European Study on Trail Sustainability Gives New Insight on Mountain Biker Motivations, Illegal Trail Use, & More
Since you mentioned the NIMBYs getting increasingly militant: https://www.badische-zeitung.de/unbekannte-stellen-erneut-fallen-auf-freiburger-mountainbike-strecken--201971409.html Stuff like this happens in Freiburg all the time. I don't know about other places, but here the NIMBYs even attack official and legal trails. As you said, by far the largest problem is that mountainbiking has had a rather unfavourable public image. Basically the same thing that happened to the skater scene in the 90s. People finally need to accept that riding a mountainbike is as much of a legitimate hobby as hiking or playing football.

@pakleni: I don't know which country you live in, but it sure as heck isn't the Switzerland I know.

Field Test: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Alloy - The Golden Retriever of Bicycles
@WY228: I wasn't necessarily talking about their bikes. They are really good except for some apparent quality control issues and ridiculous price tags. I own an Enduro myself and it's been a great bike so far (for those times it wasn't broken anyways). I meant stuff like that helmet they brought out recently or that new line of shoes or that dumb carbon strider bike. It all got big coverage here, despite not being exciting at all and not any more relevant than competing products.

@wyorider: Yes, I did. It definitley was a clickbait-y tounge-in-cheek kinda take. But just because I'm an asshole, doesn't mean I'm wrong.

@rickybobby18: Right. The Enduro even got a raving review from me. Until I broke the frame. And the replacement frame they sent me.

@nskerb: And the Enduro. Great bike, but huge durability issues. I've broken multiple frames. Totally unacceptable for a bike that costs 6k.
