Just received the HAL Eboost Elite. The component spec on this bike is right in line with what I was looking for. However, being out of the mtb scene for many years, my last bike was the Turner 5 spot I was stunned at the cost of new bikes. I knew I wanted an e mtn bike but after seeing the cost of them and having the wait months on end for it had me second guessing. Look endlessy on line and came across Bikesdirect. Everything was out of stock until last week, ordered the Hal eboost elite and was delivered one week later. Took it out over he weekend and very happy with it. The suspension feels bottomless, climbs great and feels very predictable cornering. Got the assist modes dailed-in to my liking. Spent most of the time is the trail mode, boost mode is almost too much as it will spin the rear wheels on a technical, rocky climb. Assembly was pretty easy, the dropper post was kind of a pain though.

Weakness:

I’m on a new bike high, but the sizing doesn’t seem right to me. I’m 5’6” and according to their site, I needed a 38cm. I compared specs on the 38 vs the 42 and opted for the 42. Glad I did, the reach, stand over felt perfect for me. Time will tell, but for now I love the bike as it get me back into fun sport of mountain biking at a price I could afford.

Weakness:

However, the SRAM level cross country brakes are the cheapest ones they make and those just were not cutting it.

Strength:

The 29er with the shimano 6100 has been a very reliable ride for the last year. Ive accrued almost 1000 miles on it, riding a good part of that on snow and ice. Mine is an extra large as i weigh 230 lbs and am 6'2". I'm in it for fun and this bike has provided plenty on dirt, ice or pavement.The assist modes are predictable and don't overpower the natural bike ride feeling. The balance and geometry give me plenty of handling confidence and allowed this 58 year old to explore many areas i previously would not have tried to.

Weakness:

Upgrades might include pedals, grips and seat. I had to take unit to a shimano technician to get it to bluetooth with my phone - this model required an extra dongle to have mobile interface. It now will update from home instead of having to visit your LBS.
