My problem is more the relative prominence of the stories. Both vital and pinkbike have made extremely in depth pieces around doping in enduro, I get it, clicks. Let’s not be naive, people cheat. At school, at work, even when riding with their ‘Strava’ lines. In sports where simply taking a substance will improve your results regardless of previous effort, of course people are going to toe the line with what they take. I know of weekend warriors that’ll pay to do some doping before a local race just to perform a bit better. No job on the line, just their own result. I suppose it’s so obviously expected that I wish it wasn’t sensationalized as key pieces of news.

Unlike others on these forums I have no industry affiliations. I just love the sport. I spend money buying bikes and riding as much as possible while balancing a family, mortgage, job, etc. from my perspective articles like this are only damaging. I don’t care enough to really look into it, but headlines like this regardless of the veracity of the claims on either side taint the sport. Do I believe Martin? Sure. Do I believe Richie? Less so. But before I knew any of this I enjoyed watching them ride and following their careers. Now I will enjoy it less. Maybe I’m advocating to not report so heavily on these things because IMO it doesn’t help the sport

Agreed it is more accessible and this is a great video. But better for the sport than semenuk? Cmon dude, you can’t be serious. His videos have more than 20x the views of these things and people that don’t ride want to see semenuk like quality not someone making the most of a trail system

Surprised at the pricing. You can get the specialized Kenevo for the same price at a shop.

E bikes = one of the horsemen of the apocalypse for mountain biking

That looks really fun. E bikes are still evil

Can anyone comment on how the suspension feels compared to the nomad v4? It seems people are finding the recommended shock settings harsh on this bike

All the McCaul seem like genuinely cool people. It’s awesome they’ve done so well in the industry. Congrats guys.

Problem with e bikes is they are like one of the apocalypse horsemen for mountain biking here in the states. I’ve ridden e bikes, I honestly think they are super fun, but they are taking mountain biking down a path we can’t come back from. and they are basically as decisive as politics in the community. What would be good for mountain biking: pretend we never heard of e bikes and keep building rad trails and pedaling to the top and waiting for slower riders. For those with health issues that makes them unable to ride without assist. I’m genuinely sorry, mellow moto may be a fun option

Nothing against deity components, but What is the point of a 35 mm bar that you have to build compliance into? Why not stick with 31.8?
