First Ride: Merida eOne-Forty
It's pretty clear to me that Pinkbike is not going to miss out the ebike thing / peding growth of this category. I ride in the Santa Cruz Mountains and just purchased a Decoy. Do I think the Decoy is going to replace my Yeti? Nope, but I do think on average I'll get one extra day of riding per week and that it will actually aid in my training. So 52 rides extra per year is ok in my book. On some of the Bay Area rides provide a significant drop into the forest which is a blast until you point back uphill. This is where is see the biggest advantage of the bike in that I'll get two full loops on a typical Sunday vs. one loop on the Yeti huffing and puffing with the best of them. Yes, the best of them. I do agree that there are some real idiots out there, and having an electric weapon will only make them even bigger idiots. Yet again, we're also talking about folks that attach Bluetooth speakers so they can enjoy their favorite shit music. Yes, this is a new phenomenon, the music crowd. Time will tell, but I do LOVE my Yeti, and the Decoy will be fun to use. Let's see how well the drivetrain, pivots, and motor hold up. It will progress and the sport will grow, and yes, be prepared to see many new articles on Pinkbike.

YT Launch Limited Edition Top Spec Raw Aluminium Capra 29
Yeah, but Ibis does the new Ripmo NX build for $2999.00 which is a real value compared to a bike with Fox Factory 36, XTR, Code RSC, etc., and read the comments from the Ibis release. "thank you Ibis for doing this, this is incredible, Wow, OMG, the industry commends you". This bike rocks period. Now justify that Ibis.

First Look: Ibis' New Ripmo AF is Coil-Compatible & Aluminum
This bike looks pretty cool. Wonder how it will climb as weight being it's enemy on the steep and deep. Serious buyers should also look at the Commencal Meta TR. It's a better time to be a buyer, atleast for now.
