First Ride: Merida eOne-Forty
Ride one first. You won’t notice the weight! Take it for some real riding and ride, don’t obsess over the weight. My devinci is 56 pounds and feels lighter than my 24 pound race bikes of yesteryear and descends like a DH bike , feels more planted and tracks straighter when it gets rough and loose.

@kwcpinkbike: ride one for a week and you will be sold! I find it funny that people always say the bike industry is forcing, pushing or making people ride them. No! They are showing riders what they have, you always have had and continue to have the choice in what you ride! The reason ebikes are taking off is that you can ride them hard and get a better cardio/fitness ride without hammering your legs, or tune the bike to do more work and ride at 30-40-60 percent therefore saving your body for important workouts while remaining on single track trails over having to do your training on a road bike, they descend better/faster and are a blast to ride! If you don’t like them then ride an acoustic bike and shit up and ride and if you like them then ride one and RIDE! Pretty simple!

@SlodownU: well I ride ebike, trials, kite foil , e-foil, Moto, and do two sports a day and am a dad to a three year old. I spent 16 years racing full time as a pro, I have done lots of long rides, but I can now squish a 25-30km all single track ride in Squamish in 1:15 min And then go e-foiling and be home at 11 am for my daughter to spend the day with her, so for me ebikes allow to get more in , in a day. Not lazy just smart. If you want to grind up a hill for 2 hrs, awesome, but that is all where u are spending your time, not more sweet single track

@ranke: if you cheap out on components this will happen with any bike! Choose wisely always.

I give it less than a year and you will be selling your acoustic bike, the work out is better(if you want), faster riding, more riding, better descending and better climbing up stuff you never would have climbed before. Guaranteed! :)

Climb a super techy up trail, you will hit stuff a lot, the shorter cranks allow better clearance and because of the assist you wont notice much.

@bucky99: hmm, 15,000km on the devinci ac xt now over 4 bikes, not one issue, one has 5000km on it with same drivetrain. Basically a rear tire and rear pads every 900km. Never replaced anything else and bikes are in all in happy homes still been ridden. 500w/h batteries will easy go over 20,000 plus kilometers. I have one with about 7,000 km on it works perfectly. You can dream up all this stuff but I am actually riding the bikes. One ride does not constitute facts, if you had a joey ride a new enduro bike for a day would you accept his run down of the whole industry, ya didn't think so. Love to know what you think these bigger guys are putting on as a load on the bike over a carbon 30 pound bike? You whole post makes zero sense.

6 eMTBs from the Roc - Roc D'Azur 2019
actually it is improving, they are using them for everything too, when you ride one you will suddenly see how important they wil be come to a racer as a training tool. Unless you feel intervals or threshold riding are not important. You dont know what you dont know.....
