Finally got out and rode my new RadRover

I discovered this bike after watching a review by Barnacules Nerdgasm about 9 or 10 months ago but it wasn't until his most recent video that made me pull the trigger and order it.

It's been over 2 weeks since my RadRover arrived and I stayed up late after work assembling it. However, I came down with a nasty cold and didn't have the energy to go out until this last weekend.

While I was recouping, I did manage to do a couple of modifications that I discovered on this forum.
I installed the RadRover standard fat bike fenders
I installed the Ibera PakRak IB-RA5 Touring Bicycle Carrier and Quick Release Bag
I changed out the seat with a Sunlite Cloud-9, Bicycle Suspension Cruiser Saddle
I de-badged the large Rad Power Bikes branding using plasti dip spray (I left the RadRover for now)
I purchased the Ibera Bike Large Triangle Frame Bag to do the battery concealing mod but have not gotten around to it yet.

So I took it out Saturday and rode around the park trails with my sons. I put a little over 4 miles on it. Sunday we went back out and rode for another 5 miles. I'm a big guy and lately my knee was killing me if I rode for more than a mile or two which has kept me from biking for some time now. Only using the pedal assist on 1 ( so my kids could keep up), I could have kept going for several more miles. With the time change I'll be able to get out after work and ride a couple miles each day.

I really am impressed with the bike. The build quality seems to be top notch. I've never had a fat tire bike or an electric one but for trail riding of any kind the fat tire is the way to go.

I'm looking forward to riding this bike for years to come. Additionally, I appreciate all the ideas and support that I have seen on this forum.

Thanks!
