Alicia Leggett's 2024 Predictions
I watch "YouTube athletes" because some have amazing abilities far beyond mine. It's simply entertainment! Now, a play by play opening of a box of new stuff and weighing each part with no other content is simply advertising, and is of little value, at least to me. Videos of how to do one's own maintenance has great value.

Revenue Round Up: Some Success Amidst Falling Sales
@HB208: Quit being so negative and live life that brings you happiness. If you don't want an e-bike, then don't get one, but leave those that do enjoy life to the fullest. I'm 60+ and retired, and even though I have multiple bikes ie fat bike, road, mountain, my e-bike is by far the most fun. I now can keep up with the 25 year old guys in our group (getting rad I suppose), and then some.

Opinion: What Are You Too Picky About?
Me, making sure I have IPAs to bring for the après bike festivities in the parking lot or at our on hill lounge.

Burning Question: 7 Brands That Haven't Released an eMTB Yet
@catweasel: Couldn't agree more. Almost every video posted has someone tearing down a hill full tilt with the rear tire locked up going side to side. It won't be any different on a e-bike either. I also help a lot with trail building, maintenance and grooming in the winter. When they are used, they deteriorate over time and need fixing up. How many out of all the commentators actually lift a finger helping out with trail maintenance. When I ride solo, I'm always stopping to do some trail work along the way. I'll be 65 next year, have had 3 AC separations, both Supraspinatus severed and will need a knee replacement soon, but don't let that stop me. I ride all year until the snow flies and switch to fat bikes for 4-1/2 months. All the drivel about the environment is a crock. How many of you drive large pickup trucks or SUV's to go fetch your beer at the corner store. I'll be getting an e-bike next year to continue riding, and I won't be tearing up the trails any more than I do now, except perhaps putting in more km. I couldn't care less why others might consider them. Ride, relax and have a beer when done and enjoy life.

Video: Thibaut Ruffin's 'Another Level' is a Fat Bike Edit Worth Watching
Great video. Winters are long here and fat biking has grown tremendously in the last 3-4 years. It helps that we have dedicated trails just for FBing. It's a different type of riding than mountain biking which is hard to explain to non FB riders. It sure beats staying indoors and doing nothing.

Video: Matt Stuttard's First Snowy Shred on the Prototype Privateer E-161
Cool how the ride starts in snow and ends without. I'm currently doing a lot of fat biking on snow packed trails and the weather in the video would be a late fall day for us. Almost all the video shows him shredding down hills, which has little to do with an ebike, except how it handles suspension wise. Having just turned 64 and the climbing is getting, well, long in the tooth like me, and can absolutely see an e-bike in my future. Maybe two of them, one e-mountain and one e-fat bike for winter.
