The comments about how the suspension works on heavier frames (like eMTBs) are really interesting and consistent with what I recently experienced when I demoed an eeb for the first time. I rode a Specialized Levo SL with "mid-range" suspension components (Fox Rhythm 34 fork and dps shock) that I didn't really take the time to set up before riding. I normally ride a 2021 Factory 36 grip2 and factory dpx 2 (well loved and recently serviced) on my own bike. I couldn't believe how good the suspension on the Levo SL felt to me, even though I could feel the fork flexing under me. The bike just had sooooo much grip everywhere, but especially in the corners, and felt so stable, even with drastically shorter reach than what I'm used to. I couldn't put my thumb on it but now I'm thinking it had a lot to do with the fact that the Levo SL has at least 5 pounds more sprung weight than my normal bike. It was eye opening.
