Video: The Commencal Meta Power Now Available With Bosch Motor
@tsn73: I figured that would be the case on the ebike I use as a winter bike and commuter, with a Shimano ep6 motor and ~450wh battery. But i'm 3 full years in and 5000km and it's definitely still 85-90% of the original capacity. Maybe they're not all like this, but i've been very impressed with the shimano battery.

First Look: Forge+Bond's New Thermoplastic Wheels
A lot of people are mentioning WAO vs a company like this, I'd love to see an article talking about a locally manufactured carbon wheel vs the locally manufactured thermoplastic option. All the diagrams are referring to Asian made carbon products, not local ones. WAO have also said that they do have a recycling project for their rims when people send them back for warranty. My other thought is that Guerilla Gravity is already something local with their revved carbon which they claim is 90% less sanding and finishing, and an entire frame is 3200 bucks. It'd just be great to see true apples to apples comparisons to put these companies on blast that they're actively fudging numbers to justify their exorbitant costs.

Final Results from the Downhill at Crankworx Rotorua 2023
@generalistgrant: Hot take: I love the information and intensity that Rob brings to the commentary but I feel like Elliot's goofy joking energy takes me right back out. He's often going on a longer idea, and Warner's trying to cut in with some important play by play information. He would be great at slopestyle or a rampage event where theres lots of downtime and lots of time for his exhuaberant energy. Love the guy, but not commenting on DH.

Buying a Bike From a Shop Versus Buying Online
@CrookedCrank: I mean it goes without saying that if you'd lived in a place witb great access to demo days and quality bike shop with local trails (north van, Bellingham, Bentonville, Ashville, etc) I could totally see just spending all my $$$ at the LBS One thing to note as well is if you have ever worked at an LBS, is once you see the actual prices through staff discount or even pro deal stuff, it's a tough pill to swallow and pay full dime when youre out of the system and onto a new job.

Buying a Bike From a Shop Versus Buying Online
Pre covid I was all good with the lbs, supporting when I could but now it's out of control. I asked for a couple of valve cores, they threw 5 in a bag and along with some other parts, I bought and hustled out. Got home and realized they charged me 25 dollars for 5 valve cores!!! I love em, but until they get their prices sorted, it's just too expensive to shop there.

Buying a Bike From a Shop Versus Buying Online
@derekr: Exactly this. Plus I was at my LBS a couple weeks back and saw a Large spur build that looked awesome. I asked them if they were going to have any demos in XL and they all laughed at me. So I don't see why I would go to a bike shop and buy a bike just so I could "sit" on it. It's not like I'm going to get to ride it. Might as well get a DTC bike, when the cost is much much lower. Example: Canyon Spectral 125 cf7 that I just purchased was 2999 CAD on their website. That worked out to 3700 CAD after import fees and taxes. select plus suspension, gx drivetrain, DT swiss wheels, and code rs brakes. There isn't a bike from a LBS that can remotely come close to that build and price point, even on sale.
