2020 Field Test: Norco Optic - Short on Travel, Not on Capability
How would you compare it to Evil The Following MB? I've had it for almost 3 years now and was thinking of upgrading to Norco Optic. Would you say its a worthy upgrade or should I stick to FMB for another season? I really like everything about FMB, but it could be the time to move on.

Video: 4 Ways to Ride Kona's New Remote 160 in 'Chapters'
i have an ebike in addition to my regular bike. bought it to get more laps in. its great for that but nothing feels like grinding a climb on the regular bike or even descending on a short travel trail bike. regular bikes are much more nimble and responsible by a mile. ebikes i rode feel like freight trains (and the one i own, merida eonesixty), they hold the line great, gives you loads of confidence but if you are the type of rider who enjoys nimble trail bikes and like to pop and jump of stuff look elsewhere, maybe in few years when they manage to drop the weight. in addition to that i completely agree with you regarding the first 2 points. there are maybe 5% fit good riders who ride emtbs and can push them hard (and trust me, you can push emtbs really hard, feeling completely drained after 4 hours of tech riding), however, most of the emtb riders i meet on group rides are the kind of guys who have to stop for a break when climbing with the ebike or bought it to ride with their regular below average fitness group. not many really good inspiring riders unfortunately. i still ride my regular trail bike 80% of the time

Review: Northwave Clan Flat Pedal Shoes
Why isnt there a single flat pedal shoe without laces? I want boa/scotches on my flat shoes. Why is it only the clipless riders who get those cool things?

Video: The Privateer is Back - Off Season Riding with Yoann Barelli & Fitness Testing
Don't mean to be a dick, but it would also help going on a clean diet to loose some body fat.
