Pinkbike Poll: What Type of Bike Would You Add to Your Quiver?
Same as the Lemon Peeler https://www.ebay.com/itm/Schwinn-Krate-Lemon-Peeler/123946961533?hash=item1cdbd08a7d:g:pOYAAOSw1UpdnpnQ

First Ride: Merida eOne-Forty
Also, Northstar even put in a dedicated ebike trail this year. They also must be seeing the potential market share. Not like Northstar is going around adding more downhill trails. I even think Mammoth Mt allows ebikes, again market share/money.

First Ride: Merida eOne-Forty
It does seem a bit ironic is the world of carbon fiber frames/bikes and the ever present concern about bike weights that ebikes do seem to be getting so much marketing push. I suspect the bike industry sees ebikes as a significant potential market segment and likely they have significant profit margins on the ebikes. Of course riding a motorized bike zipping up a single track is fun. It would be fun even if it were a gas powered engine, just not as "cool". I do see the problem with multi-use trail systems. Hikers already hate mountain bikers, but in the past at least there was only 1 direction a biker would be going fast on a single track trail. I do know someone who is having health issues at a relatively young age that may limit his ability to continue to ride a standard mountain bike. Quite a shame as it's something he highly enjoys and also does with his teenager. I told him to get an ebike, life is too short. And he should just wear a jersey that says, "Don't Give Me Shit, I Have A Health Problem!"

Video: 7 Year Old Tya Sends Jumps & Drops in her Local Woods
Was quite weird reading through the critical comments. Jackson Goldstone obviously didn't post his 1st video, which I understand is the most viewed on the Pink Bike server. Nice edit, she's good, especially for a 7 yr old girl (and I don't mean that in a negative way). All parents should be getting out to ride with their kids. Take video's as they grow up fast.

Viathon Bikes Drop Prices & Become Available Through Walmart
@Hogfly: Here's a link: https://www.singletracks.com/blog/mtb-gear/first-ride-review-deciphering-the-viathon-m1-hardtail-mtb/ Basically, they are saying that that the relatively steep head tube on this hardtail bike is basically best suited for someone who is using it for cross country racing and that due to head angle it wouldn't be a great more versatile trail riding bike. So I would agree that for daily riding for most riders this bike wouldn't be "fun." Other hardtail bikes have gone to slacker head angles. Carbon frame, low weight and much better price point concerning parts than other bikes mentioned in the article. This seems like a great bike for a NICA racer who doesn't want to break the bank for a similar bike for those races. I would consider it for exactly NICA races for my kid at the $2000 price point. But then again, just for NICA race/training as he has a good trail bike and a downhill bike.

Dorel Industries Suspends Dividend, Stock Value Plummets to Record Low, Tariffs Blamed
@jmhills: Putting politics aside, from the link with the article above, concerning Giant bicycles: The 25% tariffs have apparently added $100 on average to the price of bicycles made in China and shipped to the US. So it does make one wonder, given the price of a mid-level ($3,000) mtb bike (or higher level), how much does this effect the price of these bikes? It does seem a company could very well manage that average $100 for a bike. Understandably, it could be more on higher end bikes.

Dorel Industries Suspends Dividend, Stock Value Plummets to Record Low, Tariffs Blamed
From the article, I now know Dorel Industries makes the following bikes: Cannondale, GT, Mongoose, Iron Horse, and Schwinn So I wonder, how much difference is there in similar level frames concerning quality? I would suspect that all these bikes are made in the same factory?

Pinkbike Poll: Adjustable Geometry - Necessity or Nuisance?
From the article: "Self doubt sells. "Should I stick with what I know best, or should I buy into an emerging trend?" It's human nature to straddle the fence. That's why sliver SUVs are so popular." I couldn't finish the article cause I don't understand this statement about silver SUV's ....
