    Great review, covered most things. Sounds like a pretty useless bike. All the trails around here only allow non-motorized traffic anyway.

    Useless for you maybe but not for everybody, not everybody lives by you with the non- electric bike rules trails, I'll even go out on a limb & say most people dont ride those trails.

    While the Pedego is a ready to ride unit if someone had some skills this bike with a little work would be a whole lot cheaper. http://gearjunkie.com/walmart-fat-bike

    Yes I agree about the trails but the bike sounds very underpowered for almost everything unless maybe it is geared REALLY low. I am not saying electric bikes with enough power wouldn't be useful especially for someone too weak (for whatever reason) to get to some beautiful areas, I was just commenting on the review of this bike.

    All the off-road trails and single tracks around here are non-motorized as well. Most high quality off-road MTB areas are that way for an educated reason.

    Fat Tire ebike is a neat novelty but really doesn't make much sense at all..especially for China Brand in that price range.

    Perhaps their target market is carnival workers lookin to slip and slide around fairgrounds through cow manure? Of course, that is until the bike hits one of those spritzer bottles that clowns chase each other around with. Then it's two out of true fat wheels and busted battery rack. In the end, not even the bearded lady will want anything to do with it.

    The Bearded Fred: Only known cyclist left in the world to be 100% natural and completely free from performance enhancing drugs. Also known for self reliance, amazing talent for satisfying the women and great guitar riffs. Honestly, a full racing kit is absolutely the most ridiculous looking stuff you can wear short of a clown suit."

    Well, here's my opinion;
    Its underpowered, it costs too much, its ugly and the batt pack is too weak. Besides that, its great!!!!!

    Rather have a surly fat bike and pick out my own pieces. I can make it better and faster that way.
    Still nice to see more options though, albeit expensive...

    I talked to a dealer this week. He says they are flying out the door and he can't keep them is stock. Evidently someone is buying them.
