We're proud to announce our new Diode which is one of the only Shimano E8000 motor AllMtn electric bikes in the USA, with full carbon 27.5+ frame and a total weight of just 43lbs! The bike is as maneuverable as a normal bike on the trails but of course way faster on XC and uphill sections, and is finally what you want from an eBike experience. Shimano motor is unrivaled in power and weight and features near instant engagement just like the Onyx hubs, so no annoying lash like the cranksets in all other eBikes. World's best Ohlins front fork, along with the new Fox trunnion mount rear shock, carbon 50mm tubeless rims with 3" tires, and carbon cockpit make this the most fun we have ever had doing any kind of biking. Catching air on XC sections, flying on uphills, bursting out of corners with a slight wheelie, this bike will improve your riding ability big time and is definitely the most fun you can have on a bicycle!

All the bicycle parts can be replaced or upgraded, but we are stuck with the OEM battery: so how big is yours and how much for a spare?
$9500 bucks. Ouch, nice bike but for that money I’d go with the Pivot shuttle.
Flying uphills? At a danger to other trail users? Hmmm. What I want out an e bike experience? Commute. This e bike is a class one, 250 watts?
Not true, every 250w ebike allows you to fly up hills effortlessly. Hell, I gotta scrub the jumps backwards and if I go too fast uphill I might roost somebody...
Your website is useless. $9500 for a bike that you don't even list the build spec on.
Or you could buy two of the new Bikes Direct eMTBs and buy a used pickup with the leftover cash.......

It's the same motor and probably the same battery for $3500, just a few kilos heavier.
Here's the build spec below....we don't have it on the website yet we've been too busy building bikes and riding them but we will get that all up there soon....

250w battery, and we sell spares for $600 but less if you buy a spare with the bike.
Yeah, I’ve owned 3 Turbo Levo’s. But glad you can tell. Why don’t you do some reading on an ebike forum your advertising your bikes on? The Pivot shuttle would be my pick. Balsy build at $9500. I’m sorry, what’s your name?
Oh yeah, forgot to tell you my brother owns a Surface 604, my other brother a Haibike xduro, my best friend also owns a Levo and I own 4 Speshy Turbo road bikes, I’ve been around a few, but honestly still prefer my normal mtb. (For now)
Sorry to rile you up there Gutch, I just figured you have not actually been on an eBike as you were talking about roosting on the uphills in your post, which does not happen with 250w eBikes as you know, and talk like that gives eBikes a worse name than they already have. Now that I re-read your post I see that's not exactly what you're saying, not sure what you are saying but anyway this is JP owner of LaMere Cycles so yeah I'm biased on our bike over the Pivot Shuttle as ours is actually available in the USA now and is $3000 less, and you can carry an extra battery with you and swap it mid-ride. Plus ours comes with the Ohlins front fork, XT Di2, 50mm carbon rims and weighs just 42lbs. We sell direct so our price is a lot less, and you can customize it exactly how you want right down to the nipples.

Just curious why 3 Turbo Levo's, you just getting the new models or your friends are stealing them from you or what?
Yeah, I was being sarcastic about the roost comment. If you follow these threads here since I have almost since inception of “E bike” sub forum, you will notice the largest argument is closing speeds with ebikers going up and mtb riders coming down. If you jump in here and promote your bike the last thing people want to hear is how fast it goes uphill.
Keep in mind most posters here don’t own Ebikes and may have only demoed one in the parking lot. So, bought my road turbo’s in 2016. Bought my Turbo Levo Expert, first one, sold it cause didn’t get ridden enough. Bought second one for the beach, lots of fun but sold it and put monies into a mtb. My buddy owns a Specialized shop and just scored a 17 comp like BN demo for under 2k.
