Thanks Rick, that's actually the best eval I have ever read on the superlights. You're absolutely spot on on their limitations. I am waiting for the technology to advance with solid state batteries and nano motors to the point where a 38 pound Ebike can do what a full fat levo does today. I think I am not alone.To add on to this thread, having owned a Rise (M-LTD) and having recently sold it to switch to a full power Levo, I can share some experiences. While the Rise was a perfect bike for solo rides, it wasn't ideal for riding with others on full power eMTBs, and not really needed for rides with regular MTBs. Don't get me wrong, the Rise is a solid bike, but being "neither man nor beast" let to it not getting a lot of use from me. I find myself taking the Levo out a lot more.
I heard rumors form LBS that New SL is coming in next year March probably
Of course just rumors
Maybe Spesh is doing some last minute changes due new TQ motor for EXE and Fazua 60
Why buy an emtb? You can no longer pedal the same way as before on a normal mtb. At least that's what I thought.
And then you end up riding an emtb with your friends with a turbo. A lighter assistant emtb can't do it.
Was the original purpose of the purchase forgotten here? Or has your physical condition gone down so that a light e-mtb is not enough or has speed blindness struck?
These are the things I think about when I read these writings.
