Yep, and I am guessing a lot of Tero buyers will do exactly that. When I read about the new Tero back when it was released in late September that is exactly what went through my mind. I use my Vado for city riding but I grew up riding off road and, while I am too old to go flying off jumps or anything like that now, I would not mind having a bike that just a little more off-road capable than my Vado.Camasonian: There is one thing you simply cannot easily do: replacing the fork.
I would say it would be a practical thing to buy a Tero, and:
That would create a luxury, universal e-bike.
- Add MTB fenders (if the local weather requires them)
- Add a MTB rack such as Old Man Mountain or Topeak TetraRack
- Replace tyres with good all-rounders such as Schwalbe Smart Sam (they are absolutely silent on pavement and offer good grip off-road)
- Or, replace the wheels with 27.5" Wide Trail and use even better and wider e-SUV tyres such as Schwalbe Johnny Watts
- Add external lighting
