So. I'm thinking the trails won't be filled with emtbs for 2-3 years. It takes that long for new tech to hit the trails in big numbers. Was the same with disc brakes full suspension 29ers etc. doesn't matter if you can buy one for 4.5 k. People don't just jump in untiley are easy to get.
Agree. But these people have the $$$ and also have the bike to do the mods too. Spending $8000 on a bike is not as common as we think $3000 - $5000 sure. I think we have 3 years or so until $5000 ebikes are easy to get. That's when access will become a discussion
Been on the prime for 3 months now. Pretty good so far. Wheels are a bit heavy and rims are a bit soft. Put some xt brakes on it. Everything is pretty solid otherwise. Very comfortable to ride. Handles nicely. It's no xc bike. Won't jump out from under you when you push hard but it...
