  1. Ours is a platform/hitch style. The bikes are heavy enough, then you add some accessories and the weight starts to really add up. Not sure how comfortable I'd be just having them suspended with straps and bouncing around on the back of the JK. Trying to think of the other times I've seen pics of Sondors on the back of a vehicle, and just about every time they're on a platform type rack of some type. Just something to think about. https://www.amazon.com/Thule-9044-Classic-Bike-Receivers/dp/B019RNQCHA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1546796621&sr=8-2&keywords=Thule+t2+9044 And if your buddies are pedaling at 25, you could dial to five and just barely turn the pedals and you'll keep up with them. Sometimes I love to go fast as the bike will go, but pedal as slow as I possibly can, just to keep the motor going. Love the looks I get from people like, how can he go that fast pedaling that slow. Nice with the bigger battery though, that will give you so much more extended range. And then with the gears, you'll be lapping those guys!
  2. Nothing like jumping right in head first Martin! I'm thinking about doing a 3 speed conversion on one of mine but still trying to decide if it's worth it for me or not. My buddy with the Thin says that he hardly ever changes gears, but he's similar to you in that he rides mostly long rides just on the street. We're in an area with a little bit of hills around us, so I imagine I'll do it at some point. We've got a JKUR ourselves with a Thule rack for the Sondors to go with us. Any chance you do any Geocaching? Between the Jeep and the bikes, you can go just about anywhere on land. Good luck with the build. I'll keep an eye out for your updates.
  3. Hello Martin. We're in the Valley of the Sun out by the Superstitions, having fun with a couple of original fatties. One of them similar to yours. We ride mostly off road, probably 90/10, trails/road, so quite familiar with goat head thorns. I use generous amount of Slime, as well as liners, and so far have not had a flat. Yet. That being said I hope I haven't jinx myself. I've got a buddy of mine who lives on the west side that just picked up a Thin. Maybe we'll get over there to go riding sometime. Enjoy your bike, you're going to love it! Oh....... and watch out for Cholla as well! OUCH!
