LeMond Bicycles just announced this morning two new e-bike models and we’re still pulling our jaws off the floor over here. Check out all the info below.
Picking up where there popular Ronin gravel bike launched, the e-Ronin is an all-new Alchemy gravel bike featuring Fazua’s Evation drive system. Like its acoustic cousin, the Ronin, the e-Ronin is made by hand in Denver, Colorado. This makes the e-Ronin the first American-made carbon gravel electric bike. Making it in Denver allows Alchemy to make the e-Ronin with a custom geometry, allowing you to choose the stock paint scheme with different colors for no added cost. Head to Alchemy to check out more details!
Look, e-bikes are polarizing but over the past few months, the users I’ve met on the trail are always the ones with a physical ailment like a vet who lost feeling in his leg from shrapnel while overseas, or the woman in her 50’s who just can’t do the climb as well anymore due to a hip surgery. I think the more we realize e-bikes open the door for more users, the better off we’ll all be. Sure, there will always be people who abuse power, but I just hope the positives can outweigh the negatives. Man, that’s a lot of battery puns in one post!

These videos are too good.
It looks like e-bikes are here to stay, whether the hordes of angry cyclists like it or not. Specialized launches into their new Turbo Levo marketing campaign with quite the video. I’m really enjoying this series! Where’s the Nohlin cameo next?
Leave it to Specialized and the Coastal Crew to make a pair of e-bikes look fun. Perhaps because it doesn’t really show them “climbing?” This is for sure to open a can of worms, beat a dead horse, wash mud pies, fish in an empty barrel, checking a rooster for eggs, sweeping a dirt floor, or any number of other idioms. Regardless, that is one fun looking trail.
