Not discounting Maes at all. However, Maes is 21, body and mind can 'switch gears' a bit easier so to speak at that age.

Modern tracks don't suit Sam, but he have such a big talent and with good motivation he can win.

My Heart says yes, but if there was money on the line, I'd place my money elsewhere.

Different disciplines for sure. However, Loris just won the Trans Cascadia in pro with Luca Shaw in third. They both beat last year's winner, Geoff Kabush who got 5th. He is no endurance slouch. DH isn't enduro, but the top level pros are in great condition.

Oh for the love of fuck, would it kill someone to post a shot of the women's results as well? They're racing the same track. They paid the same entry fee. Give 'em equal coverage and at least ATTEMPT to give a fuck.

Are these jobs people actually want? Our economy is changing and I am not convinced people want a career building bike frames when every year those frames are getting closer to being to be built by robots. That will bring a new type of job to the bike building...more

MPH24 makes a very valid point. I don't know many people in the western world who want to hand lay carbon and wear a mask all day (not to mention repeating the same task over and over and over). The same could be said for aluminum frames. Not a very attractive...more

'Democrats, or Republicans' was not mentioned. I hope you do see the relevance of the cost of cycling goods to a cycling site though. News that will most likely affect everyone should just be seen as that, news, not bias. Plus, this article had good arguments...more

So, You'll pay more money for a bike that would be cheaper if it were coming from overseas? The last time I checked, "made in America" didn't necessarily mean it was the best quality.

"We are not asking for special treatment, but rather for an equal playing field"... special treatment is EXACTLY what you are asking for numb nut.

A few questions.

1. At 50 seconds "We had to bring in a 29er DH bike" Why? because 29ers are dominating DH? Is the demand there?
2. After long, low, slack and 29" what's next?
3. Flipchips / adjustable geo, do average riders tweak this at all?

I hope all modern mountain bikes go this way. Flips chips and adjustable geo for
The rider to choose between wheel sizes and not the manufacturer.

No different than: a flat tire, shift cable breaking, brakes needing to be bled, leaking pistons. I am against e-bikes, but this is one area I am down for if they get it right.

@casman86 Exactly. If you're going to review this motorized crap put it on "Vital E-MTB". You've grossly mis-judged your audience.

Actually it is, since motor vehicles are not allowed on mountain bike or hiking trails. So there's that. Bicycle or motorcycle, choose one or one of each. Keep your moped shit off trails you have no right to ride. You know people are pretending to be cyclists on these and not...more
