Hi, is anyone know this e-stay bike? It has been powered red without any stickers.

Anyone know the make and model of this e-stay bike. Pls let me know.

Off the top of my head, a Haro Impulse springs to mind.

Alpinestars? Maybe a cheap dept store lookalike which (possibly) would be reflected in frame weight (seven or eight pounds vs five or six) and components. If that's a Manitou fork, it's not a bso.

No, it is not Haro e-stay bikes and not alpinestars al mega. This one has xt group and Mianitou fork. It looks a lot like Funk but the dropout is different and with chain stay support rods.

With an older bike I would not rule out something based on componentry.

That looks an awful lot like a Funk, but the rear dropouts are different. Only other one that comes to mind would be a Mammoth RC201 or some such. Definitely cool!
