2021 Pinkbike Awards: Product of the Year Nominees
I have codes paired with 220 MDR-P rotors and mtx gold pads. Super quiet, consistent and MAX POWER! Totally agree with you, SRAM brakes aren't terrible but they could be better. And just like with the reverb sag issue their unwillingness to address known faults is frustrating.

New 'Super Wheel' Prototypes Still Claim to Offer Power Assistance Without a Motor... And We're Still Skeptical
Energy in = energy out negating friction in a closed system. Holy crap I thought we as a world had moved beyond snake oils but apparently there's still a market.

Introducing SCOR, A New Swiss Bike Brand
@Rokcore: Very fair point. That's part of the reason I would prefer ebikes and mtbs be separate. Nothing intrinsically wrong with ebikes but problems arise when the two are conflated.

@Spencermon: They can choose to take the training wheels off and join the party. Exceptions to the disabled of course, elite stems from achievement.

Introducing SCOR, A New Swiss Bike Brand
With an ebike I could get more uphill speed, more distance, more laps. But for me and most people I know mountain biking isn't about more at any cost, it's about the rider and machine coming together as one to accomplish incredible things. Mechanical everything is a big part of that relationship. You can feel the grip of the trail through your feet, you can carefully control your shifting and timing to achieve perfect shifts, you modulate your brakes to stay right on the edge of traction. And when it all comes together the feeling is indescribable. However, this takes work. I must train my body and make decisions that protect and enhance my health. I must practice riding frequently to learn the character of the bike. I must learn how the bike mechanically functions so I can tune, repair and maintain it. I must overcome discomfort and pain on the climbs. All of these things come together and we have earned the right to call ourselves mountain bikers. Now comes another group. They see these elite people doing really cool things and sharing a bond formed in hard work and dedication. They want a piece of this pie (and corporations want their money) but they are unwilling to work to achieve this. Along comes the ebike. Now you can play mountain biker without working for it or achieving even a fundamental understanding of what made the sport so great. Yes, I know this is an elitist argument. But you know what? Elite is defined as "a select group that is superior in terms of ability or qualities to the rest of a group." And is it wrong to strive to be better than those around you?
