A fair bit of arguing by email and it’s going back. Wouldn’t use them again.

Gone completely off piste and ordered a Y-T :cool:

Cancel that 🤣

The YT delivery continues to be pushed back and potentially into next year and I want to get out, so cancelled the order and trawled the bike shops this week. Glad to report I found a cracker, now being prepped and wrapped, to land with be in time for a weekend ride.

Its a british one too - a Whyte E-180RS 2022 V3...

Oooosh, that's nice, I prefer the YT, but this is British so respect!

Well, it's completed its maiden journey and I enjoyed it immensely.

I knew what route I wanted to take, to experience road, trail and some bumpy bits and it ended up only 8 miles, but now feel I've got used to the bike.

We need a MTB thread :)

Looks nice that, as I shudder with the frame resting on that pole !! I know that can't move, but I did that on a Pinarello Dogma F10 to take a picture and it moved forward in the wind and scraped the paint off the top tube !

Does the Motor make it more fun ?

Get an MTB thread up, be nice to have a look at some bikes. If you didn't know I am a bit partial to good old photos being posted !

It's PPF'd mate, or that pole would not have featured!

The motor is an odd one.

You want to drop a gear or two, but can just up the assist instead. I suppose I will get used to using both as I get more miles on.

They're heavy, so the more fun but depends what you do. I wouldn't have covered the same miles with no motor, so for me, yes.
