A lot of the riding was first descents and a lot was very technical. As in all videos of this kind it does not do the steepness any justice. NZ rocks for riding of any kind but it has the best back country riding I have ever experienced. Notable places I rode (might feature in this vid): Rotorua, Tauranga, Taupo, Queenstown, Blenheim, Nelson, Wanaka. What I learned was that there is much, much more riding to be done. NZ will see me again...

Mmm. I don't speak German and I am in Australia. That site does not appear to support english or international shipping. CRC had it on back order for months and then pulled it completely. The NZ distributer says it's months away. I will re-phrase my question to when can people in Australia buy it?

Goody gumdrops! Does this mean the e-ram is close to production?

I think poor Kelley got stuck in traffic with an accident on the road and couldn't make the qualy rounds so he did some rides but wasn't really trying to win. That being said, my money was on Hamish from the start of practice. That kid smokes the little bike!

I pretty much always ride with a pack with spare tubes, pump, levers, water and munchies. Most of my rides are 2+ hours and it gets stinking hot in summer so you need to hydrate. It has also replaced my body armour as back protection and I even use it ... more ยป

You better not show up on my trails with a Di2 or iCD or E:i Shock or.... hell anything else I might not like because it's not on my bike.

man... next they're going to make it illegal to drive my electric car down the sidewalk.

Give people some freedom. Let people exercise their right to adventure. Americans are so twisted when it comes to rules especially ones (e-bikes) that aren't hurting anyone. I would probably never ride one, but I am not going to judge the man next to me who is. Let him ride his toy who wants...more

Cool to see the Zerode G2 in my face first thing in the morning checking out Vital
Love mine.

Based on the interview questions it seems people sometimes forget the Zerode is much more than just a gearbox bike. The gearbox was a clever way to solve the problem of massive chain growth for such a high pivot bike (read that as the most insane bump eating machine ever!). It has the added benefit of being maintenance and hassle free and, as Kieran said, centres the weight to make it handle fantastic. Less weight on the wheel is also great for small bumps.

Funny video as well, those guys had to bail pretty quick
