Why you should buy the Co-op Cycles CTY e2.2 Electric Bike

With a more powerful Shimano e6100 motor than the previous model, the e2.2 has improved acceleration and better hill climbing capabilities, so you can count on it to remain reliable to take you wherever you wish to travel. The motor is strong and virtually silent, and has three pedal-assist modes plus a walk mode. It also comes with a higher-quality battery that supports the motor and increases the range and fenders. Most importantly, its Shimano hydraulic brakes make sure you have stopping power you can rely on, with more nuance that ever before.

As powerful as the electric details are, the construction is equally impressive. With its low stand-over height design, this bike is easy to get on and off as well as easy to stabilize when you’re on it. With the upright riding position, you have excellent visibility, and the adjustable stem gives you the ability to fine-tune your fit. The bike’s 27.5-inch wheels have a multisurface tread profile that allow you to roll fast on hard pack but also have grip on gravel or dirt roads. It comes in three sizes, so this bike is going to be great for everyone, no matter your height. Use it alongside one of the best cycling apps to truly get the most out of your rides.

At $2,159, it’s pretty hard to pass up the chance to save $540 off the original price of this $2,699 e-bike. If you’re still on the fence, don’t forget to check out our e-bike reviews, but don’t wait too long because this deal won’t last forever.

I turned my van into an office with a battery-powered AC and heat pump

Like a lot of remote workers, I know I’m lucky to be able to work from home. I have a home office with a comfy leather chair, a skylight, and an oversized doofus of a dog, Marty, who reclines adorably on the couch behind me for Zoom meetings. But I’d also be lying if I didn’t admit I go a little stir crazy from time to time, yearning to work from somewhere other than the same place I eat, sleep, and relax.

How about a van? I bought my 1990 Mitsubishi Delica for camping, but it always seemed like it could serve as a mobile office with a view, if not for one critical shortcoming: For nine months out of the year in Portland, it’s too cold, and for the other three, it’s too hot. Without adding thousands of dollars for a battery power system, my best bet was heavy socks and gloves. But EcoFlow gave me a glimmer of hope at CES 2023 when I spotted the EcoFlow Wave 2. With an onboard battery, it promised to heat or cool anywhere, no external power system needed.

I was wrong. E-bikes are so practical, they’re a transit cheat code
An Aventon Level 2 ebike sits outside a grocery store.

Confession: Despite loving both bikes and gadgets, e-bikes never excited me. Compared to my bicycle, e-bikes seemed unfair. Compared to my motorcycle, they seemed slow. Compared to my car, they seemed impractical.

But with $1,500 federal e-bike rebates potentially on the horizon at part of E-Bike Act, I decided it was past time to reconsider. Not just because 30% off would make them way more accessible, but because the entire idea that e-bikes could be worthy of a rebate changed the way I looked at them: less as toys, more as transit. Had I written off an entire way of getting around because I was looking at it the wrong way?
