Electric bicycle Stories November 10

Every year on November 11th, China celebrates their own version of Black Friday known as “Single’s Day”. The origin story is a bit odd (something about celebrating single people, hence the four 1’s), but the point is that it has turned into a massive international shopping holiday with crazy good deals on sites like AliExpress. Last year Alibaba reported over $25B in sales in one day.

The discounted prices cover just about everything, from computers to toothbrushes (seriously, I’m not kidding).

Each piece of gear described below is something I have used in my own commuting and can personally vouch for.
