    Marvellous to see this early while having lunch in Ikea near Leeds.  Alas no bike parts but the Swedish meatballs are excellent.

    Top secret thing – Is that on a Canyon E-bike as it says CF on the top tube?

    I thought the top secret thing might have been self centering steering, then I noticed the position of the front wheel.

    Isn’t a football a “caser” rather than a “Casey”?

    Ahem, cherry picker? Category 3B mobile elevating work platform thankyouverymuch…

    Secret tech looks like a display/control uni to me, next gen of kit from bosch, yamaha, fazua etc presumably?

    Privateer will be mega fun.

    My ipaf course was done in the holding carpark for a very fancy garage, turns out the first time you drive one of those things around at full extension that doing it round what was probably several million pound in cars helps focus the mind a bit. I remember the last flag I had to pickup needed me to move the unit in between a cayenne and a bright blue lambo with about four inch to spare then swing the boom up and round.
    On the upside I’ve never been nervous about driving one on site 🤣

    That Lapierre looks really nice.  I’m glad e-bikes are starting to look better nowadays. 2 questions.
    1 – can the battery be removed so it can be used as a regular bike (like the Transition Relay)?

    and 2 – is the seat tube long enough for a decent dropper insertion.

    @zerocool 1. The battery can be removed I think (it’s a bit faffy and only meant to happen if needs repairing/replacing I reckon) but the motor remains in place o it isn’t as weight savey as previous E Zesty models (if that’s what you mean?)

    2. Hmm. I’d say no to ‘decent’ insertion. ‘Acceptable’ insertion maybe. This XL can only *just* about about have my saddle low enough at pedalling height with the 170 post inserted as far as seat tube allows. The L also comes with a 170mm post too IIRC. In this instance, it’s fine for me but for other folks and/or on other sizes, I dunno.

    Agreed that the Lapierre looks great, but even with the guard that shock looks destined for some major stone & grit damage.
