For some time, I’ve been thinking about adding an alternate means of getting around. Something that would let me check out a road, in order to be sure it would handle my rig Tardis, or simply to explore the area around my camp. For a while I thought that would be a small motorcycle or a scooter. But, I wasn’t real keen on that idea.
After much research, and advice from a fellow RVer, I decided to get the pictured bicycle. It’s a black Gravity Bulls Eye Monster Fat Bike with 26x4inch tires, 8 speed gears, and manual disc brakes. I have since added a Thudbuster ST seat suspension post to soften those trail bumps.
Most of my time is spent where there are plenty of hills. So, future plans may include adding a peddle assist electric mid-drive motor to help with hill climbing. It would also provide greater range, as these old legs are not getting any stronger.
The hitch mount bike rack includes a hitch lock, and a lock to secure the bike to the rack. It can tilt down for easy loading of the bike, and also folds up when not in use.
The fat bike has provided another exercise option. Fat tires provide a softer ride, and can handle sand and snow better than narrower ones. Riding has included a mix of paved streets, gravel roads, and dirt trails. Having the option to take the bike, rather than the rig, has been nice. I’m liking it!
