Some interesting discussion..

I don't necessarily think that they are 2 different sports, but they do appeal to different groups. The traditional bike riders tend to enjoy the suffering a bit. The ebike takes away that suffering. It makes things more accessible to more people.. But, there is a downside to that... Your Moab story is a good example... Some of these people don't have any respect for the outdoors.

Will the ebike kill the mountain bike? Probably not. If they could hit $2500, it would see sales jump... But, what would they have to sacrifice to get there? If money wasn't an issue, I would get one. But, I would like to get my wife one.. And, at one point, age will catch up with me, so at some point, there will be one in my future.

Cool story.. I have a customer who bought a ebike back in November and has lost 100lbs since then... The ebike let's him ride every day. And now he's building up regular bikes to get add to his ebike...

Funny @yahmon a web link to a site that looks to be run by a 'privileged' upper class women who's main goal appears to be shaming all things 'white'. That said, several native Americans in my friend group and not a single one find the use in this particular case offensive. Up tight...more

Added a comment about video Do You Lose Air When Removing the Shock Pump? 6/10/2020 8:17 AM

I guess I should have put quotation marks around lose since there isn't a pressure loss, but just an equalizing of the two chambers...

Yes, I know that you don't lose pressure removing the pump... I have spent 15 or so years explaining that concept to people...

Basically , we are both arguing the same side of the argument right now... However, doing what I did and leaving the pump on might make the concept of what's happening a little more clear to some people.

Of course... you could potentially lose more air out of the air chamber cycling it than removing the pump...

Well of course. You added air to the positive chamber, cycled it, the positive and negative chambers equalized in pressures. This is done by air transfer between the two, meaning you lost some air in the positive chamber to the negative one. Therefore you lost pressure.

Interesting tidbit... I left my pump on as I equalized the positive and negative chambers... That resulted in approximately a 5psi loss in the positive chamber on the rear shock... It wasn't as dramatic on the fork..

@Bizutch I believe I still have some posters... The email files I left behind to stay out of trouble at home.. But, alot of that stuff got shared, so I'm sure someone might still have it. But, I'm not sure if anyone would fess up since nobody wants to get in trouble. I did just find a ton of jerseys from those days that I'm thinking of throwing online to see if they might sell...

The Schrader valve on the shock usually closes at about a 1/4 turn when disconnecting... Just something to keep in mind..

You're losing that 15psi when you re-attach the pump - the 200psi in the shock expands into the hose and, thus, only reads 185 because of the expansion. Either that or there is something wrong with your pump or valve. A 15psi "loss" from the piggy back of that shock is...more

Keep an eye on the Switch pivot... Those are notorious for seizing..

The first time I tried it, reversing the button functions was my first thought..Seems like it would be more intuitive to me..

Additional benefit, it could be a setup that can last through several bikes... Buy a bike with say GX, add AXS shifter, oooops, I mean controller, derailleur and seatpost... When time to sell bike, put brand new parts back on bike...

I'm currently on a 2020 Trance Advanced 1... Super fun bike.. I got a chance to demo one of the new Reign 29ers... Rides nice.. I would consider on to replace my Slash...

For a shorter travel travel trail bike, the Giant Trance 3 has a pretty good spec for $2100..
