Added reply in a thread Would You Pay to Watch More World Cup DH on Red Bull TV? 6/2/2019 11:55 PM

I would pay to kick Red Bull out of the loop. I think it's really unhealthy to MTB to depend so much on an external private company. Obviously, Red Bull is doing amazing to develop the sport and their athletes but keep in mind their motivation is not ... more »

I would say more likely 34lbs or more, not a lot of carbon on this rig. aluminum, 12-speed GX, not of these are light, prepare to push some weight..

Added a comment about press release Josh Bryceland Officially on Cannondale, Hints at DH Racing - Exclusive Interview 1/8/2019 6:34 PM

It will be interesting to see how Cannondale combine this new "jib in the forest with my buddies brands" with their current "I rock my spandex and my 19lbs carbon scalpel". I reckOn they have a decent market share in the weight weenies xc crowd. Are they going to be able to keep both aspects within the same brand?

Added reply in a thread Have You Gone from 27.5 to 29er But Then Back to 27.5? 12/14/2017 4:06 PM

There is obviously a lot more to a bike than its wheelsize but I believe it's probably the property having the most impact in the riding experience, it is such a dynamic component interfacing the rider and the terrain. It explains why there is much more ... more »

Added reply in a thread Have You Gone from 27.5 to 29er But Then Back to 27.5? 12/14/2017 9:20 AM

I had a 29er xc hardtail for a really long time so I had a glimpse of a feel on how good is it to sit in the wheels instead of over the wheels. My first full suspension was a 29er stumpy and i could feel it was faster in some situation but it was really ... more »

Who care about MTB racing? MTB racers. At this point, it's a participation sports. We need more racing at any level to get more racers. What's about having an amateur worldcup categories? with juniors and more women? and junior or am racers can ramp ... more »

Yes, that's touchy and the more E-MTB I see, the angrier I'am.
They might be fun (like kissing your cousin!) but they are wrong!
I rode some and I even own one for commuting but still think they are the lamest fucking millenials bastard version of mtb!
Sure they move quick going up but they kill the feedback you have from the terrain. Where is this holy exchange of energy between your muscle and the ground! It just feel like I got my challenge stolen when the motor kicks in. Now, what about going down? They are heavy and ride like sh*it: the worst Dh bike from 20 years ago. Lame Up, Lame Down!
More seriously, traditionally cycling has been about having lighter bikes (and the simplest/purest in some ways), being stronger and having more skills then being able to tackle more difficult terrain. It's never has been about making everything easier. It's not our DNA!
I'm sorry but e-bikes are not part of this CULTURE, they don't belong to the family. That's it!
If you are about going as fast as possible with a motor then do it right with a real moto: supercross, motoGP-> makes sense and it will get my respect. You want fun without exercise, jerk on some videogames!
Riding an half moped/half bicycle it not a good use of your time either if your intent is cycling or moto-ing.
Are we really helping people by pretending they can have a real mtb experience without putting effort!
Is everything easy and free. Is it cool to be lazy now?
Should we accept people if we don't share the same values! Usually, that's the not the American Way!
