Bike Island Snake Eyes

Didn't want to hijack the Salty Dog thread again, so here's my cruiser, procured from Bike Island.

. Initially, an e-bike, but transformed to a three-speed "MTB" by adding a 26 X 2.4 rear tire and a 29 X 2.1 front. Tried it out in the dirt yesterday and had an enjoyable day.

Lots to like about your new ride. Looks like a lot of fun to ride, too.

Looks like the best use ever for an E-bike! Smiles, MH

Thanks for the kind comments. If anyone is interested, I've made several purchases from Bikes Direct and Bike Island and they came through perfectly every time both in time of delivery, packaging and quality/price ratio of merchandise.

I'm happy with the wheelsets I've purchased from them I keep lusting after one of their SS framesets. Justifying another n+1+1+1+1.......to the Secretary of War gets a little more difficult each time.

Maybe check Bike Island for a frame, then build it up.
