Staff Rides: The N+1 Bikes of Pinkbike Editors
Don't think too hard about it. They are just baby steps (or a flat bar...) away from mountain biking. Let everyone go towards the light at their own pace. They will get there eventually. It's how we all go mountain bikes originally. Just be cool and welcome them to the club at their own pace.

New U.S. Congress Bill Proposes a Tax Rebate for E-Bike Purchases
I ride both e and non-e. I don't commute to work on a bike. It would be a big ride even with an e-bike. However, the e-bike has reduced the amount I drive to the trailhead. Not sure where you draw the morality line, but I think there are recreational users, that with this the benefit, will contribute to less cars on the road to some degree.

I think you answered your cost of frame only question with this - "...it pushed you to buy a full build..."

Calfee Show Off Upcoming California-Made Carbon Hardtail
I can't look at the bike... My instincts are to find the poison oak in the picture. Surely it must be there but I can't find it!

First Ride: Fox's New 38 Fork - Pond Beaver 2020
@WAKIdesigns: This sums thing up pretty well. I think people lose sight that 15mm came about to replace 9mm road style QR's, not to replace 20mm. Now with 15 so prevalent, if anyone were to release a long travel fork for anything but a DH bike, and you want to convert over the parts you have from another bike (wheels...,) it's likely much easier if it is 15mm. The stiffness changes are likely minimal between axles and most wheels are 15mm. Sticking to 15 at this point is better for the customer with less things to change actually.

2006 Santa Cruz Nomad, Size Small, Black Ano w/ 36 VAN This bike was built for my wife to use as her bike park bike way back in 2006. It's done a week in Whistler and a few days at Northstar. It's spent most of its life beyond that hanging on a wall in my garage. Would make a great first All Mtn rig for a smaller rider or kid. Bike shifts great. Front brake needs rework/bleed. Everything else is in good working order. Component highlights - Frame: Gen 1 Nomad, 6000 Series Aluminum, Small Fork: FOX 36 VAN 160mm travel (Coveted coil 36 is in great working order! Anodized knobs show a fade but work just fine.) Shock: FOX DHX 5.0 Headset: Chris King Brakes: Hayes Cranks: RaceFace 2x Cockpit: Mix of Easton and RF Der/Shifters: SRAM X0 More details on frame geometry and component interface sizing can be found at the link on the Santa Cruz site: https://www.santacruzbicycles.com/en-US/bike/nomad/1
