    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    Yes, the FS is slightly heavy. I take off the battery and the seat post before mounting it on my bike rack. Here's a pic of the Rocket out at Dead Horse Point State Park in Utah from yesterday. That's the Colorado river in back, 2000 ft down.

    Or you could just get a vinyl decal to slap on it. Quite a bit cheaper. :-)

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    Back from a 2 week trip. Cruised the New River Trail in Virginia and the NCR Trail in Maryland. Great riding, even with the 2 flat tires on the New River Trail. Notice I now have fenders on The Rocket. Stops most of the mud from hitting my back and my face.

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    Here it is with the hydraulic brakes and plenty of mud. Some mud on me too. (Did the Pond trail twice this morning.) I've even mounted the front headlight, though I do not anticipate riding after dark. Anyone have a suggestion for fenders that would fit?

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    Well, I'm done riding for the day and will head home tomorrow. Some observations about the bike: -Going up the steepest hills at PAS5 and the motor peaking at 1500 watts. Plenty of power -Smooth ride on even the bumpiest roads -Lost a bolt out of the kickstand and replaced both bolts with...

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    It is a fun bike. My old bones can't take riding around in the snow (too cold) but I am enjoying myself this week. Here's a pic of me and the SuperBike cruising Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. 2-3 people a day ask me about the bike. I wish Biktrix had put their name on...

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    I had an Evelo Aurora before this (actually, I bought it for my wife and she kept falling off it and refused to ride it). This FS is so much more fun. Keep in mind Biktrix had some challenges to overcome, as I received one of the first production bikes. But after a month and a few hundred extra...

    Sounds good. Where did you get the 725E? I checked the internet and could not find any for sale.

    Nope, you are right and I am wrong. Looks like they put mechanical rather than hydraulic brakes on it. I need to look into upgrading. Thanks!

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    The FS comes standard with hydraulic disc brakes and I am glad it does. I've already had to make a couple power stops to not get run over by cars. And yes, I am enjoying it!

    Yes, the tires are different. I blew out the back tire in less than 2 weeks by riding over large, sharp rocks. Now my wife just can't stand that the tires are different and insists that I get a tire for the front that matches the rear. :)

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    Here it is with the Wren and a couple extras I added: 20A battery, back cargo shelf, noseless seat, and handlebars raised with a MTB adjustable extension. Fun to ride even with a temperature of 92F!

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    Yes, the tires were an option. Great ride yesterday, the full suspension a tremendous difference over the Evelo hardtail I had. I'll be back out again this morning.

    Full suspension Ultra bike!

    It is so difficult to not hit that throttle and fly. I keep telling myself-pedal, pedal, get that exercise.

    So I peeled off the bubble wrap, took it out of the box, programmed the Display, charged up the battery, and actually got to ride it for 5 minutes this morning.

    Very nice bike. Mine should be here...well, Purolator said today. But it was in Minnesota this morning so I won't be waiting by the door all night for it. Hopefully by Friday.

    My bike is being shipped by Purolator. (I thought they made oil filters.) Rated 0.4 out of 5, over a thousand reviews. HaHa! This will be fun.
