    My YouTube video describing the bike:

    The link below will take you to the quad as it left Utah Trikes.

    (Since I opted for the mid-drive motor, I do not have a reverse function as described in this video.)

    You will probably be able to see from my pics that I've made several changes to make it a better off-road/hunting rig.

    - I removed the front chain ring/pedals. I found that unless you were on relatively flat, hard surface terrain, and you are super fit, it was VERY difficult to pedal. And the assembly kept getting caught up in the weeds, causing numerous chain derails.

    - I also took off the stock Bafang chain ring and installed a Luna mighty mini 30-tooth which gives it much better climbing ability. You lose about 2 mpg (from 20 to 18) but for my terrain is was a good trade-off.

    - I moved the seat to a more upright position. Since I wasn't peddling that feel more comfortable and provides better visibility.

    - I removed one of the rear seat braces to get better utility from the cargo rack. (If I kept it I think I would also move the other one forward and just stiffen up the seat frame.)

    - I added a 52V (13ah) battery to the 48V (17ah). I also have an extra 52V that I haven’t mounted. On my terrain with lots of hills, mud and generally just tough going, I can get 20 miles with the two batteries. BTW, I weigh 185.

    - I also disconnected the brake cut-off switches. They're intended to be a safety feature e but aren't' helpful if you find yourself riding into your truck bed or stopping/starting on steep hills.

    - I have the original parts, spare tubes, tool box, programming cable, etc. as pictured.
    If you're not familiar with these I recommend you spend some time on Utah Trike's web site and also on Luna's
    A ton of info in those two sites.
    As you can see shipping is a non-starter. It cost me $450 to get it shipped to me. Plus, this thing is so unique I feel as though you've really got to try it out.
    Below is the build sheet that lays out the 3k of upgrades.
    Upgrade Highlights:
    - XL frame with 26x4 tires
    - NuVinci geared hub
    - Front suspension
    - Bafang BBSHD (1000W) Mid-Drive
    - Limited slip rear axle.
    A lot of words here but let me add one more thing....
    If you ride on relatively flat, hard surfaces, this is more than you need both from a money and size/weight perspective. But if you want to get off the beaten path, and have some mobility challenges this might be the ticket.
