    What do you do with the old bikes which you own? I will like to try them out all the way from South Africa 🇿🇦

    I bought it and changed the bar, the pedals and the tires (27.5×3.0) .Front wheel accept 3.8 fat bike tires but rear wheel not. I have a lot of fun with this bike !

    If you budget of £2700 isn’t it better to go for an older model bike? serious question .
    I paid £2800 in 2019 for a bike 2017 model that retailed at the time £4500 .Sure i missed out on the Latest model but i got a brand new bike and almost 2k better off !
    Its alway a good idea of checking the large on line stores at the beginning and end of each year to get your self a bargain

  5. My friend has a haro. Believe it’s the same bike and it rips.

  6. At 3k€ that’s hardly the cheapest bike one can find, that’s still quite a lot of money. Enough for a decent motorcycle event.

    Beet bang for the buck? Maybe.
    Cheapest? Certainly not!

  7. Nice review are these available in the United States. Whats the price point in US $$$. Does BOSCH has an option to add a throttle assist ? Do you know the weight of the bike?

    I got mine for £571 it is a swifty E-bike, cannot wait to try it

  9. Fair and good video. It is sad that they did the geometry like this. Other e bikes have long chain stays, too. And you can find other brands with short reach, long chainstay and high seat tube, too. Some of them have a slack set tube angle, too, because of the short reach.

    It is sad because some bikes with a messed up geometry could be far better. Idk why. The number of travel makes it clear what this bike is for and how the geo should be.

    I would pay 50€ more for a better geometry.

  10. * SX user over here* first and second upgrade , nx eagle der and shifter , sx one’s are pretty bad

  11. this price clearly shows how other brands rip off customers.. Most of the bikes are 100-200% overpriced and what is worse this bikes lose value very fast.. You buy a electric mid drive for 5k Euro, and after two years when guarantee ends and market shows another version of the motor, which is more reliable, has better specs etc, your bike is now somewhere 2k-3k euro.. It is very hard to sell +2 years old mid drive electric bike without any guarantee..

    I would be all over this, it has everything I want for £1k less that I was going to spend. Can’t see it anywhere on decathlon’s website though ? ( not even the bike with a “out of stock” status )

  13. rcfanaticdublin March 6, 2021 @ 10:07 pm

    Not Cheap!!!

  14. Bloody hell, that is not the cheapest, have you gone bonkers?!

  15. $5,298 in Australia

  16. It’s like taking home the local fatty from the pub, she (or he) may not be the best looker but you can still have an awesome time.

  17. I live in Miami Florida so I freaked out hearing 2699 pounds thinking that was the weight of the bike. lol

  18. I hate this super wide bar fad. My local single track is now wide enough to drive a car down. They keep cutting trees down on the sides of the trails. Probably because of people with bars 3 feet wide. Totally ruins the trail.

    before building the Seroxat 1000W Mid-Drive on my channel I highly considered this bike. I think the Seroxat Bafang G510 mid-drive kit is a beast of a bike. Not as light as this but easily double the power for only $3500. Check it out on my channel.

  20. They dont sell this anymore??

  21. Rhi Leadbeater March 6, 2021 @ 10:17 pm

    Great vid thanks for posting. What speed can this bike get up to and what speed does the Bosch motor cut out? Thanks!

  22. What other manufacturers use this frame? Probably be better if you mullet it

  23. What are the clear lens glasses you use? I need to buy something for the old eyeballs

  24. Marvin Westmaas March 6, 2021 @ 10:20 pm

    cheapest? lmao it’s about twice as expensive as the ACTUAL cheapest emtb’s you can get.

  25. Check out the Motobecane.

  26. But ya can’t buy it anywhere anymore :0(

  27. Looking for a budget eMTB? Look no further than CYBERBIKE! Imagine a quality eMTB with quality components – even 27.5/29 Mullet – for just $2499 US! Go here: https://cyberbike.us/products/cyberbike-f-sport?variant=34741714976812

  28. Great deal, but let’s be honest mate, it isn’t the cheapest emtb you can get.
    It may be the cheapest new full suspension mid drive emtb!

  29. Great video, it’s just a shame the bike isn’t on their website, even though there are other bikes on there that are listed as out of stock, grrrr.

  30. For that money you think it will have mud guards and light s

  31. Just been on their website and not even listed !

  32. Finally emtb that is well priced , with decent equipment. I refuse to pay motorbike money for a motorised bicycle , I know some will disagree with me but there is no way that £9000 price for some bicycles can be justified , this bike is priced under 3k how much more should it cost with better suspension , bigger wheels and few minor upgrades to make it high end ?
    1500 to 2000 max , if anyone charges more they are ripping you off , but it’s your money your choice .
    I really like what decathlon did here , the only problem for me is the size
    I am 1 size too big for this bike I wish there was a bigger size available ,
    Otherwise I would have no problem buying this .

  33. Is that cheap 🤔

  34. it’s as if this thing never existed. cant find any trace of the Stilus online and Decathlon have removed the item from the website..
    Anybody have an update?

  35. Chancellor Gulley March 6, 2021 @ 10:34 pm

    Man I wish I could find one these in the USA

  36. Rob Rides EMTB March 6, 2021 @ 10:37 pm

    £2699! Amazing to see these bikes getting more affordable. Would you buy it?

  37. is this still the cheapest emtn bike?

  38. Goddess in Training March 6, 2021 @ 10:43 pm

    Here I am looking at one in a Walmart ad for $398 🤔

  39. theshadowcrazy March 6, 2021 @ 10:45 pm

    Nice video! I don’t see the bike on the website? I think they sold it out?

  40. Julian Gregory March 6, 2021 @ 10:46 pm

    Clearly never heard of haibike and cube they have quality E-Mtb’s sub £2000.

  41. When you get a new fork you should get it in 29er. It rake out the front end a little bit, and make it more stable going downhill.

  42. No longer available? It’s not on the Decathalon web site and it’s only November. For a bit more money you could buy a Luna X1 with the Bafang motor and better kit. Rob you should test one. This was a great test though.👍

  43. BryceLovesTech March 6, 2021 @ 10:51 pm

    Looks like a Motobecane Bikesdirect frame?

  44. Norman Kennedy March 6, 2021 @ 10:53 pm

    Rob you still got this bike ?

  45. letsall getalong March 6, 2021 @ 10:53 pm

    I’m a purest, E bikes are for old people or people with injuries, if you don’t want to exert yourself buy a crosser or something of the sort, just another thing to make people lazier! Lol

  46. $3,400 for a mid drive full suspension 27"… It is a fair setup, but I still wouldn’t call $3,400 "cheap" it may be what you consider cheap, but in relevance to the depth of my pockets not cheap.

  47. Looks similar to a cube frame

  48. I hope you don’t meet walkers on those paths you are tearing down.

  49. Amazon and other sites list plenty of Electric Mountain Bikes at 1/3 to 1/4 the price of this "CHEAPEST Electric Mountain Bike".
    How did you manage to skip all those and call this one the cheapest?

  50. Mikkel Horslev March 6, 2021 @ 10:57 pm

    Where can i buy one?
