Back in 2018, we shared How to Buy a Mountain Bike—a brilliant short from IFHT Films on our shared mountain biking addiction (umm…I mean passion).
Now, two and half years later, the Canadian YouTube outfit has teamed up with Trek and Bosch eBike Systems for the well-overdue sequel.
Like the original, Time to Buy An E-Bike takes a fun yet honest view on modern life. Weaving through the highs, lows, and everything in between.
Our lead character is now a family man and married to Jess, who he met in the first film. The story picks up after he quits his soul-crushing office job and starts his own business (making picnic tables for squirrels). Is it just me, or does that actually sound like a good business idea?
Anyway, long story short, he decides to get an e-bike and a second one for his wife. Sure, there are still the same challenges in life, but being able to get outside on his electric steed seems to make it just a little easier.
“Every day you battle to run errands. Ah yeah, baby—it’s time for a bike ride. Leaving the house is no longer a chore. It’s an experience. There’s nothing holding you back anymore. This is you going full carpe diem.”
