Stoopid short is where it's at. My 9.5" travel DH bike has 16.5" stays.

Here's a short response from Banshee on that topic: "No 650b specific version... we wanted to offer a pure bred 26" DH bike as they have advantages for many riders. And not many other brands still offer it even though lots of people want it."

Yes, let people exercise their right to adventure! Hell let's just allow quads and dirtbikes on mtb trails! America is twisted in a lot of ways but this decision makes complete sense. You're acting like people who choose to use e-bikes are like a different culture or demographic. It has...more

Good, here's to hoping this sets the proper precedent: e-bikes = motorized vehicles.

Also, let me forestall the barrage of ignorant criticisms: yes, I have ridden an e-bike. I think they're a great invention, and they are a cool piece of technology. For xmas, I'm seriously thinking of getting...more

Bravo. E-bikes are motorized vehicles and should not be on bicycle trails.

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...more

I'm just glad that Dave Weagle doesn't get ripped off for once.

I think I can safely say that we will all be sleeping a little better at night knowing this

Maybe they should see if Michael Phelps swims faster in his jeans or in a skin suit too

Wait... Did they just try to sell me a Specialized skinsuit?

The pedals were fine, though not as good as thinner pedals would be. The shoes were stupid. What were they thinking?

Most people are absolutely blown away to learn that flat pedals allow you to pedal at a lower percentage of vo2max at these lower outputs. But there is actually a lot of data from studies that show this to be true. It has more to do with lower...more

Is that what's considered "Proper DH" nowadays?

Liked a comment on the item Death to Enduro 10/31/2014 8:09 AM

Since when was riding groomers ' proper DH ' ?

At least ride a real dh trail...a 6" bike would probably been faster

TRex,

I appreciate the skepticism given the general nature of Vital focusing on more "aggressive" riding disciplines. I've used those Oury grips for what seems like forever, even when I lived in Oregon and it rained all the time. I really like the diameter it gives my grip and the...more

This dropper is specifically aimed at first time dropper users (purebred XC riders/racers), which is exactly why Josh was a great reviewer for it. To my knowledge there are no other XC droppers on the market today, so what would he compare it to? His findings do coincide with my...more

Here in 'Murica we tend to shout a lot about FREEDOM! But we certainly don't have the FREEDOM! to build ridiculously fun trails like that in the neighborhood. Well done Switzerland.

Very cool! I would love to see more mixed style events. A new definition for "All Mountain."
