What do you guys think of this?
My blood pressure can't take anymore of this excitement. That is one helluva good looking bike. Are you going to offer this new design? And is that the bafang Max Drive. I really like the integrated battery. Much cleaner design. Are you going to start using the integrated battery on all you future bikes?
The torque sensor is a very different feel from the PAS. Torque sensor only puts out power when your feet does. It almost always motivates me to pedal harder and harder every time I get out.Looks great and the torque sensor PAS should be superb. Why is my barely broken-in Juggernaut (which is a great bike) starting to look "old" already? (LOL)
Would a 3 or 7-speed IGH in lieu of the derailleur make any sense in this combo?
Looks really nice!!
Avid Hydraulic brakes, smooth PAS (MAX drive), Suntour suspension seatpost, integrated 48V, 11.6Ah battery. Great specs.
Felt did it with Lebowsk-e and kind of faded away because of price and a lot of other things.
iGo released a nice fattie on CF campaign but lost traction. Izip sumo comes close to it in terms of specs but is priced at $3.5K
So, if you can sell this for a very competitive price, let's say $2.3K, you sway a lot of customers away from Sumo, Radrover etc.
If you can release a non-fattie version with similar specs and suspension, you could give some serious competition.
While the integrated battery does look very sleek, at least for me, I think the way it is currently (non-integrated) is a lot more practical. My work is 13 miles away and I commute on my Juggernaut (well, have for 2 days now ) - I need to take the battery inside to charge it on my desk otherwise I am afraid that I don't have enough juice to get home.
