We use Slack as our workplace communication tool at Pinkbike and we have a #randoms channel that we use to share an assortment of videos and stories from all corners of the cycling world and beyond... We thought a couple of the moments from the past week were too good not to share with a wider audience, so here are some of the highlights.
With its electric Hummer EV GMC has also revealed a new eMTB after teaming up with e-bike manufacturer Recon.
The Hummer eMTB uses a 48-volt, 750-watt Bafang motor delivering power to both wheels. The all wheel drive system has three riding modes with a "cruise" mode just sending power to the rear wheel, a "traction" mode just powering the front and an "adrenaline" mode for an even split. Recon has limited the speed to 28mph.
The Hummer EV eMTB starts at $3,999 USD with a slightly more expensive $4,175 USD bike featuring a 21 amp-hour battery.
"The Most Innovative" eMTB
Italian motorcycle brand Moto Parilla has been showing off what it calls "the most innovative" eMTB at the EICMA 2022 expo in Milan.
With its complex design and integrated cooling system, the eMTB hits the scales at 46lb and uses a 250-W Polini E-P3+ MX mid-mount motor with 90 Nm of torque.
