    So if you had to remove all the rebound damping and turn up the compression damping on the rear shock is it a case that the bikes undershocked, or it wasn’t set up properly, to do those settings on a shock tends to go against the norm, is it able to be sorted by spacers, or not?

    No mention of the weight? I think the pinkbike review mentioned these things were 58lbs! FIFTY EIGHT!

    The fact that it has a slack seat angle and short chainstays, and consequently is less good at home climbing technical Singletrack along with the heigh weight seems a bit of a mismatch with the travel.

    After all, if one is riding a heavy e-bike best suited to fire road ascending, then it might as well have enduro or DH amounts of suspension for the descent.

    I would think that the purpose of a mid travel e-bike is to make normal mtb rides (meaning singletrack uphil, downhill and level-ish) longer and more fun, by boosting speed on the flat sections, and boosting endurance on the techy uphil sections.
