What a great place. I took my kid there and I had to pull him away hours later. A friendly and encouraging group of riders. Thanks to all that have worked to make that place happen. Sad to see it go, but thankful for it being there. P

Did you read my full comment? Most e-bikes will look like this in 10 years - almost no different looking than what we ride. Bike technology is advancing at a stupid-fast pace.

This is an interesting point on the e-bike riders over their head much deeper into the trail, I hadn't thought of that. Current trail system design has the advanced trails deeper in the system to help filter out the less skilled riders - for their own safety and as a selling point to the land managers for more well designed trails (= less exposure to litigation).

One of the issues that we will face is already coming to fruition: The e-bike looking the same as a mountain bike. Other trail users experiences with e-bikes will be seen as a mountain bike experience (or blame mountain bikers is the other way to put it). As e-bikes are starting to look identical to mountain bikes.

In the future, with improved technology like smaller and stronger motors, and smaller and stronger batteries, all e-bikes will look just like us. Except they will be doing 20mph up the trail.

This is an e-bike:


"Looking at the Annad Power E-bike, you’d never know it had a motor, which is why it won an award. That, and the fact that it only weighs 32 lbs (14.9kg), which for an e-bike is quite light."

Yeah, I have to say the nerdy/non-nerdy anti-squat paragraph was about as close to a perfect review paragraph I have read in a bike review: Some numbers explaining the ride descriptors but still keeping it readable. Nice one!

This is a great video, but like all things bike, there is shaving seconds for racing, and then there is riding with the buds, apply the right tool for the job.

WC DH riders have their shorts hemmed as tight as possible for that little bit of time savings.

I just read an interview with Bodie Miller where he found research that said switching from rubber goggle straps to plastic straps saves 1/1000th of a second. He won the bronze medal by 1/1000th of a second. Fashion or finish placement. Which is more ... more »

Mike Day will usher in the era of the 20 inch wheeled mountain bike. Manufacturers will see the opportunity, drop all other wheel sizes, media will claim the 27.5 obsolete and we will all buy new frames and wheels (made out of nano particle$). "It's so playful!!!" we will post everywhere... Until the World Cup is later won on a bike with a 26 front and 24 back...

(Joking aside, loved Mikes comments about smiling all day! That is the flavor!)

Funny comment, but it looks like a number of those guys are bike shop owners testing potential buys and shop dudes. I dig that some are out of their element and open to riding outside their comfort zone.
