Liked a comment on the item SPIN FOREVER! Onyx Racing's Silent MTB Hub Review 1/8/2020 2:01 AM

Sugar Wheelworks here in Portland laced up a set of wheels for me 2 years ago with Derby 35 Carbon rims and Onyx hubs. I couldn't be happier with a set of wheels. I will never go back to a loud freehub, ever, and instant engagement is a treat.

How about same tyres, say the Assegai exo+, but with variations on PSI (e.g F20 R24/ F25 R30/ F30 R36)

Could even try with/without Cushcore to test their claim of better rolling efficiency ?

Wow, this is so sad. The US Military is deployed in more than 150 countries, our oceans are dying (and rising!), our air is polluted and thousands of other big issues that will affect nearly everyone on this plant yet we are fighting over how people ... more »

Its pretty clear you have not actually ridden an ebike JCL, so your comments are as usual for such fairly incorrect. If you use the mode that makes you Nino, your ride will be pretty short. I actually found it usually adds very little to distance, but is a more consistent workout due to man handling the bike...more

Feels like a rant that was a long time coming. I am not going for popularity on Vital here, any pro ebike comments gets knocked pretty quickly online. I believe pedal assist ebikes are simply not a problem. Sure they are not as fun, most days I agree with that, and that’s why mine hasn’t been ridden even once in...more

I've been mountain biking for quite awhile now (1988). I've owned many different bikes over the years, DH, Freeride, Enduro, trai, etc. I recently bought an Ebike and I will never go back to a mechanical/traditional mtb.
I've found climbing to actually be creative and FUN now!-having the ability to pop off of...more

Your article was enlightening. I have been struggling to understand the antipathy towards e-bikes and I think you've highlighted it - culture. There would appear to be a feeling that e-bikes don't fit an idealized notion of mountain bike culture and might bring people to the trails who aren't like “us" - who...more

Pros only riding ebikes for commercial is simply not true. So
Many pros use ebikes because they’re just fun. They just don’t show it on their daily insta. The Cycling market is driven by Europe and they understand ebikes. This article shows that it’s still a long way to go for the US and especially for US...more

With some of the names involved and the tricks being thrown now, this could become an insane speed and style event. The jumps are getting so big that there is no real "racer" line, and riders should get rewarded for tricking them also. Small trick,...more

How to increase the funding for the land agencies seems to be a big concern. It is interesting that huge industries make money off of our parklands yet I am not sure how much they fund them. E-bikes are and will be nothing compared to the impact of side ... more »

Thanks! The reporting “journalism” is why we really do it. Sharing the stories and moments behind the moments with our chats is what keeps me doing this. The photos and captions are secondary. So thanks for listening (and looking)
