Thanks Vital! Bruiser...I like that.

Big thanks to Allspeed.com whose brick-and-mortar shop lets me be a grumpy old shop tech part-time as well as BTI-USA for carrying NS Bikes!

Entertaining list boys except for the EBIKE mention. No, no, and no. They belong on Vitalmx.com because they are motorized...I like my trails accessible and open for the forseeable future thank you.

Plus I don't feel like seeing some jabroni with a "dad-bod" (because he rides his E-bike once a week instead of working for proper fitness) out stealing KOMs from hard-working cyclists.

There are many useful and fun applications for ebikes. Of all of the possibilities, mountain bike racing them is the absolute highest tier of asininity. In fact, I can't even come up with a more absurd metaphor. Truly highest tier. Go Ebike race road ... more »

Can I get this with an air shock with a climb switch please? Frame weight around 7lbs and I will buy tomorrow. The geometry looks absolutely perfect.

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 to explain.

When people shuttle, they are not driving motorized vehicles up a bike trail so trail access in that manner is not threatened. Do I think shuttling is lame? Yup. But between the places I have lived out west and in New England, the shuttle-optional trails have yet to affect the trail access one way or the other.

This is about motorized bikes versus non-motorized. They are far and away different from one another. Cycling is purely human powered. Simple.

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
