Rocky Mountain Altitude Powerplay 70 - eMTB Review
@Rubberelli: some people think their kids are the best too. If someone's new bike is perfect, how could the next one be even more perfect? Of course they'd say so, after having spent 3-5k on it! Th fact is, there are poorly designed bikes! The fact is some bikes are a lot more durable than others. Some ride way better than others. There was a thread with broken Kona frames some time ago. An older version of the Enduro had weak chainstays, Google it. Plenty of them broken. Some cars are made better quality than others. Some suck at the crash tests. Cars have been around for some time, and have plenty of smart engineers working on them. A friend of mine works on wind turbines. There's this brand that has shitty gearbox design that breaks every couple of months. Costs more to maintain then purchase over a few years. I happen to be a skier. I test more skis than bikes. Some skies are shit! Even if they are a top model from a reputable brand. They don't suck on their own, they are skiable, they suck compared to other brand's top models. Which means there are better designs, material and manufacturing processes. Why should bikes be an exception? I like my current bike, but it's flawed. It developed play because of stupidly designed rocker link. I did demo bikes I didn't like. GT Force for example and I had high hopes for it.

@Extremmist: Eh, I also have a relaxed holiday plan. But that's not the norm. And a lot of the time it's not as simple as you make it seem - go find a nice job and work from the chairlift. Are the rest of your friends and family also working only 4 days a week at big international corporations? No need to answer. Anyway, that's a discussion for another e-bike review.

I read the whole thing, there's plenty of criticism that seemed fair. Way more than usually found in normal bike reviews. Would be great to raise the level of scrutiny for 8000€ bikes!

Luckily they are mostly old people going for a pint and cake at the hut. The young guys at the trail/bike parks however are a weird bunch!
