For a given pressure that is roughly correct, but the primary benefit of an air shock is spring rate tuneability via pressure changes. That is why I mentioned adding a few psi to my shocks when I remove volume spacers. I'm shifting the force curve upward along the force axis. These graphs...more

Looks like there's a little dogbone link that connects below the link pivot andd below the swingarm pivot. That way the swingarm is pulling back on the bottom of the link. Nice, clean, way to get a progressive curve and low mounted mass. Hard to tell but swingarm pivot seems to be well-placed, too. With it right next to the tire like that you can get a negative slope to the antisquat curve. 10/10 would ride, though the heel clearance looks a bit lacking.

I find the 'more laps, more fun' argument a cheap cop out for e-bikes. I wanna go to Mt. Everest during my lunch break. Why can't I? Huh??

Plus who says you're not going to be sweaty from a MTB ride. By that logic, go for an MX run, you'll be able to sleep half the way through it!

Freedom and equality really means the right to rip as much trail as possible. You can pry my e-bike from my aging, wrinkled hands. I won't be denied a reprisal of my youthful reality. That's what Ms. Rosa Parks was going on about, right?

this already exists. If you're legit ADA you can already take motorized wheelchairs/adaptive devices in many places. the access argument gets awkward with e-bikes though, because they require balance and some strength to ride, so what we're then saying is that everyone legally deserves to have a certain quality of experience as we age, rather than pure access, which might not be compatible with realities of life. it's different than ADA, which serves to help disabled/mobility-impaired people from becoming second class citizens.

@Benton I will accept that carbon is overpriced fiberglass if you accept that titanium is overpriced lead.

250 grams is .6 of a pound? How much does a half pound of feathers weigh anyway

Well, I have a Yari with luftkappe, so it's basically all spring

Scary rubber though. Great tread pattern, nice casing, good size, great price- everything is perfect except for the super springy rubber. Would run it on the rear for sure, never again on the front.
