“best fat tire electric bike _fishing bicycle”

Even during spot-and-stalk hunting, where you’re mostly on the move, there’s a fair bit of sitting, waiting, and watching, which http://huntnbike.com get cold. So I always carried this massive down parka. Though it’s nearly as big as a sleeping bag and has a hood that fits over a bike helmet, the Lesja stuffs down small enough to fit in the pack. The outer is constructed of a proprietary two-layer fabric that’s wind- and waterproof yet soft and quiet—not crinkly or noisy like most shell fabrics. And the arm gaiters are a nice touch for keeping out the cold. Marketed at bow and rifle hunters, the bike — called the CB4 — has a rack, big tires, and a camouflage frame (RealTree Xtra pattern). A tagline from the brand is: “We make gear for people looking to hunt, fish and forage in remote places.” 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.  Although it is less (slightly) than a new ATV, it will be interesting to see if this idea catches on. I’m about 50/50 right now. The true test for me will be...

“electric bike +electric fat bike”

Here are two more advantages I see: One is the reduction in scent impact when travelling in my hunting area. My boots are not touching the ground, and I will be moving faster, leaving less signs of my intrusion that might alarm deer. Secondly, I ride a bike quite a bit on trails through wooded areas near my home, and I see that deer react much differently to a person on a bike than they do to a person on foot. They don’t see a person sitting on a pair of wheels as nearly the threat that they perceive a person walking. I’m not sure how much that will be an advantage, but spooking deer while scouting and travelling to and from a hunting location could be reduced. 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.  Pretty much any fat bike works for hunting, but the alloy CB4 is made for it, with a low bottom bracket for stability, a raked-out fork and front end that keep handling slow and predictable, and very small gearing (22 up front, 36 out...

“3 wheeled electric hunting scooter -how to build a motorbike”

Recently a story about a group of a subsistence hunters in Alaska caught my eye. They were getting into the backcountry around Denali National Park by mountain bike to hunt caribou, preferring the peace and quite and lack of fuel to other modes of transportation.  Our All Terrain electric fat bike is the ideal electric bike for hunting thanks to it’s whisper-quiet operation, 20+ mile range on throttle only and 28 mph top speed. The 4″ tires are ready to roll smoothly over all types of terrain from soft mud to deep snow. See how we’re quickly changing the game for hunters all across America with our affordable and high quality electric fat bike. I bought this bike with intended use on my hunting farms. I’ve ridden it now off road several times, and to say I’m blown away, is an understatement. This bike simply blew me away on all fronts. The motor is super strong and pulls me around great. I’m 6’2 210 so I’m not a small guy either. Like others have said, if this thing doesn’t make you smile the first time you ride it, you’re just not a happy person!!!! After three years of rough use, the vinyl covering has held up surprisingly well, marred only by a few predictable chips and scuffs, and the olive drab base coat continues to prevent any glare or reflections....

“best fat tire electric bike _hunting bicycle accessories”

The crossover goes the other way, too. I’ve been working in the outdoor industry for 20 years and am glad to see hunting companies like Kuiu and Sitka designing products that make being outside, hunting or not, better. It’s difficult to quantify how much a piece of gear improves an experience, but suffice it to say that I am trading out some of my old outdoor equipment for products I’ve discovered in the hunting realm. After using a bike for this upcoming season, I should have a lot better feel for how these questions will be answered. At this point, I can see all kinds of applications for them in scouting, checking game cameras, plus getting to and from a treestand. The advantage of being able to get around much more quickly could be huge. At the other end of the spectrum, a bike can be used purposely to lay down a scent trail. Try pouring your favorite estrous-doe urine into a small pump-spray bottle and spraying it onto a small spot on a tire. Every time that tire goes around it leaves an olfactory footprint just like a hot doe’s. When hunters think of all-terrain, off-road hunting vehicles, ATVs and UTVs are often the only options considered, but for many, two wheels may be better than four. Consider this: Dual sport motorcycles are easier to trailer to the hunting area than an...
