Does anyone use an e bike for hunting? How about scouting?
In the pinelands you can get more than a mile off paved roads with a fat tire bike.
I was thinking baiting, checking cameras ect.
I am getting old to carry stuff in a mile ( at night after work) and back out
yes the carts are about $300 . I would run my gear out ( since it would be quick and easy )
Then go back with the empty cart for my deer. I used a quietkat trike for a few years .
The quietkat did not like soft sand because of front wheel drive but was an excellent tool.
I sold it thinking i would get an atv again. I just think the e bike is welcome anywhere and atv's are not
If it works for you , why not do it ! Who cares what these guys think .....only kidding. Years ago I rode mountain bikes in every park around and raced all over the Tri State area
and I would see more deer riding than walking or scouting ! I think its a great idea , hell we cant use 4 wheelers in this state ,might as well use the bike.
diverrk, how many watts? do you pedal or use the throttle mostly? I wanted something powerful enough so no pedaling in light sand flat ground.
I would pedal when exploring or just bike riding but would not want to pedal with my climber on my back .
Is that mid drive ?
You can set the assist from 0-5. On the road I mostly keep it 0 and 1 to get some workout, but I vary it a lot, sometimes level 2 or 3. Or if I want to get somewhere fast I'll go level 5 and pedal, that gets me to roughly 25 mph. Depends on my pain level that day lol. I have hip and back issues, that's the main reason I bought it. Sometimes I use throttling and pedaling together. For instance, I'll be pedaling and I hit a steep incline, I'll use the throttle at the same time.
Mine is a Rad Rover, it's 750w rear drive. With the suspension seat, suspension seat post and front suspension its an unbelievably smooth ride
