1. You've spent countless hours scouring the web, visiting shops, and dreaming about it in your sleep. You finally have all the components for your dream bike, now you have just got to put the pieces together. While it's not rocket science, it takes finesse, skill and practice to do it right. The thrill and excitement of taking that first ride is worth the effort.

  3. The iBike Wall of Death, as it came to be known, claimed a few riders. Some serious crashes forced the cancellation of the event at this year's Jackalope Festival in Montreal. The Starley Rover Society was there with Velo iBike throughout the weekend, riding the Wall and having a great time nonetheless.
