Gnar factor is not super high except the steep bit around 5:00. Typically most people go around it because once you plunge into it, gravity takes over and you struggle to control speed for the berm. the braking bumps can be like stairs.

The track is quite fast and has good flow, not a lot of rocks and roots, but brake bumps can be terrible. Overall the track is not very steep, some turns are quite flat actually.

Actually, this is a kind of track I would excpect and long 29er to have great advantages because of speed and because you need to carry speed since it's not steep all the time. And yes, 7 seconds on a 3:30 track is huge, but if someone would make these 7 seconds while riding in front of you, you would probably have the impression that you kinda keep up most of the time. So for an average rider who is not racing, I'd say these 7 second are not as big of a deal.

It is like a dropper, which means it depends on the situation. All my rides are long steady uphills with long steady descents and I think all the time about ditching the dropper and going back to the solid post just to save weight. I like droppers, don't get me wrong. But it's not a huge need for me. This auto lockout would be exactly the same. if I do flip a switch, it's once at the bottom at once at the top. But I realize that's not the same for everyone.

The best part is ebikes are under "non mountain" bikes owned.

Are you going to allow a user setting to block ebike content guys?
Love you more than PB but I'm here for mountain bikes and not going this route.

E bikes are not mountain bikes. They are weak motor bikes. But fun to ride and generate lots of new money for the industry so here we are
