Nicolai's Electronically Shifted Gearbox Enduro Bike - Interbike 2018
@properp: Bro if e-bikes are for lazy sloths, who rides mx bikes? Even lazier dudes? Your argument has more holes than a seive.

Review: Bontrager SE4 2.6" Tire
@headshot: I think this is the problem with plus tyres. They're marketed towards aggressive riders, but they can't be made at a decent weight & still perform well under aggressive riding. I guess that makes sense because most of this marketing stuff is more aspirational than anything else (ie most riders don't ride as aggressively as the marketing material suggests). Either way, no bigger than a 2.5 maxxis for me thanks. Doesn't sound like much difference but these bonty tyres come up really big by comparison.

Review: Bontrager SE4 2.6" Tire
These came on my Remedy and they're really not very good. They roll in corners, they don't grip on anything loose, dusty or wet. They have the accuracy of a sledgehammer when riding anything remotely technical. The sidewalls are so thin that to actually get them to a pressure where you don't destroy your rims, they lose all the bonuses of being a plus sized tyre. These tyres make zero sense unless you enjoy riding non-technical hardpack. In which case, they're awesome. Granted it is also quite fast rolling, and it does smooth out the trail buzz thanks to it's large volume. I switched to a minion DHF & DHR II in Double Down casings and the difference is night and day.

@properp: just FYI I don't own an ebike, nor do I plan to. I'm just interested in the reason you seem to be so angry about them. Your argument makes ZERO logical sense so far.

@properp: except they're nothing like mopeds... You guys are funny getting all bent out of shape by people having fun in a way that's different to you

Bike Check: Zakarias Johansen's vs Greg Callaghan's Cube Stereo
I wouldn't mind trying the 2x di2 setup, big range and if you're using syncroshift you really don't need to worry about the front derailleur. I'd never use one on a mechanical setup (except on a road bike)
