Shit! So the record is already broken then. If there was an official from Guinness there at least it would be. I think it was 78 feet. Well bloody done!

So how big is that last jump Andrew flipped?! Considering that Zink is trying to flip 100ft... if this isn't in the ballpark of 100ft then what the hell is that going to look like!? Insanity....

I hope he stopped for some 'refreshments' along the way.

The scariest part of the heat map is that there are clearly more people riding road than mountain!?!?! Nooooooooo........

I've found so many trails in my local area thanks to Strava. I understand that some people want to keep certain trails secret and that should be respected, but like it has been said before, this is not Strava's fault. Someone had to create the segment ... more ยป

Maybe they should add an element of "Speed and Style"? If you backflip the 60 footer you get a bonus 30 seconds!

I hear what you are saying, and I agree. The people that want bikers off the trails don't care what excuse they need to use to do it. They will invent one.

So my point is still valid I think: it's not this type of bike that will cause issues. They might as well be saying "29" wheels are causing more damage, get rid of the bikes!". It's misleading and false. Saying these types of bikes are any more of an issue on trails is also misleading and false.

I expect that from anti-bike groups, I don't expect that from fellow mountain bikers. It's just a bit sad is all...

Yeah, I have to agree that I don't see this sort of bike becoming main stream in Australia anytime soon. But then again, it appears as if the Aussie groms still believe Rockshox and Fox are the only 2 suspension companies out there

This particular company (Haibike) is German. They make a massive range of E-Bikes (as do a ton of other European bike manufacturers).

Pedal assist bikes seem to be quite popular in Europe as well. My feeling is that America, Australia, New Zealand etc. are a bit behind when it comes to this sort of thing.

I did notice KTM are also getting in on this and are distributing in Australia.

So what I understood from your comment is that people with their own agendas will say whatever they can, whether that is true or not, to further their own goals. Nothing new there...

So they are already doing this and adding a motor to a bike is not going to change anything. It will however open a world of possibilities for having more fun on a bike. Shouldn't we be concentrating on that?
