huskier headed gent
Yes I know ebikes are evil and I should burn in hell but I also don't wear lycra so I must be doing something right.
Here is my 2022 Marin Alpine Trail E1 with a few mods.
Got rid of the fork like most as the Gold 35 are pretty average and picked up the Lyriks used for a good price but may need to increase the rise on my bars as the steerer was cut a bit shorter than I would have liked.
This was the first ride trying a 450lb spring and I feel like I am halfway in between but will give it some more time.
Just changed to a 200mm Fox transfer dropper which fits the large frame slammed. A 200mm dropper really should have come as standard on the large frame.
The gold brakes were the only ones in stock at the time for a reasonable price so don't judge the bling too harshly, kept the stock rotors and despite needing the shop to route the cable around the motor after I lost the end of it, they were pretty much plug and play.
Overall loving the bike and being more confident to join rides that I would have avoided on an acoustic bike due to fitness. Instead of getting to the top of a climb and having to stop and recover I now just turn straight into the downhill and get way more mileage out of the short riding windows I get.
