Tech Week 2023: Pole's New Vikkelä Ditches the Motor, Keeps the 190mm of Travel
@DavidGuerra: Vikkelä's frame weight is the same as carbon fibre Specialized Enduro with more travel. So is that heavy?

@schlockinz: I believe you explained what I meant by "opportunistic": When a company drafts other companies' technology and offers a similar product at a lower price. I'm not saying there's nothing wrong with that. It's a business form; for example, YT has done well with a similar strategy. However, I would choose my bike based on passion and originality.

Thanks dude! We were riding together with Matti a few weeks back. He is helping us on testing bikes.

Being in Seb is reviewing the Voima, so I believe he will also cover the BB height. I want to talk more about frame stiffness and all its aspects. I believe that for most riders, the bicycle frame should be more flexible. We have made our frames stiffer for our pro racers for a while now. Later, we can offer the racing setup to our customers as well.

@shaheeb: Good list! Commencal shares similar values with Pole, and I don't think Commencal is a corpo brand. The original entrepreneur (Max) is still in the house (I think). I have bought my children's bikes from Commencal for the reasons mentioned earlier. Now the older one is riding XS Pole Taival. I like Nukeproof but it's owned by CRC, and they make carbon bikes. Therefore it doesn't fit into my spec. My list would be: 1. Nicolai 2. Commencal 3, Nukeproof Let me know if you think there are some other brands that would fit the spec, and I think about it ;)

I think titles need to be reviewed case by case. Defining my role with one word is challenging. Titles don't matter to me so much, but I need to be able to describe my job. Therefore, I call myself a bicycle engineer generally. The reason is that I have ten-year experience in engineering our bikes. I do engineering from zero to 100%. I do kinematics, stress analysis, and tolerances, and I'm very involved in production engineering, from CNC jig design to material flow engineering. Also, I do industrial design. I have several patents on our current manufacturing methods and one frame kinematics patent for Sensei suspension. People understand my position better when I call myself an engineer instead of an industrial designer. I'm an entrepreneur and CEO, but these titles also don't mean much. My job is a full-day job. I test-ride our bike, manage our marketing and the business, and oversee the operations. I'm a hands-on guy. I don't claim myself as an engineer because engineering, for example, a bridge, would need more knowledge, which I sure don't have. But bikes I can create damn well. Some people call me a renaissance man, but I think using that title myself before I'm old may be too much. :D

At the moment pricing is quite ok. Tesla opened their Gigafactory in Berlin, so I don't think car manufacturing is moving to China. Germans are too proud to have their factories in Germany. https://www.tesla.com/giga-berlin I post here the link about lithium recycling: https://www.fortum.com/products-and-services/fortum-battery-solutions/recycling
