    I'd say get on a test-ride for the Cervelo S5! It's a way nicer machine than the Felt AR from my experiences, but I've yet to touch a Giant Propel.

    I would actually say, go for the Dura-Ace. Maybe a lot more for less weight savings, but it'll last 1000% longer and handle soooooo much better. (Weight isn't the only performance in a wheelset)

    2015 Raleigh e-bike 29'er

    400861
    Quite a different experience from regular mountain-biking. It has all the torque needed to go up any hill (or do a wheelie). Thoughts on a more basic mountain e-bike?

    I'd say Scott Speedster because I've worked on and sold many bikes. Scott is BY FAR the best in quality control due to; smooth welds, lots more hydroforming, and a focus on how a frame handles. Trek...

    I voted for wheels because so many bikes have wheels that are junk compared to the other components.

    The cheap jagwire ones don't last, but if you get nice ones like SRAM slickwire (black instead of silver) they last many years and many miles.

    I suppose I should go just 7 speed if I'm going to replace components. But do they make NEW 6s SIS downtube shifters? If they're new, I doubt they'd be failing.
