First Look: Santa Cruz's First eMTB, the 2020 Heckler
We got 12 gears, advanced suspension, light frames/components, decades of obsessive R&D . Bikes are now quite remarkable. Add a motor, it doesn’t seem like a bicycle anymore. It’s a different deal. It’s a motor bike. Which is fine. It’s just kind of a strange progression. I don’t think I’ll ever reach for a motor. In fact, as I age, earning the up is a sweet euphoria, and keeps me centered and ground and lean.

Yeah, that comment about how awesome the talus felt had me laughter out loud. I put a talus on my 08 heckler because I thought fox was supposed to be the shit. That fork sucked so bad. Slightly better than the stock rs recon, but not really.

Hustle Bike Labs Takes a Stab at Magnetic Pedals With the REM
although I am totally done riding hardtail on rough terrain (50 years old), I do remember back in my hardtail days that I really appreciated being clipped in and not bouncing off my pedals when charging choppy conditions. And I guess enduro racers think clipping in gives them an edge. I'll never clip again. After a decade of use, I now climb tech better on flat pedals, and trail riding crashes are just less crazy when your feet are free. I don't need to be pulling the bike over my head when endoing.

Somethings fishy with this. Pinkbike should not get their test bikes directly from the company. They should just go to a dealer, and anonymously buy or order a bike for their test. It would have saved the Pole fiasco.

U.S. Forest Service Sued Over Decision to Allow eMTBs in Tahoe National Forest
Instinctively I like the purity of drawing the line at muscle power for access. But equestrians kind of muddy the water. They have somehow achieved an ill deserved special status with the forest circus. That said, there is a great equestrian/mountain bike partnership every year in the Henry's Fork Mountains here in Montana. The horses carry all the chainsaws to the ridgetops and the bikers then put the saws on mountain racks and clear trail. Everyone gets along on the same trails. SO...while I think horse access receives more than its share of favoritism and legacy bias, and their impact is incredibly harmful to trails, not all horse people are dicks.
