Review: The Airdrop Edit MX - No Frills, All Thrills
You just described in exact detail my Guerrilla Gravity ownership experience. They were out of business within 6 mos. of my visit to their HQ. :(

Esker Releases Smokey Steel Hardtail Designed for a 160mm Fork
@brapntap: I did not see that! That pretty much undermines my entire premise, so I guess I take it all back.

Esker Releases Smokey Steel Hardtail Designed for a 160mm Fork
Hard tails don't need seat angles this steep! They get way to steep once you've sagged out a 160mm fork and riding while seated means you get pile-driven by the smallest bumps. Steep seat angles are great for long climbs, but that's not really where a bike like this works best.

Brian's Randoms from Eurobike 2024
I had a specialized post about 10 years ago with a similar design. It was definitely easier to mount a saddle* but it was really hard to get tight enough to not slip. *My least favorite thing to do is mount inserts. Or maybe chasing creaks. Or getting my brakes not to rub. . .I love to hate working on my bike.

Drone Manufacturer DJI Debuts Light & Powerful eMTB Motor - Eurobike 2024
I'll consider an e-bike when it 1) integrates the motor and transmission into one unit 2) is quiet with smooth, easily modulated power delivery 3) uses a belt drive 4) weighs 20 kilos or less. I'm guessing all this will happen around when I'm retirement age so perfect!

First Ride: The 2025 Specialized Stumpjumper Has a New Dual Chamber Air Shock
Nothing against electronic drivetrains, I just don't like them. One of my favorite things about bikes is their mechanicalness. It appears to me that the main reason Transmission works well (reportedly) isn't necessarily because of the electrics but rather because the mounting interface is so much stronger/stiffer. I don't know why SRAM wouldn't want to use that mounting tech on a mechanical drivetrain. I'd pay for that, even a premium. Not haing a mechanical option is by far the biggest drawback on this bike, and I'm in the market for something like this right now (and I've owned multiple stumpjumpers over the years.)
