    Talking My EBike Hunting Rig

    Several of you have PM'd me about my eBike once I had everything put together.
    The boys at Cambie Cycles did a great job in ordering some parts that did not fit to making modifications so that everything is now functional!

    I first thought of a Fat tire bike for hunting when I saw the Rambo Bike, https://rambobikes.com/
    There were not too many dealers in BC and they were a bit pricey for what you got.

    The Ebike (ERanger 1000W) I ordered locally from a fellow who puts them together in Burnaby.
    http://www.erangerbikes.com/

    One charged battery 48V 14.8ah last up to 100KM give or take and I have four batteries.

    The trailer from Amazon, the Cycle Force trailer holds 140-200lbs depending on which website you go to.

    Scabbard ordered online from http://www.montanascabbards.com/
    The scabbard holds my smallest rifle (Rossi RH .44) to my largest shotgun. I still have several weeks of work before getting out in the bush but I'm ready!!

    Without a doubt, extremely jealous. The obvious question is, what did it all cost? Not what you told the wife what it cost either.....

    100kms eh? Not bad. So what is the battery life with yourself, gear, and a dead animal loaded up I wonder?

    Four batteries.....cost per battery?
    Cost of bike and specs?

    Good on Cambie Cycle for dealing with a hunter.
    Not too many friendlies down there.

    Never mind. Did some googling. I figured it wasn't a cheap set up. Only thing I couldn't find was the cost of batteries???

    I use a voltbike yukon:

    Went that route because it was slightly cheaper (got a slightly used one returned to the owner).
    But love the trailer and scabbard.

    I paid about $320 US per battery on AliBaba, considerably cheaper than buying local for about $800 CAN per battery. I recently put about 75kms in the city on one charge and the battery still had 5 bars of power and about 80% charge. Without the motor it would take quite an effort to peddle especially uphill, I wouldn't want to do it!

    I love it what a cool set up .... I have been kicking around an idea like this and really think as prices go down and the technology improves we will see more set ups like this !

    Do you consider this a motorized vehicle?

    I know where you're going, and I believe pedal assisted power bikes are accepted for use on road closures, but full electric bikes/vehicles are not.
