  1. Hey, Mary. The rear triangle on Fat Tire Bikes are too wide to fit into most Indoor Trainers, besides trainers use the rear axel nuts for capture and your FoldXS has the motor cable exiting the right side nut. Bike Trainers and Rollers are predominantly purchased by recreational and fitness riders. I’ve owned one thinking I could entertain myself by watching TV while getting exercise, NOT! Like Jack, I learned & preferred to use the very sturdy stationary bikes w/monitors at the gym while watching cycling videos from the library on my laptop, ported to the bike’s screen, during inclement weather. I could also use the other gym equipment machines. Now, I use my own multi station home gym in my studio, where I keep my bikes. I’ve got great cold weather riding gear and if it’s wet, I just don’t ride. It take 2 hours to clean the road scum off my bikes after a ride in the rain or wet. Never the less, if you just have to ride indoors, buy yourself a cheap beater bike for your trainer. I never considered using any of my regular expensive analog mounts in my trainer During my trainer ownership (I gave mine to a neighbor) I found the Fluid Trainer was the best option for setting resistance. That said, technology pedals onward and so I suspect, so have trainers in the 20 yrs since mine. Mary, don’t forget to add pictures of your FoldXS and riding adventures to our picture gallery. REDDY

  2. I'm sure it's possible and even likely to make something like that work. I assume you're wanting it for exercise? If it is an exercise option you're considering, I personally think bike trainers are more ideally suited to competitors who can train better by being on the same bike they'll be racing. In my own case, we have a dedicated stationary bike for indoor riding, and in my opinion only, it's a far more convenient and stable indoor solution than a trainer. On the other hand, if you're already parking your e-bike indoors, then maybe it's a viable alternative -- and could possibly double as a repair/maintenance stand -- ???

  3. I have a folding version much like the Hollywood Fat tire rack (both wheel support bars fold up for compact storage). I've hauled my Rockstar and my wife's Cruiser hundreds of miles with no issues whatsoever. As you mention Jack, the inside bike is a bit of a hassle but I've found that it's much easier to remove the rear yolk and adapter, load the inside bike first and then place the adapter back on. I thought I had a pic of both bikes but this is the only one I can find, on my way to a ride with the buds.

  4. I wanted to reinforce the leg, add a little to the length and increase the footpad size on my 100# Highly Modified Sondors Original (only the frame, fork, battery triangle box & bottom bracket remain original. Found a good diameter plastic tubing to fit over the existing stand leg and slipped a bar stool leg rubber foot over the existing after filling it with Plasticoat. REDDY

  5. Clearwater Betty here, just a different email. Thank you for your excellent input. I had thought of switching out the tires but currently the ride is so superior I am resistant. After watching a YouTube or two per your suggestion, I’m going to get back out there and try a few things before I start altering. Thank you. More importantly, if you’re talking about Mahuffer’s on Madeira Beach, or Shadrack’s on St. Pete Beach, they’re both still there. You didn’t mention good food so I’m thinking you’re not talking about Dead Bob’s…but but they are all landmarks and have survived the pandemic!
