E-Bike Review: Pedego Trail Tracker

Orange County Register's Susan Carpenter takes Pedego's fat-tired Trail Tracker for electric-assist off road bike for a turn about an LA River tributary.

With its new Trail Tracker, Pedego has created the Abrams tank of electric bicycles. Big, burly and painted DayGlo yellow, it doesn't only subvert the image of power-assist bicycles as transportation for the lazy or infirm. It plows it into the ground.

Designed as a heavy-duty, zero-emission off-roader, with monstrous 26-inch knobbies and 4-inch treads, the Trail Tracker is so named for its dirt capabilities, but it's equally at home on sand, grass and pavement.

I spent a weekend with the latest e-bike from Irvine-based Pedego, bombing across the lawn of my local park and wheeling it along a Los Angeles River tributary, the embankment of which is a paved bicycle path that at night apparently doubles as a homeless encampment, considering all the broken pint bottles and discarded shoes.
