@Mondbiker: All cool, 'disagree' was probably a poor choice of word on my part. But yeah, I was aware he didn't make the term up and didn't need that explained (though still wouldn't say it's super popular either). I don't know why it irritates me tbh. I don't mind downcountry and other newspeak like that at all but when I see 'acoustic bikes' I lose my shit for some reason ;)

@friendlyfoe: No, it's the opposite thing. I very specifically suggested he knows what it means, you just quoted it. What I don't know is why I'm even getting dragged into a pointless argument about this.

@friendlyfoe: another projection, I never said he had no idea what the word meant. Why would I 'need a new website'? Because someone on this one said something I didn't like? Now that would be weird if you ask me but hey, I won't judge if that's how you roll. Besides, where would I go, Bikeradar? I'd rather call bikes 'acoustic'.

@Mondbiker: I love how you assume that if someone disagrees with you it must be because of ignorance and not because they, well, disagree. Nice one pal. I'm perfectly aware of some people using that dumb term, though luckily that use is nowhere near being 'widely accepted' at least from what I've seen (YMMV). Even here it's quite rare and coming from a minority of commenters rather than editors (and invariably called out as asinine). Where exactly is it more common, the German "Bike Magazin"? That would be fitting. I think I recall someone pushing it hard under an article on NSMB and it wasn't very well received. And where, oh where did I ever suggest caldog made the term up? You're the only one making things that I didn't say up, buddy. Question though. Even if the term one day becomes adopted like downcountry, will it make it any less stupid? Or any less of a silly make-believe that ebikes are the norm and bikes are the oddity (which might as well be the case in some years but that's off topic)? Hugs, "the banana guy"

@caldog: I don't think you'll get any downvotes for suggesting an ebike as there's nothing wrong with that (except it's completely off-topic and not what the OP is asking about). You'll get them for using the absolutely idiotic term 'acoustic bike' for what is actually called a 'bike'. Stop trying to pretend you need any qualifier for people to know what a bicycle is, as if that was something new and needed a fresh definition. Ebikes are the relatively new thing that needs the 'e', 'electric', 'pedal-assist' etc. qualifiers to define them. If it does make you feel better though, at least use something accurate like 'non-electric'... I mean, I hope you do realise what the word 'acoustic' means and how it is not applicable to bikes in any way, shape or form?

Video: Conflict Arises Between 17 Year Old UK Rider & Apparent "Trail Saboteurs"
Are you trolling? It's not those women's land. If he's trespassing, so are they. The thing is though, he's not. The land manager confirmed to the media (BBC, not shitty DM cited here) that bikers have permission to ride and dig there and he's actually looking to make it fully sanctioned/legal.

@jrocksdh: I guarantee you 100% they are not lefties. I think the attitudes on both sides of the spectrum vary between the US and UK (or even Europe more generally). In the UK I will bet my left nut those two are Tory voters.

Video: Radon Launches Updated Swoop Enduro Bike
"Where else can you buy a carbon beast like this starting at €2999" Umm... CRC? Here's a search for carbon FS bikes under £2700 (roughly 2999 EUR): https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/mountain-bikes/full-suspension?f=2637&sort=pricelow&pf=&pt=2700 Also: https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/mountain-bikes/trail-bikes/spectral/spectral-cf-7.0/2231.html The Capra too, but that doesn't take a bottle either ;) Could probably find some more examples if I tried. Not saying the Radon is bad, but hardly the only choice so it's not like you are forced into a compromise these days. There is a selection of well-priced bikes with well-working suspension that also happen to have that damn bottle space so if it matters to someone why would they not be picky? I get it you like your backpack but a) what's the benefit of being forced to wear one on every single ride as opposed to having options and b) not everyone likes what you like. As for upspeccing rear mechs and downspeccing shifters, come on, seriously... I'm sure deep down you know it's a dumb practice straight out of the 90s that should have died long ago (luckily it mostly has) and is squarely aimed at tempting noobs with visible bling to the detriment of the actual experience on the trail. It should 100% be the other way around or just spec full NX and make the bike cheaper (or give it better hubs or brakes or something, idk, anything but a useless rear mech 'upgrade'). If consumers weren't picky, what would be the incentive for manufacturers to improve anything ever?
