Sam Pilgrim Signs with Haibike
@DownhillDemon17: I’m not unfollowing him because he rides an eMTB, I’m unfollowing him because he is shilling for an eMTB company. I disagree with Haibike’s world view that eMTB’s are just MTB’s and not motorized bicycles and I disagree with his choice to help promote that world view as I feel it is damaging to my local MTB ecosystem. Saying that this is primarily a problem in the US and therefore why should he care is a bit like saying “I’m buying this diamond for my girlfriend because she and her friends think it is cool. Why should I care what affect this purchase will have in South Africa?” Not on the same plane of damage, but in the same realm of willful ignorance. But, as you say, I’m only tossing a small petty pebble in the general direction of a very large pond.

@DownhillDemon17: you are right. I am one of what? 500k followers...oh wait...YouTube, insta, FB, etc...more like 5 of 500k. Still not much of a dent. I imagine I’m not the only one with this reaction thought even if I’m certain he isn’t bothered. But then again, if he loses 1/2 of his active followers does Haibike pay him the same? I think that would bother anyone.

@RedBurn: btw: I upvoted you, it could easily be seen as douchey

@RedBurn: No, quite the opposite. I believe he will ride a hard tail DJ and I believe he will still be one of the raddest dudes out there. I enjoy his feeds. Sucks to do it, but I have only a few ways to let the industry and riders know how I feel. Forum discussion is useless because it is mostly unnecessary vitriol, I actively vote with my dollars, and I actively vote with my time/following social media. I believe that riders should vet their sponsors as much as sponsors vet their riders.

@BenParfitterole: uplifts / shuttling have near zero effect on trail access issues (I’d say zero but happen to know of a poorly thought out shuttle spot that caused some issues with local trail access). Uplifts occur at for-profit trail centers - no access issues and the increased density is accompanied by increases trail work. I think e-bikes for commuting are genius and even for fire road exploration but for single track MTB? Kind of like giant motor homes with TV’s and bars for camping...it doesn’t make any sense to me to bring all of that shit with you to be “in-nature”.

2017 Pinkbike Awards: Athlete of the Year
@uphill-blues: I would have thought so...just watched the US Olympic qualifier. They were talking about heart rates getting up to 180 and needing to be back down to rest for a throw in 25seconds. If they aren’t doping now, they will be.

Trek Session 9.9 DH 27.5 - Review
@yzedf: and location of course...$80k minimum to start in Silicon Valley if you are out of a reputable school with at least one relevant internship... @slimboyjim: But, even if it were $50k, $2M doesn’t hire 40. It hires 20...easiest to estimate the per worker cost to your business as 2x their salary by the time you pay incidental costs, benefits and insurance. Also figure in one manager/supervisor per 5 engineers and your costs go up quickly.
