Agree with more travel. Really no reason not to make this a 6" bike, not like 1 or 2 pounds of weight matters in this application.

The Rotwild and Haibike XDURO are more like it but the Big S seems to have taken the electronics integration to the next level.

Love it!!! Finally some non European company gets it. There was hate for suspension when it first came out, in fact there is hate for EVERY new mtb trend when it comes out. I don't get it why there are so many negative nancy's out there but either way it seems...more

No it's not 'pure' in the MTB/sado masochististic pedaling sense whatever the hell that means. And no I can't do a 100+ mile epic singletrack throttle twisting...more

The article says it perfectly. "The Levo will allow you to go much further and higher". I love my XC Bike and I love my good XC rides with my XC friends. I see no reason for anyone to flame this bike. Might not be for everyone but if you care that much about...more

In Europe these aren't defined as mopeds! They are 'Pedalecs' and can be used anywhere you can use a bike. Pedal assistance only works up to 15mph, after that it you're pedalling by yourself. Which is fine, especially downhill, just like a normal bike!

the fork has a matte finish, the orange matches in person, guessing it just didn't photograph in the studio the same way it looks in person. They had them at the event last weekend, it think it looks good!

who cares if the cranks are alloy or carbon? I bet they are light and stiff and the price is right. sounds good to me! 1x11 FTW.

man, Lopez just keeps lockin' in the prime sponsors... he's on all the best stuff. He used to run crappy Fox gear, Fox Shox, GT bikes, Bell Helmets... Now he has Pearl Izumi, X-Fusion, Ibis, Novatec and Lazer. it's pretty obvious he's picking the best, and not just chasin' the Benjamins.

I've blown out more office chairs than I have adjustable seatposts! I guess that means I spend too much time at the office and too little time riding. Dammit.
