Supermoto Conversion Kits are Great

Motostrano has been suppling parts for and building supermoto bikes for a little over six years. Over the years, sourcing the parts, fitting the parts and doing the R&D for what works best for the road or the track has required constant feedback from customers and racers.

Supermoto, for better or worse, still lives in a realm very akin to custom bike building. It's not usually a matter of fabrication, as you have in the chopper world, but it does relate in as far as creating the perfect supermoto bike, keeping track of what parts fit what model bikes and knowing what parts work best with what bikes.

Due to the relative simplicity of the bikes themselves, most folks are able to do their conversion work at home as part of a DIY project.

Motostrano's supermoto conversion kits have evolved over the years to really represent the best long term value for your supermoto dollar. We look at things like year round availability of parts, of replacement parts, of part longevity, overall performance, cost and ease of installation. We try to supply our kits with all required parts and mounting hardware, but even in our kits, end users are still required to supply occasional bolts and shims required for a perfect conversion.

Our kits include wheels that have a longer life span than other less expensive wheels on the market. They are absolutely not the "cheapest out there". The Excel/Talon wheel combo is the defacto leader in Supermoto street or race. Yes, there are other less expensive options out there and we will flat out tell you that you are wasting your money with them. We think you're better off spending a few hundred dollars more for your parts than to have to simply buy whole new parts in short amount of time. Simple elementary school math can be used to calculate the better path there.

Motostrano's kits are usually priced as a bundled value that is less expensive than buying the kit parts separately. Further, we've found that our kit parts simply work well together. You'll see hundreds of bikes on the road or the track who've taken advantage of our kits. Many customers use our kit parts list as a starting point for a parts list that include many other parts.

Six years ago, riders and racers used to have to scrape, dig and modify all kinds of stuff to convert a bike to supermoto. At the time, there were few options out there for brakes, tires or wheels. The sport has evolved a lot in a short amount of time.

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
