Counterpoint: Do We Really Need E-Bikes?
Every person I've actually seen on the trail with an e-bike has been older (not that I'm super young at 40). The other day I saw an older guy, probably in his late 50s, a bit over-weight out riding with his son. Dad was on an e-bike, son was a ripper grom on an AM bike. Without that e-bike that experience probably wouldn't have happened for them. Access is going to be problem, but I don't think my ideas of what is/isn't mountain biking should have any bearing on what anyone else can/can't do.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Casings, BB Compatibility, and Body Position
Paul Howard of Zep Techniques showed me this: If your quads are burning you're knees are bent too much. Try this - off the bike, squat with a deep bend in the knees and see how long you can hold it. Now stand up and squat down to a point just before your knees start to give way (should only be a slight bend to the knees) and hold it; you can hold it MUCH longer. Keep this position on the bike as much as possible (you'll need a deeper hip bend). Your quads will go way longer without burning and you'll have more pop when pumping as well.

Devinci Troy Carbon RR - Review
@viatch: According to Devinci there should be 3 spacers in the rear, but there are several posts I've seen where owners are finding their shocks were shipped with none. I'm running 35% sag and never getting a harsh bottom, even on sizeable drops to flat.
