“off road tricycle all terrain electric bike”

Felt founder Jim Felt, an avid bow hunter, wanted to design a rig that could shlep gear far into the backcountry for multi-day hunting trips. His answer: the concept Bosch-powered Outfitter than can haul a trailer with up to 100 pounds of equipment. The trailer we saw at the show was a modified model from B.O.B., but Felt is apparently working on a design of its own for 2015. The inspiration for the Defiant came from company founder Kevin Spreng’s frustration at the lack of appropriate winter bikes. An attorney and committed bike commuter from the Twin Cities, Kevin wanted a bike that he could ride to work and for fun year round, through the harshest Minnesota winters. There simply wasn’t anything on the market capable of getting him through the snow and slush that made riding a challenge for as many as 6 months a year in Minnesota.

While the Outfitter was intended for hunters, we think it will suit anyone who wants to bring lots of gear into the woods under their own power—with some help from that Bosch eDrive. Several photographers remarked that the set-up is ideal for lugging professional camera equipment in for a shoot, says Felt Sales Manger IanMcCabe. And you can always carry beer. One hundred pounds of beer.  I love the CB4 and what it means for future tools that allow me to easily hunt from a bike. I hope that means more innovative scabbards, gun racks, frame bags, panniers and trailers designed for hunting. But my rationale for going cheap was that I knew from the onset of this project that my bike would be used for one purpose only: hunting. General abuse — crossing creeks and being tossed over barbed-wire fences, hidden in brushpiles and left outside for months at a time — was going to be the rule for this bike; it wouldn’t hang by hooks in the garage for very long. The “Outfitter” is an electric assist, fully accessorized, super cool hunting and fishing rig. It uses the same dependable Bosch e-bike system that Felt has been using on its other electric assist bikes but has a beefed up aluminum frame, high end components, camouflage paint and of course, fat tires to get you through the snow and muck. All the cables are stored in...

CB4 is equipped with full range gearing, all-condition disc brakes and a wide handlebar for control even while loaded. The frame has attachment points for a rear rack and water or fuel bottle cages. The fork has additional attachment points to expand carrying capacity. We are also proud to say that the Cogburn CB4 is designed and assembled in the USA. It wasn’t long before I was using my bike for other hunting chores, like hanging tree stands. Of course, you’re not going to carry a ladder stand through the woods on a bike, but lock-on type stands and even some climbers are easy to strap to the rack. By using the front basket to carry a bag of screw-in tree steps, a safety harness and a haul line, and tasking the rear rack to carry the stand, hauling my entire set-up to even remote parts of my hunting property was a simple affair. At the same bike shop I also found a cargo rack that mounted over the rear tire. Next came a homemade bow rack consisting of a piece of aluminum tubing, purchased at a hardware store and a set of bow/gun holders designed to mount on an ATV rack or handlebars. To make the bow rack I attached the piece of aluminum tubing crossways at the farthest rearward portion of the cargo rack, using nuts and...

The meld of biking and hunting is interesting to us and perhaps timely. Ostensibly, the Cogburn bike is an alternative to an ATV. There’s a movement of a younger demographic of hunters that may find a non-motorized option appealing. The Defiant Bicycles Big Easy is a first of its kind: a hand-crafted, electric FAT bike that’s Made in the USA. The Defiant is the culmination of over two years of development and is the perfect choice for utility and recreation in virtually any setting.

“hunt bike wheels -all terrain electric bikes”

Before I started bowhunting, I had no idea of the joy that hunting unpressured deer brings. Only one other archer was in my hunting club, and those first few weeks before gun season started were truly wonderful. I suggest you check with the US Forest Service directly in there Dickinson/Bismarck offices to get it straight from their mouth, and with NDG&F for state managed lands. Although they are considered a “bicycle”, I bet that is regarding motor vehicle registration purposes. They would still be illegal on paved trails made for non-motorized vehicles (I was just at a meeting this morning and the Federal Highway Administration rep clarified that one…”motorized” wheelchairs are allowed on non-motorized trails for people that need mobility assistance under new US Dept of Justice rulings)… QuietKat® chose Zoom to make the disc brakes for their FatKat. Disc brakes were used for many reasons. The greatest reason is that disc brakes are unaffected by weather. It doesn’t matter if it’s raining, snowing, or hailing, they’ll function exactly the same as if it’s 95º and sunny. This is incredibly important if you’re riding a bike through the puddle laden streets on the way to the store or crossing the stream on the way to your treestand. The safety of the bike would be destroyed if you couldn’t stop. I ordered it through channelcatoutdoors.com, my hunting partner got one...
