OBC interview with Jay

We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Jay Torrisi. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Jay below.

Jay, appreciate you joining us today. Learning the craft is often a unique journey from every creative – we’d love to hear about your journey and if knowing what you know now, you would have done anything differently to speed up the learning process.

I first got an intro to soldering in the 7th grade, when I made my first circuit board. After that I was self taught in refining my skills. Practice is what makes me faster and faster at doing LED light jobs. My attention to detail and being a perfectionist is my most essential skills.

Discover How E-Bikes Strengthened Their Bond: A Love Story on Two Wheels

This Valentine’s Day, amidst the traditional chocolates and roses, we’re celebrating a unique love story—a tale that intertwines tragedy, music, community — and a heart pumping passion for riding electric bikes. 


Love can blossom in many unexpected places, but for our customers Gingerose and Christopher Pixely, the high speed couple actually met at the funeral of a mutual friend. But from that somber occasion, an electric connection was made, leading them down a path of love and companionship that has lasted almost seven years. However, it wasn’t until the pandemic hit that they truly discovered the spark that would bring them even closer together: riding e-bikes. 

As the rest of the world slowed down, the Pixely’s found themselves spending more time together, seeking out new adventures as a married couple. The journey into the world of e-bikes started innocently enough with the rental of an e-scooter in San Diego. While the thrill of cruising along the coast was exhilarating, it was only when they ventured further, hopping on e-bikes on Coronado Island, that they truly felt a sense of liberation. “It was then we realized they made us feel like kids again. And from there we purchased our e-bikes, and it’s been quite a ride since. Lol.” joked Gingerose.

Realizing the potential for adventure and exploration, they decided to invest in their own e-bikes, but didn’t really know where to start. “


To the couple’s surprise, the stars aligned and they were able to swing by and get a HyperScorpion from our San Diego warehouse. Since then the Pixelys have racked up a whopping combined 8,000 miles on their Juiced e-bikes. Little did they know, this chance of fate would not only transform their lives but also lead them to a community that shares their passion.

Enter the Lit Riderz, based out of Southern California, this tight-knit group of friends brought together by a shared love for LED lights, sweet jams and e-bikes of course! Christopher and Gingerose are proud to not only be members but also co-founders of this vibrant e-bike club. What started as 3 couples with a common interest quickly blossomed into something much greater. With synchronized audio banging close to 10,000 watts of sound, a fleet of 24 e-bikes and trikes adorned with over 88,000 LEDs, the award winning bike club lights up the community and bumps positivity wherever they roll. Hosting community rides and taking part in parades all throughout SoCal, inspiring many people to start their own e-bike journey. 


But beyond the flashy lights and booming rhythms, it’s the camaraderie and sense of belonging that truly sets the Lit Riderz apart. Riding together, they have forged friendships that will last a lifetime and created memories that they will cherish forever. 

For us being together means doing everything together. When we first started riding we enjoyed the freedom and places we saw.” says Christopher, “Eventually, it led us to meet many amazing and wonderful people. E-bikes have brought a lot of us together as a community. And when two people who love each other become a part of that, it strengthens the bond they already have.” 


This Valentine’s Day, as we reflect on the Pixely’s electric journey together, we are grateful for our role in the unexpected twists and turns that brought them to where they are today. From the depths of grief to the heights of joy, their love has only grown stronger, thanks in part to the simple joy of riding side by side. So here’s to love, laughter, super bass and many more miles of adventure ahead.

You’ll DEFINITELY see rider Gingerose coming down the road on her modded Scorpion X.

She’s also added a 100 Watt loud speaker with siren, cupholder, JBL music speaker, phone holder and upgraded pedals to her ride. Chris, along with his wife Gingerose , and 10 other riders, started an LED Bike Club called the Lit Riderz. “Now we’re on a mission to inspire others to live their best life and join us in the biking community,” he says.

San Diego Electric Light Parade shouts out to Lit Riderz in Bold Journey Magazine

As loved as CicLAvia is, it’s strictly a daytime affair. In the tradition of the nocturnal cycling group the Midnight Ridazz, Lit Riders keep their rides limited to late hours. After all, how else would you see their neon LED gear?

That’s right, this bicycle group lights up LA with luminous LED lights and synchronized audio amps installed on their bikes. It’s almost like a DIY Disney Main Street Electrical Parade. A relatively new club, the Liit Riderz formed in May 2022 when a group of friends from San Diego and LA decided to meet up for a late night ride. 

While they obviously enjoy cycling in Los Angeles, the fledgling group’s ethos extends beyond cyclists. They hope to illuminate the country, even those who’ve never touched a bike, to the myriad benefits of cycling. And with their LEDs fired up, anytime is the right time for a ride. 


Cyclists Take a Relaxing Ride Through the Valley

 Another peculiar sight, right in the middle of the Winnetka hub, was a bicycle with a small skeleton fixed to the handlebars, both of which were completely decked out in Coca-Cola memorabilia.

Some cyclists livened up the event by blasting music. One bike had a boombox tied to the front.

Lit Riderz, a bicycle club, blared music from loudspeakers they pulled with their bicycles, playing “Atomic Dog” and “Humps for the Boulevard” as they cruised down the street. One member grooved to the beat while on an electric unicycle.

After reaching one end, cyclists could take a break before turning around and going through the neighborhoods one more time. The event was a mellow and relaxing affair. It may have been a cold day, but it surely pleased the participants who were glad that rain didn’t ruin their parade.
