Burning Question: 7 Brands That Haven't Released an eMTB Yet
@cotic-bikes: Well there's a simple solution in not using strava when riding these things. You are asking a lot from strava to moderate your own or individual's activities. I don't see how it is in their interest or even practical when you consider the global scale. Also couldn't someone lobby to remove stuff that they don't like but is legit? How does strava square that circle?

@lukeb: "There's definitely a place for e bikes where they replace cars, but not eMTBs." Absolutely.

@BikesNRussets: you could always veneer it with cocobolo.

This is the same headtube/area stack lamination as used by Twmpa and it is suboptimal. Laminate veneers long grain in a U shape, use the advantage of ash fibre length and strength. Not much if any extra work to do this. I'd be worried about grain splitting/riving failure as it is, especially with long forks.

It is. Either there is a joke I'm missing, or you're used to seeing American ash species, which are very similar anyway.

Throwback Thursday: Rachel Atherton's 2016 World Championships Diary
@cvoc: yes you are right in that you can only compare across the categories eg. Female racer X wins with the slowest possible time and plays it safe by riding within their capabilities. Impossible to know how far they could step up if the competitive field was faster overall. They don't need to go faster. With that in mind I think it's a hard argument to make that Minnaar is the GOAT. 22 cup wins vs RA's 37. And Vouilloz retired at the age of 26! I think ACC is the GOAT when you look at the number of overall cups, championship wins across the disciplines. No one gets close on that level of dominance. Would be interesting to how her times compared to the mens at the time but not sure if this is available?

Actually unless you just go on individual cup wins NV is a way ahead of RA.

@VWsurfbum: pretty amazing, thanks for the list. By comparison this is Anne Caroline Chausson BMX Olympic Champion: 2008 3 x Junior downhill World Champion: 1993, 1994, 1995 9 x Senior downhill World Champion: 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005 2 x Senior dual slalom World Champion: 2000, 2001 2 x Senior four-cross World Champion: 2002, 2003 5 x World Cup downhill series winner: 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 World Cup dual slalom series winner: 2000 World Cup four-cross series winner: 2002 Being really nerdy, in 1995 World champs, ACC's time was faster than Senior winner Leigh Donovan's. UCI wouldn't let ACC ride in senior's. Only Nicolas Vouilloz gets close to these two. 5 x World Cup Downhill Champion : 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000 7 x Downhill World Champion : 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2002 3 x Downhill Junior World Champion : 1992, 1993, 1994 I don't get why people refer to Minnaar as the GOAT, statistically he's not even close unless you go solely on individual cup wins. He's a great no question.
