  1. Lots of hills back on Vancouver Island, where we return to each spring. And here in Phoenix the guys I used to ride with are hitting 20 mph on non-electric road bikes. So I'd like to be able to keep up with them. What kind of Tule did you end up with? There is one for sale locally. See the pict below. Geocaching sounds like fun. I found references to some up Crown King way. Martin
  2. Hello rckound, Thanks for the info. Slime and liners are on my list. My biking is all on the streets and bike paths with local road bike guys. They do up to 100 mile rides, so I'm upgrading my Original to accomplish that mission. Got the Hookworms on today. They make the bike like like a low rider. I do like to get out back, but have a dune buggy and Jeep JL for that purpose. Got the latter stuck on the back way to Crown King the other week. Had to take the dune buggy in to rescue it. Already enjoying the bike. Makes one feel a bit like superman, it gets to 20 mph so fast. Arriving tomorrow are the next steps starting with an upgraded 52V battery https://electrobikeworld.com/products/l3-52v-20ah-panasonic-triangle-battery 35amp 48-52v KT Controller KT-LCD8H USB Color Display Thumb Throttle Sondors 6 pin HIGO plug Installed already are Bafang 48V750W rear fat bike motor with 175mm open size SHIMANO Tourney 7Spd 14-28T Freewheel SunRace Shimano Compatible Index Hanger Plate with Nut and Bolt Shimano Acera Mountain Bike Rear Derailleur Shimano Altus M311 7/8s 48x38x28 170mm Chainset 2016 with chain guard.

  3. Thanks for your advice, Reddy. I have been following your postings with interest. Any ideas how the Vees deal with goat head thorns? We have a plethora of them here in PHX. One of the things that drew me to the Hookworm tires was their reported ability to resist punctures from these.
  4. Hi all, Just bought a little used Sondors, pictured below here in Phoenix. Thanks to info found in this forum, I'm in the process of upgrading it to a road machine equipped with 750W motor, 7-speeds (21-speeds eventually?), 52V and Maxxis Hookworm tires. Thanks to all those who post the great 'how-to' articles. Martin In the far northwest of the Valley of the Sun
