How about an E-Bike category, chiner carbon of course?
« on: June 13, 2017, 04:15:47 AM »
I spent the last week in the Austrian Alps on a Specialized Levo 650b Fully E-Bike. This is the thing, if you're close to the mountains. Pure adventure, because you do routes that I never did on my non supported FS bike. E-Bikes let you discover steep trails that could otherwise only be done by foot. I loved it.

First HT chiner e-Bike frames exist, ICAN and Dengfu are in the process of creating Fullys.
How about we create a category for E-Bikes and collect input, like geometry, tire clearance, cable routing, BB, suspension travel etc.?

ICAN: http://www.icanbikes.com/html/MTB/E_bike_series/355.html
DENGFU: http://m.dengfubikes.com/index.php?s=/191.html

What do you think?

Not a bad idea! I'm not a fan but I do see where they can help. Here are a couple more hardtails to add to the list.
