I really don't get what intense is thinking with there ALU frames. Do they try and make them as complicated to make as humanly possible? honestly how many separate pieces/ welds does it take to make this frame? so many points for possible failure and misalignments to happen. they should have gone carbon with this bike.... or at least used full hyrdoformed tubing.

I've been hearing about how rough his bike has looked for the last month or so. Think he was riding this same frame at Fontana or somthin like that.

I agree. this was one of the first raws that left me feeling unfulfilled. just seemed like the bike wants to roll everything and not get airborn. even in the corners it seems like he is working so hard. gear riding non the less but just didn't get me stoked the way raws normally do.

But still… This big wheels make him look overweight and slow.

Though all legal e-bikes pose no issue, there are too many over-powered ones commercially available/home grown that try to use the laws as a loop hole to ride. It makes sense to ban all of them altogether. It's a good thing I prefer my pedal bikes to e-bikes in general.

There's a local powersports shop that does custom jobs on Santa Cruz frames, I've ridden ones on Tallboy LTs (2013 model I think), the new 2015 Nomads, and the 2014 V10. The motors are all right at the federal legal limit of 750 W at up to 20 mph before the assistance cuts out (my state has...more

Bravo. E-bikes are motorized vehicles and should not be on bicycle trails.

People want to ban assault rifles because they're completely unnecessary but that has nothing to do with e-bikes so why bring it up? E-bikes do produce more than enough power to easily compensate for the added weight or else chubby chub chub wouldn't see any benefit from riding one. Not to...more

Yes, let people exercise their right to adventure! Hell let's just allow quads and dirtbikes on mtb trails! America is twisted in a lot of ways but this decision makes complete sense. You're acting like people who choose to use e-bikes are like a different culture or demographic. It has...more

Bad. Its like giving people motorized skins and allowing gapers to travel into the backcountry. That fool in your picture would be screwed if he got a flat or tipped over on his e-bike. No protection, probably only carrying a minimal amount of water and food and obviously has no friggen...more

Hardly offended by another Joey from Brooklyn who 1) cant read and 2) thinks Plattekill is the end-all, be-all of hardcore DH. If I ever decide to trade Schladming for Splatakill, I will be sure to let you know.

You always seem to follow every comment with "but it would be destroyed at Plattekill". Get real. Having grown up in Upstate NY, ridden at Plattekill, Bromont QB, all over Vermont and spending the last 4 years riding World Cup tracks in Central Europe, Plattekill is not even...more
