Review: BMC Trailfox AMP Two
Good to see Pinkbike post a review of an ebike, seen a few posts on the instagram feed but nothing on the actual page. I just assumed they were too scared to present this kind of content to the narrow minded yet vocal nay sayers who clog up the comments section all too frequently. I can't blame them I suppose, all the other North American sites are pretending that ebikes aren't in the marketplace or as popular as they are, perhaps they justify to themselves that it's just a UK/European thing? Or is it that the USA audience in particular blames the potential popularity of ebikes will endanger their access rights to trails even further, all that view does is reinforce a negative view in people who already view our sport in a negative way, we all know MTBing doesn't damage the landscape but convincing others in the US seems all but impossible, so words like 'motor' can be emotive and in the case of 'pedal assist' misleading, these bikes used in the right way with the right legislation and software from the manufacturers can be restricted to 16-20mph, after that they're the same as any other bike, similar tyre compound, just heavier. Before we go down the route of greater damage caused by ebikes, how many regular riders, dig up landscape for their own ends, drag rear wheels through loamy corners etc? For the record I have an ebike, a levo, but I so have an enduro, a 29er, I consider myself very lucky, so I'm the worst kind of guy in some peoples eyes, all ebikes do for me, is get me out on the trails more often and for longer, I don't prefer one bike over the other. On the BMC itself...too expensive.

EWS France Course Preview - Video
That was a testament to Chris and Rics riding skills when they can commentate a course preview whilst giving the impression they're just two mates out having a laugh.

Fashion vs. Fit: Is Longer Always Better? - Opinion
Great article, this argument was needed to counter the Geometron conquers all put forward a couple of years ago, that has been copied by every brand since. I.e. Lets keep getting longer, stability is all. The problem for me is bike manufacturers focus on on the longer,lower,slacker aspects, then assemble a bike with other variables such as bar with, tyre choice, crank arm length and acknowledge that customers will swap these out for their own prefered choices. At 6ft, with a in seam of 32" I guess I should be on a large or Xl but with the supplied stem of 40mm or 50mm I often over reaching so a whole bike package might not be the best option. Which is why I buy a frame and build up. The main point of the article is spot on the longer, lower, slacker argument has become overblown and distracting.
