Bicycle addict. I like steep ups and downs. Road, CX, AM trail and anything fun on bikes. Also ride to get around town.

@KalkhoffKiller: RS 35 is trash. BUT a majority of ebike riders are trail cruising.

First Look: Orbea's 2023 Rise eMTB Gets Even Lighter
@professed: FYI Orbea states clearly that Max. ATC limits you to 150mm fork on Rise if you want your warranty.

@mr-epic-3: 100% agree and the 35 forks annoy me to no end as a salesperson. That being said, if you came to me and told me your ride steep and techy, I'd just reccomend one of the models with a Fox38 for that very reason. But you're right those bikes "should" have domains or yaris

@saladdodger: they definitely benefit from full suspension for comfort, safety and bumpy dirt roads. yeah they'd be better off on a full suspension trekking bike but most base model eMTBs are more afforable.

Opinion: Group Rides Are the Worst
Most people that are fun to ride with... suck to hang out with. Most people whose company I enjoy ...suck to ride with. 98% solo rides and every once in a while with 1 or 2 friends. Exceptions for kids and girlfriend.

100% This. RS35 is barely acceptable for my kids on an entry level normal bike. I sell these and for anyone who ins't fireroad grampa, the fork is just a joke. The good news is, mostly fireroad grampa buying the bikes with the 35's...

@andrewfrauenglass: This would legit sell once there are tons of used eMTB's with dead batteries. Think of the massive in-bike storage without the battery there! There's a young man with not much $ in town who rides a Giant eMTB without the battery and a dead motor because he got it for a song, shreds all over.

I'll be happy to schedule that repair for you. We'll need all day, so we have to book it 3 weeks out. Yes, we do charge the normaly hourly rate. I'll go ride my singlespeed after work. Thanks for the business, keeps the team busy!

It's 2030 - I want 3 water bottles INSIDE my frame. A heads up display that talks to my eBike. A heated saddle. Maybe by 2040 they'll have automatic "smart" clipless pedals? Don't hit your crank arm though, you might get locked in!
