So. No race in US but one on this track? Ok. Cool. Just wanted to make sure.

I'm with @gtbikes. The problem will ultimately be this, and hear me out. The trails will be flooded, at some point, with them. And that will mean folks who probably otherwise would not be on the trail nor probably should be on the trail will be there. That in and of itself isn't wrong, but most singletrack is multi purpose as it is and now, we will have folks just gliding along, not keeping momentum and clogging an already busy trail up. So, I guess if those folks on the ebikes can keep the pace, rather than just using pure e power to mosey along, I think we are not going to have a choice in the future. As long as when the hammer drops pedal bikes aren't lumped into the banned category, I'm good with them if they can keep up.

So local bike shops have their already low margins squeezed and there is no price reduction or benefit to the consumer. Good for Trek.

People are willing to buy bikes direct online because they are great value for money. If you are going to pay dealer prices anyway, part of the cost/experience is...more

The trilobial polygon interface was good enough for wwII tanks, and its good enough for me. It is pretty much the shit, i've had my LG1 off and on at least a hundred times and it still has an audible pop when the crank arm is pulled. It does require more material at the taper than a splined interface...more

A lot of dropper post remotes are terrible, and few can match the ergonomics of a front derailleur shifter. It would be hard to justify buying a new shifter just to cut it apart, but there are LOT of front derailleur shifters sitting around unused these days.

Kind of funny though. The first eliminator race was destroyed and won by Brian Lopes. It got a ton of headlines and was pretty dang popular at that time. They then "adjusted" the eliminator to be more, "XC" type rider, friendly, and nobody started to take notice. UCI.... an interesting group of minds, to say the least...
