Thought Experiment: How Good Could e-Bikes Get?
My ebike is already so freakin amazing, honestly. 2022 RM Altitude A70 I got on 20% off sale in spring ‘23 for $7400CAD. The A30 I wanted for $5000 was out of stock. I blast up fireroads at 15-20km/h. I can do 4 laps of my local trails on a charge, which is ~1500m elevation. I usually only have time or energy to do 2 or 3 laps. On descents the bike feels fine. It doesn’t feel like my 35lb enduro but it’s just as fun. The ebike’s huge weight is most annoying getting the thing on/off my NS rack. The other complaint is I feel obligated to run cushcore, which feels vague but I don’t actually need to use inserts. Honestly, I think my ebike is pretty close to perfect today. I know they’ll get better over the years, but out of the 9 bikes that I’ve bought, it’s up there for value and by far my favourite!

@kobold: what was Greg’s face like when asked tire choice? Didn’t he design the Ass-guy tires?!

Cleaning out my garage. Fox X2 rear shock. I had only ridden this bike for 1 season. I am between sizes so took the parts and switched to another bike frame (getting a frame during covid was easier than finding a new complete bike).

Agreed!! I’ll grab my endura 4-pocket shorts out of the dirty laundry hamper before riding with any of my shorts with 2 pockets

I only used this dropper a few times. It's too long for me so I'm going to use a 180 or shorter. These OneUp dropper posts can easily shim down to 200 or 190mm and I have the little parts for that. No remote; dropper only. See Link to oneup website to double check insert length max and minimum https://can.oneupcomponents.com/products/dropper-post-v2?variant=40190534582327

First Ride: 2024 Rocky Mountain Slayer
Also surprised by grip1 for the price. I know haters going to hate, but I got last year’s altitude A70 e-bike for $7400 cad. It’s not carbon but it’s got a motor I can smash up the grunty fire road at 20km/h and do 2 or 3x the laps
