The correct name according to ETRTO (= industry standard) would be '584' and '622'. That would leave us at '56-er'...

A bike like this in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing is still much faster than the average dentist on their wonder bike

I really enjoyed the video.

Coworkers and other people frequently ask me what they should get and I never know what to recommend. This will be a good resource for those situations.

Also makes me reflect a little on how spoiled I've become with having to have perfect everything and chasing that....more

Riding since 88 and you never attained enough fitness to make climbs at least tolerable?

Your article was enlightening. I have been struggling to understand the antipathy towards e-bikes and I think you've highlighted it - culture. There would appear to be a feeling that e-bikes don't fit an idealized notion of mountain bike culture and might bring people to the trails who aren't like “us" - who...more

Do you have any proof that it isn't true? from what I've seen i think he nailed it. Most pros only post pics and videos of e-bikes to please sponsors. kinda like how a lot of pros posted pics of fat bikes and plus sized tires in the past even though behind the scenes it was common knowledge that no pros used...more

The problem is they will hurt trail access. I've seen plenty of e-bikers out on the trails that WILL hurt themselves and/or others because the barrier of MTB being hard (to get to the top at least and cover ground) is almost non-existent with an e-bike. They have no clue what they're doing out there. More hikers...more

So the BACK COUNTRY HORSEMEN OF AMERICA are suing the UNITED STATES FOREST SERVICE for allow eMTB class-1 on 132 miles of non-motorized trails. One of their key points is safety do to speed of a eMTB (Max 20mph), shit a horse with a human on it's back can reach speeds of 40mph, just another joke of a lawsuit. tongue

The paid brand ambassadors you mean? Take away the sponsorship obligations and "pros" wouldn't ride an e-bike. But you go right ahead...

I am 78 this year and after 13 surgeries from a climbing incident now have a blue permanent hang tag for the rear view mirror.
I can still do almost everything I formerly did but am restricted to the length of time and distance and exertion it takes to do it.
I have been avid at MTB since Gary Fisher days.

Pretty tired of seeing 6k builds with heavy cassette options. These price range bikes should have XO cassette, not GX.

No price. No link to it on the site.
Also, I still don't get "DWR" jackets for actual riding. I'm either caught out in the rain or snow or I'm not and stretch water resistant DWR is good for about 15 minutes before you're wearing a soggy, heavy spandex bag.

Great bike for a little shredder. On a side note, interesting how the frame only option is 1k, while the sentinel or adult bikes are double the prices. Obviously a little shock upgrade, and more material, but a 1k increase is crazy.
