Added a new video Keith Robert in, Act 2 12/2/2019 12:49 PM

With a Pro class 1st overall in Race Cascadia Full tilt series and Pro class 4th overall in Cascadia dirt cup there is no question Keith Robert had an excellent 1st year racing MTB. I was able to get an hour with him on some trails close to his home in the PNW. The temperature was cold, Keith's Habit 2 was fresh, and the stoke was high for this quick edit. @keithsafe23

Is it because Jenson doesn't carry Etnies that there are no Jameson (Semenuk Sig shoe) or the Marana Crank as test options? Marana Crank is an amazing MTB Enduro/DH shoe, and Semenuk's is a great DJ/Trail shoe.

I've had a pair on one of my bikes for three months now, I share your opinion.

Disagree with the stance of this article from an opinion basis, but there is also numerous incorrect pieces of info, I also do not appreciate Vital's choice of image for the lead (Racer guy hammering, and some dude bobbling on a roach emtb with no helmet, no proper attire, etc....that misleads the reader that...more

A motorbike, has a throttle, a bike has pedals for propulsion.. and just to be clear a "moped" has both. Gas or electric is not the concern here, except that progression of electric motors and batteries has finally made pedal assisted bikes more realistic for use.
Personally my biggest concern is personally is Class 2 E bikes (these are throttle assisted 20mph max) because they have a throttle and are not purely pedal assist. I believe these should be no part of E bike classifications. If it has a throttle it should be classified as motorcycle and its a question of at what size must it be licensed for road use and if it must be on car lanes and not bike lanes, as well as only allowed on moto trails.

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 due to weight of bike, and fact your overall pace is higher meaning you must stay in it and not daydream even on the climbs. If its road climbs, well its still better than a shuttle rig, and would negate your complaint to access and degradationon. I would also argue that trail degradation on just trails is not much more either, Its rider skill that brakes hard, rips turns, and generally shralps a trail into need of repair. This can be done on any bike by a good rider, and I would argue better on a "regular" bike. Those "other" less skilled riders are gonna blow the tops off berms, ruin bench cuts, and round off drops irrelevant of what style bike they ride.

More people accessing trails may be a legitimate complaint, but honestly these new riders are only going to ride the "rowdiest" trails once. When they walk their 45-55lb E bike down the trail, they will not be interested in doing it again. "new" riders to the sport will be on green and blue trails, or cement paths after a couple "mtb rides"

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

That is not correct Verbal. While it is upforked by 10mm over the previous HD4 it is still spec'd with a 27.5 fork, not a 27.5+/29 fork.

I’m curious as to why a new bike release like this would not be moving to a metric platform but instead go with the 200x57 shock?
