Diode Electric Enduro Bike

Introducing the LaMere Diode electric assist 6" travel bike powered by the new Shimano E8000 motor. At only 40lbs the Diode is the lightest 6" travel eBike. 



Like all LaMere bikes the Diode can be built up just the way you want with any grouppo, wheelset, suspension, tire combo, and cockpit you want. We can also sell you just the Diode frame with complete Shimano motor, battery, and electrical system for $4300.

Shimano Drive System

The amazing new Shimano E8000 motor and drive system features nearly 100% engagement  with a completely user tunable interface. Carry an extra 5.5lb battery for longer rides and quickly swap it out with the turn of a key. Deore XT cranks with normal Q-factor and Shimano Hollowtech II bottom bracket for added strength and direct power transfer. Unlike other E-Bikes that suffer from huge lash or play in the cranks, the Shimano motor in combination with the world's best instant engagement Onyx hubs creates a fully engaged riding experience unlike any other E-Bike.
