Ebike and Ebike?
Ebike and Road/Gravel
Ebike and Mtb?

Let's see the two bikes your riding the most right now. How do they fit your riding lifestyle? How do they complement each other?

Both bases covered here

Conversions obviously and although they can overlap on road/light single track going to the extreme in either case will decide which to ride.

A nice feature is that the batteries I use are swappable to either format.

Main ride is a Trek Farley Ex 8. Absolutely love it! So versatile between 27.5 x 3.8" and/or 29 x 3.0". I have same cassette and brake rotors between the wheel sets so swapping is super easy.

New addition to the overall stable. 2019 Bulls Monster E-FS. Bought it so son and wife can keep up, but is also my quick and dirty ride bike. If I do trailwork then ride it is almost a given I'll grab the e-bike as of late:

They look like happy guys! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

How's the handling with the big guy up front?
Hope he's well behaved when you're moving.
Handling is great! Handling is only affected when the basket is connected to the handlebar and/or the front wheels. But when it's connected to the frame (doesn't turn with the wheels), it doesn't affect handling much. It's quite stable.

After a couple of weeks of training, they learned to stay and not jump out. But I still hold their leash in one hand so I can give them a quick yank when they fixate on another dog or skateboarder.

Venice beach is the ultimate testing grounds for distraction... :insert tree emoji:
