2.3 HR2 front tire + i31.5mm rim is not a good combo....I got all excited for a minute hoping there was a good option for a sub i30mm rim...

So that's what carbon wheels needed, a higher price.

Engagement/hub looks good. 21mm inner width? Pass. Bring the hate but there's still a market for 26. Many of us are happy on our current frames but would still like options for wheels.

I've never considered that suspension seal trick. I'd be worried about damaging the seal. I've always just done it as part of suspension service while the lowers are off the bike.

I would still totally go for a MOAB from Maverik right now.

Yes. It goes something like this:

I apologize for this. Although I can *promise* the fork was hammered through far more than a mini-bike-park or an XC trail (as pictured above) I couldn't convince my photog to bring his gear on the really fun rides. (one wanted to ride, not shoot the other just had dual...more

dustyboy,

Seems like you figured out the secret. Its about the ride. Not about the swankiest new product. But hey, for guys like me that are trying to compensate for something (being slow, get your head out of the gutter), new product like the Pike is certainly a help!

And by the time...more

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
