 It's cool to see riders and trails in one of the big manufacturing countries in Asia, instead of the view we often get of just business people at Interbike or no faces at all. I would guess there have been more stories home-paged on PB of N. American or western European hippies on a MTB vision quest in Asia than there have been of people who live and work and ride in those countries. Getting this fuller picture is a nice addition

 Why is he pushing an E-bike up the hill? Doesn't that defeat the purpose?

 This shot was included to give potential buyers an idea of the battery life (2 minutes, 8 seconds).

 Looks like a steep unridable section. The way the bike wheelied out gives you an idea of how powerful the hiker mode feature is on this bike. Most non e bikers don't understand the benifit of the hiker mode. You can basically use the motor to allow the bike to pull you up steep terrain on a fraction of the time it would take to hike a bike up on an old timey non e bike. Just another thing that highlights the technological superiority of e bikes over non e bikes, which according to most trends might be facing extinction.

 Demonstrating the walk mode because even some things are too steep for an ebike.

 @DoubleCrownAddict: do they make superior double crown ebikes?

 @DoubleCrownAddict: walk mode ain't that powerful. a lot times it cuts out and pushes you backwards. still a great feature to have for a 55lb bike on the steeps.

 @DoubleCrownAddict: Flying a helicopter on Mars is "technological superiority". Putting a battery + motor on a bike is not.

 So, the question is; do people buy this, or the Marin Alpine trail e2

 Marin if you ordered within 36hrs of release otherwise you’ll wait until 2022 or take the polygon... which is probably already sold out lol?
