Exactly, and to your point all the major health orgs in the USA agree that you are indeed allowed and even encouraged to get outside and exercise, AS LONG AS you observe the 6' distance etiquette. And hell, why not make it 10' while we're at it just to be safe. I know a lot of us arent worried about getting sick, but we also don't want to be responsible for someone else getting it from us even if we're not feeling bad. Be careful, be optimistic, be outside!

Absolutely true, but if he filmed this even 12 days ago there wasn't the same urgency and widespread practice that we had 5 days ago... The Sedona MTB festival happened full-force with hundreds of people rubbing elbows just 2 weekends ago.

Good Job Nate! I loved this from an Old Guy Industry standpoint - find a voice, make unique, professional content, be friendly and approachable and finally, educate in a cool and respectful way. Kudos sir, and shoutout to the Mayor of Moab!

It's a simple business / retail equation, 4 category sectors which are uniform across every product sector in every market, they are, GOOD, BETTER, BEST and LUXE, apply the aforementioned to any bike / phone / car brand etc and the pricing structure starts to make sense,...more

I don't know... What is our definition of affordable? there are plenty of $50-500 new and used bikes available. If affordable means everyone can get a great bike regardless of income, then bikes are not affordable. The exact same can be said about cars, refrigerators, skis, etc. But when I read complaints it usually sounds like riders simply don't like the level of bike they can afford and want better.

When we say there "aren't enough high-quality low-end bikes out there" isn't that just saying we don't enjoy the Cheap Bike experience? The open market ensures that bikes that cost $500 new are pretty much as light, durable and cost-effective as they can get. Is that $500 bike as fun or durable as a $2000 bike? Obviously not. Does that mean bikes are inherently too expensive? No, because the same logic applies to everything we might want to buy and it becomes a matter of priorities. If good bikes are my jam, I can't buy an expensive car. If I love a garage full of sweet cars, I have to pay less for housing. If I can afford all of them, great! If I can't, it's not the fault of the bike, the car or the house market.

How did you sort out chain tension? I don't see a horizontal dropout, tensioner, or any sort of eccentric hub/bb.

@ Vital MTB
Is there any chance that we see test of Orbea Laufey?
Thanks in advance!

32x19T (or 34x21 or 30x17) gives proper tension and it's a pretty reasonable gear for me. A "Magic Gear" is the gear ratio that works on a regular bike without the ability to adjust tension.

Sometimes it's a little tight or a little loose, but this one worked out to be spot-on.

FWIW, just a comment on Ramp Control, we look at speed-sensitivity as an upside on that product, not a downside. I quite like the feel of a plush, high-volume air spring while doing a technical climb, for instance. It's nice to have that AND support for those "oh sheet" moments on...more
