First Ride: 2022 Specialized Kenevo SL - The Electric Enduro
@kcy4130, true, but you can't exactly pedal a moto if you run out of gas. And then there's the noise, transportation to the trailhead, etc... All of these things are just options for goofing off outside. It doesn't really bother me what people choose to do.

@JDFF, ebikes can make moto trails really fun to ride, trails that would be pretty miserable on a regular bike due to the ruts / steepness.

@JDFF, easy on the snark. The walk mode is handy when you dismount on a super steep section of trail and need to push to a flatter portion to get back on. It's a situation that's more common on an eMTB because the motor allows you to attempt climbs you wouldn't ever try on a regular bike.

@Maestroman87, remember, the motor is smaller too, so the battery lasts longer than it would on a full-powered e-mtb - definitely much longer than an hour.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Width, Cleaning Tips, Shock Setup, & Buying a Bike Without Trying It First
@iantmcg, don't forget to look at the reach numbers. That 2014 Bronson had a 429mm reach for a size large - that's the same as most companies' size small these days. Bikes have gotten a fair bit longer and slacker over the last 7 years, and the handling has improved because of it.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Width, Cleaning Tips, Shock Setup, & Buying a Bike Without Trying It First
From Simple Green's FAQ page: "When used with caution and according to the instructions, Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner has been safely and successfully used to clean aluminum. Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner, Crystal Simple Green Industrial Cleaner & Degreaser, and Simple Green Pressure Washer Concentrates have been used on aircraft, automotive, industrial and consumer aluminum items for over 20 years. However, caution and common sense must be used: aluminum is a soft metal that easily corrodes with unprotected exposure to water. The aqueous-base and alkalinity of Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner can accelerate the corrosion process. Therefore, contact times for unprotected or unpainted aluminum surfaces should be kept as brief as the job will allow - never for more than 10 minutes." Like I mentioned in my answer, it's not a good idea to soak items in a concentrated solution, but for spraying it on and then rinsing off it'll be fine.

I wouldn't worry too much about a bike's sodium levels - if the dish soap is diluted and rinsed off afterwards it shouldn't cause any issues.
