[inaudible 00:12:29]?


Alana:

Yeah. I think the Around The Block is heavier than the Every Journey. Every Journey is lighter.


Dustin Gyger:

Easy peasy.


Nate:

Should we follow him?


Alana:

Okay.


Nate:

I don't know if my audio is working.


Alana:

Wait. I didn't turn my battery back on.


Nate:

Huh?


Alana:

I forgot to turn my battery on.


Nate:

Sorry?


Alana:

Okay. You first?


Nate:

Do you think we can ride on this sand?


Alana:

I don't know. I guess we'll see. Do I go right, right away?


Nate:

Yeah, he's going for it.


Alana:

Okay.


Dustin Gyger:

She's going for it.


Dustin Gyger:

There was a little bit of rocks there, which make it interesting. Be careful Nate.


Alana:

Maybe you stay down there. He's biking with one hand.


Dustin Gyger:

But yeah. I mean you can see... show them the terrain. It's definitely sandy and rocky, but the Fat Tire handled it nicely.


Nate:

We're back.


Dustin Gyger:

We're back.


Alana:

Whoa. It's scary.


Dustin Gyger:

This is cool.


Alana:

Yeah, this is really cool.


Dustin Gyger:

I've never been up here. I don't know if they can still hear me or what? We've got some manmade huts and I don't see any surfers though. Where are all the surfers?


Alana:

They're resting. That was a bumpy ride.


Dustin Gyger:

Are we connected?


Nate:

We're connected, yeah. Can you hold it?


Alana:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. So any questions about the e-bikes? You can just see, we took it on the sand. This is a hard-packed gravel sand, actually Alana's bike did pretty good too. Don't you think?


Alana:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

Other than the rocks. The rocks proved to be a little bit challenging.


Alana:

Yeah, the rocks made it a shaky ride, but otherwise it was cool.


Dustin Gyger:

I think what we could do too, is I could do a little demo. Maybe Nate could film us up here as we try to just ride through the actual beach. Be kind of fun.


Alana:

On the sand?


Dustin Gyger:

Huh?


Alana:

On the sand?


Dustin Gyger:

Sorry, what?


Alana:

On the sand?


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah. That's what I was thinking.


Alana:

Cool. Here comes Nate. Oh no.


Dustin Gyger:

So any questions? Comments?


Nate:

Did you show them this thing down here?


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah. Isn't it cool?


Alana:

I think the video is still spotty.


Nate:

46 people.


Dustin Gyger:

Oh, and growing.


Dustin Gyger:

So, hey guys, we're here at Trestle, San Clemente. We apologize for the poor quality. We were just trying to take you guys on location and we're deep in the cut right now. We're pretty close to the old Southern most point of Orange County and camp Pendleton. So cell phone service can get a little spotty as we go.


Dustin Gyger:

But we've got the e-bikes with us. Any questions? Thoughts? All of our bikes are 500 watt. We've got the throttle that you can use, so you don't have to peddle at all. You can do full throttle or you can do pedal assist.


Nate:

Is it a front or rear drive?


Dustin Gyger:

These are rear drive motors. So the motors in the back, batteries are mounted here, easily removable. Alana just demonstrated, if you were with us.


Nate:

What's [inaudible 00:17:11] for off roaders?


Dustin Gyger:

It's kind of like asking about SUV's. SUV's are built to go off road, but a lot of people like them for normal driving. I would say the same thing with the Fat Tire. Some people like the Fat Tire just for normal pavement because of how soft the ride is. And then also with the wider tire, it provides a lot more stability just in general. There's more rubber contacting the roads. So if you're concerned with stability or you like a really soft, cushy ride, these big tires are going to give you that.


Dustin Gyger:

Alana rode it on the streets a lot and she said she liked it.


Alana:

Yeah, I love it.


Dustin Gyger:

The downside of the Fat Tire is because bigger tires, more rubber on the road, you are going to drain the battery a little faster because the motor's got to work harder to get this baby moving versus the other ones. But yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

It looks like we have a old basketball hoop or flagpole.


Alana:

Cool place.


Dustin Gyger:

Should we stay or keep moving?


Nate:

Does it matter?


Dustin Gyger:

Well, I was thinking maybe you could stay up here and you could film Alana and I try to ride on the sand?


Nate:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

Should we do it?


Nate:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

What do you guys think at home?


Nate:

Do you want to see some sand riding?


Alana:

Can I ride the Fat Tire?


Dustin Gyger:

Well, yours may not work.


Alana:

I know, that's why I'm wondering.


Nate:

Let's do a sand test.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. Sand test. Here we go.


Alana:

I'll follow you.


Dustin Gyger:

I would make sure to pedal.


Alana:

I have just been using the throttle and keeping my feet down in case I need to catch myself.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. Okay. So I'm going to probably come out and make a left.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. So Fat Tire, full sand beach. We're going to finally put this question to bed here, if it works or not. Let's do this.


Nate:

Show me the sand.


Dustin Gyger:

Show me the sand. Just be careful where these rocks are.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. Should I start here?


Nate:

Sound like a pig.


Dustin Gyger:

Here we go. Oh, shoot. My motor's not on. Wait, that doesn't count. I didn't have the power on. Okay, here we go. Okay. Now we're back. Hold on. Okay.


Dustin Gyger:

It's getting a little squirrely. So we've got some deep sand here. Very deep sand.


Alana:

I'm going to stay put.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay, here we go.


Dustin Gyger:

That's proving challenging. Let's see. Okay. Yeah. Here we go. Now we're off and running.


Dustin Gyger:

I'll be honest. It's squirrely. This is really deep sand. Really deep. Okay. This'll be doable. Here we go.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. Are we ready?


Dustin Gyger:

Wow. There's lobsters and crab down here.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. Actually, this is good. My battery wasn't fully charged, so actually the battery needs to be swapped before we do this.


Nate:

Oh yeah. I have it.


Dustin Gyger:

Which I think that would have probably played in a little bit, but honestly, deep, deep sand is just hard. That was an upper body workout.


Dustin Gyger:

So I got my keys here. Let's go ahead and put in the full battery. That's going to give me a lot more power. All right. Now you guys are witnessing honestly, first time ever with the Fat Tire in sand. Riding in thick, thick sand is just challenging, especially when there's a lot of people walking on it because it just creates so many potholes.


Dustin Gyger:

That's it. That's all you do to get the battery on.


Nate:

They appreciate the fanta.


Dustin Gyger:

Well, now we know. All right. Let's see. Put these back on here.


Nate:

[inaudible 00:23:49].


Dustin Gyger:

I don't know if you guys could see, my tire was, as the potholes were coming, it was like a pretty big adventure.


Dustin Gyger:

So we've got a switch back here on the battery. Got to make sure that's turned on and then flip that baby on.


Dustin Gyger:

I don't want to get too confident here because I was feeling way more confident about the thick sand, but I think we'll be able to take this no problem. Let me lower the seat a little bit too.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. Okay. Much better. Okay. Now how many people watching at home?


Nate:

48.


Dustin Gyger:

48. 48 of you are going to witness the first time ever what this baby's going to do on the hard packed sand.


Dustin Gyger:

Oh wait, wait, let me turn my pedal assist up. All right.


Dustin Gyger:

I'm probably going to hit a little bit of water here. We popped a wheelie. And we're off. Go.


Dustin Gyger:

That's more like it.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. I'll turn around.


Dustin Gyger:

And I'm even riding at an incline here, which is a little bit scary because we can wipe out like that. If this was flat ground we'd be taking this no problem. We did it.


Dustin Gyger:

I was saying it's a little bit challenging being at a 30 degree angle too, but this would be no problem on flat ground. It's fun actually. It looks like it flattens out up there too. Should we check it out?


Nate:

Awesome bike.


Dustin Gyger:

I don't know if you can get this too, we've got wildlife here. It looks like lobster or crawfish.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. Let me get this baby back up here. Yeah. I don't think our normal bikes could not take this on by any means.


Dustin Gyger:

Let's try this again now that I have more power in the battery.


Dustin Gyger:

There we go.


Dustin Gyger:

Still not easy, but...


Dustin Gyger:

Should I make my way back to Alana?


Nate:

You've got to give the people what they want.


Dustin Gyger:

Huh? What'd they say?


Dustin Gyger:

All right, well let's meet back up with her and then let's cruise the path a little farther.


Dustin Gyger:

Can we shoot the sand though? Just to show people what I'm working with here. For anyone that asks can you get a workout on an e-bike? Absolutely. Take your e-bike in the sand. Even with full motor power, I'm still wrestling the handlebars.


Dustin Gyger:

Here we go, here we go. There we go.


Dustin Gyger:

Chalk this up to best bike demo ever.


Dustin Gyger:

That was adventurous.


Alana:

I tried. I got about two feet.


Dustin Gyger:

I don't know if Nate can hear us now or what? Well, if you can hear us, I'm winded. I'll be honest. Alana just said she could only get two feet, but I think what we'll do now is maybe just cruise the path. That's crazy.


Alana:

[inaudible 00:30:06]?


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah.


Alana:

Nate's getting a work out today.


Dustin Gyger:

You got to get your bike down, right? How are we going to do that?


Alana:

I can come back for it.


Dustin Gyger:

Any questions? Comments?


Nate:

60 people now.


Dustin Gyger:

60. Whoever just joined, mystery location, Trestles, California, famous surf spot here, just out just by our office in San Clemente. I just did a sand test on the Fat Tire. Thick bumpy sand is a no-go. Hard packed by the water, it's doable. Actually easily doable. Just don't do it at a 30 degree/40 degree angle. So yeah, anything you guys want to see on the e-bikes, otherwise we'll take you on a little bit more of a ride. We'll see where this can take us.


Dustin Gyger:

Do you want me to hold that?


Nate:

Okay. I can get on the Fat Tire.


Alana:

You can even clip it on.


Dustin Gyger:

I think what I'll do is turn the motor off to do this and then we'll just meet Nate at the bottom.


Alana:

Let's get the [inaudible 00:31:28].


Dustin Gyger:

Probably got a little bit of sand in the breaks. Okay. Wow. Yeah. That's the one downside of going to the beach, getting debris and things in your brake pads, your rotors, things like that. So we'll clean that out.


Dustin Gyger:

No sound? Can you hear me?


Nate:

Is it normal the seat to be squeaky when riding?


Dustin Gyger:

Not normal to be squeaking. Usually the seats can be adjusted by tightening a screw at the bottom of springs or a little WD40 will also take care of that.


Dustin Gyger:

I don't know if you guys can hear me. Oh, you hear us perfectly. All right.


Dustin Gyger:

Here comes a train.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. Stick with us. What's wrong?


Alana:

It's so bumpy.


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah. Nate's got his phone in my hands. The life of his phone depends on me.


Dustin Gyger:

We can also go straight here it looks like. All right.


Nate:

All right.


Dustin Gyger:

You ready?


Nate:

Ready.


Dustin Gyger:

Should we try to go straight?


Alana:

Can we?


Nate:

We'll go when you can.


Alana:

Yeah, I don't know if I can.


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. Let's get out of here.


Alana:

Do you see the road going up?


Dustin Gyger:

Okay. Let's try it.


Dustin Gyger:

Here we go. Full throttle.


Dustin Gyger:

Connection. Should we try this?


Dustin Gyger:

All right. Let's give this a try.


Dustin Gyger:

Thanks for coming out to watch us at our mystery spot. Trestles, California, just in San Clemente, big surf spot. We're just putting these to the test. So this is loose gravel, hard packed. All the bikes can handle this easily. Fat Tire can obviously take this on no problem.


Dustin Gyger:

I don't know what's going on around this corner. So this is like a little runoff to the ocean.


Nate:

Do you want to do the giveaway?


Dustin Gyger:

Should we make a lap and then we'll go back to where we started to do it, maybe?


Nate:

Okay.


Dustin Gyger:

All right, let's do that.


Nate:

Tell them how long until the-


Dustin Gyger:

How long till the giveaway?


Nate:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

What time is it?


Alana:

It's 12:35.


Dustin Gyger:

10 minutes?


Alana:

10 minutes to enter. Don't double enter. It won't count. We're deleting all double entries.


Dustin Gyger:

What's the giveaway for today?


Alana:

Around The Block.


Dustin Gyger:

Normal bike?


Alana:

Normal, yes. Manual.


Dustin Gyger:

Manual. What's it, not manual?


Alana:

Six, ten.


Dustin Gyger:

Look at that right there.


Alana:

Nate is my idol.


Nate:

[inaudible 00:35:50].


Dustin Gyger:

Yes, we do. They are on our website. I don't know off the top of my head, the cost. I want to say around $200-ish for the battery. And, if you're going to do a lot of riding and you want to go on seriously long adventures, or you got a lot of hills, I'd advise against carrying a secondary battery. Just depending if you want to go more than 30 miles and you got a lot of hills, having an extra battery will be a really good thing. Also, depending on if you use the throttle or the pedal assist, you're going to use more battery power obviously using the throttle.


Dustin Gyger:

Dead zone.


Dustin Gyger:

Should we offer these people electric bikes?


Dustin Gyger:

Are we back live? A little demo? No problem.


Dustin Gyger:

I'd like to just make a shout out to Nate here who is multitasking? Don't try this at home. Camera man and balancing an e-bike. Always wear your helmets kids and adults.


Dustin Gyger:

Just have to make a pass here.


Dustin Gyger:

So one thing too, is when you do the pedal assist, and you stop pedaling, the motor cuts immediately. So it's a little bit getting used to because when you stop, you really kill a lot of the momentum that the motor gave you.


Dustin Gyger:

We want to just do a jaunt down this trail then we'll come back to the sign for the giveaway?


Alana:

Okay.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. Stick with us four more minutes. We'll see where this goes and then we'll come back.


Dustin Gyger:

Should I see how fast I can go? I'm going to put in pedal assist five and now I'm shifting to seven speeds. Let's see.


Dustin Gyger:

22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 27.3.


Dustin Gyger:

27.3.


Alana:

What?


Dustin Gyger:

27.3. Let's try that again full throttle. Here we go.


Dustin Gyger:

Throttle only. 16, 17, 18, 19, 20.7, 21, 22, 22.5, 22.9. Top speed, full throttle.


Dustin Gyger:

We got a little downhill here it looks like, so I picked up some speed. Woo. Tired from that pedal assist. But that's another point to the, "Can you get exercise on an electric bike?" I mean, when you're doing the pedal assist, it's fun to push yourself, to see how fast you can get going.


Dustin Gyger:

Almost 28 miles an hour is pretty quick. You want to do a speed test?


Alana:

I hit 21 full throttle. And no pedals.


Dustin Gyger:

Cool.


Alana:

[inaudible 00:40:40].


Dustin Gyger:

Fair enough. All right. Should we go back to the sign? Do the giveaway?


Alana:

All right.


Nate:

There's quite a bit of a [inaudible 00:40:48].


Dustin Gyger:

This is a good little racer track here. The question is, is what was this? This looks like it was a freeway entrance at some point.


Alana:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

I feel like it was. This was like an on-ramp.


Nate:

Check your teeth for bugs.


Dustin Gyger:

What?


Nate:

Now check your teeth for bugs.


Dustin Gyger:

True. I made sure to keep my mouth closed.


Dustin Gyger:

It's such an interesting area down here. It's so far away from most of Orange County. But if you ever want to see a ton of surfers, come down to Trestles. Not only that, I feel like this is the electric bike capital of the world right here. Everybody's got electric bikes so they can easily ride down to the surf.


Dustin Gyger:

I don't know if you guys saw, we had to park on the other side of the five and there's really no parking lot to access this beach down here. So you got to either walk it, ride a bike or take an e-bike. So the e-bike made it a lot more accessible for people or a lot more easily accessible.


Dustin Gyger:

I like our race track here. It'd be cool to come back here and make a video and show the speedometer and put a little fake stoplight.


Nate:

6,5,4,3,2,1. [crosstalk 00:42:25].


Dustin Gyger:

I got sidetracked by the photo op. All right, Alana, if you want to handle the giveaway now. We'll do the giveaway. Then I was going to say, after we do the giveaway, if you guys want to stick with us on the live, I want to just check out wherever this path takes us. Maybe just do another five minutes.


Dustin Gyger:

Any questions, comments while we're waiting?


Nate:

They want to know about the Pedal Us app.


Dustin Gyger:

Oh yeah. So download the 630 app, iOS, Android, and be a part of the community. It's super cool. We got the feed. You can post your rides.


Nate:

See how fast you go.


Dustin Gyger:

You can track speed, track all your rides, distance, calories. And then we're about to add some new features coming up here soon like commenting just to create more engagement. So yeah, it's a lot of fun. Actually, I should have tracked the ride. Now that I remember.


Alana:

I was thinking that too but you were stopping.


Alana:

Okay, I'm turning off responses, so get your name in now. We have 10 seconds.


Nate:

Tell them about the YouTube [inaudible 00:44:24].


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah.


Alana:

Right now, if you're not subscribed to our YouTube channel, check it out because I embark on a challenge to lose 10 pounds by only incorporating biking.


Dustin Gyger:

E-biking.


Alana:

E-biking specifically. So you can watch me lose weight.


Nate:

Episode one.


Alana:

Episode one is live. We just posted it yesterday. Give me your feedback. Let me know what you see. It's a little embarrassing for me to put myself out there like that, so I hope you guys like it.


Alana:

Okay. Turning off responses. Let's see. We have 77 people. Let me just make sure to delete any duplicates.


Nate:

In the meantime, what phone holder do you have?


Dustin Gyger:

This is actually the 630 phone holder. So we just came out with this. The reason I like it, is it's got super big opening space. So I've got the Note 10 Plus, and I got a case on-


Nate:

I've got an iPhone.


Alana:

I got a Note 10 for myself-


Dustin Gyger:

And I have a case on it. So it even fits in here. I noticed some of the other ones, like for the Note with the bigger screen and the case, they don't fit as well. So yeah, this works good. And you could see, I was going 28 miles an hour and it held up just fine and through the sand terrain.


Nate:

Tell them about the YouTube channel again.


Alana:

Okay. So before I reveal the winner, if you haven't checked out our YouTube channel, we have a new series in which I challenge myself to lose 10 pounds by only incorporating e-biking into my routine. So before starting, I wasn't working out, not really focused on diet or nutrition at all, but over six weeks, I add biking to my routine by biking around three times a week, sometimes more to see if I can get in shape. Check it out.


Nate:

Episode one.


Alana:

Episode one was live yesterday. Let me know what you think. I hope you guys like it because it was a little embarrassing to put myself out there like that. And I know some people were saying that I didn't reveal my starting weight in episode one. So we have the footage and we will post it in episode two. And I can't believe I'm going to let everyone know how much I weigh.


Alana:

Okay, so can you see this?


Nate:

A little bit.


Alana:

Here's the wheel, I'm about to tap it. We had 77 entries. Here's everyone's names.


Nate:

Okay.


Alana:

The winner is...


Nate:

Lindsey.


Alana:

Congrats, Lindsey Oliva. You're the winner. So we have your contact information. It's on the form. We will send you an email so you can pick out your bike and we'll get that shipped to you. Thanks for watching. We're going to go for a ride now?


Dustin Gyger:

Yeah. If you guys want to stick around, I want to see where this path goes. So ride with us. If not, thanks for tuning in. Don't forget, download the app, join the Pedalers community on Facebook. If you're interested in a 630, or if you even have one, join the Facebook Pedalers group. Tons of good posts in there. Lots of questions answered about the e-bikes. You can also see videos of people riding their bike, photos, and the apps really cool too, to see how everyone's riding their bike, because you can see on the posts on the feed, what bike they're riding. If you guys selected, if you do have the app, choose your bike, name your bike, it makes it all more fun.


Dustin Gyger:

And then of course, check out Alana in her first starring role in her weight loss journey. And we're going to put some myths to bed about e-bikes. How people saying, "Oh, it does all the work." But it's true like anything, it's how you use it, how much work you let it do. So we're going to prove that Alana can get into the shape she wants by using an electric bike.


Dustin Gyger:

So follow the series. Episode one out now, episode two dropping...?


Alana:

Next week.


Dustin Gyger:

Next week on...?


Alana:

Thursday.


Dustin Gyger:

Every Thursday, new episodes. For how many episodes?


Alana:

Five.


Dustin Gyger:

Five total episodes. So check it out.


Dustin Gyger:

All right, let's do this. Go for a quick little ride. Stay with us if you want. If not, thanks for coming.


Dustin Gyger:

Don't forget, your journey, your experience. Enjoy the ride.


Alana:

Oh, this is steep.


Alana:

I wish you guys could see Nate right now. Scuttling down the hill.


Dustin Gyger:

Follow me on the feed, on Gygs81.


Dustin Gyger:

Who are you?


Alana:

Alana.


Dustin Gyger:

Just Alana. All right, here we go.


Dustin Gyger:

All right. Ready for this?


Alana:

Oh, wow. I'm going in pedal assist, level two for this.


Alana:

Ramping it up to level three. Oh, four.


Dustin Gyger:

We made it. That's a pretty serious hill.


Alana:

Yeah.


Dustin Gyger:

I'd like to point out, Nate is doing the hill with the e-bike, holding the camera.


Alana:

There's a mountain biker.


Alana:

We've made it back to civilization. Oh, actually this is where we parked our cars anyway.


Dustin Gyger:

Man, the e-bikes were key for that thing.


Alana:

Yeah. I still have full battery.


Dustin Gyger:

Nate is literally holding it one arm, let the motor do the work. How was it?


Nate:

Smooth. Smooth.


Dustin Gyger:

Wow. And then you can see we're riding on some gravel here. Fat Tire took it no problem. I think it's a good place to end. You can see the sign there. We're actually right at Camp Pendleton, the beginning of it. So for those that don't know Camp Pendleton, it's a huge military base down here, south of Orange County, in between Orange County and San Diego.


Dustin Gyger:

So that'll do it. Thanks for joining the Facebook live. How many people with us right now?


Nate:

16 right now.


Dustin Gyger:

You 16, thanks for sticking around and stay tuned to find out where the next mystery location on lives going to be and join us. So don't forget your journey, your experience. Enjoy the ride.
