Hmmmmm now this kinda makes sense more now to a newbie such as myself

Dont they weigh a ton cause of battery and motor plus how the eck would that translate on trail to feel like I wonder

On some eBikes the extra weight is really noticeable. On the good ones (Specialized, Pivot and a certain Canadian company) they descend like regular bikes, just a little more planted. With the right motor they climb like really fast regular bikes as well- you dont really notice the extra torque with a good motor.

They handle surprisingly well. They have a tonne of grip and handling the heavier bike is definitely good for your pedal bike riding.

Just watch Free Solo. Outrageously good doco, crazy to see how Alex deals with the climb mentally.

Anyone else seen it?


I went to to go see it at the premier in London. Seen it a few times now and still blows my mind

3 times,

And even though I remember hearing about it the day he did it and seeing him multiple times before and in between those showings I still get gripped watching it.

Just rode the Firebird 29 I'm demoing at Trestle bike park....f*ck it's an awesome ride, 10/10 would recommend (I don't even like most 29ers).

I'm off enduro racing today. The plan is to finish, which I should do, it's a mash up event, 3 stages any order, any amount of times within the time limit.

Those are good fun. Make sure you double check the rules on the order you can do the stages in, one I went to you couldn't do, for example, 111222333 it had to be more 132312 etc

I'm interested to try one of those. Is it BPW?

Yeah i own it and everytime i watch it it’s puckering. favorite movie of 2018 for sure.

i rode a Zerode yesterday and it was super sick. firebird 29 is next on my list. but honestly that ripmo aluminum is making more and more sense

This one was much more relaxed, any stage any order.
