They should completely redesign the suspension around the ability to accept a water bottle. PASS

Spotted: Is This a New Specialized Status?
DPX2, gross. It can’t be too much more to put on an X2? Given the intention of this bike, why not?

Video: eMTB Laps in Squamish with Remy Metailler
I bought an eBike so I could turn my local trails into DH laps and attempt crazy technical climbs. I average just as high of a heart rate and am wiped after each ride. I ride moto and have been riding for over 20 years and these things are game changers. Remember, they have different modes, run out of power on steep climbs (torque) and the assist is limited to 20 mph. This means that you are simply suffering at a higher speed, given you have the discipline to push through. People ride for different reasons but if you have the coin to add a tool to the toolbox, I’d argue that an eBike will make you a better rider.

Opinion: Ode to an Oddball - Rediscovering Two-Wheeled Fun
After 20 years of riding purpose-built race machines, XC, enduro, etc, I ditched the space ace wonder bike and built on Banshee Paradox hardtail (I know, cliche). I’m now riding trails through a whole new lens and having a ball.

Privateer Launch $3,075 161 Enduro Race Bike
In isolation that seems extreme but combined with a long reach and you have a bike that is designed to go up sustained climbs then down long descents. But, if your trails are more rolling, it’s not an ideal balance geo. My point: buy a bike for your needs and not what’s “in.” This bike is made for enduro racing.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
@nyles: a better car comparison would be Land Rover. Bought mainly for status but still has some cool technology. Unfortunately durability is lacking for both brands. Toyota is more like Trek. They are both kind of boring but you’ll rarely have a quality issue. I’m a huge Toyota fanboy btw.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
Truth. Plus buying a used Yeti is riskier than strolling unprotected through a red light district. It may be a good time and work out well, but there’s a good chance you’ll be paying a high price down the road...I always laugh at the number of “new triangle” or “new frame” listings for sale.
