    The Giz Wiz Show 1642 for Sept 29th 2017, Our 125th Independent Production. 

    We're into our third year of Independent Production thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters! If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help.  

    This week and next we'll be talking about the latest in bike gadgets as The Giz Wiz returns from Interbike 2017, a huge trade show in Las Vegas with every bike and bike gadget imaginable. There were dozens of electric bikes, let's take a look at the new premium Pacer GT model from Smartmotion being released mid to late October 2017. (And a shout out to Justin Gottlieb of Interbike PR fame for taking time to be our onsite cameraman.) 


    Here's info from the company since this bike wasn't out at the time we posted this: The Pacer GT offer all the commuting features of the popular Pacer, with a silent, silky smooth ride. The thumb throttle gives you that extra boost as you require to get up that hill, through that stream, or to get going just a bit quicker. There's a large full color LCD display with USB port integrated right into the frame. This helps keeps your bike clutter free. The mid-drive motor driving a Gates belt system to a Nuvinci hub makes the ride smooth, simple and clean. Dual high visibility LED strips on the rear carrier, an under frame LED strip, and a super bright front light illuminates your path and makes you stand out. A plus of the Gates belt drive is that you don't have to deal with the issues of a traditional chain drive. Other features include a 5 Level Pedal Assist + Throttle and a Torque Tuned Motor. As you'll hear in the video, the MSRP is $3999.00. Financing available.
