That probably requires some modifications, and to get a battery system with enough energy (I want 600+ Wh) would required an extra purchase and special install. I just want a complete solution, and a warranty. But thanks for the input Russell.Russell wrote:Run the Trailz at 36V!
I was just messin' with ya. I pretty much figured if someone wants to shell out three big ones for an electric bike they wouldn't look twice at the lowly Trailz. At $300 delivered it's quite a deal though and I've read it really runs at 36V as long as you're prudent with the throttleJerome Daoust wrote:That probably requires some modifications, and to get a battery system with enough energy (I want 600+ Wh) would required an extra purchase and special install.

They replied saying they have the bikes in boxes and ready for shipment, but they do not offer test rides.Jerome Daoust wrote:TheSuperKids.com is saying it is already in stock, as of January 19.
Maybe just for the Medium size, with the Large available Later.
I sent them a message asking to confirm. They would be semi-local for me, so I could possibly get a test ride if they have it.
I don't have the space or the patience for that. Just want something ready-made, and a warranty.nomad85 wrote:why not just make your own bike?
