Pinkbike Poll: Who Introduced You to Mountain Biking?
In '83 I bought a used Honda CR 125 at age 15. My dad didn't want to bring me to the MX tracks so I had to ride the doubletracks that were around our town. To avoid getting caught by the police I had to scout all the tracks before actually riding them. This I did on my bike : a 5speed touring bike with a flatbar and big tires. Already found out then that 29ers roll better....lol First real MTB was in 1997, long time after the last MX bike had been sold.

First Ride: Juliana Roubion
Instead of launching a separate brand, Santacruz 'd better launched more color options for their existing frames, like they used to do.

Opinion: Further Faster - Thoughts on the Coming E-Ride Revolution
What's the use of an e-bike when biking is about fitness ? But in some cases it can be handy : when both Mr and Mrs want to ride together and the Mrs hasnt' got the strength or fitness to stay with Mr. She can keep up with him and doesn't get frustrated and he doesn't have to wait all the time and get frustrated. So that's a good motivation for riding together.

Opinion: How To Save Downhill Racing
Road biking may be boring but from a sponsors perspective it's worth gold. Imagine a rider staying ahead of the peleton for 3 or 4 hours and getting in focus on TV all the time : that's millions worth of publicity he gets for a bargain. That's the problem with DH : races are too short, you can't even read the name of the sponsor. So who wants to invest money in it apart from the people that are involved in the sport itself ?
