Wooohoooo another fun day in the ebike world. Indeed. Met up in a parking lot next to a fenced in test ride area.
I was impressed by the number of trucks with e bike logos on their sides. Met up with haulincolin and tangentdave, then knewham stopped by and did a parking lot deal for some cells.
We test rode each others bikes. The tangent drive packs a punch and to me it was not noisy at all. An incredible bit of kit that Dave has built right there.
On haulins 10 foot tandem cargo machine I rode as passenger up front in the crumple zone. It goes pretty good as well.
As we wandered over to the official event 2 Bultaco e bikes were just arriving and i took one for a couple short laps in the parking lot. A nicely built and finished machine with a soft big travel suspension. Nice. When returning the bike one of the organizers told the bultaco guy that they should not let the bikes be ridden outside of the pen.
Not even in the gate yet and i was causing trouble. Registered and rode a couple cargo bikes and some pedelec mid drives. stayed away from the fat bikes, not sure why.
Really was a nice display of the state of the art in consumer grade e bikes.
If this circus comes to your town go check it out!
