Hey David, cheers for chiming in! You're right, the air volume is decreasing as you add more spacers, however it has less effect at sag than you think. Most of the impact the spacers have is felt near bottom out. Here's a graph from RockShox that...more

So to sum up. Ride the tire you like and don't be a dick about it.

Feels like a rant that was a long time coming. I am not going for popularity on Vital here, any pro ebike comments gets knocked pretty quickly online. I believe pedal assist ebikes are simply not a problem. Sure they are not as fun, most days I agree with that, and that’s why mine hasn’t been ridden even once in...more

Well said! Like I said in my opinion, I'm not coming down on anyone that chooses to have fun in a different way. I don't hate on roadies, cyclocross riders, or any other subset of two-wheel fun. You're having a good time and I say good for you. I will be really interested to see if your prediction comes true...

I've been mountain biking for quite awhile now (1988). I've owned many different bikes over the years, DH, Freeride, Enduro, trai, etc. I recently bought an Ebike and I will never go back to a mechanical/traditional mtb.
I've found climbing to actually be creative and FUN now!-having the ability to pop off of...more

Yup, plus about 1kg each for the tires. Throw in a dropper and weigh it with pedals and I think it adds up.

I'm in love.
My fork is a low single pivot Kona, this is a DW Link Pivot. Wheel path is no comparison. Progressive damping, progressive spring curve, no lower leg service, bottoming control and so much more. Steering we've never experienced. No...more

Super fun bike and one of the best lookers I've seen in a while. Those straight on pics don't do justice to what this bad boy looks like in person. Will be high on my list if I get the green light for a new whip.

Interesting article and clearly touches on some big issues facing both mountain bikers, but also web content creators.

First, there clearly are potential issues with E-bikes and traditional bikes sharing trails. The trickiest area is bidirectional singletrack, especially...more

I love it.... no problem with using a chairlift to get up Mammoth, but as soon as people want to use e-bikes on e-bike approved trails people lose their goddamned minds. Nothing like people telling other people how they should be able to enjoy their own mountain bike...more
