Rob, how is the fit of the bike as it seems the XL is really not that big? I'm 6'2 with long legs and it's been nice to see bikes get bigger but this one seems to have shrunken compared to the Kenevo and Levo.
Compared to the SRAM GX Eagle, the NX is 185 g heavier, with the chain and derailleur making the biggest weight difference. Compared to an X01 Eagle, the NX Eagle gains a whole 438 g, which is quite understandable with a price difference of € 900.
Interested to see if the "normal" models stack up as viable options over a conventional emtb, as it seems from just looking at the reviews/launch info that its really only the SWorks that comes in at a weight that would make a noticeable difference.
Can’t bast it as that leaves a rough surface, fine for a key if you paint or powder afterward, but if you want smooth finish that you can then ‘brush’ , it needs to be smooth.
I chemically dip the frame to remove paint then hand finish.....only way to do it.
I’ll put some progress pics up but maybe in different thread to save bunging this one up for those not interested😳
It’s sightly noisier but not much, its gear drive rather than belt so to be expected. Big plus I found is ability to pedal through the limiter and it feels like a normal bike, next to no drag unlike my Levo that feels like pedalling through treacle🤦♂️
I got my 2018 comp carbon levo down to 20.7 kilos, i dont understand how they can ask the same money for a bike that has less battery, frame and motor weight, and really only saving +2kilos. Full fat levo all day
