    I say fake news until proven otherwise. No mention or listing for it on their website while the other new bikes are on there.

    I’m not as anti ebike as lost on here but I can’t imagine how ANYBODY could design and/or approve a bike that looks so hideous.

    The rest of the industry is moving towards streamlining, and making the motor harder to spot. It's like the Ibis designers said, "We have to be different, so let's make the motor area a giant blob of motor and moving parts. Nobody else is doing that!"

    That rear triangle/swing arm thing reminds me of another ugly bike from not too long ago.

    Yes!

    I saw one of those in the wild not too long ago. It looks worse up close. :laugh:

    So I assume your ebike is better looking than that one!

    Looks like we are down to Guerilla Gravity and Revel. And Banshee. Don't forget Banshee! And Knolly. Knot yet anyway...

    I do not own an e-bike. I have also never ridden an e-bike...



















    With the battery inserted. :laugh:

    I read an interview with one of the main guys from GG a couple months ago, and the e-bike question came up. He said something to the effect of them being completely open to producing an e-bike, and they're down with anything that makes mountain biking more fun. I took that to mean they're actively developing an ebike that they can't bring to market quickly enough.

    Agree on the streamlining. Pivot is looking good and one version is 36.25 lb

    I learned a new word yesterday on the ride with @redwoods ... "Slacklining."

    From a tree at Eaton Saddle to a tree on Mount Markham. :confused:

    I’ve seen that off Taft Point in Yosemite. The guy told me they use a drone to fly one end of a much smaller thin line across and then pull the slackline up. Crazy to watch as these guys had 1200 feet below them.

    I took this one last year, but it better shows the area they are traversing... I have no idea how far the fall would be. 500 feet at the center? More?

    Except the flaw of that argument is ebiking is not mountain biking, it’s mopeding.

    That garish monstrosity showed up in my Instagram feed this morning... In a pose that highlights the bottom bracket, motor, and rear suspension. Their talented designers must have all quit en masse, and left the design to the interns.

    And it comes in "Forest Service Green", even though it's not legal in a single forest in Southern California. If that's not an overt "F- You" to the rules and laws of the land, I'll eat my hat.
