Hadn't heard of this bike, somehow missed it, but was in the LBS last night taking a maintenance class and couldn't keep my eyes off this thing. Thought it was some new carbon beast. Wasn't until I got close and that I realized it was an electric.

Sorry for the shitty, blurry pic.
Everyone in the shop loves it. The first ebike that they all unanimously loved.
Kool that the motor and battery are completely hidden and that its Bluetooth programable, even peaks over our 500w Canadian limit.
To bad it's priced at $7500 cdn. :shock:
Me thinks this ebike thing might be catching on :wink:

Amusing list of "Dislikes":
Trail access may be problematic
Durability and DIY maintenance may be questionable
Walking it, carrying it, and just moving it in and out of the house or onto and off of a car become real chores
This dropper post is a fiddly nightmare, it releases on descents and collapses on climbs

The Turbo Levo has caused a lot of dissension over at mtbr, it really is the proverbial fox in the hen house! Cries of Sell Out abound for Specialized, any LBS that might sell one and for sure, any rider who might actually ride one and publicly confess to liking it.

I think it's great!! :wink:

First Ride: Lapierre Overvolt AM Carbon

First Ride: Lapierre Overvolt AM Carbon :

"Lapierre’s latest e-mtb features a new frame concept .. The Bosch battery sits much lower than many other models, which works to both lower the bike’s centre of gravity and improve the handling.."
