Living With an eMTB, After the Honeymoon - Opinion
So they cost a heap more and are trickier to set up and also more expensive to maintain. My cell phone battery starts getting weak after 2 years. I wonder how long those 700 E battery packs will last with the kind of current they are expected to push? I foresee numerous eBikes sitting in peoples garages with dud batteries that are so expensive to replace, people have rather spent the money on a hardtail and rediscovered real mountain biking. Watch this space. :-)

Why Pinkbike is Covering eMTBs This Week
Show us the money... How can PB afford not to cover E Bikes with every single bike manufacturer in on the E game? I've tried one and getting a hand up the hill was nice. It just doesn't feel like a proper bike - i.e. human powered transport. I've also owned road and off road motorcycles and while it doesn't feel anything like that there are similarities. Tales of hop ups abound too. I'd love one, but its not the same sport as MTB. Then there's the price. All they will do is get more rich people into the sport - they are unaffordable for most. Its strange that they are so popular in the EU, home of lift accessible trails all over the place. Why do you need an EMTB when you can access the slopes in a chair? There is also the social media aspect. I'm not a climber, but there are plenty who are and if I was on an EMTB I'd claim some KOM'S. Its also going to make descending an undulating trail potentially faster too. We can't stop the march of progress and the tech is fascinating, but to me its a different category of activity to MTB.

Focus JamĀ² - eMTB Review
Is this a first? The first eMTB reviewed on PB? I was wondering when the zombie sickness would spread here...

Red Bull Joyride: Full Video Highlights - Crankworx Whistler 2017
Anyone else find the TV coverage not as good as at the other events, Rotorua for instance? Those drone shots were too far away and the riders were hard to spot against the background beige.

What's Up at 9point8 - Crankworx Whistler 2017

Morgane Charre Not Selected to Race 2017 World Champs
These federations are poorly run and probably corrupt. Lets hope the FCF feel the heat and admit that they made an error.
