And here I thought most of the e-MTB haters were on Pinkbike...

Aside from whatever laws are in place in certain locations, I don't get why so many people have the need to try to dictate what can be ridden on a mountain, what makes you "part of mainstream culture" or what-not. Does it really bother you so much...more

Pros only riding ebikes for commercial is simply not true. So
Many pros use ebikes because they’re just fun. They just don’t show it on their daily insta. The Cycling market is driven by Europe and they understand ebikes. This article shows that it’s still a long way to go for the US and especially for US...more

I've been mountain biking for quite awhile now (1988). I've owned many different bikes over the years, DH, Freeride, Enduro, trai, etc. I recently bought an Ebike and I will never go back to a mechanical/traditional mtb.
I've found climbing to actually be creative and FUN now!-having the ability to pop off of...more

No noise so far. I had one on my Nukeproof Mega29 a couple years ago and it was quiet as well

I messed the weight - it is at 14kg without pedals. It is definitely lighter than the Genius I had last year though.

For the coil shock, yes I can use the switch, you need to flip it 180 degrees on that shock

Great questions rather than a stock 10 same questions for everyone. It helps to see the insight to the people who really know how to pin it consistently. Most of it seems mental but also being able to read lines to gain advantages. Good stuff!

I had a ZS56 lower cup mounted on at first on my small frame. While installing the tapered fork, I realized there was play in the headset. After taking it apart, it appeared the tapered steerer was too long to fit the headtube. Rockshox and Fox changed their tapered standard length but Formula being a smaller brand has not yet. Was putting the bike together friday noght and leaving today, I had to find a quick fix with parts from home. Only way was to put an external cup to raise length of headtube. Problem is EC56 only exists as part of angleset. I had a 0° lower cup laying around from a previous built. Increasing headtube from the bottom also makes the bike a little slacker.
Lots of my friends who are racing on HD3 are using 1° angleset though.
I'll decide when I come back from NZ if I do it too or not.

I put it in grams (coming from Euroland) and it automatically converted it to lbs - and ounces apparently.
