It is in transit on the tracking number, that is a little bit insulting...You know this because you ran the tracking number and the trucking company is showing it "in transit", or did some tech tell you that to get on to the next customer?
You're familiar with tracking numbers?
They are both crap. Build your own so you have a working bike next year too.So I think I have seen about every fat tire ebike on the internet now I believe I have it narrowed down to the final two options, the RadRover 5 vs the BPM Imports F95 17ah 1000w. But there is not a lot of information about the BPM bikes that I can find. It does have a 19'' frame rather than 18'' of the RadRover and has a 17ah battery with a stronger motor. But does a 17ah have much higher capacity than a 14ah battery that the RadRover has? Also I don't know the handlebar height on the BPM, I had put that into my list of questions for them but they didn't answer that one, so I may have to ask that one again. Finally they said the throttle speed is 25-30 If they understood me right which if 25 is the top speed then the speed is the same as the RadRover. I searched the forums about BPM Imports but couldn't find much, what do you guys think about BPM?

For what it's worth I went on my longest ride to date yesterday on my RR. It was 25 miles. Some was on bike trails and some on the road. There was some riding into the wind as well as hill climbing in PAS 4&5. As for me I weigh 205. At the end I had three bars showing so a little over 50% battery left. I'm looking forward to longer rides once it manages to warm up to 60 or more.I did research building one but the problem I was having was that the fat tire bikes I would use as the base were either too expensive for just the bike ($1000+) or they were 17'' frames or 18'' frames with low handlebars that would be too small for my height. Also even with the cheaper fat tire bikes it would end up costing me more than just the radrover. So I figure I will just make modifications to the radrover eventually like a larger 21ah battery, new controller + display, and a new motor and it will have everything I want to have.
For the most part I use PAS 2 or 3. I use 4 or 5 on hills. I also hardly ever use the first 2 gears preferring to boost the PAS rather than drop that low so I really could do better on distance if I wanted to but it really looks like I won't need to.What PAS level were you at to go that distance? I was hoping I could get at least 20 miles in level 2-3 so that is a good distance.
