Best Gear for Biking the Best Trails

Gear Wrapz from New York to Los Angeles with Harry Fryer

Congratulations to our hero, Harry Fryer the Electric Cowboy, who rode 4,360 miles from New York to Los Angeles on his Super 73 E-bike!
What an ACHIEVEMENT!!! You can see his entire journey on Instagram at electriccowboyofficial.

Harry shared his journey along the way to showcase the capability of light electric vehicles and to promote sustainable transport. His three-month excursion began in March 2023 when he departed New York City. He participated in live events and hosted Q&A sessions with the electric bike and motorcycle communities to share his journey and talk about the gear he’s using to overcome various challenges.

We were thrilled to hear that he used our Gear Wrapz to secure his gear to his bike. Check out his full review below:

“Hi Guys. I thought I’d quickly tell you about how I’m tying things to my bike. I’m actually using Alliance Rubber Gear Wrapz. I’ve had many things fall off this bike along the journey.  I’ve had straps come off.  I’ve had bungee cords snap on me. These are just indestructible. I tie the 7” and 10” ones on to the Molly panel here and then I also use a smaller size one in 4” for smaller things.

I picked up a pack of these Alliance Gear Wrapz….and they’ve just been insane. They’re super easy to use and just a really clever design all around. You just twist that through the middle and that pops out. I also use them on my battery chargers. Look how neat that is.

Fun fact. You go into your nearest grocery store, see a pack of asparagus or vegetables or lobster claw and they’re held together by a rubber band, chances are they are from Alliance Rubber.”

Start Your Next Unforgettable Journey in Arkansas

We hope that the Electric Cowboy’s journey will inspire others to get outside and enjoy what nature has to offer. In our home state (Arkansas), the shared-use trails that span 75 miles were recently named as Outside Magazine’s winner for best biking trails against all 50 states. That’s reason enough to get outside and start your own unforgettable journey. You can read the full story on page 63 of the May/June issue titled “The Journey Issue.” Here is a snippet of what they had to say about Arkansas:

“Arkansas has pumped a lot of energy and money into its mountain-biking trails. As a result, the state transformed into a world-class destination almost overnight. One of its most robust initiatives is a public-private partnership that created Monument Trails, an array of singletrack in Arkansas’s state parks. Many routes were designed and built by Rogue Trails, a firm based in the town of Rogers made up of former racers who take land management and sustainability seriously. The first were unveiled in 2019, another 17 were introduced in the past year and a half, and today some 75 miles span Hobbs, Mount Nebo, Pinnacle Mountain, and Devil’s Den State Parks. The shared-use trails traverse iconic landscapes, including the Ozark Mountains, pristine hardwood forests on rugged plateaus, and limestone domes, and you’ll find yourself wheeling across flowy cross-country terrain and bombing technical downhills. Bentonville, with its dynamic craft breweries, and Eureka Springs, boasting a vibrant art scene, are top choices for places to stay while you play. Funding for the expanding trail system is supported by the Arkansas Parks and Recreation Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to developing local outdoor offerings, with patronage from the Walton Family Foundation. This year marks the centennial for Arkansas State Parks, so go celebrate.”
