Is no one buying? Can't find many users on FB, YouTbe or here.

Interested in people's experiences so far. Hoping to get one when £ allows. TIA

Safe to say the price is holding a lot of interested riders back. With all the talk of manufacturers overstocked and offering big savings on the backlog of '23 bikes , we're not seeing that from Mondraker.

A false alarm above, my bad.
Still seeing Fuel Exe and also Scott Lumens on sale (TQ). How long can I hold out for a Neat?

I'm sure I read a couple of years ago that Mondraker deliberately hold back on production so that they don't have to go into fire-sale mode just to clear stock before the new model. Does anyone else recall that?

Still no sales. New SL models dropping all the time. Even seen a newly released
CUBE AMS HYBRID ONE44 C:68X SUPER TM 400X 29 with over a 1k discount already. Some Fuel Exes with 45% off. Mondraker must be losing out here?

I'm a huge Mondraker fan (have owned 2) and the Neat is a pretty special bike. However, I have to admit after riding my Relay F60 for a year, I just would not want a reduction in power and especially battery life.

Unfortunately, the TQ HP50 is very inefficient with its limited battery watts due to its unique design.

Francis Cebedo did climbs and measured how much battery juice was used with the different e-bikes and a quick calculation showed that the Fazua 60 models could have made the same climb about 6.5x more than the TQ HP (going off memory honestly). This is because of the smaller battery and the lower efficiency of the TQ.

I ran my Fazua down to 18% last weekend (most ever) and I just would not want a reduction in range and power. Unfortunately, power corrupts. I started off being adamant that my Relay would remain in the lowest setting and I was content like that for a long while. But as time went on, I began wanting more and more power and now use the middle and rocket setting much more.

New Mondraker nbikes are around with offers, some are starting to come through but it's between model years so it is limited choice. Also Mondraker whilst being competitive do not sit on stock in the UK so they are not affected as much by the oversupply on some types of bike
