My daughter rides a conventional genius 940 , the onnthe fly suspension adjustment is an interesting feature. It's not just a peddling efficiency thing - you also change how the bike pumps / steers between settings. I'll wait and see how everything holds up to a couple of years abuse, but I'd consider annebike version as my next bike.

It did taje her 2/3 rides to adjust to the quirky dropper post lever - an absolute pita to adjyst

There's a few other mildly annoying things - torx 25+30 everywhere , the chain guide seems impossible to adjust for all 12 gears ( either 1 or 12 will rub) - minor hassles compared with having 3 bikes inn1 .

let us know how you find the bike if you ride it

on my local shop was have a Scott eRIDE 2019 model on sale for £5000.BUT E8000 motor IS OUT FOR 2-3year battery only 500w and I am quite interesting the Bosch gen4 motor 630w battery and much smaller motor and frame decide,so Design wait for the new model to order.

Wait for 2020 - if only for the ability to fit double batteries.

I'll be really interested to hear how the twinlock translates to an ebike. It's a great feature on a conventional bike, and I can imagine times it'd be a bonus on an ebike - eg riding smooth flowing trails you could switch to " uphill" mode and not have to ride an over suspended marshmallow .

Just a few random thoughts from the shed - the wheels on hers are heavier than those on my giant ebike - this really surprised me. Both are upper mid spec bikes, so still alloy rims. I did notice her rim tape was a lot more substantial that the thin junk my giant ( and norco) came with - almost a rubbery tape. Hopefully thus will mean it doesn't need retaping every couple of tyre changes....

there were a few unexpected quality touches - schwalbe tubes rather than nonamechinacrap brand. The grips are heaven - soft and sticky . All the cables seem clatter free, and there's a port under the frame for easy access. Rear axle has an allen key tool thing - arguably it would make more sense to be torks.....but I guess it's a start .

bad news - all those cables hang below the bottom bracket waiting for mr snag to grab them. The egenius I looked at in the store did the same thing. Hopefully you can work out some sort of guard / bashplate?

oh, and it's a short large. Think 2017 bike sizing in a 2019 bike. Still has " modern" low / longish geometry , but definitely a shirter reach than an equivalent sized giant. I see thus as a bonus - ie I agree with Gary that longer usn't always better. She's just on 6' so a short large fits her nicely.
