I Say "E-bike", You Say... - Sea Otter 2016
I worked as a mechanic in different bike shops in Switzerland and the last 2.5 years in Zermatt (on of the best enduro regions of Switzerland when it come to riding hiking paths, switchbacks and so on. check the videos here on pinkbike). We were the biggest bike shop in town and sold something around 400 bikes/year wich about 1/3 of them were E-bike (either hardtail or full suspension Mountain bikes) Mountainbiking was rapidly growing at the time in Zermatt as many locals and hanging seasoneers were finding it as a great alternative to skiing in the summer. I no nobody or heard of nobody ever riding on the trails we normally rode with e-bikes and can not see the problem becoming one. Even tho those bikes have 100-160mm of suspension on the front/back the people aren't even considering riding on the trails there. Only on wider gravel paths that would be boring for every real biker. E-bikes are a great advantage for many purposes, such a replacing a car in a smaller town if you aren't transporting anything big, even companies are using E-bikes more and more to move around. I dont see why everybody is so paranoid now that they will get kicked of a trail because somebody else bought an E-bike. People are scared of everything today.

Inside Ion
now thats what i call a great PR team :) I think that kneepads/other protection is like a pair of jeans, some fit better and others just dont. Not the companys fault, its just the specific shape of a certain model that wont fit for person but fit great for Person B. For sure a producer tries to make their stuff fit for as many riders as possible but you never can make anybody happy! and having a model range that fits everybody is sometimes just to expensive... just never stop innovating!

Inside Cube Bikes
because murica is not the only market in the world. i think the american market is pretty satisfied at the moment (compared to other country markets) so its only wise from cube to first observe before jumping in to it! long term business strategy doesnt contain eating every cookie you can get!
