First Ride: 2022 Specialized Kenevo SL - The Electric Enduro
I was thinking the same thing. If any bike is going to get me to buy an e-bike, this would be it. But that price point is going to keep me out for now. Not complaining about it, just stating my reality. But man, what a nice bike!

Field Trip: Ibis's $2,999 Ripley AF is a Precision Weapon
@kcy4130: There were lots of good things I could say about the bike — the climbing, the precise steering, the snappy, poppy feel, the quality manufacturing. It really liked to be pushed. It was objectively a great bike, and I could see why people would love it. But as much as I fiddled with the suspension, the best I could get it was “good enough, I guess.” Just not the bike for me. That said, I really liked the way the Pivot Firebird 29 felt. Beast of a bike, but that’s what I expected with the Turner but didn’t get. The Pivot Switchblade, though, didn’t like quite as much. So with the Pivot, my preference would be to go big.

@kcy4130: I had a Turner, which is also a DW link, and that was my feeling, too. Climbing was wonderful, descending inconsistent. Sometimes you would just hit that magical spot and it would feel plush and bottomless. Other times it would just feel harsh. That’s exactly all I could say about it in the end — I just couldn’t get along with it. I agree with whomever else said if you go Pivot, just get the monster truck.

Really? Cause I think the Alu bikes look a far sight better than their carbon counterparts.

5 Key Stats from Downhill Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
Do you think it’s even 20 men who have a shot each race? I’d say less than half of that. Maybe 8-10.

5 Key Stats from Downhill Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
@BetterRide: You’re right. I can’t say I’ve ever been influenced to buy a bike by who’s riding what. Hell, my last bike was a Turner. When was the last time they sponsored a big name? I love the sport and spend a lot of time on my bike, but up until a few years back, I couldn’t name a single racer. I started paying attention about the time Gwin won his chainless run. I guess I noticed YT a little more when he rode for them. Never bought a YT, though. And now I have no interest. Rachel Atherton made me think about Trek a little bit, but never enough to buy one. But then maybe for every few guys like me, there’s a rider who makes that conversion. Four of us take notice but one guy buys. Maybe that’s how it works. But I think it’s kind of a minor factor compared to the real deciding factors, like how a bike rides, what it costs, reputation, etc.

6 Things That Didn't Happen in the Bike Industry This Month
No joke — I received an email this morning from Competitive Cyclist. Subject line: Sock Doping is Back. In the email: “And since there’s no denying the competitive edge of a dialed sock game...” Immediately thought of this article. There’s a fine line between reality and satire.
