Unless your daddy is rich and has a house right on the beach, in which case you drove the hummer. E surf bike is perfect. A little help for that uphill ride after a tiring session in the water.
Thats the idea. I am just far enough from the water for it to be a hassle to ride home under my own power. Sometimes I would rather save my energy for surfing.
There are some beach communities that are relatively flat. Pacific Beach in SD is a beach cruisers dream town full of beach and bar riders.
This bike is actually a reincarnation of my first ebike build. I had the 36v10ah Ping in the blue crate.
I actually downgraded the batteries to lead just to make it less attractive/less to loose in a worse case scenario. Just when you thought lead was dead??
