Searching for the Limit on the Transition Scout - Video
Wow that seemed like a huge drop for an Enduro bike. Must have been the camera angle LOL. I've seen Kelend at lots of local PNW races and chatted with him a few times. Good guy, great to see him getting some exposure.

Schwalbe Magic Mary 2.6" Apex - Review
"Dare I say e-mtb......I've never driven a tractor up trails as that would be cheating" Sorry Paul riding an e-mtb is cheating. Save that crap for ePinkBIke.

Ask Pinkbike: Fork Travel, Mini-DH Bikes, and Junior Racing
@BenPea: Fox quit making Talas forks this year, although I see the Talas air spring available in the parts list, so I think theoreticall you could convert a Float to a talas for extra cost. Other than that, the Pike and Lyric/yari are the only dropper forks left. I totally agree, I have a dropper on my E29 and it makes a huge difference in feel, makes the bike feel quick and climb much better in fact I leave it in the lower position most of the time, even on milder downhills because I like the quicker steering old school feel and lower BB, and then I raise it to get rowdy.

Opinion: Save the DH Bike?
I'm always amazed at the guys who say they can do everything on an Enduro bike. I've got an E29 and a DH bike and the difference is enormous. I ride the trail bike all over on big mountain epics as well as Enduro races, but I would never enjoy riding Whistler Bike Park or other suitable gnar on the trail bike. We just had an enduro race at the local area where we normally have DH races and so I traded the bikes back and forth and it was like night and day. Maybe I'm just not aggressive enough but I'm so much faster and safer on the DH bike once the gnar rating gets to a certain point (and conversely, I would hate to ride the DH bike on "trails"). As long as i have opportunities to ride the right terrain I will always own a DH bike.

Mondraker Bikes Coming to the US
@RedRedRe: Just spent a week vacation in Chamonix, FR. For what its worth I saw e-bikes being ridding everywhere albeit mostly on the street, looked like commuter and townie use primarily, but lots of them. Several up at the lift areas as well, I only really noticed them riding up the fire road to the top, not sure if/when they came down the hill. The ultimate was seeing an ebike on the chairlift ha ha, although he was riding up from there although I noticed him walking it quite a bit on the trail he was climbing up. personally I think the battle will be lost eventually, they are going to be too seductive for many people and too hard to police on the trail.

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
@WAKIdesigns: I wish you could come visit Washington state and we could ride together because I disagree with everything you just said about using a taller gear and standing climbing. I've seen some people climb well for short bursts standing up but nothing truly technical and not for long. Actually i will be riding from Chamonix for the next week albeit on guided tours. But probably the closest we will ever be in proximity.
