Making Mountains out of Molehills (TM)

While it's great to see a new player enter the tire market at a high level on both performance and durability fronts, their "Direct to Consumer" pricing doesn't pencil out. I can buy any Specialized tire direct from Specialized or a dealer for $60. Street prices on any Maxxis I've ever...more

$65 with no middle man strikes me as kinda expensive. MAP (minimum advertised price) for most Maxxis models is less than $70. A direct to consumer cost of $45-$50 would put them on par with the wholesale pricing of the the most expensive mtb tires available.

If I am practically taking the lowers off, I am going to add fresh oil.

eBikes are the new roller blades. Which makes this an even bigger bummer

Well, if you can't polish a turd you may as well sprinkle some glitter on it.

I'm not dead against e-bikes, but SC trying to justify this by saying it was to explore further in Downieville is just bollocks. Justy say we want to make more money!

SC adds their name to the boycott list of shame! Next to Marin, Santa Cruz has had the worst uphill struggle with trail-access in all of California. Throwing more fuel on the flame by building more eMopeds to shred the tenuous peace NorCal riders have worked so hard to build on...more

One of the plaintiffs, Gold Country Trails has two mountainbike groups as affiliates. It's a little more nuanced than 'cowboys' suing the USFS. The wilderness society was already running around with their hair on fire screaming about Ted Stroll/Sustainable Trail Coalition's move to allow bike access in future...more

Regardless of what you think about this lawsuit, it's just a taste of what we could see a lot of in the future if we treat E-bikes the same as mountain bikes. We can bicker amongst ourselves as to whether they are motorbikes or not, all that matters is other user groups view them as such. Trail access is everything. Let's not forget that.

Buy a dirtbike. Ride it on the track or trail. They're super fun to climb! Ride your MTB on MTB non-motorized trails.

The problem is they're GONNA HURT TRAIL ACCESS FOR MOUNTAINBIKING!

You're probably right in that e-bikes will get cheaper and better and than way more people will ride e-MTB. And we will lose...more
