Mother Nature may be beautiful, powerful, and mystifying, but it’s Father Time who eventually catches up with all of us. We start out young and eager on our cute little red tricycles, our parents giving us an early push.

The horsepower grows. The torque climbs higher. The sun ages our leather riding gloves until the lines begin to match those on our faces.
And one day, without fail, Father Time catches us all. We end up right back on a trike, savoring the stability of three wheels to give our old, broken bodies one last wind-in-our-faces highway thrill.

I’ve spent the last few weeks with Luna’s new $1395 Eclipse folding fat tire e-bike. It is unlike any other e-bike on the market, and yet I can recommend it enthusiastically for a big swath of the foldable fat tire e-bike market. And even some general e-bikers. Here’s why:
If you’re tired of sitting in traffic on the way to or from work, leave that all behind when you opt instead for an electric scooter. Hover-1’s Alpha model can travel up to 18 MPH and can even climb hills up to 15-degrees too. Plus, it’s on sale for just $200 refurbished, which is at least $160 below its normal going rate. We also have a wide selection of Tesla, Greenworks, and other e-bike discounts in today’s New Green Deals, so you won’t want to miss that either.
