    So I'd have to ride it approx. every 45 days or so for it to work a few years from now? Or could it lie dormant and be recharged later?

    Ideally if you use bike daily you should charge daily
    In this case if you charge within 60 days you should be fine
    Anything more than that efficiency will start dropping. Battery life depends a lot on other things like temperature, conditions etc.

    So regular use is recommended.

    Well my Harley was a little more than that, but yea, that's kinda what I thought when I saw the price tag. This had no motor, but I think carbon frame and the big fat tires, fatter than the back tire on my Banana bike about 45 years ago. Dang i miss that bike and the good time I had on it. Simple times.

    I already ride my mountain bike now getting back into shape. Was only interested in this as a SHTF scenario. Just like all my other supplies, buy and store for a rainy day. Food gets rotated but riding and using this bike will wear it out over time I figure. Do you have any longevity info on it?

    Check out the latest review we got

    Maiden voyage
    I took this beast of a bike out after a quick and simple assembly session. I would say I am at the end of the spectrum when it comes to height/inseam. i'm 5' 6" with a 29" in seam and there is a narrow margin for error on this bad boy. We had a light dusting of snow on my first run and I scooted around my acre yard at a good pace. It takes me a while to get used to a bike after being off of one for many months and this was no different. I managed to spill it once and had a good laugh at myself. I am looking forward to some more time on it and I need to fine tune the shifting a bit but that is not uncommon on a regular bike. It is robustly made and looks like a beast. I noted there were a few scratches here and there while unpacking it but no bother. I look forward to getting some more time on it soon. - John P
