    2018 Easy Motion Atom Lynx 6 27.5 Pro the no-brainer choice over the 2018 Turbo Levo?

    I am down to choosing between 2 bikes:

    1. Easy Motion ATOM LYNX 6 27.5 PRO (price: $5799.00 US)
    https://emotionbikesusa.com/atomx-lynx-6-pro/

    2, Specialized Turbo Levo FSR Comp 6Fattie (price: $5500.00 US)
    https://www.specialized.com/us/en/me...=240244-129008

    Both have as I understand the same motor: the new Brose Drive S.
    But the battery on the East Motion is 720 Watts, while the battery on the Specialized is only
    504 Watts.

    Larger battery size - more range.

    So does everyone agree the Easy Motion bike is the no-brainer choice over the Turbo Levo?

    Yes the 21700 cells are step above the more common 18650. Are you sure a 250 watt motor is enough oomph?

      I would like more "oomph", but all the mountain type bikes with fattie (2.8 cm) tires come only with a 250 watt motor.

      Bikes with larger motors are those "hybrid" bikes, ie, in-between a road and mountain bike, but with skinnier tires (47mm for example) and frequently 29" wheels.

      For me stability is very important; so I prefer the 2.8 cm tires (min) and the smaller 27.5" wheels. None of these bikes seem to offer a motor with more than 250 watts.
      Are you aware of any?

            Thanks! That's the bike I need... I also like the throttle, and the kickstand.

            I didn't know you could order a bike from Alibaba.
            But I would not be confident putting it together, or setting it up.

            Are you aware of a bike like that sold in bike stores?

              The bike store could assemble it at a nominal fee.

              Bear in mind I am in no way endorsing that bike but merely pointing out options. As far as I know there have been no long term tests. I didn't know alibaba was an option either but has been discussed here:
