From the Top: Michael Prell of Cube Bikes
How do they force you to buy new stuff and upgrade? Constantly? Do they come to your house and kidnap your family till you upgrade? The only thing that 'forces' us to upgrade is the upgrade bug that is part of human nature. He said you can ride a 20 year old bike and still enjoy the sport. I'm pretty sure most trails people ride today are mostly unchanged (natural ones) in 20 years so why are you forced to upgrade? Because you want to. Nothing is phased out. Hell you can still buy square taper bottom brackets so if you want to stick with what you got your safe. I thought he was genuine and honest. A rare trait amongst the other people who ARE trying to convince you that last year's thing is no good anymore.

Now THAT Was a Bike - 2000 Trek Fuel
THAT was a bike alright. A crappy ugly one! This is no classic.

People of Whistler Bike Park - Opening Day Edition
I'm always baffled with these photo epic things as to how people afford all these expensive bikes, equipment and still can afford to go to whistler! I gave up dreaming long ago about owning bikes like these and going on trips to whistler, don't understand how it's possible. 25 years mountain biking and the only biking I have done outside my home is 1 day at Mammoth Mountain on a normal holiday. My life sucks! Whine over..

I Say "E-bike", You Say... - Sea Otter 2016
Yet another idiot that thinks e-bikes have throttle and not pedals. You just wasted a lot of time writing that when you instantly pointed out you have no idea what your on about. Your thinking of motorbikes. FFS, these bikes stand no chance with people who rant on about things they don't even understand.

@nicolai12: Nikolai12. Your truly comparing an e-bike with a moto.. you really think you can lay down roost in a berm or chew up a trail uphill?! Haha. .as with most keyboard junkies here, clearly haven't ridden one or have any idea what they are capable (or incapable) of.

I agree with D-man. To many closed minded people on here... not that that's surprising. Same people who probably moaned about 15mm axles and dropper posts and 29ers and disc brakes..

So many closed minded fools here. An e-bike is not a motor bike. You cannot just sit there and twist a throttle. Also, I think I'm safe to say that a powerful pro rider can produce as much power as one. And go faster than most e-bikes too.. people saying ride them with the moto's are dumb, you really think a moto rider wants a bicycle doing 20kph going round a track where they are doing 100 kph? Yeah, that sounds safe! I have ridden e-bikes, I'm not some uneducated fool who just thinks he knows what they are. Like the last guy said, it's like Tivo, it helps you just speed up the dull bits to enjoy the rest. Whilst PEDALLING!. Because I think it's clear most people think e-bikes are just mini-motos or something that just require no rider input. And, what happens when the battery dies? You have 25kg mtb. That will make you fit. And, get this, it's surprising I'm sure you'll, agree, you can't turn them off!!! Imagine that! You can actually ride under human power too! Whatever next! Get off your high horses ass holes. I'm in my 25th year of mountain biking, longer than many on here have been alive, and I say they are fine if that what you want to do. I have made it up climbs I have never made on other bikes, even on a bike way too small for me. And I find it much more fun to maintain spend ththan pedal endlessly whilst tired. I don't own one, but I would. Probably a fat bike e-bike because I find fat bikes need some assistance when used for there intended purpose anyway.

The Pro's Closet with Greg Herbold - Video
Guys really mellowed out since his younger days. He's really digging the RC stuff though which is cool. Anyone who has seen Re-Tread will have seen his section with 'HB's school for cross training' where he has a nitro RC and dune buggy. I was so jealous of that guy then, I assume this was filmed at the same place too? Legend

Wyn TV: Lourdes Track Walk 2016 - Video
Am I the only person who just finds this painful to watch? Like he's trying so hard to be funny and sarcastic and in the end just fails. I skipped half the video only to watch it anyway after someone mentioned Palmers was in it.
