This was fun. A bit different to a regular MTB ride, on a beach in Dubai, but fun nonetheless! I was in Dubai and wanted to get a ride in. In the 40 degree heat I knew that I needed some electric power to stop me passing out.

The guys at Ebikes UAE sorted out a selection of bikes to ride. If you're ever in the area give them a shout!

Cheers,
Rob.

By the way, these bikes really are electric motor bikes, will certainly not be for everyone.

Being a motorbiker these thing scare the sh!t out of me in terms of using MTB componentry at those speeds. Are the tyres/brakes/chain even rated/capable etc etc. I am not a hater of them, and ambivalent to them, but the thought of that much power going though a bicycle chain/drivetrain is scary given what my normal EMTB is capable of doing to those components!

There hub drive so the chain and pedal system only see human power, the brake calipers and rotors are far bigger then that on a pedal assist style ebike. Friend of mine has one very similar to the B52, i actually didn’t care for it at all. Felt more like a motorcycle that was way under powered. The Alta motorcycle was way more impressive.
I find the 50lb and under assist to be the only thing that feels like a mountain bike and keeps the playfulness of a mtb.
