Video: The Places & People That Inspired Santa Cruz's New Heckler eMTB
@gumbytex: i think the problem i have with all this is that the testosterone fueled dick measuring was historically the domain of road cycling....MTB has been about having fun with your mates.....laughing at them when they fall off, taking the piss when they turn up for a ride and have forgotten their shoes.....yes i can afford theses crazy expensive bikes and i am close in age to a boomer.....i am competitive but i use it at work (how do you think you get to earning enough for these bikes) so at weekends and in my leisure i and i guess the majority of ebikers, we do it for enjoyment, an antidote to work, an escape from a competitive work environment... The truth is we don't want to be the fittest, the first, the fastest. Most of us are probably, when it comes to it, average riders, average weight, and average fitness. At 52 with three kids, a business and and and .....to be really "in shape" and a hero on the trails we would have to be incredibly self centred. So if i have a beef about anything its this constant assumption that everybody needs to be uber fit. It is a fact that on an ebike, i can go further and longer in the mountains...that's why i bought the bloody thing....no matter how far or not that is....i can do more with one than without.....still totally worn out at the end of it but my day of 'Enjoyment' has been longer.... Ebikes are growing because they are bringing the fun back into MTB and i hope that the super elite hero's who look down on ebikes eventually f.ck off to road cycling where they can worry endlessly about their protein intake, BMI and take their anger out on car drivers !!!

This new sub-category is not going to be for everyone but equally there are lots of sheep masquerading as Lions...........grow a set and ride what you like.....slagging off Boomers or Dentists as you like to call them is fine. But remember those same people aren't sitting back and waiting for it to be cool before they get involved....

@downcountry: Did you once have a bad experience at the dentists??? just think, over the years you've been inadvertantly funding ebikes. That must sting a bit !!!!!!

If you don't embrace change, roll with the times you're gonna end up being the retard with a mullet haircut and wearing one leather glove, thinking you are still cool..... Everything evolves.....

This ugly and already dated offering is what happens when a company comes to market late, reluctantly and clearly without the unanimous backing of the board.... Santa Cruz have been too close and emotionally attached to MTB...it's clouded their judgement. You can see the difference with some others......in the case of Specialized their enthusiasm for their products is obvious and it's why they are leading the way. Being too purist and snobby about this has resulted in a product that screams 'Go on then, if you must be a tosser, we have produced something for you' . You sense they will regard the buyers of this bike with disdain.... Perhaps they were better to stick to their core if their heart isn't really in it......
