Race Face Next R Cranks - Review
@zede: bahaha I'm assuming you meant 6m jumps. I'm sure as Hell not hitting anything fest size, that is until I fall asleep.

Race Face Next R Cranks - Review
@yeti-monster: I've had my Next sl for three seasons two of those racing the ESC enduro series and multiple days at the bike parks with no issues. Best cranks I've used. Sorry you guys have had issues.

Team CRC Mavic Leave Downhill Racing to Focus on Enduro
I come from many years in the whitewater kayaking world and it's the same way there. Everyone gets excited over the videos of the guys surfing the biggest waves, running the biggest waterfalls, and paddling the hardest scariest looking rapids that can be found. The reality is that none of these companies could survive if they only made whitewater kayaks. Even the sales from the whitewater kayaks designed solely for easy whitewater that most kayakers partake in couldn't do it. They need the basic flatwater recreational kayak and fishing kayak sales to make the whitewater kayak market even possible. There may be more mountainbikers than whitewater kayakers but many more bike companies in the mix making those "recreational" bike type sales even more important for the long term prosperity of the bike industry.

@Racer951: "Fun most definately, I just dont want to see some slippery slope where half of the people on the trails are using a battery to help them around." But why care how anyone else is having fun if it's not causing any extra damage to the trails and riders are full respectful?

@SeaJay: typical scared American; afraid of something new and waiting for any option to make a small fortune off a pathetic lawsuit. Is coal going too make a comeback too?

@bikeis4life: you know what, a few decades back the hikers and horse back riders were saying the same things about their trails, scared of the outcome that allowing those crazies to ride there bikes on them would bring; trail erosion, too many people using the trail networks, would access be lost.

@Gregorysmithj1: I hear you there. I started doing our local enduro series the last couple years after following the Enduro World Series and was disappointed that almost all the transfers are lift rides.

@Gregorysmithj1: not really intended toward you just throwing it to troll the ebike haters who say the sport is all about the pedaling. That race was once of the greatest feats in what a good bike, the law of gravity, and a phenomenal rider can achieve.

@OzMike: I agree. My only interaction with ebikes had been when our local enduro series started using them for the organizers to ride their heavy loads to and from the different stages with greater ease. From everything I've read it sounds like it's just new and different so folks are scared. I understand the access issue but with proper handling of the situation and greater stewardships from the emerging ebike community I would think things could flawlessly merge. But hey I know it's different. I still dislike all snowboarders I don't know, but the ones I do know, really rip it up.
