    E bike recommendations?

    That regulation actually only applies to class 1 bikes. If you have a class 3 bike like a LOT of newer bikes this will not help as they are 28mph max speed so the regulation would not apply. I do agree that if some people would use good sense half of these regulations would never be needed...

    E bike recommendations?

    Never understood the idea of restricting bikes on a bike trail because they could go over ___ speed. That would be the same as saying no car that can go over the speed limit is allowed on a road - wait that would be 99.99% of everything made nowadays. Set a darn speed limit on the trail if that...

    UTV Tires

    I agree with Jeff - I would not worry about going up a tire size or two. We been doing it on tons of machines and of the ones I repair I have not noticed any change in bearing wear - most wear we see is from mud or extreme use. Most issues I deal with is guys crashing into stuff......

    UTV Tires

    On my sport side by side I run Carnivores - very tough tire, decent on the asphalt and great in the woods on a variety of WV trails from rock to mud. On my Mule Pro (bigger utility machine) I have Pitfall growlers. Excellent in the woods and seem like they may last a LONG time. 1200 miles so...

    Just saw this on Facebook - you dont need a $200 Ebike when you can get this baby that does "50-60 mph" (with what looks like no front brakes) for a mere $200. Good lord, someone is going to die on that thing.

    Seats are tricky, finding one that you like is a very personal thing and proper adjustment is vital. Play around with the forward/back position, tilt, etc and see if that helps. If it doesnt, start looking as there are about 1000 different seats out there - one for every bum as they say....

    E bike recommendations?

    I will offer a little advice. Buy a good bike, one that fits you, and one you like. We were in the same boat as you a year ago and ended up buying two Specialized E-Bikes and spent way more than we planned (about 7k total). Test rode a ton of different makes and models and when we tried the...

    L vs M series Kubotas?

    I went from an L to a MX. The MX is a nice step up and a good deal heavier duty for not a whole lot more money.
