I try to hide the uphill prowess. Don't want people to get the wrong idea.

Some quality technical climbing in there thanks to Mr Blue Socks Wentz. You would be a contender Sir! I've only ridden downhill with you. Wish we had a chance to climb together.

Great content! Thanks for the meaningful review of more affordable bikes.

One thing I would love to see — does spending 10K on a bike actually make you faster than a rig you can put together in the range of $3500-$4000? I’d absolutely love to see a review that includes timed tests in conditions...more

Seems to me that the whole thing will always be debated, and that's the end of the story. There will ever be consensus, and that's fine.

Just because there are cranks, some people will believe ebikes are mountian bikes. Some people, on the other hand, believe any addition of power will make it a motorcycle. Do there have to be pegs for people to really believe they are different? Of course they are different. But I think the focus should be on the purpose. The author seems to rather sit on a thumb tack and climb for hours than rocket up the hill in half the time and get two (less stellar) descents in the same time as one 'normal' ride. But that's his version of fun, as he stated. His purpose is having the best bits of a descent possible, which he hasn't experiences on an ebike.

I can't help but think that the debate comes down what people think is pure, or 'cheating'. Maybe it isn't so different than the industry of breast augmentation. There's one camp of people that thinks only natural is the way to go. Anything else is 'cheating' or low brow. Then there's the people that think its your body, do whatever the hell you want. The interesting parallel to me is the obvious reason to have reconstruction because of mastectomy or something like that. Is it that different than what the author brought up about Paul? Unfortunate situation brings up the need for augmentation. The crap part is, some people will still view 'ebike' or 'fake tits' first and foremost, instead of a confident person that overcame something. Who cares if you did or didn't have to overcome something? It's just that person's version of fun.

For me, if you can touch the bikes or the breasts, they're real. Real fun. I'm down with all of it.

He got 4th at what was probably the most competitive Rampage to date. Just to make the top 10 this year you had to have a pretty remarkable run. Not to mention the amount of media he's gotten in the last year and especially the last couple of weeks....more

No doubt denting is a byproduct of a number of factors, including the bike you are riding. The Sentinels I was riding this year were awesome, but a bit anemic, which might have contributed to how easy these were to dent. (I have tendency to ride like Kai the hatchet wielding...more

100% agree. At the time I used the rim I didn't have an EXO+ option, just EXO and DD, so I opted for the lighter one.

I wouldn't disagree at all with what is written here, but my experience with this rim left something to be desired. The sidewalls are short, and seem pretty thin on top. When I used this rim on my trail bike, it did stay pretty straight, but I think I'd prefer a taller sidewall. This 'feature' let me blow one (specialized) tire off the rim when I had just one layer of gorilla tape as a tubeless sealant. There just isn't much room for the bead to be held I guess. I had no issues while riding, but I was a bit unnerved. The worse part was that I seemed to cut a few more Maxxis EXO sidewalls with this rim than others, being that it was stout, but somewhat sharp. Not a bad wheel, but not perfect for what I wanted to do on a 150mm bike.

Jeff Brines posts have to date taken up .5 percent of global server space, equating to about 3 million tons of CO2 emissions from the energy needed to run them.
