It’s a gnarly bike. I have a Canyon Ebike too. This is the better riding bike, better spec, and about 2k less expensive. Highly recommend. I used to laugh at Ebikes until I rode one. Same amount of effort on the ride, I just get to go three to four times the distance. There is quite a bit of elevation change here, it comes in handy.
We rock 4x4 trails on them (or any trail for that matter) passing side by sides and trucks like they are standing still. They hate it.

Thanks. It's taken a while to get the builds sorted the way I want. Practically perfect now, they both ride exactly how I want except for the saddle on the Commencal and the front tire on the Status. Gonna try an Assegai tire, not sure what saddle to try next.

And nah no trials bike. I gave my bike to my mate. Too hard on my body, had heaps of weird injuries the last 4 years that i've got from just doing normal stuff, all tendon and ligament stuff that's taken ages to heal. So I'm avoiding the weird sports. He's enjoying hopping around like an asshole though so I'm glad it's being used.

Currently trolling OTN because I hurt my knee in Feb and I'm off work, really starting to get to the bottom of the barrel in terms of entertainment :whistle:

I love this thread. Sold this bike recently. Surly Cross Check. Had a carbon riser chopped down a bit to fit through traffic. Low rider rack and mini panniers for tons of S24O. Later I added a sweet handlebar basket. Camped in every state park within 100 miles of Seattle, getting to/from on this bike. I'm moving cross country via sedan in a few weeks and have to get rid of a lot of things. When I leave everything I own will fit in a Prius. There will be 3 bikes on a trunk rack and one more waiting for me in my new home.

Riding 65 miles of killer hilly gravel in The Dalles, Oregon. 2015 ish?

Dalles is legit. Officially unofficial ride used to happen every year (probably still does). For those willing to do a bit of trespassing the route includes this epic descent:
