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.
Just picked up the blue E-Lux Tahoe a few weeks ago, after over 100 miles I very happy so far, shipping a breeze (boy the boxes are huge my wife has the Elux malibu step through purchased same time), assembly was easy, everything works, ride is great, power is good, can easily get to 25mph in no time, going up hills no problem, quick response from customer service, and as a bonus they answer the phone when you call! I had looked the HImaway bikes but started reading the horror stories here about the problems and customer service, no thank you. Im 5'7" on a good day, can sit on the seat and touch the ground with my tippy toes, bike is comfortable and have had it on some dirt trails, grass, etc and it moves across with ease. Its an eye catcher and all my neighbors have rode it too. This is my first ebike, so I am no expert, but Im pleased and happy with the purchase.Any ELux Tahoe oweners?
What color do you think looks the best?
