I'm not an engineer, I'm just an idiot with a somewhat educated opinion that quickly deteriorates to ignorance.

Point: E-Bikes Are Good for the Sport
I think E-bikes are great. Here at the shop we have a cruiser, dual sport and MTB E-bike. The only one I fear is the dedicated mountain bike. The other ones really help folks with prior injuries or maybe physical disability get out and ride hard pack gravel nature trails or rides along the beach and of course for commuting... But the E-bike? It worries me a little more being as I have already found a guy at our local trails riding around and just smashing up climbs on his E-bike and eating up the softer trails. Now obviously not every E-biker has disregard for vulnerable trails and just goes up and trashes trails but it's showing that there are already folks doing so. Also, I like Strava, I like all my buddies and I striving to be in the top 10 of all the climbs and descents. It's fun chirping eachother if someone beats someone by a few seconds and what not... With E-bikes, fucking forget it unless there is a way to tell if they are on an E-bike no sense going after a KOM if buddy with record did it with team BOSCHE on his side lol. I think the whole fucking anti E-bike thing really doesn't go much farther than Pinkbike... When people come into my shop, just average folks (the 98% of people coming to a bike shop)they see these bikes and immediately gravitate towards them... So why wouldn't I sell them a fucking 4000 dollar bike if that's what they want? Remember want and need are different but a "need" doesn't sell as well.

Rémy Métailler Signs Two-Year Deal with Cube
Not only a great deal for Remy but an even better one for CUBE. To not only have their DH team giving feedback on the Two15 HPA but now a guy who professionally rides bikes at a world class Bike park with trails that range from flat out fast to suspension ruining chunder gives CUBE nearly year round testing in all environments and will also give them some great insight in the longevity of frame bits and other hardware.

Trek Slash 9.9 29 RSL - Review
I really wish people would go out and try the new Bontrager component lineup. Their new stuff is easily as good as any of the boutique brand components. I have the privilege of working at a trek dealer and getting some pretty wicked hookups when it comes to bikes and components so it only makes sense for me to ride as much Bontrager stuff as I can. I have been pretty blown away with what Bontrager is offering. The fit, finish and performance has been awesome which I cant say has always been the truth... but man for 2017 they have been killing it. Oh and the new SE4 and SE5 tire, goddam they are fantastic tires. I think its safe to say that from now and into the future the big names in Mountain biking, Trek, Specialized, Giant... etc are going to produce better and better components every year and until we start seeing side by side comparisons its going to be hard for people to argue who's components are better, aftermarket or in house? I totally understand people wanting to see maybe a RF bar and stem combo bikes like these... But lets also look at it that if you come in with an issue with your bike, your shop can get problems resolved far quicker being as they only need to contact one company for everything. Since working at the shop I have been pretty impressed by how well Trek and Bontrager takes care of warranty issues and or any other issues our customers have come in with. I'm not telling anyone that they need to drink all the Kool-aid but maybe if you get a chance at least try a sip.
