Ah, but I'm a great beta tester... Last chance as my schedule for testing e-bikes is getting full

I'll add that, while not especially impressed with the juggernaut, I like that 20" step-thru fat bike. With options it has possibilities.
I'm trying to teach my CCS to pull a plow, but for now it's a carriage horse.

Not impressed ? How you ridden one ? Big power !

My issue is with the mid-drive; I'd rip one to pieces just like I used to on skis with fully cranked down bindings. They're fine for a certain
type of riding which is seldom used by hulks my size....or my age. My 650w bike can do 28 mph+ & that's plenty fast enough for me.
'Sides, there are no juggernauts around here to test ride so the point is moot.

Moot? Um, how can you debate the ride quality of something you've never ridden?

Just voicing my preferences. Don't care if you don't like them. Experience otherwise is unavailable. 1000w empties the battery fast, I don't
need that much power.

I ain't gonna beat myself up over it. Maybe if there was one handy for a test ride i might change my mind, but don't ask me to buy a pig in poke.

I don't care one way or another, but bad mouthing a bike you never rode is a bit rude to the builder.
This is pretty common, I'm finding. Much ado about nothing! Making blanket statements about performance or ability perform without having ridden a particular model is just air. But I respect John's willingness to fuss. The joys of forums. All good...

I think ride the bike and THEN, state your opinion. But, that's just me. I see the same nonsense on car forums all the time.

Fine, show me the bike. First off, I wasn't it putting down, Just stating what would happen if I were to ride it. I'd break it or break myself.
Some bikes ain't fur everyone.

I don't think you could ride it any harder than I do jumping curbs and such. Try that on a hub drive and you will be picking up spokes.
