I tried my best to be among the first to buy a Shimano EP8 based emtb. The bike was scheduled to arrive in October. But October came, and the bike did not. It had disappeared during transport.
Thankfully, we’ve got a few contacts to help me out. An “old” 2020 Merida eOne-Sixty 5000 was delivered within two days. And we got started on buliding the bike I wanted in the first place. Check out the video published on EMTB Videos for part one of the full story.
