If you want to research batteries, check out the "electric motor bicycle" forums. There are a lot of riders adding electric motors to bicycles. More people = more research being done.

I did a bit of research about the newer lead acid batteries when I was looking at a used electric car and looking at adding electric motors to bicycles. Being smart about use (don't run to zero charge) and recharging seems to be the key to keep batteries alive.

California allows electric powered bicycles up to a certain power level without a license, as long as the bicycle still has pedals. Other states may have similar laws.

Very sweet! Bought a PW 50 for my 2.5 yr old and he isn't into it yet but rips on his run bike. Am thinking this is the way to go. Nice job.

I'm a dealer for Oset in NY. Here is a picture of my 3 & 5 year-old sons on their bikes. Both of these guys went from Striders to Osets with no training wheels.

a couple more years

They keep adding 4" every 2-3 years. We're not far from full-size now boys. I for one cannot wait.

In fact, since I already ride a 20" bmx bike at the local jumptrack, I suspect this 20" size with a longer frame, and with some bigger batteries and stronger motor would move my larda$$ around just fine.

very very cool. And that 10 year old kid has some skillz, no?

So far all I've found is this. Age 7-13. Not full production yet, as far as I can tell.

If anyone is interested, I have a brand new 2011 12.5 still sealed in its original crate (my last leftover 2011) I'll sell it for $850.00 plus $65.00 shipping to the lower 48. PM me if interested. The bike is located in CNY.

We wish OSET made adult sized 60V bikes. My son is finally too big for his 12.5, so I guess we will sell it and look for a 16.

He can't wait!

I too would like to find out more about a battery that may add more power, and definitely more ride time, but it would have to be clean and safe.

This Bike is for sale now as my son has moved up to a 20" oset now, comes with two sets of batteries and the stock Hydraulic brakes off the 2013 20" bike

see my ad in the flea market

Thanks

$2300 OBO

the fork cost over $900 alone and is far superior to the stock options on osets bikes I even plan on upgrading the Fork on the new 20"

Fox vanilla coil over with rebound damping( had to re-weld shock mounts.
Magura hydraulic disc brakes.
And a few other little touches make this machine ride great off road and for trials

I just took my 6 year old on a 3 hour hike/trials ride up vail mtn steep single tracks ( carrying 3 25lbs batteries in my backpack... Go figure it went all the way on the ones it had in it) good workout for me

I only wish I had an electric trials bike I could ride everywhere.

This bike rides so much better than it did stock. I thought some of you guys would like to see what can be done to make these already great little bike even better!

Oset 16.0 24V kids trials bike for sale $800

this bike is not quite as souped up as the other one I have for sale

this is the 2008/9 model oset 16" with the 24v motor, takes 2 batteries and is by far the lightest of the 16" bikes because of this!
I upgraded the rerr shock to a Fox Float air shock which makes it much better for kids to ride - more responsive and really helps with traction when riding trials!
It has a 4 piston grimeca front hydraulic brake also.

Runs great but may need a new charger soon as the wire on this charger has been electrical taped twice! they are $14.00 I think from oset
