Jeff, The big thing for me is recovery and avoiding over training.  That's the biggest thing I struggle with.  I think many of us can find a plethora of advice on exercises and...

I wonder if he needs a custom seat to accompany those massive b@lls
Okay, I see your argument now. So is a viable solution limiting power output? Similar to how some race cars are not street legal? Any ebike/e-dirtbike over a (conservative) engine level not allowed on singletrack? The easy solution is a blanket wide ban but that's similar to how bikes have been banned from wilderness areas…
@dtimms, I get what you are saying. I honestly don't know enough about nor have I ever seen an electric dirt-bike to really make any comment about them. I too have a SS so I can relate to you there. That difficulty level is our personal choice however. Just because we prefer a certain difficulty…
@dtimms so is it merely a matter of bike classification that is the problem with ebikes on the trail? Is that any different than an xc bike vs a downhill bike? I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm just curious what the revolt is about.
There are some riders out there (not me) that are just as fast as some people on an ebike. So if they aren't loud like a dirtbike (just as quiet as a normal bike) and aren't spewing out exhaust and it's merely a matter of speed, then do we need to regulate how fast people…
Oh boy, here we go. So I want to start by saying I pedal all of my bikes. I'm a racer, I train year round and bust my a$$ to be in shape and the best rider I can be and get on the podium. I earn all of my climbs. That being said, earlier…

I've long shared the belief of staying off wet trails. However since moving to West Virginia 3 summers ago, the trails here NEVER dry out. Amazingly they stay muddy year round. When I moved here I thought I'd be getting some wicked back country riding in. Sadly I've basically had to retire my mountain bike…
@Jeff Barber- Doesn't the strap around your waist dig into your stomach? Especially when it's hot out? I'm skinny but the thought of a strap digging into my stomach vs my shoulders seems less than appealing. I'd have to assume there is a fine line between it being too tight and being uncomfortable vs too…
I'd bet a pretty penny that if hip packs had dominated the scene over the past dozen years or so and then backpack hydration packs started popping up, riders would be flocking to the backpacks. Hip packs come across as nothing but trendy to me. They can't hold as much and they bounce around much…
Horrible news. Life is so fickle, I hope Jared makes a speedy recovery and gets his life back to where it was.

Jeff I think there is some truth to the new rider aspect.  Most riders don't carry the tool they need until that one time they break down and they need it, after...

@ Sean Gordon-  Yeah I was nervous at first dropping down low on the bars, so I had them rotated up.  I've since rolled them down to a neutral position.   I've since joined...
