He would be so cool to work for ;)

I just received my 2nd Nucular 24F so the kid's bike will be updated before spring. Not so much for crazy power but to be able to use it w/ the SurRon battery. SurRon is 60V vs 48V so it won't work in the kid's X160 w/ stock controller. The SR batt is 2x the Wh of the X160 batt too! So he should be able to ride at somewhere like Mountain Ridge all day being able to swap the batts.

Anyone have experience riding there Sur Ron, Talaria, etc. on local mountain bike trails like Patapsco? Riding mountain bike trails is the only way I can justify buying an ebike right now. But I don't want to fight a cry baby mountain biker screaming "you're ruining our trails". Last I checked, only Level 1 ebikes can ride Patapsco.

I believe that's true and I've also heard of MB trails being closed even to pedal assist bikes. I've really enjoyed mine for doing slow-ride kind of practice around close to home. As an experiment, I've even taken it places like Budds Creek and ridden the big track on it. I didn't impress anyone with my speed but the bike handled it just fine. Having all that torque all the time makes it a bike for any terrain.

I think on the more well traveled trails like Patapsco you'll get yelled at. I could probably ride the the trail local to me (Fairland) and get away with it if I wasn't being a butt head as when I'm riding a mtb there, rarely run into other riders that aren't in my group.

Probably some other “gray” areas you might be able to play/practice in near your house.

Id stay away from popular mtb spots.

smdub, I'm in Laurel. I don't have an ebike yet to ride Fairland, but would be willing to meet up to ride some dirt. Do you ride any of the dirt trails across from Fairland?
