10k canadian for an x01, Fox Factory, Carbon wheel ride is actually decent value compared to other brands offerings. Currently Rocky has a 9k altitude with Fox PE and dt 370 wheelset.

That's actually a good price for a Canadian built trail weapon like that.

Sorry Man. I get you confused with Joe from Santa Cruz bikes who is really into e-bikes nowadays.

Habit becomes Addiction

I fished the black threaded piece that comes with bike for di2 through headtube and down the top tube with a string and lined it up till I could get a bolt started through. It was a bit tedious but worth it.

I can't help but think that the Top Fuel would have been a better bike to base this on.. Riders that would buy a Supercaliber are the ones usually the people with the most ebike hate..

...to purchase every part to build a complete bike is also hard to come by right now.

Yeah, for a custom build using MSRP parts, that's nothing to scoff at. Complete bikes will be cheaper (Ripmo AF or a Marin Alpine Trail) but they are hard to come by right now.

Love the idea and video, but PLEASE wear eye protection when cutting metal! I work with eyes and the amount of young guys who end up blind or partially sighted because they didn't wear eye protection when cutting or hammering metal is higher than you'd think.

Looking forward...more

@cblesius Why did you decide on 160 mm of travel over 170 mm. I'm considering a mullet SB165, but don't want less front travel than the SB150.

I was referencing width. That said, ideally you ride your bike on your feet, not your hands, so raising and lowering bars changes your base bias mildly and just allows you to set up to lean forward or rearward easier depending in your riding style. He mentions he wants to be able to shift rearward easier and taller bars allow that. This all based off throne (neutral) position. Attack is a moment in time , a position you work in and out of for features, not a base riding position.
Modern geo does help your position for descending but his short bike per his height isn't exactly "modern" geo.

why is that your only takeaway? do DH racers only use a DH bike for all of their DH training workouts? no. does any serious athlete only use a single tool for training? no.

I think it is minimized, as is the (possible) loss of twitch muscles due to getting far less power. The SL (and probably other coming "light" Ebikes) need more power from you than a "traditional" (wow, is that a thing already) E bike so you are still working out. Ive ridden Bosch 3 and 4 systems as well as a Levo and SL. I am fairly fit and prefer the SL as it has the most natural feel while still taking the edge off if you are on a recovery day(or for me just lucky enough to be on my 2nd ride of the day) or not wanting to max your heart rate. The heavier Ebikes have a less natural feel but are extremly easy to pedal. They do however really give your core and upper body a workout if ridden fast due to their weight being thrown around, and pace carried means less time upper body is relaxed and resting like you get doing laps with a standard or Light Ebike.
Does anyone else realize how rad it is to meet your friends Saturday morning and do a big ride on a regular bike, then meet a couple buddies for an Ebike ride in the afternoon, then do it again Sunday, only to realize its a 3 day weekend and go out on both bikes again for a 3rd day in a row. More fun than just an analog and more realistic for your body and legs, if you are lucky enough to have lots of riding time.
