Bicycle addict. I like steep ups and downs. Road, CX, AM trail and anything fun on bikes. Also ride to get around town.

@lp130i: Silence, pun speedster! your attempts to bring the roadie into the axis of endurobross will be foiled! You're a gambler playing with high voltage sparks with such impure thoughts! What aspect of this audience don't you get?

@ka-brap: yep, Swiss Alpine fire road grinds are no joke. but totally worth it for the downs! Mixed feelings about the twin-lock... losing adjustments on the fork sucks but for fire road grinds and enduro stages with sprinty pedally bits, it does seem handy.

Hmm, besides the huge logo I don't mind this bike. Sure could use a refresh in the paint department though, seems a bit dated. Other than that I actually really like Scotts

First Ride: Crankbrothers Carbon Synthesis Wheels
Whoa, they made a good rim and ditched stupid spokes and stupid hubs with garbage axles that fall apart? Sounds like they un-reinvented the wheel and went back to tried and true basics, plus worked on a rim that doesn't explode... there is hope. Still ain't shelling out, but I would be happy to ride this, while I wouldn't be caught on a test ride with iodines

New Shoes From Shimano & Apparel From Dakine - Interbike 2018
@nickkk: you can DEFINITELY have very waterproof and breathable at the same time. I've used great stuff from Endura, Bontrager, Showers Pass, and more. The catch is, it will be neither cheap ($150-$400) nor durable (1-2 seasons of pacific northwest) so yeah, unless you ride hard in the rain in a chilly place all the freaking time, layering/merino and sucking it up is probably the way to go.

Video: Specialized's New Turbo Levo Ad is 'Mind Blowing'
@shinook: nah, the US has a weird thing. I'm sure there are purists everywhere, but the combination of trail access issues, holier-than-thou attitudes and NIMBYism are on another level of stupid in the good ole US of A.

@2bigwheels: 1) did you smoke crack? or just go too hard on your adderal scrip? or miss your antipsychotics? ad-hominem attack begets the same, you're welcome...now that we got that out of the way... 2) both bikes are for riding mountains, but one is for people who want a pure bike ride (with fancy suspension tech but no moto) ... and the other is for people who want a little motorized help on the uphills with a weight penalty Kinda like a phone and a computer can both be used for email, web browsing, telephony, videocalls...or motor vehicles being useful for transporting people, but some people want cargo capacity and some people want fuel efficiency and passenger space... "Both mutually being sold as the best options in their intended fields of use." ie MTB vs. E-MTB Sure, bike and e-mtb are a bit closer, but the majority of the time the categories will have different customers. Just in case you're *that* worried, if I click "mountain bikes" on Spesh's website, I get the options of XC, Trail, Gravity, or Electric....seeeee, not the same category! (hope this helps in case you haven't already been hospitalized for high blood pressure.) Have a lovely day, get off your high horse (don't share your stash with your horse!) and go ride your bike.

no, they're saying they sell bikes to anyone who wants to give them money, and they have options with and without motors. did you know spesh also make road bikes, comfort bikes, kids bikes and more; and they don't necessarily expect the same customer to buy from all their categories? did you know toyota makes both small hybrids and huge trucks, apple makes both phones and laptops...and advertise both as the best thing ever...in their own category? whoa, what a concept.
