My trails

I live in a very mountain bike centric place where the trails were built by riders. It is understood that the climbing rider yields unless it's on one of the 2 "climbing" trails. In practice there is not climbing on the faster trails during busy periods. It seems to work well and everyone is courteous…
This sounds like a headline from The Onion. Surely a sign that the end is near.
This is absolutely wrong because neither of these have a motor.
So true, there are ones capable of 50mph now. Who's going to police this?
A bicycle doesn't have a motor. Call it a moped, motor and pedals.
They have more in common with scooters, mopeds, and motorcycles than bicycles.
This is hilarious reading numbers from 2 years ago. The past 2 years has seen plenty of change and now Mondraker's crazy forward geometry is now mainstream. I predict continued change in geometry;).
There are cyclists and there are motorcyclists. Putting an "e" in front of it does not make it a bicycle.
I like the San Quentin, but at 5'9" I would need a large to match my other bikes fit and geometry. Unfortunately the long seat tube prevents my from fitting a dropper on the SQ. Fix this and I would recommend it.
How are you going to limit it? Why are people so lazy?
I did a 2 minute google search and found them. How you gonna stop it once it starts? https://www.instructables.com/id/50-Mph-E-Bike/ https://www.electricbike.com/10-fastest-ebikes/ https://www.treehugger.com/bikes/neematics-powerful-50-mph-fr1-breaks-e-bike-mold.html
I'm 60 and appalled that people can be so lazy. Motor = motorcycle, not bicycle. There are motors that can go 50mph, you want to share the trail with those?
You should check out the Pipedream Moxie. I have one and it's incredible. I am riding it here on Vancouver Island more than my Knolly Endorphin, yes it is that much fun.
Washington leads the way.

I don't listen to music while riding and I certainly don't want to hear whatever aural garbage others are in to.  If you must, wear buds to spare others the annoyance, you...

I had G Forms and hated them.  I found they didn't conform to my knees at all.  I have had a couple pair of POC and they really fit well on my...

I will not buy a frame that doesn't have long reach, low BB, slack HTA, steep STA, room for my 160mm Revive, and a bottle mount.  There are too many options out...
Great common sense legislation.

After having Gravity Droppers, Reverbs, and KS, the Revive is my favourite. What Aaron didn't mention is that the user can order parts direct, and rebuild this at home. A big bonus for me. My KS was at Suspension Werx for months waiting for parts, and if it wasn't for a loaner from my awesome…
I've had Reverbs, KS, and demoed a Transfer. I would not trade my Bikeyoke Revive for anything, check the review of this post. Smooth as butter, reliable, and rebuildable at home:)

commented on 10 Tips for Mountain Biking in the Rain
Where I live it's wet almost 1/2 the year, and a lot of trails hold up quite well. One thing never mentioned in these articles are rear fenders, or mudguards. I keep a Marshguard or similar on the front year round, because it keeps my stanchions cleaner, and helps with the spray. On the rear…
I have owned Reverbs, KS Levs, and now a Bikeyoke Revive. The Revive has been problem free for 4 months, which isn't much yet, and the action/feel is much better. It is rebuildable at home, with no special tools, which is huge for me. I have a sagging KS that is not worth the money…
This is not a list of the best posts, but more a list of popular posts. The best posts aren't in widespread use yet, and will never get the OEM contracts that the big makers do.
