Hi, my name is Pete Lautenschlager (Streamingpete). For the last number of years, I have been a stay at home dad of three great kids running a Bed and Breakfast in Northern Canada. Back in the late 80's (more exciting times), I worked as a electronic technician at Cherokee Recording Studio, a world-class recording studio in Los Angeles California, where artists like David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Cher, and Whitesnake among many others came through the place and did their magic.
I even have my name on a David Crosby album "Oh Yes I can". There I learned what good sound was and the difference between quality products and crap.
My primary mode of transportation in LA was a 21-speed mountain bike, in fact, I had two in the four years I lived there. One bike got stolen in front of the Guitar Center on Sunset Blvd. I have always love bikes and the freedom they bring, and here it is 30 years later, and the new E-bikes have really caught my eye. I like to stay active and E-bikes are my new favorite thing.
About Gear Gadgets and Gizmos
I have always had an interest in the latest gadgets, so I started a website to share my passion. Gear Gadgets and Gizmos is a way to learn about new gear and products some of them are being crowdfunded and are brand new to the market.
If you have a new interesting product that you are crowdfunding, please contact me I will put it on my site and do my best to help support you. When your product is ready, I will review your new product and share it with my readers.
One great example is a newly crowdfunded product that we are featuring and trying to support is the Wiivv 3D Custom printed Sandals and insoles see my full review of this innovative product and my new favorite sandals.

I would like to interview you on Skype and ask you a number of questions about your E-bike and personal experience. This should take about an hour or less. I would like to have a good time with you and have you share your thoughts on your bike. You can then send a few pictures of your E-bike and I will include them in a post on my blog.
