YT Releases New Decoy 29
@tacklingdummy: your totally missing the point here. Imagine you weighed 200lbs and bought a used regular non e-bike with 36mm forks. If the guy you bought the bike from weighed 180lbs would you be worried the forks would be too flexy?

To be fair when an average bike and rider can weigh between 200 and 270lbs in total, is an extra 20lbs of motor and battery really going to have that big of an effect on stiffness? Yes ebikes are heavy compared to regular bikes but once a rider is sat on it, the increased weight is at most 10%.

Review: Hope's UK-Made HB.130 Trail Bike
Am I the only one disappointed by that half arsed head badge? Surely Hope of all people could come up with some gorgeous CNC masterpiece to stick on there!

Video: Techy Freecoaster Lines in the Park and on the Streets
Its basically a clutch between the driver and the hub body. One clutch plate is fixed to the hub body and the other is screwed onto a coarse thread mounted to the driver. When the wheel turns backwards but the pedals don't move, the plates move apart as the inner friction surface is driven outwards along the coarse thread until the clutch disengages and that allows the wheel to spin independent to the driver. Pedalling forward will force the plate back along the thread until it engages the outer friction surface at which point the wheel can be driven by the pedals again.

10 of the Best Handlebar Mounted Bike Lights Ridden & Rated
In the UK a night ride usually means its winter so wet and muddy. By the time I get home I'm cold, wet and hungry so it's nice to be able to remove my light in seconds and leave the bracket on the bike before hosing the bike down and heading inside to warm up. Also trailside repairs etc are easier when you can turn your light into a torch.

Review: 6 Months with SRAM'S Wireless Eagle AXS XX1 Drivetrain
@mitochris: Custom chopper motorcycles have used combined rear sprocket/brake rotors for years. Always sounded like a recipe for disaster to me!
