PhotoI just scored Specialized S Works Turbo Levo. The guy what I got it from put close to $14000 K in to the bike. Ohlins shock , Fox Factory 36 fork , Hope brakes , carbon wheels and the list goes on. Bike is so sick.Last Sunday I took it Sky park and I am totally in love with it . I can’t wait to ride it again.

Nice. Do you know if/when the battery/motor and torque/power cables were replaced?

The warranty on them restarts at replacement and the rider care team will tell you it’s transferable now, although dealers might argue so as to not deal with it.

I've got a Giant Trance E+1 Pro that I love more every time I take it out. Oh, and I sold my regular mountain bike.

Take the parts you like about mountain biking, and then make the parts you don't enjoy (like going anaerobic on big hills) out of the equation. You can change the power levels to make it as much of a workout as you want. I generally ride mine at the lowest setting. That way I'm getting a boost, but I'm also still putting work in.

Pretty good summary!

I always tell people, it's still hard, your speed just changes. What you put in is what you put in.

To me, riding more trails equals more fun. If i've got 20kays in me on a regular bike but 40 on a EMTB then how is there a discussion as to what is more fun?

Damn the Decoy looks nice! Think Airshock and 160 is a good sweet spot too.

The Kenevo is a bit of a truck for trails. I had 160 up front and a CCDB on the rear of the older Levo and it was a beast but still lively and could pump etc.

The new Levo is a completely different ride, for sure would recommend trying it out. 160 in the front does help when u put it on their.

Haha Jack loves to pull the trigger and ask questions later for sure silly . If you make it, bring a light. Probably ride into the night to grab more miles.

Yeah there are a couple in our crew. Haven't been riding enough to justify it though right now. I don't love the ohlins on the kenevo, needs more adjustment but it's not that important right now.

That shock was actually a really good coil shock. Probably one of the bests. Sadly, Ohlins CG when they did the deal with Specialized was horrible and cause of it I doubt it will be awhile till we see it specd on the bikes. The new FOX Float X2 is really good right now and hard to beat that thing.

I sold my 300, thinking of picking one of these up! There's getting to be less and less places around here to ride it sucks. I'm not about having to drive over an hour one way just to ride my dirtbike.

Love how quick MTB is too, throw it in your truck and go.

Yeah I was a bit bummed, as my previous experience with ohlins on my moto bikes was unreal!

Just feel it lacks adjustment on the Kenevo, but to be fair i'm not a lightweight either. I need more range on what adjustment it has and would be nice to have seperate hi/low rebound too. The CCDB I had on the levo was fucking amazing, had it so dialled, so controlled and calm.

Friend just put the X2 on his Kenevo, but he's a helluva lot lighter than me, not sure i'd get sag with that massive can.

I think most bike manufacturers/ parts forget about building for heavy set people. I think the Ebike area is opening more of it up and they will need to get with the program soon.

If you are over 220 I would high recommend staying coil. The X2 just started working for guys like me, still not sure how it will handle bigger guys.

One of my favorite things about it compared to moto is you can go for a good ride and be home in 2 hours from start to finish. Riding moto has always been a half of the day affair, minimum. Can get some riding in almost every day which is great.

Nice bike man! Those Crank Bros pedals are slick, I've got em on my downhill bike. I'm super jealous of those hope brakes though, I need those for suuure!
