Just put a down payment on a white Tahoe Classic for my wife with an upgraded battery and a Gunmetal (maybe Black) Tahoe Sport. Looking forward to picking them up here soon. I have an FJR that I need to sell first. Would like to find out how you like the Tahoe. Was also considering a Juiced Rip Current S. Still somewhat on the fence. I live in the central coast. Santa Maria, Kalifornia.
ICool bike. I am considering one, even put a down payment on one. I hesitate because I want to be able to transport them (my wife wants one) on a hitch rack. I have a problem with the 77lb weight, and trying to lift it up on to the rack. I am 65 and not getting any younger. Thinking about a Haibike ebike which weighs in under 50lbs. Also wondering about the battery range in real time. I know that ELux gives an estimate, but with that heavy of a bike, what will the actual range be.
I have a Tahoe "clone" from Driven Bikes and the bike fits me very well (6'3", 325 lbs.), but the 13 ah battery gives me some range anxiety. I usually ride on PAS 1 and will bump up for very brief periods to pass others. At about 26 miles, and at my weight (plus the bike's weight), I'm running out of battery. I bit the bullet and bought the Elux Tahoe Classic (glossy gunmetal) with the 20 ah battery. I am hoping the normal and eco modes will help me with battery range as well (my rides are mostly beach rides and are relatively flat). Also, my wife has a Motiv Sleek (36V) and with both of us on PAS 1, my bike goes faster, so it's hard for us to match pace with each other. I am hoping the normal and eco modes will help with that. I will update this post when I have a chance to see how the battery does for me on longer rides.
