There's a guy in my neighborhood that has a couple of Prodeco's very similar to yours George. He's very happy with them.

EddieJ, I like the first picture best. That serves to prove my point that you can get a good picture of any bike, it just depends on the camera angle, and composition.

But I still don't like riding in mud lol.

I'm not one to take a lot of pictures of my bikes while out and about and less likely to post them anywhere but @EddieJ pics (great pics, Eddie) got me thinkin...

Great shot J.R. If Court or someone ever decides to make an EBike calendar this is the one for January!
Well @JoePah, since it's highly unlikely that I would ever be featured in a calendar, I guess it would be OK if my bike were!

@EddieJ , it can be eerie out there! Most days I never see another person out there for miles and miles. Kind of cool and very peaceful. My own brand of yoga and meditation... As for the new pics, ain't the mud a blast:cool:

I can completely relate to your statement of your own brand of yoga meditation. That is exactly how I feel about my riding. Okay not so much when in the mud and struggling, but riding in a peaceful tranquil place, with no one else around, is just such a great way to chill and relax.

Ref your photos. For some reason they remind me of a typical scene from a WW2 film set in Germany. I can kind of visualise rounding the corner, only to be greeted by German soldiers. If a photo can stimulate the viewer into expanding upon it, then it must be a great photo. I want to be there. :)

Just spotted something.

Is that a suspension seat post fitted top full suspension bike?:D

If it is, then what's the point?
Tried the bike without it and found that I was getting a bit of a push off the seat after a bump, with the BodyFloat the saddle is glued to my arse. Also the BF can react much more quickly than the full length of the swingarm and so addresses the high frequency bumps of everyday riding. I imagine it is something you would have to experience to really get it. Also 'bear' in mind I'm doing as much as 12 thousand miles a year so every bit of comfort helps. -S

Don't you find that you get a conflict of interest for want of a better word between the two units. I have a vision of it riding like one of those clowns bikes that go up and down whilst the rider pedals. :)

You must also loose a hell of a lot of pedal efficiency through having two sets of suspensions operating. I guess that it works for you, otherwise you wouldn't be doing it. It just seems strange. :)

Like I said if you have not experienced a BodyFloat you may not get it. Mine started on a hardtail and made it feel like a new bike. Nothing in the industry reacts faster than a spring under compression in the parallelogram configuration. Regarding efficiency you are overthinking it, the BF does not have that much travel and is calibrated to my weight (165#). BTW - I ride center position on the rear shock (unless off road) and only lockout the front for short steep hill climbs out of the saddle, aka a sprint. With an unlocked motor in Turbo and a spare battery I'm hardly concerned with ultimate efficiency. Regarding a conflict between the two rear suspension mechanisms, again think of the 16 inch swing arm VS the 3 inch parallelogram, the short arm (under pretension) can probably cycle at 30 Hz, while the long arm maybe hits 3 or 4 Hz. One is the Bass guitar and the other the lead. The effect is like a new Cadillac, plush and dreamy with the added benefit of staying put in the saddle from the pretension. A test ride would have you rethinking it all for sure. -S
