I recently bought my wife and I a Levo each. We went for the entry level bike that retails for R65K. I negotiated a 10% discount and used the discount to upgrade the bikes. Wife's bike I added a spez dropper, grips and did a tubeless conversation. Mine, I added a 160mm Yari, reverb dropper, Saint brakes, grips and tubeless. Surprisingly with 10mm more travel upfront I don't have pedal strike. My wife is light and she doesn't complain about it either. Since owning a Levo, I tell my friends if you can't afford it, don't test ride it. You're sure to want on if you do. We were riding on average around 40km over the weekend, we are now doing around 80km. I get around 40km on a charge, my wife only uses 60%, she would easily get 60+ Kms. Cost of ownership, time will tell, I carry a spare chain with me + the normal. I haven't ridden my Pyga since getting the Levo, riding the Levo is a blast. Pyga will be in the classified soon along with my wife's Merida.
