It's an assist. You can't go 30 MPH up a hill, where it would become inherently more dangerous for everyone if it were in fact a throttle. Downhill is fast, but no faster than the pace you already ride at...It's no more dangerous to people around you and causes no more damage to trails than a standard bike.

Remember - I'm not going to buy one and not many people that post here will either (I expect), but if it's ridden where it's legal, carry on. I would argue that a lot of the trails we all ride already aren't legal...so that's the pot calling the kettle black, right?

I totally agree, motorized vehicles (with a throttle like an ATV, Moto, etc..) should not be on the same trails. Some of your comparisons are a bit far-fetched and not even remotely close to what this is...so let's move on.

I will say, this is not a motorized vehicle, there is no throttle, you have to pedal it and it supplements your power with some from the motor. Look at the list of people below (albeit small at this point) who know someone who could benefit from this. I'm sure you could benefit from it, being able to do more riding in a shorter period of time, causing no more damage to trails than on your bike before...

I wasn't a huge fan of this thing at first, but the more I understood about what it really is, the more I think it has a place. And to your point if it's used on legal trails, and there are plenty of them.

Awesome! I worked at Giant when that went down, stoked to see the bike went to someone who can shred.

I didn't say the best places, these are just some great places that I've ridden and are fairly accessible. There are ALOT more place in the world that are plenty more amazing I'm sure. I just haven't been there and I'm not about to pretend that I have because I've read an article about them.

No NZ, I haven't been there long enough to give good info. The places I got to ride in Rotorua were awesome though...

I don't know the rules nor do I care...I'm going to ask you two questions - For being such a salty old opinionated prick, you've seemed to make it pretty far in the bike industry. Do you turn the asshole switch off and kiss-ass when the meeting rooms ... more ยป

@Ballr, Yeah that is my seat angle for XC. It looks a little more extreme in these photos than it really is. I run all of my saddles nose up, but just slightly. Helps to keep me 'ducks in a row'....

Thanks for the props guys, stoked on how it came out.

@Uncle Cliffy - I want to find a spot to drill on my Trance X Advanced too, but that bike is soo much fun I couldn't live with myself if that cause it to fail. I just run a cable actuated post using the front der cable stops. With less housing it works super smooth and you can run the cable nice and short so it's not too intrusive on your legs.
