WHAT, another KE rider in St. Louis area? I haven't taken mine on any kind of trip like that but I just a surgery that will limit me to street/gravel and the little KE is right on for that. Here's one ride from out in Warren Co on some gravel. I've got mine geared up a little so 50 is no problem, unless hills or headwind. Next semi-warm day, I'm taking a little road trip on it like yours, Maybe half of yours. Fun bike.
