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

I think you mean wealth is concentrated in an aging demographic that wants to relive their youth

First Look: 2022 Orbea Rise Hydro - More Range at a Lower Cost
@withdignityifnotalacrity: key point being "riding hard in rocky terrain" and in many (most?) markets, most riders don't. Also recommend inserts over heavy casings unless you're cutting your sidewalls on pointy rocks

@SprSonik: lol this so much - the majority of riders (who actually go buy new bikes in shops, not pinkbike brodawgs) would poop their pants on any trail where you could actually feel the stiffness difference between 34 and 36 (unless they're clydesdales) On that note, the whole DD/DH tires circlejerk is nuts, yes some riders and locations need them but for most it's a strong disadvantage.

Um no - with strong legs this bike feels like a 25lb XC rocket on eco, even though it's a 45lb trailbike. As someone who primarily rides a singlespeed hardtail, this bike is AWESOME and the only eMTB i've ridden that I would really consider buying. (rode an M10 multiple times)

@Mntneer: arguably higher in some sports/areas - HS and college athletes get virtually no testing and are all hungry for fame/scholarships etc

Opinion: How Many Batteries Does a Mountain Bike Really Need?
"....where the bike fades into the background" So...singlespeed hardtails only. I can get with that.

Porsche Acquires Majority Stake in Greyp eBikes
@SleepingAwake: I was saying the resin used in most CFRP today leads to offgassing and heavy metal contamination. Basically, removing the carbon fibers is an amazing step in reducing carbon footprint, but let's not pretend there aren't other significant pollution issues with composites. (I bring this up because the "global warming/c02 conversation has an unfortunate tendency to ignore other pollution/habitat impacts of the industrial anthropocene) I am 100% for flax (or hemp) fiber with low-impact resins and am thrilled there are significant efforts to improve such technology.
