  • Can you introduce yourself briefly (where you from, what you do etc.,)
    I am from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and have been living in Dubai for 1.5 years. I am a Science Teacher at a local private elementary school.Ariel Rider Review.
  • Why you choose to cycle in your daily commute?
    As soon as I started, I was forced to take the bus to work. I live on the border of Dubai and Sharjah, near Al Mamzar Beach… the traffic in the morning is horrendous and so i was planning out a way to get to work faster rather than the 45 min to 1 hour bus commute for 10 kms. I bought two bikes before yours but as the spring approached it was getting really hot so i started to look at E-bikes. My students see me ride to work everyday. They know why I do it. There’s too much traffic in Dubai. I get exercise.  It’s good for the Environment.Ariel Rider Review.

  • Why did you chose Ariel Rider in the first place?
    I originally choose Fuji. I picked up an orange single-speed that reminded me of a bike i owned in Canada. Then, I bought another Fuji, a 29nr, MTB… awesome. but as the temps rose i found myself looking at E-bikes. Your picture and company came up and i knew it would be an inevitable match.Ariel Rider Review.

  • Are you happy with your decision?
    I am but the front suspension issues caused me a bit of alarm in the beginning. Which was all solved in the end, it looks cool and with tire inflation slightly under the regular levels i get the cushion i need while riding.Ariel Rider Review.

  • What have you modified on your bike so far and why? Modifications?
    It’s a 100 lb workhorse of a bike. So i put on a rear rack that carries my saddle bags in which i fill with work material or beach material. I have  replaced the stem to an adjustable one and cranked it into higher riding position for a guy that is 6’4. I have bungeed on some JBL speakers to the handle bars so i can ride with full music sound-system. Lastly, or firstly, i changed the tires that came with the bike to Fat-Bobs, so that i can get a top speed of 46 km/h.Ariel Rider Review.

  • Are there any unforgettable moments you’ve faced with your ebike?Ariel Rider Review.
    I pull up to a street light and a guy in a Ferrari asks me if I am riding a Harley. Also, took a corner at about 35 km/h, front tire skids out, i put my right foot down. Bike skids ten feet or so in to oncoming traffic, regain control and ride on…. too much sand on the road eh? Ariel Rider Review.

  • Would you consider purchasing one of the 2016 model Ariel Rider Ebikes?
    The designs look ‘slicker’ but i like the balance and position of the battery in my model. For me, it’s all about weight distribution.Ariel Rider Review.
