Been splitting my time between my Commencal E bike and my Pivot firebird 29 for the past 2 years and really with an open mind see no downside. The fitness level for both is the same I feel as you push hard on the E bike( yes you can moto uphill,) more effort the faster you go.. on...more

Some interesting discussion..

I don't necessarily think that they are 2 different sports, but they do appeal to different groups. The traditional bike riders tend to enjoy the suffering a bit. The ebike takes away that suffering. It makes things more accessible to more people.....more

Its funny that the most comments i get at the bike park are from kids. Usually its "hey, nice bike!!". Like the computer age, kids were on board enthusiastically from the start. G ma and g pa still working on getting the vhs on the go. Next gen will be after eebs

Spot in Salespunk. Your experience mirrors mine exactly. And most of the riders I’m riding with have pretty much made the switch after years regular rides. It’s just makes everything more fun. Even the boring trails. No longer are you avoiding trails that don’t have quite the downhill as a reward. It’s really just the regular bike experience but more fun. All the infighting seems to come from within our own community.

This is going to be fun. A bunch of riders who have never tried one complaining that it is a different sport, they don't belong on trails, they are motorcycles, they cause more trail erosion etc, etc, etc. Pretty much the exact same argument that the Sierra Club used against...more

Totally. Rode a 29 Demo last season in Whistler and was getting my ass buzzed like crazy. Had to change my riding technique. Would love to run mullet but Specialized wont make the linkage available to run it proper.

Ridden quite a few places. Like the common epic ones. Alps etc. honestly, if it’s about pure riding nothing beats BC imho. Now if you want to factor in things like Euro travel and touristy thing. etc, that’s different. But for pure riding Whistler / ... more »

I demo'd one of these a few months back and noticed a lot of the things the reviewer did. In our rocky terrain the way it tracked through corners was a game changer for me. I didn't realize I was fighting my telescoping fork while cornering until I rode the Shout. Agree about the way it...more

This fork could be rad on an Evil Wreckoning or something similar. Right before things got really slack. Something in the 66 HA range

Added reply in a thread How Much Reach is Too Much Reach? 7/9/2019 12:52 PM

Would you use reach judge fit between a trail bike and a DH bike? For example, the reach of the newly released 2020 demo in S2 to S4 sizing seems down right tiny right? Reach on the S3 sizing is almost the same as most medium trail bikes at 445mm. S2 ... more »

Judging from the ratio of up-votes to down-votes you have, I would say that it's you who is out of touch with the MTB industry and what end users are looking for.

I'm intrigued. Too pricey to try but if it was a few hundred more than a standard fork I'd give it a go.

Dude, get over it already. Why should riding bikes off road be so exclusive? The way you do it isn't the only way it can be done
