    If I up the budget and be patriotic and spend my Corona check, might get a pair of ebikes for the Mrs and me.

    I see Rad Rovers go by the back yard on occasion. The look of the stance / geometry fits my eye. Front suspension. Rear hub drive. I'd still want some rear suspension for washboard sections of the forest service roads. 3" would work. I should test ride one for the experience of ebiking.

    The Rad Rover is local built, not pricey and I don't see many used for sale so it piqued my interest. Your impressions from the seat would be welcome. I'm really looking for a 2 wheel version of my 2000 Jeep TJ. Check these thoughts please. Does it feel like 65lbs as a bicycle? A 65lb motorcycle on FS roads sounds sweet. How would it handle moderate speed single track? Is braking smooth and even? Hard tail thoughts? Since it's a rental, how high did you huck it?

    There's no such thing as bad snow, just shitty skiers.

    Edit: this is what my buddy got and what he has to say about it.

    It's awesome...used it a ton during black outs. Solar panel is a joke though. If you use on briefcase panel (big fucker) takes a full week to charge the unit...you need a few panels to make a difference and the aren'r cheap or small.

    Thanks for looking that up and yes that is probably the best option to get a reliable charge without a wall charge. Besides the $$ this is not the option I want as my Van setup is minimal with a floor, bed and a couple of storage boxes and is going to stay that way. So that amount of power is way overkill for me plus regardless of the charger it takes a long time to charge a Ebike battery. Anyway, in my situation I think it is best to take my pedal bikes to places that don't like ebikes like Bend and places where we are out in the field and no chance for a wall mount. So, on trips might be best option to camp for a couple of days and stay at a motel for a nite. We can then eat out and get a shower as well. Thanks again just looking for options.

    Bafang Bigfoot update, battery bag one of two zippers shit the bed. Non drive side crank arm wiggled loose on a ride and didn't notice right away. May have pooched it, stupid square tapered cranks don't like to be loose.

    Otherwise I've been cranking out the gravel miles while trails are thawing out. Can easily do 40km level 1 assist on half a battery. Really giggled when I climbed the hill leaving town going to my place at 15km/hr level 3assist, it's 9%grade. Non e bike speeds are 5km/hr.

    Check and tighten the BB tightener bracket every once in a while. You might noticed the motor shifting when you goose the throttle.

    Dammit... I'm pretty sure I want one for mine but it's really not in the budget right now.

    And I don't really know my way around a bike and worry I can't do the install myself.
