Heybike Anniversary sale: Score a new e-bike and save big

With gas prices up and warm weather finally rolling in, now’s a great time to invest in an electronic bike if you’ve been thinking about getting one but needed another reason to finally take the plunge. E-bikes combine the traditional bicycle design with modern electrics that let you ride longer distances and give you some extra horsepower when you need it, without sacrificing the fun and enjoyment that you get from a bike ride. Heybike, one of our favorite e-bike makers, is currently celebrating its anniversary with a two-week sale, providing the perfect opportunity to score a name-brand electronic bike at a discount and score some freebies while you’re at it.

If you like to cycle or you’re thinking of getting into it, the advantages of an e-bike should be fairly obvious. An electronic bike is essentially just a bicycle with an electric motor attached. This lets you ride the e-bike without using the pedals at all, much like a motor scooter, or you can use the pedals to provide some of your own power to extend the e-bike’s effective range. That electric motor can also give you a boost when you need it, such as when you’re pedaling up a hill. And unlike a motor scooter, if the e-bike’s battery runs out of juice, you can still use the pedals to get around just as you would with any normal bicycle.

Heybike’s range of e-bicycles currently features five models including a new one for 2022, the all-terrain Heybike Explore, now available. Commuters and city-goers will appreciate the classically-inspired design of the Heybike Cityscape Electric Cruiser Bike or the Race Electric Bike Commuter Bike, both of which offer a battery range of up to 40 miles (25 miles on electricity only, 40 if you’re willing to do some pedaling) and a max load of up to 264 pounds. Both also deliver a top speed of 19-20 miles per hour, and when it’s time to recharge, the removable battery pack juices up in as little as five hours. There’s even a USB port for charging your mobile device from the battery while you ride.

Want to hit the trails? The Heybike Mars Folding e-bike, Heybike Ranger Step-Thru, and Heybike Explore Step-Thru e-bikes are built to handle some outdoor fun thanks to their four-inch wide fat tires that deliver extra traction, stability, and comfort in contrast to standard bike tires. The tires on the Heybike ranger and Explore models are all-terrain as well. The Mars Folding e-bike and the Ranger Step-Thru bike both utilize a quiet 500-watt brushless motor that delivers a smooth ride with a maximum range of 48 miles; the new Heybike Explore boasts an even bigger 750-watt brushless motor that’s capable of a 70-mile maximum travel range before needing a recharge. These three models all offer a 330-pound load capacity.

REI Anniversary Sale: Save big on these awesome Garmin smartwatches
REI Anniversary Sale Garmin deals

In the Android fitness smartwatch scene, two titans have been duking it out for several years now: Fitbit and Garmin. Both of these companies have long been on the list of our favorite fitness watches, but when it comes to high-end full-featured wearables, Garmin is the name to beat – especially if you prefer classic styling details like round steel cases and metal bands over squared-off rubberized cases.

If you’re in the market for a full-on smartwatch that can do double duty as a highly detailed fitness tracker (and something that’s not just a jumped-up Bluetooth pedometer), then look no further. As part of its ongoing Anniversary Sale ahead of Memorial Day weekend, REI is offering discounts of up to $150 on a few of the best Garmin fitness smartwatches, and we’ve got the best ones right here:

I turned my van into an office with a battery-powered AC and heat pump
An EcoFlow Wave 2 air conditioner and heat pump inside a Mitsubishi Delica van.

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.
