|First Ride on ERT|
So I hate the term snow bike, I have only rode mine in the snow 3 times and it's not a snow bike. This bike works great on pavement, gravel, sand, underwater, grass, mud, etc. It's a handicap for sure on any surface other than deep snow, sand, and thin mud. The only really bad area I've found for it is peanut butter mud the bike picks up a lot of it and get so heavy it's impossible to carry. I however like being able to go out for a casual pace ride and get an excellent workout. 40 miles will leave you feeling like you did 5 set of leg weights. It's also nice to ride with kids you get some workout and aren't sprinting off . Plus nothing cooler than passing someone on a tri bike with 4" tires...zone 5 anyone
Tires: So the main thing on these bike are the tires. Ya big. Okay that aside very thick and heavy tires I also added slime after an epic 6 tire changes on one ride (locust tree). I'm going to wear out the stock tires and get a set of husker du's.
So all I can say is if you don't want to buy one DON'T ride one....they are like bike crack addictive!
Longest Pugsley Ride so far : 92 miles.... feels like 160.
