I don't ride that kind of trails but I follow it for the tech that always shows up first in the extreme off road bikes.
No, I'm strictly tube with slime. Don't believe in tubeless for the type of terrain I ride.
Ahhh... got it. Similar issue here where I ride (when off trail), not mesquite thorns but low lying cacti with gnarly thorns.No, I'm strictly tube with slime. Don't believe in tubeless for the type of terrain I ride.
We have mesquite thorns here and they are long enough to go through the tannus but slime plugs the hole.
I use a ‘clickstand’. Just use this site's search. I put up thread not long ago.Pretty bike. I expanded the photo of your Hydra, I wanted to see what is holding it up and trying to spot a mounting point for a kickstand I see none.
When I get mine, I will install a kickstand. If a kickstand is something you're adding to your bike later on. Can you post and let us know how you're gonna go about doing it. ( Pics of your Hydra show a stick holding it up)
I'm confused. What is 'Convertair'? You must know I have advanced CRS so things are fuzzy a lot. ( that's Can't Remember s*it for the young ones )Reed I think you bought the last of the Convertair in black. I had to get a set in shinny aluminum. The least you could do is tell us how the Hydra rides and climbs on your problem areas and trails.
And, if you don't mind, how is your display to read in direct sunlight?
Ohhhhh, the presta to Schrader converters. Things are great. You will love them. If you want them black try magic marker.Ahh, sounds like me for having to learn everything new.
I tried to get those Presta to Shrader converter stems in black. No joy. Well okay, good luck on your weather taming down.
Rio running alongside of you, or in the hitched trailer? Those are the pictures that I want to see. Trying to convince the wife that I can do that with our pups!Got The 'Old' Bike Out Today
Wanted to replace the GP5 grips I had stolen off the Frey AM 1000 for the Hydra. ( sure love the way Ergon grips attach ) I had not ridden the old girl in like three weeks. She's been mouldering away in the storage trailer. Hopped on her and me and Rio took off down the road. Boy, I still love this bike. She's my 'Ford Raptor Pickup' bike. Set up to trailer and has a strong rack and fenders. Having two sorts of powerful ebikes makes me happy happy happy.
Of course there is little comparison to the Hydra which is my 'Porsche Cayenne' sort of bike. Except for the fact they both have the excellent Archon X1 motor.
Rio does not like the trailer which is strange given he is nuts to ride almost anything. Dog is a riding fool. Perches with his front feet on the console and watches ever foot of road and inspects every passing or following vehicle. Can't keep him off the tractor. I still have not trained him to ride the trailer but we will get there.Rio running alongside of you, or in the hitched trailer? Those are the pictures that I want to see.

Get a covered ( screened ) trailer. I should have and may still have to build a cover for my 'bob' type trailer.Rio running alongside of you, or in the hitched trailer? Those are the pictures that I want to see. Trying to convince the wife that I can do that with our pups!
