Mine were the Gum-x compound. The rear was worse off than the front.

I thought that original e*thirteen was the most aggressive and impressive cornering tire i've ever ridden due to those side knobs. Hard cornering in loose conditions was a dream. Rolling resistance wasnt ideal in the rear, the new race ones are on par with minions in that regard.

I tried these and had high hopes, but after two rides in rocky desert terrain the side knobs were already tearing apart. Back to e*thirteen and maxxis as my go to tires.

I wonder what percentage of e mountain bikers are actually hacking their $5 to 10k ebikes and voiding the warranty? Highly doubt it is "the vast majority." Pretty sure Specialized can also detect this through their app. Also hilarious that in this day ... more »

"Why would an E-bike (that weighs 15-20 lbs more) not damage a trail more than a regular bicycle" The range of rider body weights makes 15 extra pounds of bike weight insignificant.. Possibly this important study will conclude that trails should have ... more »

No, but the topic posted is about class one ebikes and that they are too powerful. I test rode a Levo today. I noticed that when I pedaled while going downhill I got no benefit from the motor. I actually could generate more speed pedaling while going ... more »

"The industry also needs to stop presenting that we are somehow better than motorized users because we have to pedal to access that power. It is immaterial that a motorcycle does not have to be pedaled." Nope. Pedal assist (along with speed caps) is ... more »

Disagree with the stance of this article from an opinion basis, but there is also numerous incorrect pieces of info, I also do not appreciate Vital's choice of image for the lead (Racer guy hammering, and some dude bobbling on a roach emtb with no helmet, no proper attire, etc....that misleads the reader that...more

Thanks for the props! Can't promise it's something we'll always be able to do, but we really felt like it was all the bike needed this time around and we were stoked that it was a fairly small change from an engineering standpoint - it was that extra little bit...more

Lighten up dudes.

Richie got busted, served his penalty, and is back in the game, whatever the back story is. He's a young powerhouse with a long career ahead of him. I'm sure he'll be a lot more careful who's bottle he sips from now.

And damn, what a return!?!

4/5 stages won? Very impressive!

Yup, lol. The main thing we have learned from both the Rude/Graves and Maes incident, is that nearly every commenter on Pinkbike and Vital would have easily avoided the issue by being smarter than them. Sigh.

Let's see how he's doing after 5 races. Several races in 2018 he wasn't even in the top 20, so I don't think him coming out and not winning his first race means he only won in the past because he was doping. He'll obviously need some time to get back ... more »

A lot of you are worked up over some pretty minor stuff. This isn't some Lance type of situation, yet your emotions are comparable to that fiasco. Rude will continue to be at the top end of the results and this will prove not to be something that "taints" ... more »

I tell all my friends ebikes suck. They agree and think Im cool. I sent them this video and we all agree this does not look fun. Not fun at all. These are paid actors acting like they are having fun. A big conspiracy by mega bike corporations to sell you something new. smile
