One of the great things about Orbea because it's labeled as a light weight ebike compared to full fat enduro types is it rides more like an anolog. It clearly is more trail/all mountain at 140mm in the rear. Now I haven't ridden the carbon rise but one assumes that's even more so as its almost 10lbs lighter then my Hydro Rise. I really have no complaints at all and connected to this platform immediately, mind you I transferred over all my touch points as soon as I got it. I did upgrade my suspension front and rear. My only complaint if and is probably personal was crank length which I changed. Battery life is really good haven't come close yet and if I did die its good to know I can pedal this out unlike some of the beast available.If you don't mind the questions, you have the Orbea correct? How does it handle compared to your previous bikes?
