    What's in your garage.......

    Well, I have put all of the "farkle" that I have planned for putt-putt done, with the exception of repainting the XT225 tank soooooooooo, mrs putt-putt and I decided to check out the electric bikes..... We purchased a couple to take with us in the boat or when we take the camper out......(they were purchased last fall on sale and stored over winter)

    I know this is a TW200 forum but I wanted to share this with you guys.......in 2 words.........HOLY CRAP, these things go!

    Been toying with the idea of an electric bike.

    Please tell us how you like them when you get some miles on them.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I have an X-Treme X-Cursion Electric Mountain bike and I love it!

    Its heavy by most standards, about 53 pounds. It folds in half for easier travel and has a 24 volt Li4po battery.

    It has a twist throttle but does not have a true pedal assist. When on, the pedal assist is on full throttle. For this reason, I never use the pedal assist and rarely use the electric power at all but its sure nice to have it if its wanted or needed.

    The really great thing about this one is the price. It retails for about $800 but can be found for around $650!

    Better than $3000!

    Pretty cool and not too bad of price. That TW is too clean.

    Electric bikes are cheating!! I know that for a fact after trying to catch one with my carbon Sasso and not knowing the guy was on the juice.

    I was going up a steep hill in town with the Triumph last year when someone on an ELECTRIC dirt bike blew past me like I was standing still.

    I bought the ebikes initially to bring with us on the boat when we did the west side of the island, so we could explore the tiny native villages........... I subsequently sold the boat and bought a Bigfoot camper so they will still come in handy. The ones we purchased fold up, which is a big bonus....

    These fat tire e-bikes go like hell and are a blast to ride but they will never replace putt-putt!

    I just sold this project last weekend and am now interested in either building or buying an e-bike.
