 Lemme make it clear that I don't like the fact that e-bikes will be part of the future. I earn my turns in a state where shuttling and bike parks are common place (one degree removed from e-bikes). I'm just merely pointing out that it is happening and there is nothing that the "purists" can do about it. To my horror I just saw the specialized lineup and boom, there it was!

 As trails become more and more pussy, riders are rewarded for doing more and more basic things, jumps get smaller, obsticals become rarer, yes this is the future. No need for bb hight, as there's no roots or rocks to catch on anymore. Padded seats because there's no reason to stand up off the saddle anymore either. I predict suspension will disapear soon too. As will dirt, replaced with concrete paths that have been coated with hand sanitizer and a spray of febreeze for that final touch.

 I'm an optimist on this one. As the capability of bikes continues to improve, riders will seek out, ride and build more challenging trails. As long as we keep xc weenies from dumbing down trails the future is bright in Colorado.

 160mm HARDTAILS BOMBING DOWN ROCKY ROOTY DUSTY RUTTED OUT SHIT TRAILS FROM HELL!!! seriously tho, thats what we have in san diego, and as long as the dirts this shitty and the rain damages the trails as it does, its all we will ever have

 now that there's concrete that water flows right through I don't see the need for dirt trails or bikes with suspensions. trails will last forever and bikes will be less expensive it's really a no-brainer

 Boost 2.0 standard rear spacing?
  • 4 0
 Actually, jokes aside, the rear wheel axle's 188mm is very well for symmetrical hub's flanges placement and for the spokes' lengths.
This is what should be done far long ago.
Of course for this lenght the diameter should be bigger to have same rigidness(or more) I'd wanted it to be L:188mm x OD:24mm x ID: 12mm hollow.

 I say "rape" because a bastard offspring as hideous as what we see here can't possibly the result of a consensual relationship.
