E-Bikes


Recommended Posts

Looking to get an e-bike next year to help me get back to spots in pa Stateland and the stateland I hunt here.  Anyone have suggestions. 

Also looking at it to help get deer back from deep areas I hunt. Would be nice to be able to grab the bike and a jet sled ride to the deer toss it on the sled and pull it back with the bike. Even if I have to walk along side the bike to get it back to the car. 
 

i follow a couple on YouTube called KEO vlogs out of western ny and they have reviews on a couple different ones.  That’s where I found that green leopard one.

I've been looking also.. Adventure 2 is on my short list because of the local dealership support, and torque sensor. Others are tempting, but the dealer support has me shy of online only purchases. 

What have you found in your search that fits?

There’s one called the HAOQI Green Leopard Pro Fat Tire Electric Bike.   Price is decent at $1200 seems to have what I want just not sure how they handle pulling. 
 

just starting to look around. My local gun shop sells some also so I’m going to look there as well.

All the bikes that are made for hunters are so expensive compared to other manufacturers.  Most have the same components, but some of the higher end hunting bikes have motors on both wheels.  Your talking 3-4k and up. 

My biggest fear with online only is repairs.  Some of the bike shops I've spoken to will not work on E bikes they don't sell.

Yea I saw that, put hunting in the adds and jump the price a couple k.  I’ll have to see if I can find some local and take a look at them.   
 

i think for how much I would use them the single motor would do the job for me.

Same here, single motor would be fine. 

The biggest difference I'm seeing is hub motors VS mid drive motors and cadence or torque sensor assist. 

Most bikes under 2k have hub drive motors and cadence sensors.  The Adventon adventure 2 has a torque sensor which in my research is much smoother and normally found on more expensive bikes.

Actually,this just occurred to me. I have a trailer for my bike and put my doggies in there sometimes. Not a bad pull at all. I gotta look up the brand,my wife found a great deal on it. It mounts to the hub of the rear wheel. It may be a bit tight for a deer but could be done. That would be the way to go. You could haul your stuff in on the trailer too.

Theres a bunch of trailers made for E bikes.  Lots of different designs and mounting options.

My dad has a Himiway for riding around town. Year 3,  I believe and no problems. Although he did get a flat tire once and he said it was a big job pushing it to a truck and loading it due to the heavy weight. 

Most have a walking mode. Some hills might be too steep or slick so pushing a 75lb bike up a hill would suck. 

Have your dad look into it. Might come in handy if he has another flat.
