I am fortunate enough to live in Denver and have access to several lift-assisted bike parts. I hit Whistler each year for several days. Therefore I have both a DH and a trail bike. Modern enduro/trail bikes are excellent machines in so many ways. However, ... more »

Anyone know what brand sprocket is shown in silver with the "Light Enduro Carbon Chain Guide" on the turquoise frame?

I was thinking the same. Looks like Profile Racing design

Onyx makes great hubs, but the drilled out hub body I wouldn't go for. The minimal weight savings are not worth the headache of clean and or dirt/grit/grime that would get inside there.

How do you enforce access for a certain group but only if they meet a certain classification (ie class 1emtbs). You eventually have situations like this.... "Why should my bike not be allowed since the only difference is it has a throttle?"

This was brought up by a land manager who...more

Come out to any Western state, sit anyone of many trail committee meeting, access meeting, rangers meeting, here what many of those same equestrian and hiker groups say about bikes and you may begin to understand the alarm that e-bikes sound to us. "New kid on the block " directly threatens our access due to direct association to regular bikers. We "all look the same" to non-bikers. As soon as "electric" is discovered/ heard they will become more vigilant against two wheels

Loss of trail access is the big ticket. The various trail user groups throughout the US are very heavily anti-MTB. Mountain biker advocacy groups across the US have fought a long hard battle to get what little access we have. As of late, the fight has been going very well, mainly due to the...more

I don't think the statement 'europeans have embraced them' is true. It's just as divided and contentious issue, despite sales being strong.
My personal opinion is they are simply a motorbike ripping round my trails. I have a deep anger when one passes me.
I know this is totally irrational...more

I'm with @gtbikes. The problem will ultimately be this, and hear me out. The trails will be flooded, at some point, with them. And that will mean folks who probably otherwise would not be on the trail nor probably should be on the trail will be there. That in and of itself isn't wrong, but...more

For me its a trail access issue. In Montana we are fighting everyday to keep access to some amazing singletrack. The people and organizations that are fighting us use anything they can come up with against us. This is a easy one for them. Maybe if $100 of every ebike sale went help save...more

This article itself is designed to stir things up. Yes, they are a profit center for bike companies. Also, YES they are a direct threat to trail access, especially here in Western states such as Colorado, California, Montana etc. Much is said about '....but they are everywhere in Europe'. So what? Maybe Euro land managers and/or hikers/equestrians/Sierra Club type as Natzi as they are here in the US. Good for them. For city/commuter bikes...fine. Keep them off our hard earned trails. (of course true disabilities are an exception)

Everyone should know by now that EU anti-trust (and anti-dumping, and illegal subsidy) laws only apply to US corporations.

This deal is too small to gain any attention anyway, I just hope CRC keeps the under-US-wholesale pricing on Shimano.
