    PEGALS! Pedals that suck less.

    In my quest to piss off people on the trails and parks the least amount possible I installed Pegals with the kaniwaba crank set. Not nearly as good as running pegs but a hell of a lot better then riding with pedals if you are trying to pass off your bike as a Class 3.

    Pretty smart design. Could they be installed without the kaniwaba setup? Sort of "fake pedals"? Not like pedaling does anything anyway.

      Kaniwaba has a fake pedal kit, without cranks and pedals for $136.

        Why would a Sur-Ron ever get impounded???

          I assume you meant. I have over $10,000.00 into my own personel Surron Light bee.?

          In the past 2 years I put aside $2500.00 just for wheels and better suspension, and soon I`ll be needing a better upgraded battery, upgraded controller, upgraded braking and a total rebuild of all the SRX-LB stock bearing and weak stock parts etc..
          This 2020 SRX-LB could be turning into a real money-pit. But if you wanna play you gotta pay.
          Or buy another full-size dirt bike for the same price. (Banshee. Drill, beast, KTM freeride)

          About 6 months ago I recall seeing a U-tube video of an SRX-LB running over a few people walking the trails and another video of a crash with a mountain biker.
          You never know where the police have video cameras and drones and most walkers have cell phones

            I don't know what the laws in PA are, but in CA where the OP resides, it is absolutely illegal to ride motorised vehicles (like a Sur-Ron) on pedestrian or MTB trails.

              Impounds out here in AZ can happen on:


              OHV vehicles without the OHV sticker in places that require the OHV sticker - an unplated sur-ron would likely qualify for impound

              Any vehicle on state trust land without a permit

              Any vehicle on reservation land without permission (different res have different ways of granting "permission" - some will sell "trespass permits" that are very restrictive)

              Motorized vehicles on forest land where they aren't [often specifically] allowed, different forests have different rules

              Motorized vehicles on BLM land where they are specifically not allowed

              Private land if you refuse to leave when told to


              Most of the time outside reservation land they'll just give you a stern warning (making sure you know they can impound) but if you mouth off or are a repeat offender you could easily see impound and if on reservation land you may never get it back and even if you do it will be a major pain

                Oh yeah - driving any vehicle (this even includes non-electric bicycles or even a row boat) under the influence of drugs or alcohol will get the vehicle impounded out here

                And no matter, pedals vs. pegs isn't likely to help any of those situations... maybe you could convince an uneducated LEO that it isn't an OHV but they don't seem to appreciate "getting educated"...

              And they might do this when they get it,...

                While in CA you can poo, smoke meth and camp in the parks next to the kids play grounds. But you better not under any circumstance ride an ebike through the wrong park or trail. So depending on the cop or most likely rangers mood that day they could impound your bike. One example I was riding the little kid razor mx650 bike with a wagon picking up trash in a park with the family and the ranger was torn on writing me a ticket and taking the bike. Even though it was pulling multiple bags of hobo trash out of the park.. I ended up having to walk it out of the park..

                  You are better off with any gasser bike for the price. Only reason to get a Sur-ron is because it kind of looks like a mountain bike and is quiet. Now with Pegals hopefully it will buy me a little more time until I deal with the law.

                  Here is one ride spot we enjoy.

                    It seems that you bought the Sur-Ron in order to side-step the trail-riding laws in CA that prohibit motorised vehicles; of course you're risking your bike getting impounded, the same would apply if you were to buy an MX bike in order to do wheelies on the street.

                    The Sur-Ron is meant for OHV trails.

                      Also for riding around camp grounds and beach trails. :)

                        Why don`t you just buy a legal class 1 pedal assist E-bike.
                        Good luck with your SRX-LB adventurous adventures in California.
