I am in the process of upgrading a couple of options on this bike and I will post my about that when I have finished the job. The parts are on the way from Ireland as I type. If the packages hit Australia and then requires Australia Post to deliver them, I then fear they will be sometime away. We shall see.
I've ridden this bike a lot already and it is very smooth to ride. It rolls well and the build quality it very good as I expected. The motor is responsive and delivers a quick acceleration to the max speed (one area I am *cough* working on now to *cough* improve....). As some of the deore componants wear out, I will upgrade them to XT standard as I am used to a slightly more precise shiftier and breaking experience. At higher speeds the XT brakes will be important.
More to come as I finish the upgrades.....A big thank you to John at Dolomiti Electric Bikes for his help organising this.
