Really impressive; I'd love to try a Lauf off road, but the minimal travel may not be sufficient..

The fork is for rough gravel (30mm); it's not designed for serious singletrack/off roads - need a 'real' mtb for that.

I've seen them on cyclocross bikes at Chino Hills State Park, one of my favorite places to ride (I see you're from socal, maybe not OC), but the guy(s) are young and strong.

My first ebike.
it’s a folding bike.
250w hub motor, Torque sensor without a throttle feature, 7 speed.
wow. It’s just too easy to ride. Feel like cheating haha

That is the coolest folding bike I have seen so far; all the other ones look geeky.

What's it weigh? I'm guessing around 23 lbs?

ebikes are heavy because of motor and folding bikes are extra heavy without a motor because of folding mechanism.
It’s about 39lbs. My full suspension bike is about 29lbs. I can feel much lighter for MTB but when I ride this bike, I don’t feel any weight issue except turn off the motor completely. I can feel the weight of bike when I ride uphills without power assistance.
Actual published weight is 36lbs but actual weight was around 39lbs.
lightest folding ebike (carbon frame) is about 34lbs but actual weight will be between 35-38lbs.

I am somewhat weight weenie but I don’t think I will upgrade more components to drop some weight but I received new pedal and will save about 67g hahaha.

Seatpost battery is 6lbs.
when I ride a bike, I donít feel heavy at all. I used to live one of the best bike friendly community but I move to city a year ago then I found rough pavements. I often visit to post office but I donít want to ride MTB because itís heavy and I donít want to ride road bike either because of rough pavement so I use my road bike for indoor Zwift now. Definitely I will use this bike for just cruising neighborhoods and going to post office.
hope it will last long haha.

My Riding partner Misty..she doesn't bat an eye at 10-12 mile trail rides in the Central Idaho Mountains. We stick to 2 track Forest roads or single track trails.

this is my first ebike and my road bike is around 17lbs and full suspension bike is about 29lbs so I can feel weight of 39lbs bike. I used to have 34lbs full suspension bike but I forgot about weight of bikes for a while.
I need to shave my body weight instead of bikes at this point ^___^

My Turbo Vado SL 4.0 EQ step through now has 800 miles on it. We went a little off road yesterday. Just the thing for an 85 year old. I only ride in ECO and changed the setting from 35% to 30%. Maybe I'll dial it down again to 25%.

Espin Nero

Just got this five days ago. I replaced the saddle and pedals before even test riding the bike. Even though the 25 mile ride home from the bike shop was sketchy, the bike handled it easily.
