Rode an Levo around a couple of weeks ago. If you like the feeling of pedalling downhill all the time, ebikes are for you. If you are not at all into any of the fitness aspects of MTB, ebikes are for you. For me personally, spending minimum $6K for either of those characteristics is out of the question.

Ridden and Rated - 5 Trail Bikes
Love how the cheapest and most aluminum bike gets a shout out at the end..... Wish more people would look into ride quality that feels good to them rather than buying a $8000 - $10K wonder bike cause their line of credit allows them too

The Coastal Crew: Skeptical - Video
houghts on the idea of e-bikes: The Levo comes stock with a Revalation fork and NX group and chimes in at $6200 retail CAD. Unless this is your only bike, not too many people are going to be considering adding this as a second bike. With the added weight, there will need to be a burlier version of this (w/Pike or Lyrik, better drive train, dropper, carbon version obvs). So a version for someone who rides hard will clock minimum 10K. This pushes it out of reach for most. Part of the reason bikes have gotten so much better is because they are lighter and stiffer then they have ever been to push over terrain. The weight of e-bikes sets that scale back about 10 years. Assuming these are 45? lbs, they can't handle as well on tech downs. All fine on the access part of things, wanting to ride longer and farther, but the idea of allowing any kind of a motorized assist will just allow other aspects of motors (throttle) to slowly creep in down the line. To me, it's just another way to push a 10K price point. There's enough bikes like that. Bikes need to get cheaper if companies want to sell more. Giant produces great entry level bikes at around $3K or less (look at the 2017 Trance 2, outstanding bike for the price). That will get way more people into the sport then trying to get as much money out of a bike purchase as possible.

Looking to buy an older / retro Kona Humu or Paddy Wagon. Would need a 56cm frame in the Major One or Paddy Wagon. 20" in the Humu, but could deal with a 18". Ideally a frameset to do a custom build or would possibly consider a complete. Send some pics!
