Ridden & Rated: 4 of the Best eMTB Motor Systems for 2020 - Bosch vs Brose vs Shimano vs Fazua
@Lasse2000: Mondraker is VPP. Big pedal kickback. Trek's pedal kickback is most definitely smaller.

I'm 37. Good shape. Technically I have never been better. Riding MTBs since I was 10. I own more 2 MTBs and many other bikes. This year I bought eMTB. I couldn't (or could for those in US) care less about what people think when it comes to eBikes. I know that I'm not either a threat to them nor to environment. No more than the same me on my enduro bike. And the fun factor is just bloody amazing. And the fact that I can go and climb my favorite mountains after work (uphill takes minutes not hours :D) and then do DH which gives me the smiles is awesome. Go ride and have fun

Video: Friday Fails #119
@WAKIdesigns: I think that you forgot about one important factor. There are accidents where most of the impact is going through the face. As gross as it sounds, that happens. And you may sustain TBI this way. Wearing a FF would greatly increase chances of having smaller TBI or even no at all.

@jeremiahwas: I read the full story. Very strange. In most cases the severity of TBI is correlated with the time patient was unconscious. Here he was conscious all the time. Also he didn't have brain trauma in a window of couple of weeks before the last accident. All this means that he's brain was probably already badly injured much earlier. What the whole story lacks is a warning that people should never go back biking faster than 2 months after TBI. Second TBI in the window right after the first one can put you on a wheelchair or worse. Brain has to heal.

Could you give any specific examples of that well designed leverage ratio?

The 2020 Last Tarvo Claims to be the Lightest Enduro Frame Ever
@stumphumper92: I honestly don't know why more people down voted my post than up voted it. It's not like I can't fly a light bike. But the observation is hardly a placebo. I put DH tires and build heavier wheels. Overall it added around half a kilo weight. And theoretically in the place people always say it's bad because of energy loss. But it is how it is. It became more stable and I don't have to put as much effort into the takeoff to keep it flying like I want. Doing tabletops and bunny hops didn't change a bit.

I think you are mistaken in all your assumptions. Flex in vertical axis doesn't necessarily translate to flex in all other dimensions. Especially in carbon construction where you have control over every parameter. When it comes to adjustable range. It's just like with shitty and good bushings. With big friction you'll need less LSC and less LSR. The same here. I think modern shocks will allow more than enough range.

I recently upgraded my bike. Went from 13,9kg to 14,4. It rides noticably better. Not because of upgrades. It's just more stable in the air because it's heavier. Sub 13kg will be sketchy AF. I may be biased. My weight with gear is 88kg.
