    The new Pole Vikkelä is the Finnish brand’s 190mm travel big rig and continues its rather pole-arising approach to making mountain bikes.

    The last photo so needs a caption….

    “What do you mean this is the finished aesthetic?”

    Yeah I’m glad it’s available in other colours than bling gold.

    It’s actually uglier than most ebikes. Which is quite an achievement.

    That is quite possibly the ugliest bike I have ever seen.

    It’ll be interesting to see how it sells, as ebike buyers expect their bikes to be minging anyway.

    Also, I read the Bikeradar review of the eeb version and he thought the high BB was a significant issue.

    Perhaps a proper test ride would be advisable.

    As much as it does look a bit “special”, fitting 190mm travel, piggyback shock and two full size bottles into the frame, plus making the bearings very easy to service I think makes up for it.

    The idea of tuning stiffness using swapable axles is an interesting one too.
