 I love Jordie and i like eBikes. But here it sure just looks sooo heavy. And if you drive to the spot with a car the eBike is pointless. Don‘t get the message here...

Cool dog!

 The Decoy is not designed to replace the car! Smile

 @Jamsxr: no? Imo bikes are designed to do just that. And bikes with motors even more. You can shuttle yourself AND ride downhill fast. So...

 Exactly my thoughts.

 He's sending it cause he a great rider who can send anything but it appeared to me that the extra weight was making the bike wallow a bit (00:56) when a decent bike without a motor and battery pack would skip playfully over the surface. Least ways that's how it looked from where I'm sitting...

 I don't ride at the level he does (nor do I ride with pedal assist) so I'm only guessing here, but I suppose even though it is additional weight, the electronics give the bike a lower cg and a relatively lower unsprung weight. So on the kind of steep stuff he's doing, that could actually be helpful. Not saying there aren't cheaper ways to achieve that of course, but I just meant to say that the added weight probably isn't just a downside.

 @vinay: fair comment.

 In my minimal experience having demoed and e-mtb, the additional weight makes the bike significantly more stable through chop compared to my analog mtb.

 the extra weight generally isn’t that noticeable, it doesn’t feel heavy to ride. I do however seem to have to work harder to clear bigger jumps

 Loving the fact that the doggo took the chicken line.

 Jordie needs a trail cat, he's outgrown the trail dog.

 The all new YT Decoy: the best way to get rid of unwanted animals.

 Ebike with mx goggles - oh my! What’s next?

 What's the song?

 I don't know, but the words near the beginning sound like they were saying "heavy" over and over. Appropriate for an e-bike ad.
