I was the dude starting at the stage for the Weir photo. I told Weir that I would be blow away if you got down the trail, found a spot and got your camera out in time for a decent pic, he remained confident. Consider me blow away. I think you took off down the trail with like less than 30 seconds before his start.

Agree with more travel. Really no reason not to make this a 6" bike, not like 1 or 2 pounds of weight matters in this application.

The Rotwild and Haibike XDURO are more like it but the Big S seems to have taken the electronics integration to the next level.

Love it!!! Finally some non European company gets it. There was hate for suspension when it first came out, in fact there is hate for EVERY new mtb trend when it comes out. I don't get it why there are so many negative nancy's out there but either way it seems...more

In Europe these aren't defined as mopeds! They are 'Pedalecs' and can be used anywhere you can use a bike. Pedal assistance only works up to 15mph, after that it you're pedalling by yourself. Which is fine, especially downhill, just like a normal bike!

The article says it perfectly. "The Levo will allow you to go much further and higher". I love my XC Bike and I love my good XC rides with my XC friends. I see no reason for anyone to flame this bike. Might not be for everyone but if you care that much about...more

Do you realize how dumb you sound? You are not allowed a pedal assist motor in the bike (which means you still have to use your muscles to get up the hill, it just uses less of your energy) but it is perfectly fine to use a lift or vehicle to get to the top?!...more

No bones about it, this is motorized by most definitions and technically not allowed on most trails and may exacerbate access issues. That said, WHY?

My thoughts on a few issues...

1) Increased erosion? The bike can't roost like a moto. It merely increases one's...more

I'm all for it. 20+ years of hard core MTB experience and 10+ years extreme enduro moto experience.
No it's not 'pure' in the MTB/sado masochististic pedaling sense whatever the hell that means. And no I can't do a 100+ mile epic singletrack throttle twisting...more

Have you been practicing this? Is that how you figured out you wanted these to be "very dry"?

I feel like we must have watched different videos. Either that, or I really want to see you corner..

Don't forget the Intense Spyder 29c. Super fun bike.

Added reply in a thread Survey: How do you choose & buy your tyres ? 3/25/2015 11:57 AM

Filled out the survey but also noticed a logic error. I know what brand of tires came with my bike and I am likely to buy that brand again because it happens to be the brand which I trust most. So I am buying the same brand again, but not because it ... more ยป
