I have no idea about the UCI but I totally agree regarding tear-offs. I was watching worlds with my 6 year old and she spotted a rider chucking one and asked her usual “why?” question. I didn’t really know what to say so I just said someone comes and cleans them up after (likely bullshit).

Kyle did a pretty good job here. I agree with both regarding compression damping.

It’s a great post but I do wonder how long they’ll last for heavier guys and slack SA’s. IMO anything over 170mm should be 34.9mm and have a proprietary sized stanchion.

That would be a test I’d like to see too.

When the Pinkbike review complained that the Top Fuel didn’t have a enough anti squat I knew it would be a bike I’d love.

Nice work Spomer! I want to do a cage fight between this and the Trek Top Fuel I've been on.

I think light weight smaller travel is the way to go..... I’ve got a 5010 130 front and rear and it’s a super fun bike on all the descents but is snappy enough to make the climbs and flats exciting. I ride mainly desert gnar and raw downhill in Tucson and there are very few times...more

Different story Joe. I don’t think anyone has issues with impaired people riding them. However, that’s max 5% of the eBike market.

The rest are just lazy, instant gratification types that are all too common in society these days.

Buy a dirtbike. Ride it on the track or trail. They're super fun to climb! Ride your MTB on MTB non-motorized trails.

The problem is they're GONNA HURT TRAIL ACCESS FOR MOUNTAINBIKING!

You're probably right in that e-bikes will get cheaper and better and than way more people will ride e-MTB. And we will lose...more

The problem is they will hurt trail access. I've seen plenty of e-bikers out on the trails that WILL hurt themselves and/or others because the barrier of MTB being hard (to get to the top at least and cover ground) is almost non-existent with an e-bike. They have no clue what they're doing out there. More hikers...more

The paid brand ambassadors you mean? Take away the sponsorship obligations and "pros" wouldn't ride an e-bike. But you go right ahead...

This is a tough one. My experience with *apparently* new riders on e-bikes has not been bad per se, but also not good. The notion of earning your downhills by climbing is kind of a lame retort unto itself, but it has some merit. In building up to be able to climb to the good trails, I learned a ton about bike...more

Would you please tell me what differentiates a mountain bike from a dirt bike, i.e. at what point does a bicycle become a motorcycle? I’m not necessarily opposed to ebikes but the fact that they have a motor, tiny or large, makes them a motorcycle of some sort and it’s an incorrect categorization to include them...more
