Summary

  • A trail worthy, full suspension electric mountain bike with stiff lightweight frame construction, optimized suspension and a tightly integrated mid-drive motor from Yamaha
  • Upgraded 500 watt hour battery pack delivers 60+ miles on medium assist, powerful hydraulic disc brakes with 203/180 mm rotors and four piston calipers are easy to use and very smooth
  • Simple remote button pad makes interacting with the control comfortable and intuitive, removable backlit display, integrated micro-usb port, internally routed cables, remote seat post dropper
  • The charger is large and heavy, I'm not a huge fan of the way it connects given the proximity to crank arms and locking feature (which could tip the bike or get bent easier), more limited RPM range on the motor

Written Review

The SDURO AllMtn 6.0 is a near top of the line model from Haibike running a Yamaha mid-drive motor and upgraded 500 watt hour battery pack… That’s a 25% capacity increase from some of the lower-end models and prior year equipment. What I usually notice first about Haibikes is their beautiful purpose-built frames with angular tubing. The rear swing arm consists of four bars, orienting travel vertically and interfering less with braking action. You get light weight air suspension from RockShox, front and rear, with a Diamond Light Coating (DLC) meant to optimize slide and reduce stiction on the fork. Both wheels are connected with thru-axles for strength and stiffness and the hubs are slightly wider, featuring Boost Technology. This is one of many new e-mountain bikes with plus sized tires… 27.5″ x 3″ and that’s designed to improve traction given the heavier build of the bike at ~52 lbs and efficiency of electric assist helping to overcome drag. Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires come tubeless ready but apparently the rim has to be taped and a new stem added to actually run this way. I worked with a friend, Marc Johnson, of ReCycles in Irvine California for this review. He owns this model personally and was able to dig into some of the details with me on camera. I love how integrated the motor and battery are, without being built into the frame. This allows for quicker removal and less expensive replacement while also making them forward compatible from the smaller pack size. You don’t get the large open triangle that some other models from Specialized and Bulls are offering but the price tag here is lower. With four frame sizes to choose from, a wide dealer network worldwide and a control system that is easy to use and fairly advanced (integrated Micro USB port, soothing backlight, removable screen) I’m a fan. The only consideration is a slower cadence operation compared with Bosch. It’s great for ascending and offers plenty of torque. You can set multiple cogs up front (this has a 20 speed drivetrain) and I like how compact and protected it all is with a replaceable plastic shield at the bottom bracket… Just note that it doesn’t have a shift detection controller so you’ll want to change gears thoughtfully to reduce stress on the chain, scraping on the rear cogs and bending on the derailleurs.

Driving the bike is a 250 watt nominally rated, 500 watt peak, 80 Newton meter motor from Yamaha. It’s one of the quieter mid-drive systems I’ve tried and it’s certainly powerful. Using a range of sensors including rear wheel speed, pedal cadence and pedal torque, it responds naturally. Yamaha advertises a “zero cadence” feature meant to excite mountain bikers and it certainly starts fast… but to me it’s on par with Bosch. The material advantage to me is a near $1,000 price difference between most competing models. Marc argued with me on this point defending zero cadence and I welcome you to chime in if you’ve tested both. It certainly works well and is one of the leading systems on the market today.

Powering the motor and display system is a Lithium-ion battery pack that connects mid-frame on top of the downtube. Unlike Bosch and most others, it slides in from the side allowing for a more sloped top-tube and lower stand-over height. I like this design and appreciate the plastic loop at the top for carrying. You can charge the pack on or off the frame and removing it shaves 6.7 lbs making the bike easier to lift, service and transport. Both wheels also offer quick release and the display panel is removable. I love that… So the battery looks exactly like the smaller 400 watt hour pack from years past and charges relatively fast with the included 4 Amp charger. I do feel that this charger is larger and heavier than necessary, at least compared to other chargers on the market today. You get plenty of range with the 500 watt hour battery pack (between 60 and 120 miles depending on assist level, terrain, rider weight etc.) so hopefully you don’t have to carry the charger with you in a backpack… and you probably will need a backpack given the lack of bottle cage bosses on the bike. This is a fairly common occurance with ebikes and you could add a saddle rail adapter to solve it. Note the quality saddle and decent seat post dropper that come stock. Even the pedals are decent considering many high-end bicycles forego them altogether. My final gripe with the battery and charger has to do with how they connect. The charging port is a little circle and the charging cord ends with a circular male plug that inserts into place. Sure, you want a secure connection for charging but what if you trip over the cable or the bike tips or the pedals get bumped and spin into the plug?! Bad news hombre. Some other systems use the magnetic EnergyBus standard that just pops out, possibly not even tipping your bike. I wish Yamaha would adopt a solution like this.

Operating this electric bike is fairly simple. Once the battery is charged and clicked onto the frame (I believe you have to physically turn the key to lock it on vs. an automatic click) the display can be powered on with a press on at the remote button pad. I love how easy this pad is to reach, how it only has four buttons on top and that it appears to be well sealed against water and mud. Marc echoed this sentiment stating that he’d learned how to use it without looking in just a few short rides. It’s nice to have controls within reach that aren’t confusing when you’re riding in off-road conditions. Between the locking grips, the two-finger hydraulic disc brakes and the large LCD display panel… it’s very usable. And that display panel is well laid out. I like that it offers a 10-bar battery infographic and battery percentage readout! You also get a range estimator that changes dynamically as you arrow up or down between the four assist levels. These are features that only the high-end ebikes offer today. The other readouts on the display have to do with trip stats and can be cycled through using the S button below the power button. Note how the handle bar rises up and the stem is negative angle so you end up with a simulated flat bar but get the protection of the grips and metal tubing in the event of a bail. This was designed to protect the nice large display.

My understanding is that an All Mountain bike should be capable of downhill riding but still function on rolling hills and climbing. You get plenty of suspension adjustability here and a geometry that isn’t set too far back. The bike handles well and feels nice over the bumps but isn’t so specialized that you couldn’t tool around town with it. I’m a huge fan of full suspension given the distance and speed that ebikes empower their riders with and usually that comes with a much higher price tag. While the SDURO line can still be expensive and the 6.0 is higher in the range, you get a lot of premium hardware for under $5k. The warranty is 2 year comprehensive with 5 on the frame and even non-electric bike shops should be comfortable servicing it. Just remember to shift consciously at first and you’ll get the hang of the motor. Be careful with the battery pack and larger display and bring your CamelBak or other accessory bag. Big thanks to Marc and Haibike for partnering with me on this review, it’s always great to have an expert on-hand and his drone footage was a neat addition to the video towards the end :)

Pros:

  • Plus sized tires (those over 2.8″ wide) have caught on with electric mountain bikes because they can run at lower PSI, provide better traction and cushion and reduce deflection and slipping on rocky surfaces, the SDURO ALLMTN 6.0 uses higher quality Schwalbe tires that are 3″ wide
  • Available in four frame sizes, this electric bike offers higher performance and fit, I love how the top tube is angled down for lower stand over height (the battery slides out sideways to help achieve this
  • Excellent weight distribution with both the motor and battery mounted towards the center of the frame and kept low
  • The motor is powerful and responsive offering smooth starts and stops (measuring pedal cadence and torque to activate as well as rear wheel speed), you get up to 80 Nm of torque which makes it an excellent climber if you shift gears appropriately
  • Beautiful paint and graphics… Haibike has long been a favorite of mine because they just look cool and professional, notice the fork and saddle are tied in, non-ebikers seem more interested because it looks legit
  • Higher-end lightweight air suspension front and rear offers a ton of travel so you can handle a bit of downhill and use it as a true all mountain electric bike, the four-bar suspension uses 15 mm axles for strength and stiffness and the tubing is boxed and extra stiff without adding much weight
  • The battery can be charged on or off the bike frame and is easy to remove (though it does not rattle or feel loose when mounted to the frame), it weighs about 6.7 lbs so taking it off could make mounting the bike to car racks safer and easier (more space in the triangle), it offers excellent range now upgraded to ~500 watt hours vs. the older 400 wh (which are still compatible with the interface so you could use them if you already own a Haibike)
  • The Yamaha display system is a real standout to me, this is their upgraded model with a larger LCD which is removable and you also get a remote button pad which is easy to reach while riding and it has a Micro USB port built in
  • I’m a big fan of dropper seat posts and love that the ALLMTN Plus comes with one that is preinstalled which Marc was a fan of… he’s more of a mountain biker than me and approved of the component chosen
  • Powerful hydraulic disc brakes from Magura offer the precise, smooth stopping power required for true off-road riding, note the four piston calipers and adjustable reach two-finger levers
  • Sturdy thru-axles with wider hubs using Boost Technology and quick release for easy trail maintenance and quick compact transportability, one big advantage of a mid-drive is that the drivetrain itself is more traditional and easy to work with for regular bike shops
  • The Yamaha motor produces less noise than Bosch and Impulse 3.0 in my opinion, it’s a bit less noticeable (especially when riding on a dirt trail where the tires are already making noise just from rolling)
  • The pedals you get with this Haibike aren’t half bad… I prefer the wide platform with metal pins to smaller cages which seem to get bent, the included pedals work great for test rides
  • The cockpit is well thought out, notice the negative angle stem and low-rise bars meant to approximate a flat bar while protecting the display panel in the event of a crash
  • Rather than showing your battery percentage by default, the Yamaha display uses little bars on an info-graphic but I love that they have 10 bars (for 10% steps) vs. many other bikes that show just 5 or 6, if you flip through the readouts you can also get percentage which is fantastic but that same display area can be used for odometer, trip distance etc. so I love that you have a choice
  • You can run 29ers on this ebike if you want, the standard plus sized tire in 27.5 endes up being a similar diameter but wider than some might prefer… so you can swap them out and they should fit the frame
  • Despite having a 25% larger battery capacity, the overall weight of the bike hasn’t gone up much, the battery only increased by 0.2 lbs based on my own measurements
  • The fork comes with air tokens that allow you to reduce bottoming out without raising the air pressure beyond a desired performance level, the stanchions also have a hardened DLC (diamond light coating) for smooth slick performance, it reduces stiction
  • Shadow Plus upgrade on the rear Shimano Deore XT derailleur is a one way clutch lever (that you physically click back or forward) that tightens the spring to reduce chain bounce and slap, it changes how shifting feels so it’s neat that you get the option to click it on or leave the chain looser for easier shifting

Cons:

  • I like to complain about the more limited RPM output of Yamaha’s mid-drive motor but it works very well for climbing on mountain terrain, I was able to pedal slower while maintaining balance and get a lot of torque support
  • Unlike the Bosch and Impulse drive systems, the Yamaha mid-drive doesn’t offer shift sensing which could lead to chain and sprocket mashing (especially with two derailleurs here), learn to shift as the motor cuts out… when you stop pedaling momentarily
  • The battery charger seems unnecessarily large and bulky compared with some of the other options out there, I wish Yamaha would consider the magnetic EnergyBus port vs. their plug, which pushes in, in and could get bent or knock the bike over if tripped on, the left crank arm passes it closely which makes it vulnerable
  • Haibikes tend to be more expensive and are frequently out of stock in popular sizes, we were looking at the 6.0 here even though Marc wanted to buy the 6.5 originally… it was out of stock, I feel like they spread the line thin with so many options which can be disappointing if you visit a dealer and fall in love with a specific model or feature set
  • While it’s neat to have 20 gear combinations, I don’t change the front very often and have become a fan of the lighter, less complex 1×11 setups… especially given the non shift sensing mid-drive motor systems
  • I like how smooth the motor winds down as you stop pedaling but it isn’t as instantaneous as some other systems, notice how it continues rotating a bit during the ride test in the video review above
  • Despite being a more athletic-oriented sporty electric bike, there are no bosses for adding a water bottle, you’ll probably need a hip pack or hydration backpack. Marc teased me that this can protect your back if you fall off the bike… but he didn’t realize that I never fall :P
  • Even though the tires are tubeless ready, they don’t have liners or stems that will work for this, consider having your shop tape the rims and help get them tubeless for lower PSI and lower weight performance like Marc did for his bike in this review
  • I couldn’t figure out how to turn off backlighting on the display panel, I think it’s an always-on design which could be a little distracting at night if you prefer all-dark and stealth riding
  • It seems like walk mode is disabled on the Yamaha system still, at least for the USA, perhaps someone can chime in and correct me if not? I’ve seen other brands like Bosch enable it starting in 2017

I’m curious what you mean by “twisting to connect charger” ? I have a 2016 Sduro Trekking and the plug goes straight in with arrows aligned. I think twisting would damage it.

I may be mistaken Joe, we didn’t have the charger with us and it’s possible I was confusing the push-in connector from Easy Motion which has the twist wings on it to the one for Yamaha. Thanks for chiming in, I will edit my feedback here :)

Never thought to ask before, but can this Yamaha (and bosch) be ridden as e-bikes without their displays attached? I am thinking of the night-time riding lit display situation. (Thank you for your reporting about rpm-range–I expect it may be hard for a new buyer to evaluate what’s better for them when the experience is all new and unfamiliar).

Wheel spokes: I have two 2015 XDURO Haibikes, an FS RX and an rx29. Both had spokes come loose in the first few trail rides; the FS RX's rear wheel wobbled noticeably during its third or fourth ride and I was lucky it could be trued! The first LBS I brought it to thought it was too far gone, but second opinions can be worth a few hundred bucks, minimum...

FWIW, my 2016 SDURO AllMtn Plus has had no such issues, but didn't come with DT Swiss wheels like my XDUROS did. After the above experience, however, I bought a tension meter and now check spoke tension on all my eMTBs regularly. It has proven its worth, as have the few minutes it takes to test the spokes.

@ahkim, if you're 5'-6" you should probably ride a small frame size. I am 5'-6" and I ride a small Haibike Sduro AllMtn Plus (2016). Before buying you should test ride and you MUST get fitted for the proper size.

I would recommend the 3" tire. The fatter the better off-road capability. In 2016 there was a version of the Sduro that came with 3" tires, such as my bike. They may have changed that for 2017.

Regarding Bosch vs Yamaha, both are good. Read Court's reviews of the different Haibikes that use each motor. In general, if you are a high cadence cyclist, go with Bosch. If you are a low to medium cadence cyclist, go with Yamaha (Court points out that the Yamaha motor tends to cut out at high cadence). For me, the Yamaha motor fits my riding style.

Hi Everyone

So I'm ready to pull the trigger on an ebike and I've narrowed it down to a few bikes.

Xduro FullSeven 7.0
Xduro AllMtn 7.0
Sduro All Mtn 6.5
Trek Powerfly FS 8

I'm trying to understand the differences between the bikes, here's what I know:

Xduro has Bosch vs Sduro has Yamaha motor
Xduro has 3" tire vs Sduro 2.8" tire
Obviously there are differences in the components
Xduro FullSeven has an extra cm of standover height over Sduro AllMtn

What I don’t get is the difference between the Xduro FullSeven and Xduro AllMtn. Seems like they are very similar, so why make them different lines?

Some general info:

I'll ride trails on the weekend and ride to work once a week. (14 miles to work)
I'm in Minnesota so we don't have crazy long and steep trails but we do have some good technical trail systems.
I'm 5'6"; shorter inseam so standover is going to be an issue. I'm thinking about a Medium.
I'm considering converting to Di2 XT.
There's a local bike shop that carries Haibike but I want to get some facts before I head in. I haven't tried the Haibike yet.
I've tried the Trek Powerfly and thought it was great but standover was not good.

Are there any other bikes that I should consider?

Thanks for answers, i know about e-connect ,and looks fine but i think if it get stolen it still wont be found or it will be broken. The other features i think my iphone will do, like map tracking.

I am 40 so comfort is nice, but still a hefty 1000 euro more then hardtail 7.0.

I wish i knew if the new yamaha engine pw-x is worth it, or if its something i wont notice.

My ride will be work commute 24 miles per day, so the 500 wh battery will be good.

It will also be used in free time for trails and hopefully some downhill tracks close by.

Seems 50/50 when you look youtube, but these are more advanced riders, alot seem to do fine with jumping with hardtail as well.

I wanted the 27.5 plus tires in sduro 7.0 allmtn but they didnt seem to have it home, and still 4300 euro, then this one is better on paper.

I hear about alot of service with read dampers, might be annoying, but what do i know. Its a huge investment, which mean i wont buy a car for a year to save the money used on bike. We have 1 car in family.

So I had a 2016 All Mtn Sduro SC bike.
Sold that and just got the newer year version!

Have ridden on the trails twice so far.

I think these are similar spec sduro yamaha bikes (SC 2016 = 6.0 2017).
Both yamaha.

I love the 3" plus sized tires on the 2017! I'm not a skilled rider. Only started mtn bike riding 5 months ago. It sure helps with my poor line choices when on the technical trails!!

I love the improved range on the 2017 battery. I can use the highest assist mode more often and not worry about range as much.

Biggest reason I upgraded so quick was because i'm 5'10" tall with a 33" inseam. That puts me at in between the medium and large frame mtn bikes.

My 2016 was a sized large (48cm). Since I'm now loving more technical riding, I've learned that I'm suppose to go for a bike on the smaller side. So large was not good for technical riding for me.

My 2017 is now a size medium (44cm). It's perfect! It feels so much better when going on sketchy trails where I need to really be in flow to avoid a crash and burn.

That's all i have to report for now. the 2017 All-mtn sduro 6.0 is awesome!
I'm in San Diego. Whoever else has an e-mtn bike, let's ride!

Hey guys,

I am about to pull the trigger on a Haibike Sduro AllMtn 6.0. My only concern now is choosing the right frame size. I am 6ft3 or 193 cm tall and my inside leg measurement is 34" or 85 cm. What frame size would you choose, the 19"/48 cm or the 21"/52 cm? The tyre size is 27.5".

Picture is just for attention. :)/QUOTE]

You should definitely go with 52cm frame.

Hi Folks,

I've only had my bike for 5 months now. I do quite a bit of technical trail riding that involves jumps, bunny hops, manuals and wipeouts. Haven't had any serious crashes. More of me falling off the bike then the bike crashing thus far.

I've noticed for last number of rides, my display doesn't show my speed correctly. It will show zero at times when I'm actually coasting or sometimes when I'm pedaling as well. It kinda goes down to zero, then back to the speed bike is moving. Back and forth. Like there is a loose connection.

At the times when the display speed shows ZERO, and I'm actually pedaling and moving with momentum, the motor assist provides NO assist at these times when the display shows ZERO mph. Not good when I'm pedaling/climbing uphill, on a trail that goes a long way up. I get NO ASSIST! At these times when I'm pedaling up a climb and the speeds shows ZERO, the assist level digital icon for (econo / std / high) will be blinking. When the speed shows an actual number of my moving speed, the digital icon for the assist level will remain steadily ON (without blinking).

Anyone else have this problem? Or have ideas about how much of a problem this will be to fix?

I see what you guys are saying, that it might be more sensible to buy the Trekking version, for my needs as a daily communter. You get more standard equipment for less money. The reason why I have focussed on the MTB is because I would like to have the option to use it offroad and I also think a MTB might be more suitable for a man my size, being 230-240 lbs. Don't know if the Trekking model will be too flimsy for my weight. The Trekking model is "only" 2500 usd. so we're talking a pretty big price difference, alot of money to save. Hmmm...what to do, what to do...

The Haibike Sduro 6.0 AllMtn is really a dedicated mountain bike more so than a commuter. 3 inch tires, full suspension engineered for off road. Although perfically capable of riding pavement, really not designed foe commuting. Save the money and get the trek.

It's something I haven't really considered, that I would need some kinda storage option on the bike, but it makes sense. I am not sure if either of the Haibike would accomodate that. I know its possible to install lights on the bike, wired up to the battery.

Does anyone know if the AllMtn 6.0 have the dropseat as standard and if its possible to install a mudguard on the back on a full suspension bike?
I bought a 2017 AllMtn Sduro about two weeks ago. It comes with the drop seat standard. I installed front and rear mudflaps I purchased at REI..............just cut them to fit your bike, attach with cable ties...................works well. I've put on 57 miles so far and love thee bike, especially the torque.

Got my new Haibike sduro allmtn pro Saturday and got out on it today. Smashed my best lap time of 51 mins down to 40. Can't believe I knocked 11 mins off the time. The bike rides so well, I feel like I'm 20 again.

Rockshox with EI it gets setting every 0.01 secs from front forks and motor cadence.

Hello Tisme-
I have been praying and saving up a long time to get this bike. I have spent countless hours on this forum researching and found this bike to be my ultimate pick compared to the Bulls MTB and the Spec Levo. I am so happy that I can see someone enjoying this work of art of an ebike! Congrats on your new purchase.
It is an expensive bike, but looks like is is worth every dollar spent. I love the zero cadence Yamaha motor and the EI suspension was the main selling point on this bike hands down. The European RX model also has the EI shock system, however, is unavailable in the US.

What type of riding are you doing and how do you rate this bike in comparison to other ebikes? Does the EI system feel a lot more responsive than traditional shock systems? Any thoughts concerning your new bike experience would be deeply appreciated! Take care and ride safe and have fun! :D:p

Hey everybody,

I need some advice and help choosing the right bike for me. I am going to use my new e-bike as my daily commuter to and from work, around 15 miles a day in total. I might also use the bike for some terrain driving during the weekends, but dont know how much that is going to be at this moment. I am a big guy around 230 lbs and 6ft3.

I have narrowed my choices down to two bikes from Haibike. Both with the Yamaha drive train and with 500 watt batteries.

First is the Haibike Sduro HardNine 5.5 (first picture), the second one is the Haibike Sduro AllMtn 6.0. The price difference between the two bikes is around 1000 usd, where I live.

My question is, is it overkill to spend an additional 1000 usd to get the full suspension, when I will mostly be riding the bike on tarmac, to and from work?

How much better is the riding comfort/experience with the full suspension vs. front suspension only?

Which bike would you choose of the two suggested? The price is about 3000 usd for the HardNine and 4000 usd. for the AllMtn.

I'm going to throw a wrench into this by saying both bikes you're looking at are aimed at the riding you'll do the least, if at all. I have an Sduro Trekking because, although I don't commute, I like to go on long day pavement rides with all the stuff I need. Fenders, a rack and lights covers all the bases, which would be even more important if I was counting on the bike to get me to work every day.

It has a suspension fork and wide 29er tires. Although not ideal for serious trail riding, I have ridden a bit of singletrack on it. It was kinda sketchy, but hopping off and dropping air pressure would have helped (I didn't bother). Swapping the tires for something a little nobbier would also be a benefit.

Just something to think about while you're bike shopping.

Hi Wayne, I would recommend the Easy Motion Atom Lynx 4.8 because of the highest motor torque available in the industry at 90nm. This will get you up ANY mountain bike trail & work excellent for a 250lb rider. http://www.emotionbikesusa.com/en/bicycles/ebikes/atom-lynx-4-8-27-5-pro-ur907-us.html

Great video I was waiting for more Yamaha reviews. I just don't get the 2x drivetrain I found it unnecessary just makes it more complicated for no valid reasons. Top speed is limited anyways (good luck pedaling faster when the assist cuts off) and with a 32/34T chainring you can climb walls especially in High mode. I just bought a Lapierre cross bike for my wife with Yamaha system and tested it yesterday on a 55km (40miles) loop with 620m (2000ft) elevation. 90% in Eco mode I tried Standard on couple of bigger climbs and once High but it's just too much for me. Arrived home with 38% battery left (400Wh) which is very decent range. Awesome system I just had to slow down my cadence it was the most efficient up to 70rpm - which will be perfect for my wife as she doesn't like to spin.

Juri Pasinetti

I don't know, but could be an explanation. Actually If you buy it in switzerland it's about 4200 $, but if you order it from germany it costs 3700 minus the taxes of 19% (german VAT) you're on ca. 3000$ plus the swiss VAT of 8% incl. transport and border tax you're nearly by 3700$ :)

How much taxes do you have in the US=? It's a shame with this huge price difference...

2500 watts for $25,000 payback on investment is around 100 years

NovaColonel

At least the equipment failure is unlikely. The panels themselves come with exhaustive warranties, 25 to 30 years being common. If you omit the tracking device, the only item to worry about somewhat is the inverter. That's a very limited and predictable risk, imho.

Mark S

Its a 9 year payback if your electric rate is 30 cents per kwh AND you get 365 days of sunshine per year at 10 hours per day, everyday.... And never have a single equipment failure for those 9 consecutive years... (All very unlikely)

Performance is not time-related.
2500 Watts will generate 2.5 KWhrs per, uh, hour. That's maybe 25 KWhrs per day, strongly depending on the season and place. So 2500 KWhrs per 100 days, or a little over 9125 per year.
Assuming a rate of maybe 20 cents for one KWh of electricity (no idea of the rates in the US, but generally one KWh spans from 2 or 3 cents for subsidized industries to maybe 35 cents ceiling for unsubsidized households purchasing small amounts of sustainable electricity), that's 1,800 $ per year, so after a little shy of 14 years the thing has paid for itself and after that returns pure profit. Sounds good to me.
