Every year on November 11th, China celebrates their own version of Black Friday known as “Single’s Day”. The origin story is a bit odd (something about celebrating single people, hence the four 1’s), but the point is that it has turned into a massive international shopping holiday with crazy good deals on sites like AliExpress. Last year Alibaba reported over $25B in sales in one day.
The discounted prices cover just about everything, from computers to toothbrushes (seriously, I’m not kidding). But what we’re really interested in are the EV’s and associated parts for things like electric bicycles, e-scooters, e-skateboards, etc. Read on to see a list of some of the best deals we’ve found this year.
But to make light electric vehicle commuting safe and fun, you’ll need the right kit. Here’s a list of recommended gear you’ll need when transforming your commute from a four-wheeled traffic-laden slog to a two-wheeled fun-fest. Each piece of gear described below is something I have used in my own commuting and can personally vouch for.
