Well it has finally happened and Specialized have jumped on the electric mountain bike bandwagon with the Specialized Turbo Levo.
We guess that makes it a thing now but we much preferred it when it was still companies like HaiBike who were doing this kind of thing.
Once the big S has gotten involved in a market then “marketing bull” and blandness will ensue. Look at the fatbike market, once the sole preserve of Surly, now everyone has one.
Anyway rant over, do you think that the guys from Dirt are right and that electric mountain bikes are now a thing or can you think of a reason why it wont work in your neck of the woods.
We will stick our necks out and say we don’t mind electric mountain bikes and we can see a lot of benefits to them but….please…no….not a Specialized one.
