While not dramatically different than the old Wild, it looks surprisingly clean.

They really cleaned up the way the rear brake cable and shift cable would go from the front triangle into the back triangle.

Not pumped about the cables in the headset, looks like you’re basically stuck using Orbea’s OEM stem and it almost looks like you can’t add stem spacers. So that could be a negative.

I’m kind of happy they went with a fixed battery, I’ve heard the locking mechanism adds almost 1.5lbs of unneeded weight, and the frame will be stronger too.

My carbon frame on my bike already felt pretty light so it’s pretty crazy they’ve reduced the frame weight by 900grams.

I doubt it's so proprietary that you can't use a different stem. Like Scott, it's probable that the spacers look cleanest with the stock stem, but you can remove the stem and spacers and just use regular ones if you want. It just won't look as clean.

I think one of those isn't an ebike. Interesting looking at them one after the other. The ebike really is alot less attractive. Not bad for what it is, but the acoustic bike looks a zillion times better

Hahaha

So engrossed, completely overlooked that!

I knew I’d seen it before(!), even checked my ebike folder ..posted it in the enduro thread a while back. Dumbass

It’s most definitely Friday


Aaaand your right, no comparison at all. Be good to see all the analogue bikes and their digital (those manufacturers that possess both obviously) counterparts together

Those rim decals look ace.

New Orbea Rise looks super sweet. Headset cable routing though.

Hard to beat the clean lines on the new Lumen from Scott.

Look at the clown bar/stem combo.

That doesn't bother me. I think Scott does a good job of integrating their handlebar and stem. I would opt for the higher rise Hixon setup but still, pretty clean.

Leaves you no option to change stem length or bar hight. For that reason I'm out .
