I read this BR article this morning, and like you said - Jorna's opinions are his own. But I have to disagree with his point of view, simply because his "speed" argument has flaws. The 20mph top speed isn't the problem here - it's proper education of ... more »

Thanks but I used to be subscribed from day one, didn't like the contents of the last couple boxes I received so i cancelled. I'm over the whole "mystery contents" thing, but I was just curious about the extra boxes because if any future extra boxes ... more »

Are there still some past gear boxes available for sale? I feel like at one point in time there was a page on the site selling extra gear club boxes, but I can't seem to find it anymore.

I watched the video a few times. There's a lot said and a lot to address, but I'm going to just respond to the points pointed out by Vital. 1)Do eMTB’s do more damage to trails than regular analog pedal bikes? Joe cites that there has been very little, ... more »

I liked the first few boxes. Stayed on for a year, cancelled my subscription after getting tired of paying for a box full of mostly snacks and Vital branded gear all the time.

Yes - absolutely specific to the "MTB a*hole attitude". I'm sorry if you read that as me saying "ALL MTB people", because I didn't - and that's not what I meant or implied. "...did you notice how many people online turn into A*holes?" Again - I didn't

LOL I don't think you understood what I was saying in the first post. No one said voicing an opinion was wrong... what I was referring to is a specific "type" of person who goes to the extent of being an A*hole when they are voicing their opinion - obviously ... more »

I guess that all depends on who you're friends are LOL If I'm riding eMTB by myself, I go at my own pace. If I'm riding with friends "some eMTB some not" we always make it a point to stay together as a group. If that means I ride slower, then so be it. ... more »

LOL 105% That made me laugh! "...25% of (male) mountain bikers are assholes online because it gives them a place to vent with little or no repercussions" I get what you're saying, if it is really 25% that's a high number and it's really sad, if you think ... more »

Personally I don't feel like to be a "real mountain biker" I have to "test my mind and body to get to the top of the mountain" - if that's the case, then no one using the uplift at mountain bike parks are "real mountain bikers". For me, the part of mountain ... more »

Right - so basically because the Santa looking guy passed you on an E-bike, that upset you? What difference does it make if it was a regular person on a regular bike passing you? Do you feel like somehow the Santa-looking guy is "cheating" or "not suffering"? ... more »

Ever since I've gotten into mountain biking about 7 years ago, I've noticed something that seems to be a constant: the MTB a*hole attitude that manifests every time there's some major shift or change in the sport/hobby. The first topic I recall was when ... more »

Looking into your comments you've got a hate on for e-bikes. Can you show me on the doll where the bad bad e-bike touched you?

You seem nice.

Here’s a free tip: don’t like e-MTB? Don’t get one and scroll past any stories involving one. You may be less angry.
