    The new Bosch motor is really good. Shop guys are getting 45+kms with 1000m of climbing done regularly with juice still in the battery.

    I want a bosch bike for sure. I heard they sip the powah. Thats pretty good considering the distance. I hear theyre the most dependable by far. A friend i recommended a cube too, because of the bosch gen 4 had his controller fixed/replaced in a day. I think bosch keeps good stock of parts for them. Thats been most of the reports. Ive only heard one report of someone having to wait a bit but it wasnt an obscene wait. "Bearing man" in the uk has had them apart and has been servicing everything on the gen3 and says no problem to service the gen4 if/when needed. Thats bearings/axle/sleeves. No confirmation on the ability to replace the tourque sensor if needed. Thats the last thing i'm curious about.

    My local area is doing just that, we just got a 35km paved trail from Invermere to Fairmont. Next phase is Invermere to Radium. Hot springs to hot springs. The amount of elderly on Ebikes on this trail is amazing. Local shops are selling townie e cruisers like crazy.

    I was thinking offroad but thats pretty cool. Between ebikes and that trail thats a great resource to get people out on the trails. Maybe eventually the columbia basin trust will link us all

    That was a fun video, but not necessarily a ringing endorsement of big days on ebikes. Dead, heavy bikes donít seem too sweet.

    It was a ringing endorsement and 50lb heavy bikes are sweet but please continue commenting on something you are unaware of

    The beauty of having this paved system is the ability to have single track spur trails branch off the main pathway. Add Ebike to be able to access trails without loading a bike in a vehicle and not riding on the road.

    Great to see the development around invermere. So many new trails im hearing of. Such a nice spot with the lake/beach surrounded by options. Always thought steamboat could have more trails. Nice dirt and pitch for building

    The terrain at Steam boat is fantastic for MTB I agree, the moto users have been building unauthorized trails like crazy there meanwhile the MTB club is following the rules and waiting for trail proposal approvals that take years.

    Rogue MTB builders are tired of waiting for official approvals so they are getting after it in hidden spots in the valley. 2 new DH trails were built this summer. More will follow next year.

    Kona looks like a great option. Im waiting to see how the ep8 motor does after a year. The bike itself has really nice geo and lots of standover. It will take 29 and 27.5. Haven't ridden one. There on hold for the ep8 fix. The bolt pattern is the same as the e8000 so it was supposed to allow current bike molds to not be redesigned but i think tolerances were off on the ep8 so theyve got a fix in the works. I think i heard january for most bikes.

    Ive heard that somewhere. I guess you'll have time to see if the ep8 is good then. Moto trails i think you'll want a full powah emtb. I wouldnt mind an sl weight option but that won't replace the 85-90 nm full powah emtb for me. Currently im going slow on tech clombs like similar to what sections of the mpto trails might have. Its nice to have the 85-90 nm tourque to spin lower revs because its easier and funner just finding traction that way than spinning like we normally do on mtb's. Using the rear brake occcasionally to modulate the power in boost, like moto trials riders will do, so the tires don't spin out in snow or wet roots. The new ep8 and the bosch gen4 will allow you to get full power out of their tourque reliant settings. "Trail mode" for the ep8 and " emtb mode" for the bosch. My e8000 doent have full power in trail mode only boost and boost doesn't work off the tourque sensor quite the same. In boost mode the tourque sensor just engages the boost mode at full power. In trail mode the tourque sensor feeds off your input. You can feather the power or push harder and it gives you more or crank on it and it gives you even more. You can modulate the power but i can't get the full power like the new ep8 or bosch gen 4.
    As for weight, i think you'd learn to appreciate the weight on moto trails. Check the vital shootout. They tested on moto trails and liked the weight quality on those trails

    This is about as light as they get for full power. Proper tires and its 45lbs
    https://www.mondraker.com/us/en/2021...y-carbon-rr-sl

    I could make mine 46lbs from the stock 48 but i have it at probably 53 with dh tires , no carbon, slx cassette for more steel cogs, steel freehub body., normal coil rear shock. I want that performance more than less weight. Might as well have more travel , coil and dh tires if you have assist. More capable almost every where

    And finally, mondraker frame that doesn't look like a tree fell on it.
    Common sense. So rare today in America it's almost like having a superpower.

    Looks like they sell them worldwide. I dont think ive seen one irl. Seems like they were 6 or 7 years ahead of everyone with their geo. I think theyre pricey. I didnt look
