Why Pinkbike is Covering eMTBs This Week
@WAKIdesigns: Alex Jones, what does a hot Welsh TV presenter have to do with Germans or E-Bikes?

Why Pinkbike is Covering eMTBs This Week
@brianpark: "Keep in mind that the reason manufacturers are working so hard and yelling so loudly on this is because it brings new people (and money) into the sport." . They only think it will bring new people into the sport. I'm expecting it to turn out like Fatbikes and Plusbikes, a few brands will get it right, they'll sell a bunch of bikes and keep selling bikes over time. The rest of the industry will end up sat on piles of inventory they can't even sell at half price. High end E-bikes only truly appeal to people who want a high end bike in the first place, which is a smaller market than many brand managers would like to believe. . On that note I've been seeing E-Bikes about, they're almost all either a Haibike, a Specialized or Moustache. Two guys in their sixties went past me on Haibikes this weekend. Don't tell anyone but I thought they looked pretty nice too.

Cannondale don't stock spares for things fifteen years after they went out of production (or even three), Hope do.

I think the meaning you took was the exact oppossite of the words written down. I'm not sure how the words comfortable, amazing, superb and natural can appear in the ride section and you can arrive at a negative conclusion. It's interesting/amusing how sizing has shifted to quickly that an XL bike with 47cm reach and 123cm wheelbase is considered short, three years ago it would have been bigger than anything that wasn't a Mondraker. It does look gorgeous though.

Spank's Foam Filled Rim Promises Better Reliability and Feel - Crankworx Whistler 2017
If it works as well as the bars do, it'll work pretty damn well. When is Pinkbike getting a set or three to test then?

Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
@humoroususername: I don't think that's fair to describe a World Cup Champion, Junior World Cup and World Champion as lazy. Ratboy won his first international races in 2006, he's been competing at that level for over a decade and sooner or later the train-race-train-race lifestyle must lose it's shine. Some guys are willing to live like a monk indefinitely if it means they can keep winning, because winning is why they do it. Bryceland is evidently drawn more to the thrill of riding his bike fast than the thrill of standing on top of the podium, so why would he keep torturing himself week in week when he's already done that? He strikes me as having been very sensible, too many athletes keep going until they fade or get hurt, Ratboy gets to go an enjoy his 'retirement' at 27 and ride on his own terms.

@neimbc: Ratboy stopped World Cups because he was getting frustrated with the training and schedule ruling his life more than riding bikes, he simply wasn't into it anymore. I think it's on Dirt but there's an interview where he explains his decision. The carbon emmisions thing was just trolling.
