Looked at the link and got a message saying that RiverTrailGear has closed its business.

Mike, how does the rack system mount to our bike? Would it be possible to see a photo?

Thanks,

Bruce

Is this the same rack? Yes I ride wearing waders.

Wow Ard,

That second picture looks a little chancy. That would be a busted rod if I tried it.

MikeLove, I see you still call Piscator, Darknight. I still have a problem when I want to send a PM to Piscator. I have to go to the Portal Page to look up his name. Why can't you tie the tube along your cross bar with the end sticking out the front or the back according to your load?

Frank,

Take another look, the tubes are held vertically on the front forks in the rack. The rod in the second picture is simply propped on my trunk bag while I took the picture. I was fishing when I took the pictures. Does that look safer, I mean the tube on the fork?

Hi Ard,

My mistake. I thought you were carrying your rod like that. I think the fork tube is a good idea.

Mike,

Pictures please, I still like to use my gears but I'm not getting younger here either.

Click the image to open in full size. If this pic comes through it will show the front hub motor , 36 volt battery pack on rear and controller hung from the cross bar.. throttle is on the right side not visible but to the right of the brake.. cost 400 bucks on line.. I bought it at 607-587-8835 Lyle Barron in NY.

Yatahey: I think 6'6" is about right for our Alaskan friend.

Mike Love: 2 questions-

Is that battery/motor set-up powerful enough to get you back up out of the park on the windy road to the south or that long haul up to the dam on the other end?

And,

Can we PLEASE see a picture of your jolly self flying by at 20 mph on a mountain bike while wearing waders?
