New to e-bikes from San Antonio (area) - I’m hooked!


New Member
I bought my e-bike on Saturday and I’m Hooked. So is my family. I have 3 kids and they all love it.

I have 2 kids that can fit in the bike seat, so I do about 5 miles with each of them, then my eldest daughter takes it around the neighborhood.

My upgrades include;
shock absorbing seat and handlebars. I did the handlebars versus the front shock.
kids seat
phone holder
cub holder
front light
Large battery

We have put about 50 miles on the bike in 2 days, and I don‘t see us slowing down much.

I decided on the Pedego element because I already own a Trek Fuel dual suspension mountain bike (non-electric) and I didn’t want another mountain bike. I also like the element as my kids can use it, or will grow into it soon.

The worst part of this purchase, is I’m now looking at a Mercedes Benz Sprinter to modify for Bike trips. I’m leaning towards the long wheel base model Or the smaller one in 4x4.

Welcome to the community! Glad to hear you are enjoying your E-Bikes! On a side note, I'd recommend doing some research on the different model years of the Sprinter for their 'Limp Mode' issue. It's an expensive fix if it happens. I love Sprinters, but would hate to see that happen to anyone :)
