Trike short list and why...

I just came back from 2 weeks overseas. I purchased another battery for the M-360 (I have two batteries for all my electric trikes). I haven't had a chance to ride since I came back Sunday but I'll check everything before hitting the beach with the M-360. How is going for you Jerry? dave
I have around 90 miles on her. All the difference in the world with front fork tightness since I figured out what fits over the stem screw to hold everything together. Now THAT was a brain fart!

Front basket is nice and tight - next I need a liner for it. I haven't yet taken my Chihuahua for a ride in it but soon. Got a cell phone holder for my Samsung S9 plus. The USB port on the bottom of the console may not be "quick charge", but it stays ahead of the phone's power consumption when using the GPS with Google Maps.

I lifted the limiter on the console. It can definitely do 25+mph.

None of my trips so far have been over 2 or 3 miles. I've never gone far enough for the charge meter to lose a bar. I call it "my trash and mail" bike. Our trash disposal and mail box sites are a few blocks from our house in our community.

I love it so far.

I do get plenty of "cool bike"'s from those I pass.

Interesting but Addmotor is not selling the M-330 anymore. Maybe they are selling a good number of M-360s that they decided not to offer the M-330. I do love the M-360 and ride it on the beach whenever I get a chance...low tide and reasonable weather etc.

How is the wear on your front tire doing? At 120 miles, mine is 50% worn. 98% of my riding is on asphalt.

I wonder what brand/style tire I should get when I'm ready for a new one? Certainly one that is better than 200 - 300 miles!

I have 1500+ miles on my m-330 and 200+ on my m-360 and I don't have a lot of tire wear on either one but I have done a lot of beach riding. Make sure you have checked your psi and for asphalt it should be 30 psi and for dirt or sand 15 psi. There are 4 X 20 tires which are primarily used for road riding.

I notice at 30 psi, less of the tire makes contact with the pavement resulting in more slippage when taking off. It is nearly impossible to go from a dead stop without some tire spin on asphalt. That, I believe, is where most of my wear is coming from. Maybe my driving is more aggressive than yours, and I'm OLD.

Do you have any brands, style numbers, or sources for 20" fat (4") road tires?

Sunlite XL 20" X 4 1/4" Wire Bead or Clincher Tire is one road tire ... look on ebay or ModernBike.com... I would imagine keeping the psi at 30 would cause more spin on asphalt. You might try nudging the twist throttle to minimize spin.

Yes, the hand throttle does provide a more gradual torque to the wheel. Still get a bit of spin, but not as much as engaging via peddle. I could use a .5 speed step.
