Opinion: How Many Batteries Does a Mountain Bike Really Need?
I run a Remedy with a SON Dynamo hub. It takes about 5W of my energy to produce 3W of electrickery. The drag is barely noticable if I turn on the front light. This is more than enough power to keep all these electronic doohickeys charged, but my bike is happily analog. If my legs can move, I have light at night. It's actually kind of liberating. I hate having to charge stuff before a ride. So eBikes make no sense to me.

Pinkbike Poll: What Was the Greatest Advancement In Mountain Bike Technology?
I've never had a chain come off my 2x since they invented clutch derailleurs, so I don't get this one. Having less gears seems like regression.

Pinkbike Poll: What Was the Greatest Advancement In Mountain Bike Technology?
@lacuna: I think the Dropper Post is the 1 thing unique to Mountain Biking that's massively improved Ergonomics. You now have a machine that can instantly adapt to going downhill or uphill. It keeps the human in the right position to maintain their flow. Mine is currently knackered (because Reverb) and while I still ride everything (with a QR), it's a royal pain in the arse.

Spotted: Wireless Electronic Suspension from RockShox
Hackers have locked out my suspension again and there's no Bitcoin on this mountain. Bugger.
