Added reply in a thread Random musing: Road vs. MTB frame prices 5/5/2020 5:53 AM

They are just charging what they can / have to... some companies are spending a lot on R&D... some are spending a lot on branding... but there are costs in the frame that you are charged for either way... I used to work for Time, and we invented ... more »

I Dm'ed you but, for the lurkers, i think you can probably rig up a strip that attached to the rear of the seat tube with 3m command strips or some other high strength, yet removable adhesive solution... its just needs to create a lap over that gap to ... more »

Those look nice, light, and comfy. Way to go. We use some very similar ones at work.

that is an interesting question.... i couldnt say how Bosch or Spec view their promotion of Ebike racing... in any case i dont think anyone is throwing big money at it yet... as far as AB, who i know, i can say confidently that she is a person who enjoys the lifestyle of riding and racing bikes... she is happy to line up in any race on any bike, so for sure if she is at an event, and can line up for an ebike race, she is gonna be stoked to do it and be a part of something new... i did the ebike race at sea otter one year in the same spirit... but no real commitment to it either... just fun... the opportunities though, as you probably agree, are long term... not near term, at least in the US market...

Thx for weighing in.
I'm not a tin foil hat guy I understand that ebikers want to participate and I get the supply and demand thing.
I participated in and organized regional racing that a few EWS Elite Racers cut there teeth in. And I can say it's all...more

i dont think there is some dark industry cabal organizing behind ebike racing to force ebikes into the market... the industry does not cooperate at that level internally... and certainly they dont cooperate with the UCI... the ebike thing is out there.. the momentum is real because of consumer demand... not the machinations of "the industry"... some of what we see is people seeing the way things are moving and trying in their way to get a hold of it as to not lose out and be left behind... mostly by aggressive following, hedging as they hide, and taking up a shit useless positions just to not cede the space to others... sometimes though, i think in the case of TLD and Electric Boogaloo, there are some events really trying something new based on entrepreneurial people being legitimately excited about it... in CES, we had been asked and begged to allow eMTB by actual riders who own actual bikes that they bought (not sponsored riders)... so we did... it is small and growing... still would rather ride Harescramble than an EWS on an ebike... but thats just me...

It needs to be long and hard enough so the riders have to monitor their battery output carefully and wisely. No tech zones (although that may be a tough one go back to). Steep, very technical climbs as opposed to fire roads. Even some tiring pushing sections...more

I've talked about how to best organize ebike racing A LOT in the past 5 years and I keep coming back to it needing it's own format since no current format really provides any angle for the "e" part of it... in the end the bottom line is the dudes just seem to want to do the normal race, just on their ebike... uninteresting... i know... it will evolve when more dudes have ebikes... and I am not sure really the future of any bike racing at this moment...
