Started new thread Question: Modular Standard/Ebike? 9/17/2020 9:28 PM

So working on Bosch and Shimano system ebikes recently it occurred to me that since the drive unit and battery are both relatively easy to remove in about 10 minutes, you could in theory have a bolt on "Dummy" BB without the battery and run it as a standard ... more ยป

XL frame maybe with a very low seat mast?

Riders should have to pass a test on the effects of low and high speed damping before being allowed to buy a modern shock. It's crazy to me that even at some bike shops this remains a mystery. There are SO many people out there on crazy expensive bikes with...more

Damn, poor Marine, it sounds terrible. A friend I used to work with had it in march. She's 29, super healthy, no previous respiratory issues. West coast surfer/climber girl who was finishing up law school with honors. 6 months later and shes still dealing ... more ยป

Morgane and Sabrina are sisters. The bike they ride is an Astro Catalogue bike labeled as a Peugeot. It's the exact same bike that KHS sells as the 6600 and from what I can find its sold all around the world as different labeled versions of the same bike. In fact, in the "pit...more

Where are you located? Ghost seems to have redesigned the chainstays without the internal routing that created the weak point at the yoke weld

Amazing, huge for Jesse and even bigger for Jack, I think he had a lot to prove after what happened to him this winter. Switching racing disciples last minute in the off season, even if a longer one, would not be easy even if you had a plan together. I think Canyon will appreciate the chance they took on him.

Peugeot has an Enduro team? WTF are they riding? I only see a terrible looking enduro-ish e-bike with even more terrible geo.

Also is Morgane Jonnier related to Sabina?

Ouch, that's a hard one. Hopefully she makes a full recovery quickly.

I feel like Jack is one of the younger fast and loose racers still. I'm sure he can find a room or van and rock it for the winter. As well narrowly not having a team this year may be pushing him to push his worth to Canyon for giving him the last minute ... more ยป

Yea that doesn't sound worth it at all. Do some media projects for the season, local races and train. Is Troy racing? I haven't heard anything about him yet.
