    Without sounding awful that’s bloody ugly imo.

    Aye, it’s not a looker, quite ED209-like.

    Did whoever designed this also used to work on the set of Buck Rogers? Fugly

    It reminds me of Kryton.

    What is the point of having twinloc on an emtb? I don’t think I’ve ever heard an ebiker complain about the pedalling platform as they breeze past me on the climbs.

    Another brand thinking that routing cables through the headset is a good idea. The Focus and Nukeproof bikes are two I’d rule out buying for just this reason alone.

    Laughing at the idea that the picture above shows a ‘clean finish’ on this one, what a mess.

    Isn’t this kind of thing what the “Charged” Channel is for?

    All I can think (other than man that is ugly) is a vision of the future, walking into a Scott dealer “I’m looking for a spare integrated mount for a 2021 Scott Patron, do you have one in stock?” and then the shop assistant looking really, really worried.

    All those bespoke parts scare me, not that it isn’t click but the spares in the future. Bad enough trying to get standard bits ….

    What if the bike companies just make all the cad files available publicly after 3 years. Then you can 3d print your own…

    I liked the idea of it (maybe not the aesthetics) until I saw the word TwinLoc and switched off.

    If they’d smoothed off all the edges a bit I think the integrated shock and frame would look quite nice.

    I wonder how the rear shock gets cooled? Even on my fairly lightweight 180mm “Big” bike, long continuous downhills (alps / bike park) see the shocks get pretty hot to the touch, even with remote resevoir style “one way” oil loops

    “Electric mountain bikes have a crowded handlebar, between the brakes, dropper post, gears, drive unit cables, remote and suspension lockout, that’s a lot of cables.”

    Well most aren’t as cluttered as a Scott because they don’t have the stupid TwinLoc remote in the way of the dropper remote with its 2 extra cables. I hired a Whyte E-150 and didn’t think it was cluttered at all with its fairly unobtrusive screen (about the size of a small Garmin).

    A wireless remote would make a lot of sense too, and the display could be top tube moounted instead of sitting on top of the stem, waiting to get smashed. It’s like they want to create clutter.

    The problem with the thinking, singletrackworld.com/2021/09/scott-launches-the-all-new-patron-eride/#post-12026581

    which is great, is that you are assuming that bike companies do such things with their bespoke / IP “stuff” and that everyone has access to a 3d printer.

    Neither has happened so far and whilst 3d printers are available at stores, the cost and the files to create bespoke parts isn’t and they all protect and file a court case pretty rapidly these days.

    I hope you’re right but cannot see it.

    Whilst I love smacking my front chain ring off rocks as much as the next person, at least it’s relatively cheap and easily replaceable. With this, it looks like you’ll just smack the bottom of the frame instead? Appreciate there’s a rock guard or something but not sure I’d fancy it.

    Should’ve called it the “Patton” as it looks like a tank.

    Is that 2000m of elevation when you weigh 50kg or 120kg or regardless?

    That is an e-bike for radio.

    Someone obviously never got over that Raleigh Vektar Santa didn’t bring them in the 80s… Bleurgh.
