Interesting that they've kept the old impact, and not replaced fully by the Impact VXI. I noticed Mr Hill never swapped to the new ones and preferred the "old" classics.

I love the new lighter impact, but they are dreadful for longevity. I've never been one to...more

"their already low margins squeezed" = LOL. You mean keystone margins? Like the $10 part you are selling for $20? Most car dealers make lower margins off a $30k vehicle than a shop makes on a $6k bike, but they understand business and move inventory. It is pretty common knowledge in the car industry...more

Normally I would read the comment section and be saddened to see how many people shun new technology but I have to agree that electric bikes must go asap! They're going to bring a new demographic into mountain biking that I don't think we want and just because there...more

I fall definitely into the "you've gotta earn it camp" and I'd rather eat my own hair than ride one of these mopeds. At best, I can see the point if you have an injury or disability that makes cycling difficult, at worst it'll put lazy c**ts out on the trails who...more

It only sounds dumb if you fail to properly comprehend what is being stated. Bikes with motors absolutely will threaten trail access. Period. It does not matter whether they are going up or down. Everyone here fully understands how they work so there is no need...more

The beauty of not having electric assist- The higher you make your way into the trail system, the less gapers and people overall crowding the trails. Electric assist is a horrendous idea. If you're too lazy to pedal to the top, stick to the lifts. At least then we...more

Dirt Magazine goes out of print and now this? Jesus...

On a serious note, this is a bad idea for MTB. Are the stupid things fun? Of course they are... It'd also be fun to blast my KX450F up the local MTB trails... It's also fun to shuttle all of the local MTB trails on...more

I'm glad you aren't seeing trail access issues where you live. I don't mean this as an insult but you are ignorant of the issues that exist in the US. Ebikes will exacerbate existing issues, and create new ones. This is something that shouldn't be taken lightly.

I've recently been diagnosed with MS, so my climbing days are over. But I'll vow right now that I'll never buy a pedal assist or full motor powered "Bike" and ride it on a mountain bike legal trail. As many have said, we've worked way too long and hard to get...more

The number of people that are reacting positively to this article is disturbing. Where do you draw the line? This will threaten trail access in the US if it catches on and e-bikes are indistinguishable from normal bikes to the lay person. If I knew there would...more
