    Loving mine, Alloy 2022 Trek Rail 9.. put 5000km on my old Trek LT9 before deciding to trade up.
    If it's your first maybe give the 2nd hand market a look. Mine was 8.1k new (2019 model) and sold it to a friend at mates rates for 4.5k.
    they can be very expensive, mine was 11k. I ride with a guy who spent 22k on his

            Merida E160 900E must be about 3 years old? Still going strong. Bought a new charger out of warranty - $200
            I'm on my 3rd rear cassette/chain, but it's only 2nd gear that f's out. -$145 each, plus a chain.
            Put new tyres on - way better than the original Maxxis. Schwalbes special for eMTB
            Been through rotors and pads on the front and just pads on the back.

            Ya just ride more.

              Loving my Cannondale.

              As others have said, you ride more, further, longer at a faster average.

                My van seems the pipe-dream atm.
                Still a possibility in relative physics.

                My bed will be 4ft high:- Bike under.
                Plan bike to upgrade its battery too.

                  Canondale and Trek seem to be the go. I see the Trek Powerfly 4 is $5200 but if you want rear suspension its $7200, and thats the cheapest, base Canon is $7999.

                    My whole point in my post below... Plan to install new/replacement batteries as tech improves:
                    Yes; new replacement batteries cost heaps... Still less than a new motor; that can't spin grunt.

                      If you want electric, and want to do it on the cheap, look at a Bafang motor that fits to a standard bottom bracket. They go good. Pick up a second hand older school analogue dualie and fit it yourself.

                      The Bafang dual emtb that is a special order is expensive but excellent apparently.

                      Bafang motors are unrestricted too

                              I've got a mate who's got one, they go good. They even have a throttle like a moto too if you don't even want to pedal
