ZAKBROWN!

Got to sneak in a ride on one of these last week - it's pretty awesome. It doesn't have the giggle inducing power wheelie kick of a full power ebike (or the 90s DH bike feel on the descents) - it feels more like a good enduro/trail bike with some extra oomph. Other riders don't even notice you're on an ebike, keeping snarky comments to a minimum.

I'm disappointed that you hold this viewpoint Jeff.

If it does nothing then why are you affected by it?

It does something for me. While I'm not black, I've been at the receiving end of racist remarks. A friend hated the Chinese and said they all should be bombed and...more

The value rating was intended to be for the whole range of the Trance X. This $8500 model gets you some things you can’t find under $10,000, namely FOX Live Valve (and carbon wheels). The Advanced Pro 29 1 at $5,400 model has great suspension and drivetrain parts for the...more

Thinking more like 40+

My size medium commencal meta with ZEB/coil shock and similarly heavy wheels/tires/crap on it was 39.

Either way cool bike and thanks for all the info.

The Cecile manual photo is all time, Sven! Rad to see a power stage in the mix.

Race-driven e-bike development under a bunch of former World Champs will lead to some amazing things. This is exciting.

Agreed Jeff, it's lame. It's not just the pro class, there's amateur and masters guys that do the same thing. The fact that most of the races in the west are bike park based these days and there are rarely new trails cut just for the race doesn't help, ... more »

Great to hear, I've been struggling a bit with the stock X2 as well. I got a couple days on a demo Storia off a Norco Range and it was pretty impressive - looking forward to getting my custom shock.

Nice! How's the Ohlins coil working for you? I've got a Storia on the way for mine. Are you running 60 or 65mm stroke?
