For some people, paradise is the promised land flowing with milk and honey. For eMTB riders, its where flowing trails, bathed in sunlight, snake their way down the hills, rides end with beer on the beach and you’re surrounded by like-minded people. A place like Massa Vecchia. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1408638783102-0'); }); Paradise, Noun A place or condition of great happiness where everything is exactly as you would like it to be The bike resort of Massa Vecchia is 1.5 hours south of Florence in the heart of Tuscany, Italy, right in the middle of a region with a storied history, fascinating architecture, lovely landscapes and lots of good food! The sea is within sight, there’s an excellent gelateria wherever you turn and the incredible variety of trails will make any biker happy. But how did it come to be that the small town of Massa Marittima with its 8000 inhabitants now plays host to this bike paradise? Instead of sterile luxury, at Massa Vecchia, you’ll find heartiness and geniality Ernesto Hutmacher It all started with a vision More than 30 years ago, the Swiss Ernesto Hutmacher had a vision. After a family tragedy, he came to the realisation that there had to be more to life than working until retirement and only then being able to enjoy the time that remained. Instead, he concluded that his ultimate goal should be to live life as fully as possible every day. A daydream eventually brought the answer into focus: he would move to Tuscany, despite not speaking a word of Italian. He stumbled across a run down estate just outside the small town of Massa Marittima – Massa Vecchia. Ernesto, who had had a stint working in the Lola Formula 1 team with driver Joakim Bonnier, already rode bikes, but now began to discover what mountain biking could offer. The foundations of the place we now know and love had been placed. Massa Vecchia isn’t a hotel, it’s an El Dorado for kindred spirits Ernesto was clear on one thing quite quickly. Hotel rooms and a decent breakfast wouldn’t be enough to persuade bikers to visit. That’s why he, his team and others began building trails bit by bit in the nearby hills. In the meantime, the Trail Brothers group was founded, which now plays a significant role in building and maintaining trails in the area. In addition, Ernesto is also active in other regions to help them learn how to profit from bike tourism – but that’s a story for another time. The team recognised the potential of eMTBs years ago and has since created several uphill trails. For example, the “Spaghetti” trail winds its way up the Monte Arsenti with just as many twists and turns as its namesake. On your way, you’ll ride past the Trail Brothers hut, where you’ll be able to refill your water bottle for a small donation before the few remaining metres climbing gives way to a wide range of trails back down. If you want it fast and flowing, then ride “Scobine” or “Benedetto”, or if you like your riding a little more challenging you can turn on to “Freeride” or “Rock ‘n’ Roll”. Guided rides are offered every day for all different ability levels. From the relaxed cappuccino group who take things easy, to more ambitious riders, who might ride the complete mountain range almost exclusively on singletrack right down to the sea, there’s something for everyone here. A new route even takes you from Massa Vecchia into the historic centre of Siena. On top of that, we have to praise the excellent organisation and planning. On longer rides, you’re even offered the option of a battery swap so that you don’t run out of juice. We’d also recommend a visit to the nearby trails of Piombino or a ride to Elba – both options are offered directly from the hotel. But it’s not just the trails, the region or the hotel, that make Massa Vecchia something special. Above all, it’s the atmosphere that is so unique. It’s the people there, that fill the place with life and without exception share the same passion for riding bikes. Things are relaxed in Massa Vecchia. You’re looking in the wrong place if you want the pomp of a five-star hotel, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to forgo excellent meals. Wine from the Massa Vecchia estate, tender steaks and fresh pasta – what more could a biker’s heart desire? Instead of luxury, here you’ll find heartiness and geniality, whether it’s when you first arrive or during the high-five when you get back from your ride. As a guest at Massa Vecchia you’re not a number in a hotel room. Instead, you’re a real person. At the very latest you’ll realise what it’s really all about whilst you’re standing with your glass of red at the campfire: having a good time and enjoying and appreciating life. You’ll be able to do that in Massa Vecchia with no problems at all. It’s a true paradise on earth! Location: Massa Vecchia lies just outside the small town of Massa Marittima, around 85 km south of Florence and 45 km west of Siena, Italy. Accommodation: Rooms and holiday apartments are available in various sizes. There are also a limited number of camping spots. Best time to travel: From March to July and September to mid-November. During the winter it gets quite cold and in August it’s almost too hot. What’s on offer: Several guided rides per day, bike hire, charging, workshop and mechanic, pump track, pool, massages and lots more.

Yuba Bicycles Launches Three Transformative Products To Kick Off 2020 Information provided by Yuba Bicycles Yuba Bicycles (Yuba), a global leader in cargo bicycles and accessories, today announced three new product additions to further define its position as a forerunner in the cargo space. Designed by the team in California, these products include a new feature-packed compact cargo bike for the entry-level market, an industry-first weather-protective rear canopy for longtails rear canopy for longtail weather protection and an entirely new kickstand design to increase bike loading and unloading safety and stability. Yuba’s Pop Top Cover is the first and only longtail cargo bike rain and snow cover for kids. One of the most requested items from customers, the Pop Top Cover shields precious cargo from rain, snow and frosty winds when riding around town. It also protects passengers from strong sun in the summer and includes front/rear windows (with zippers and hook and loop straps) and easy-open side panels to let in fresh air. The new Kombi compact cargo bike was designed for those seeking to join the cargo lifestyle at the entry-level with a high-quality product that is in line with Yuba’s stellar reputation. Melding the functionality of the Yuba’s Boda Boda and Mundo models, the Kombi was designed in-house by a veteran team of engineers to give the end user the highest level of confidence in ride quality and safety. Priced under $1K and loaded with strong features, including mechanical disc brakes, puncture-resistant tires, the ability to be stored upright, and a carrying capacity of two to three kids or up to 440 lbs (including rider), this bike has already seen incredible momentum in Europe since being launched there last fall. “Our mission has always been to create the highest-quality, game-changing products that let people commute by bike and carry cargo without compromising ride quality or safety,” said Justin Gottlieb, sales and marketing director and US business leader of Yuba. “All three of these innovations are aligned with our ultimate reason for being – to limit environmental degradation by making distinct, active, boundary-pushing mobility solutions – and we’re confident about their success in North America.” Finally, the other problem Yuba solved this year is the tippy cargo bike conundrum. With a cargo bike fully loaded with stuff and/or kids, it becomes more difficult for some riders to keep the bike balanced when mounting and dismounting. Enter Yuba’s new Roots Double Kickstand.The widest longtail kickstand on the market (at 30 inches) now makes loading and unloading a heavy-laden cargo bike a breeze. Controlled by a cable-actuated hand lever within the cockpit, the Roots’ unique design eliminates the need to step off the bike to set the kickstand, increasing rider balance and safety. When ready to park, pull the lever down and each leg of the Roots drops down simultaneously, “rooting” the bike and offering unprecedented support for little riders who want to climb on and off all by themselves. When ready to ride, roll the bike forward and the Roots folds up and out of the way. See the Roots Kickstand in action!   The Kombi, priced at $999 MSRP, is available in two colors, gold and blue. The Pop Top is priced at $200 MSRP and is compatible with all Spicy Curry and Sweet Curry models. The Roots Double Kickstand is priced at $200 and is compatible with all Yuba Spicy Curry and Sweet Curry models. All three products are available for shipment to retailers now. ABOUT YUBA BICYCLES Everything we do at Yuba Bicycles is done to help change the way people commute while carrying gear, humans, pets and more. Our bikes put smiles on people’s faces as the wind hits their cheeks, as they reduce their carbon footprint and as they realize a more economical and sustainable alternative to a motorized vehicle.

We’ve set new records! More than 11,000 eMTBers from all around the world have taken part in the largest reader survey there is in the eMTB world and offered some fascinating insights. Which are the hottest brands? Which of last year’s trends have survived? Which new ones have emerged? Where, how and what does the average eMTBer ride and what do they want to ride in the future? You may ask why we conduct a reader survey every year. Our in-depth survey provides us with a reality check which lets us actively engage our readers and get feedback from them. We’re convinced that a healthy, honest and long term relationship only works if you listen to each other, take each other seriously and are willing to accommodate each other’s needs. While you might not have thought that we have a relationship – don’t worry, we’re not replacing your beloved partner (or even your beloved bike) – we’re interested in building a strong connection with you. That’s why we don’t just want to listen to you at events, on social media or through your emails but also take our yearly reader survey very seriously. This provides a representative idea of the status quo in eMTBing, your perception of different brands as well as trends and developments around the world. Of course, it also helps us to improve our own work! With more than 11,000 participants from 90 countries, who each answered around 70 individual questions, this survey isn’t just another among many. It’s the biggest and most meaningful in the eMTB world! We’re not just grateful to you, we should all be proud of this achievement! Your feedback on brands, preferences, trends, problems and questions serves as an important guide to help us plan our tests and features. Your feedback also helps us continuously improve our app and website. But it’s not just us that profit from the results. Lots of well-known manufacturers benefit from the anonymised results of our survey. That means your feedback doesn’t only feed into the direction that E-MOUNTAINBIKE takes but also helps steer developments in the whole eMTB sector. Who is our average eMTBer? Among the 11,000 participants, 219 Michaels comprised the most commonly occuring name, closely followed by 210 Thomases and 185 Andreases. But of course, luckily it’s not about you as a brand but about you and your preferences and what you find important about eMTBing. The average E-MOUNTAINBIKE reader is 48 years old and has an income of € 74,918. That’s € 2,000 less than last year, though we see this as a positive trend. It demonstrates that high-value eMTBs are of increasing interest to the mass market and that the variety of financing options becoming available lower the barrier for entry. However, it’s clear that the household income of E-MOUNTAINBIKE readers is far above average. Most of you are riding Haibike, Specialized or CUBE eMTBs. On average, you own your bike for 17 months and have spent € 4,461 on it. Take your bike on holiday A solid 45% of you have already taken your eMTB on holiday and 34% of you are planning to do so in the future. On average, you had 7.7 days of holiday with your bike and in 34% of cases your trip destination was inspired by our articles. The Alps, in particular the region around Lake Garda, were by far the most popular destination. Nonetheless, Scotland and Wales are increasingly on the radar as a destination. On average, you spent € 202 per day while on holiday. In addition, lots of you are interested in good food, coffee and wine. High time for us to produce more lifestyle and food features? Well, we’re not complaining! What makes you ride an eMTB? The biggest motivating factor for most of you to get out on your eMTB is having fun! We think that’s great. It’s also important for lots of you to be able to cover longer distances as well as having the opportunity to balance out different fitness levels in groups. For many of you, eMTBs enable you to get out on your bike again, where you couldn’t with an unpowered bike. In addition, commuters who are looking for a healthy, affordable and environmentally friendly alternative to a car, enjoy using ebikes as a sweat-free means of getting to work. You love your bikes – at least most of the time! We gave you the opportunity to rate your eMTB on a scale of 0 (not at all satisfied) to 5 (completely satisfied). With an average satisfaction rating of 4.23, we can draw the conclusion that most of you are pretty happy with your bike. A few brands are particularly prominent in the rankings. The top 3 are: Thömus (4.64), Norco (4.59) and MERIDA (4.56). As a new player on the ebike market, YT have made a strong statement claiming fifth place. Of course, YT also benefit from the fact that their ebikes are brand new. It will be interesting to see if user satisfaction stays at the same high level when the bikes have a few seasons behind them. There’s an app for that! We’re especially pleased that you’re not just happy with your bikes but also with our magazine app that you’re using more than ever before. A whole 46% of survey participants regularly use the app. So if you’re one of the people who usually read our content through the website, why not try our free Android or iOS app. It’s the best way to read E-MOUNTAINBIKE, especially on a tablet! And our Instagram is constantly increasing in popularity. How do you use your eMTB? A big appeal of eMTBs is their versatility, which is reflected in how you use your bikes. Apart from mountain biking, 44% of you also use your bike in your everyday lives. The terrain on which you ride is just as variable. 29% of you ride mainly on forest tracks, around 30% of you love easy trails and 23% of you are at home on technical trails with jumps, roots and rocks. 14% enjoy steep technical uphill trails the most. In terms of the length of your rides, 59% of you go out for between 30 and 49 km. 24% of rides are shorter than 30 km and 16% are between 50 and 80 km. Independent of the motor fitted to your ebike, most of you ride in the lowest assistance mode. Only about 5% primarily use the most powerful assistance mode. That also explains why for most of you, range is never really an issue as you’ll rarely hit the limits of your battery. Only 21% of you own a second battery. eMTB only? Another interesting question is whether you’re also using an unpowered mountain bike alongside your eMTB. 53% of you are and regularly ride a normal mountain bike. 35% used to ride a normal mountain bike but now almost exclusively ride an eMTB. For 12% of you, your eMTB is the first step into the cycling world. At this point it’s interesting to take a look at which bikes you actually own as it turns out many of our readers don’t actually own an eMTB yet. 63% of you own an unpowered mountain bike. 48% of you own a full suspension eMTB and 15% of you own an eMTB hardtail. Other types of ebikes, such as urban ebikes or E-road bikes comprise around 10% of the bikes you own. 22% of you own generic road bikes. Top 10 – the most ridden eMTB brands The top 3 brands haven’t changed since last year, but the frontrunner Haibike has had to give up 8% of the reader market share. The winners include MERIDA, who have gained 1% and climbed three positions, securing fourth place in the rankings. Canyon have made it to the top 10 in their second year selling eMTBs while SCOTT have lost significantly this year. With a 1% loss in market share, they’ve dropped two places. What will you have next? In terms of the next brand you’ll purchase, Haibike (18%), Specialized (16%) and YT Industries (15%) dominate. Will we see YT in the top 10 of most ridden eMTBs next year? For your next bike, on average you plan to spend € 5,055, while last year it was only € 4,341. Top 5 – the most popular eMTB motors In terms of eMTB motors, Shimano have climbed the ranks by two places and are now in second place behind Bosch, who despite losing 6 % are still solidly ahead of the competition with 40 % of the market.Yamaha motors have lost a lot of market share and will likely continue to do so next year as only about 3% of you want a Yamaha motor fitted to your next bike. Your favourite eMTB brands – best brands 2019! As is our tradition, we asked you which brands and manufacturers you think are making the best eMTBs, motors and components. While individually your answers are of course subjective – after all, not many people have the opportunity to test and compare many products – overall your evaluations sum up to an indicative picture of which brands have done the best job in the last season and fostered the most trust. With more than 11,000 participants, they are the result of the biggest and most representative survey of the eMTB world.The brands who have placed right at the top for your choice of best brand can be sure that their mix of brand image, product range, marketing and product performance have convinced and impressed our readers. Clear winners this year are Specialized whose share of the vote has increased by 11% and in turn have cemented their place as E-MOUNTAINBIKE Best Brand. YT have also made strong gains securing third place right off the bat. Best eMTB motor brand Regarding motors, the competition for the top spot was very exciting. While Brose was the clear winner at the beginning of the survey with 40% of the vote, Bosch caught up significantly after introducing their new Performance CX motor in June 2019 and in the end took the top spot with 36% of votes. However, in comparison to last year Bosch have lost 9% of the vote. Brose has gained 13% of the share and now sits at around 31%. The two top motors are now separated by just 5% of the vote. Yamaha have fallen out of favour and last years vote share of 10% has now shrunk to 6%. Lucky winners We are pleased that we not only get to know you a little better every year, but that we also have the opportunity to reward a lucky few of our readers. Together with our competition partners Haibike and YT, we’ve handed out prizes totalling more than € 15,000 in value. The lucky winners are: Haibike XDURO NDURO 10.0 FLYON: Stefan, Germany YT DECOY CF Pro Race: Thorsten, Germany Thanks again to all of you for your incredible support, participation and engagement!

OYAMA TWO-WHEEL DRIVE Read The EBA Bike Review: Oyama 2WD Bike I read your review on the preproduction Oyama 2WD with great interest. While drooling over the possibilities and my desire to purchase one, an idea that I believe would greatly improve the design awakened: What if the design team were to offer the front-wheel-drive as an on/off mode like a four-wheel-drive vehicle? It could be ridden with rear-wheel drive, possibly saving battery life, and then with the flip of a switch—voila!—add front-wheel drive! I tried calling the company to share this idea, but got nowhere. Perhaps you could share this notion with them? Roger Snyder Christini Bicycles AWD Bike Roger, that’s an interesting idea in theory. I’m not 100-percent sure when that bike is going into production, but that would be something that could be programmed in, or it might have to have a hard switch externally. As far as a two-wheel-drive bike; the only one we know of that comes close is that being developed by Christini, who are already years-in with the production of a two-wheeled-drive motorcycle.

MERIDA have released two new, attractively priced aluminium models in their eMTB range: the 2020 eONE-SIXTY LIMITED EDITION and the 2020 eONE-FORTY LIMITED EDITION, both featuring Shimano’s STEPS E8000 motor. Read on for all the details on the models and our recommendations for the eONE-SIXTY models. MERIDA eONE-SIXTY Limited Edition | Shimano E8000/504 Wh | 160 mm/150 mm (f/r) | € 4,699 | manufacturer website googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1408638783102-0'); }); Our latest group test of the 25 hottest 2020 models proved that the MERIDA eONE-SIXTY 10K is one of the best performing eMTBs currently on the market. However, with a price point of around € 10,000 for the flagship model, it will remain a dream for many of us. Up until now, the most affordable model in the eONE-SIXTY range was the eONE SIXTY 5000 for € 5,099, but that comes specced with the somewhat weaker Shimano STEPS E7000 motor. Having said that, the “but” should be put into context since the STEPS E7000 is by no means bad: you can read all about it and its more powerful brother, the STEPS E8000, in our motor group test. If you wanted an eONE SIXTY with the Shimano STEPS E8000 nonetheless, you would have had to go for the MERIDA eONE-SIXTY 8000, which costs € 6,199. However, MERIDA have now released the eONE-SIXTY Limited Edition, which comes with an aluminium frame instead of carbon fibre and costs just € 4,699, with spec similar to the eONE-SIXTY 8000. That’s € 1,500 less – where’s the catch? MERIDA eONE-SIXTY Limited Edition in detail Even though we haven’t yet been able to ride it, there’s no catch as far as we can see. The MERIDA eONE-SIXTY Limited Edition comes with a modern hydroformed aluminium frame and has the same features as the more expensive carbon variants: the stylish Thermo Gate on the head tube, MX wheel concept, Shimano STEPS E8000 motor with a removable 504 Wh integrated Shimano BT8035 battery, MERIDA EXPERT eTR cockpit, Allen key integrated in the thru-axle for the most common bolts on the bike and a generously sized chainstay guard, which, in conjunction with the internal cable routing, should keep the bike nice and quiet. Motor Shimano E8000 Battery Shimano E8035/504 Wh Fork Rock Shox 35 Gold RL Rear shock Rock Shox Super Deluxe Select+ Drivetrain Shimano XT RDM8100 Shadow+ Brakes Shimano MT-520/Shimano MT-500 Handlebar MERIDA EXPERT eTR Stems MERIDA EXPERT eTR Rims MERIDA COMP TR Hubs Shimano MT400-B / Shimano MT510-B Tires Maxxis Assegai / Maxxis DHR II Seatpost MERIDA COMP TR Weight 23.51 kg In terms of spec, the eONE-SIXTY Limited Edition is similar but not quite on par with its € 1,500 more expensive carbon counterpart. For example, the eONE-SIXTY Limited Edition has to make do with a mix of two- and four-piston brakes, as well as a lower end shifter, saddle and dropper post. They aren’t specced with the same fork and wheels either. MERIDA haven’t yet released any information on the weight of the aluminium model. MERIDA eONE-FORTY Limited Edition in detail MERIDA eONE-FORTY Limited Edition | Shimano E8000/504 Wh | 140 mm/133 mm (f/r) | € 4,699 | manufacturer website googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1408638783102-1'); }); Das MERIDA eONE-FORTY ist nun auch als Aluminium-Version verfügbar, trägt ebenfalls den Zusatz „Limited Edition” im Namen und besitzt die gleichen technischen Features wie sein größerer Bruder, das eONE-SIXTY. Worin die Unterschiede zwischen dem eONE-FORTY und dem eONE-SIXTY liegen, haben wir in diesem Vergleich der Carbon-Modelle herausgearbeitet. The MERIDA eONE-FORTY is now also available as a “Limited Edition” aluminium version and has the same technical features as its bigger brother, the eONE-SIXTY. We found out the differences between the eONE-FORTY and the eONE-SIXTY when we compared the carbon models. Motor Shimano E8000 Battery Shimano E8035/504 Wh Fork Rock Shox 35 Gold RL Rear shock Rock Shox Super Deluxe Select+ Drivetrain Shimano XT RDM8100 Shadow+ Brakes Shimano MT-520/Shimano MT-500 Handlebar MERIDA EXPERT eTR Stems MERIDA EXPERT eTR Rims MERIDA COMP TR Hubs Shimano MT400-B / Shimano MT510-B Tires Maxxis DHF / Maxxis DHR II Seatpost MERIDA COMP TR Weight 23.51 kg If you want to know more about what goes on at MERIDA, we were on a factory visit in Taiwan last year and had an exclusive behind the scenes look at the production of the eONE-SIXTY. Our Conclusion of the all-new Merida bikes We think it’s good that MERIDA have added the eONE-SIXTY Limited Edition and the eONE-FORTY Limited Edition to their range of eMTBs, both of which are interesting options technically and economically. If you can do without the “prestige” of carbon, you are guaranteed to have just as much fun on the Limited Edition models. However, we find the “Limited Edition” model name referring to the aluminium version a bit misleading, since one would expect that to be the flagship model or a very fancy and special version.

Spurcycle’s Hip Pack Product information provided by Spurcycle Nick Slone, Spurcycle’s co-founder and COO, wasn’t satisfied with the bag he was using while riding. “Usually the development projects we work on consider a broad range of users and attempt to balance various criteria related to successful commercialization. With this, I just wanted to build a better bag for myself. It was a pet project, something I wanted to do because I could. Since moving to Bend, I’ve been spending lots of time on the mountain bike and will be back on my skate skis soon. This bag is perfect—just what I wanted… and hopefully something others will like as much as I do.” Spurcycle’s version of yesteryear’s fanny-pack has been transformed using ultra-modern materials and coined simply Hip Pack. Like many of the brand’s products, the Hip Pack is made in the USA and uses top-of-the-line materials (Dyneema and X-pac fabrics) to yield a technical yet simple and lightweight pack (250 grams). The four-liter-in-volume Hip Pack will hold a half-day’s supplies and is shaped for secure trail carry. The heavy-duty zipper closure provides one-handed access and the inner perimeter features four pockets for easy access to nutrition or tools. An internal zipper pocket keeps phone and other valuables secure and a lanyard puts keys where you can find you them after a long adventure. Lastly, the pack’s external shock cord provides a convenient place to stash a vest, arm warmers, or even a backup water bottle. Spurcycle’s Hip Pack will retail for $135 and is available now at spurcycle.com . It should be stocked and available through Spurcycle’s dealer network by mid-December. Spurcycle’s Hip Pack is the most recent collaboration of brothers Nick and Clint Slone, following the Spurcycle Bell, Key Clip, Multi Pouch, Multi Tool and Saddle Bag. Their focus—in addition to meticulous design—is to create products that don’t require a slick sales pitch but which encourage blatant favoritism. Spurcycle goods are sold through independent bike shops, REI, Backcountry or direct via www.spurycle.com THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO GET ELECTRIC BIKE ACTION In print, from the Apple newsstand, or on your Android device, from Google.
