It's here! After receiving one of the very first Storm Sondors Fat Bikes, I decided to give it a go both on and off road. For anyone not familiar with the bike, it's one of the most successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaigns - ever. With an initial goal of just $75,000, over 5 million was raised. There was some controversy over whether or not the bike would deliver with the promised specs at the price. Let me tell you this - It delivered.
The first test was a steep and long uphill. Over 700 feet of climbing in less than 4 miles. It did well, but required some pedaling to keep things moving at a decent pace. It's a single speed bike and this pushed it more than I think it was intended for. The battery was only slightly warm after the climb, and used approximately 3.5AH based on the recharge. Next was a downhill test - here comes the fun! Watch the video below for a ride that includes a steep on road down hill, and some off road action.
