Online Deals May 2017
@funnyjr: Nothing wrong with them, except for their shady business practice of using their "Co-op" status to dodge taxes paid by their competitors, and cut-throat back-stab business tactics. Case in point, they brokered a backdoor deal with Intense to have exclusive rights in Canada. This stuck the former distributor (OGC) with a butt-load of Intense stock that they had to sell off, with their retailers wanting no part of a line that would not be carried in the future. As a result, OGC had to find a way to blow out a lot of Intense product, flooding the market with their bikes on the cheap. This means MEC won't sell as many this year due to the competition, and will likely have to discount their stock next year to make room for the new. In turn, all high-end bike retailers will face this unforeseen competition against similar products (all brands, Kona, Giant etc etc). This is temporarily good for consumers that want a bike right now. It sucks for the retail sector that we access to get our products. Hey, we all want it cheaper, but most of us want the bike-dedicated industry to succeed, and not get entirely swallowed up by the Walmart of outdoor gear. Given the choice, I would prefer to shop elsewhere.If I need a purple fleece vest or a 3-person tent, I'll check MEC. If I want bike stuff, I'll check elsewhere first.

@d-man: You ramble like a lobotomy patient. "Downhill singletrack" is the downhill segment of any trail. Not a DH track. The majority of trails have a distinct up and down segment, and only a moron like yourself would spin up the down section and expect people to get out of your way.

@d-man: And rectal-cranial inverted twats like yourself think it is okay to compromise the entire trail network by encouraging two-way traffic? I didn't say up a DH track. Even locally, there are already clear signs of E-bikes going up the blue-run singletracks that trail riders and xc rider (i.e. the majority of riders) come down. So learn to read, stop exaggerating, and pull your head out of your ass.

Point: E-Bikes Are Good for the Sport
If you're going to use this platform to push your garbage, you should cite your sources. I'm tired of these unverified sources telling us about ebikes this and that in Europe. STFU with this marketing propaganda. If you want to spout your koolaid, name your sources or STFU.

With a motor, E-bikes riders will be able to go ripping UP the downhill singletracks, and rut the crap out of it. This can also lead to uphill-downhill conflicts, and the ebikers will in all likelihood cry that uphill "riders" have the right of way.
