Added reply in a thread Good downhill bikes for beginners? Please reply :( 5/3/2014 5:40 AM

A good beginner freeride downhill bike is one that is: A. Built for that particular discipline. B. Has the right amount of travel C. Something you're comfortable on. A few custom tweaks here and there. Since you're looking for a bike on eBay you're not ... more ยป

It's a different type of motor then what's used on dirt bikes and motorcycles.

It's a motor that assists in pedaling. The bike can't drive itself. You still need to pedal.

Your definition is a bit off.

You wouldn't call it a mountain bike? Yeah, because obviously he wasn't riding off road on rough terrain. Obviously that bike is a road bike because everything about it is the same as a mountain bike except that it has a motor.

Thanks for this. I was curious to know how Nino got 6th place. Yeah, a flat tire will do that...still 6th place is pretty damn good when you have to change a flat tire.

yd35: Yep, impossible to find these in America. It sucks and Scott should release these pads in the US...I mean after all it's more money in their pockets if they bring them over to the US for purchase.

To put it bluntly, you can't go around telling people who are worried about being injured by a product because you "rarely" crashed on your back. That's like telling everyone "Don't worry about bears in the woods when camping I've never seen one so it's not an issue"

We have a right to be concerned and to question any product that we think can be more harmful then good. Riding fast and crashing are two things when mixed equals uncertain results. It would be nice to carry less and be free of any backpack I agree I just don't agree with this solution much.

Also, my apologies for the harsh reply earlier.

Nicholast: Your post makes me even think you even ride a bike. How arrogant to think you can crash just the way you like. When people crash it's unpredictable. Go watch some videos on youtube of bike crashes and tell me you can't fine one single person who hasn't landed on their back or rolled on their back.

Also, being impaled? HAHA do you even know what that word means? No one is worried about being "stabbed" in the back. Ok, do us ALL a favor buy one of these wear it with some tools and a filled up water bottle. Do a backflip and land on your back and tell me it didn't hurt and left no damage to your back. (If you're truly that dumb to do this then I take no responsibility)

Sure XC riders have been doing this for a long time as well as road bikers...it still doesn't make it a good idea. This idea is nothing new.
