Opinion: How Many Batteries Does a Mountain Bike Really Need?
I’m not usually one to shit on new technology, but I gotta say, fuck this electronic shit. They are fixing something that isn’t broken. I’ll do all I can to avoid AXS, I’ve tried it, it worked well, but not incredibly better than a well setup X01 kit. I also got to watch a buddy miss a ride recently because his freaking battery wasn’t charged. He felt like an idiot and we laughed and went riding. And who the hell wants a $400 or whatever derailleur?? And live valve suspension? 99% of riders done have any clue how to set up their regular suspension and probably don’t know that it’s even set up poorly. Are they really gonna notice live valve? I have a hard enough time keeping my fork and shock serviced and operating well, I ride a lot. Making them more complicated is not the answer. I like riding bikes because they are simple. I can fix virtually anything in a pinch with a small toolkit and a box of old spare parts. That’s one of the best attributes compared my other toys like dirt bikes and snowmobiles. Adding unnecessary electronics like axs and live valve etc is fucking stupid. And I bet pretty soon we won’t be able to get a high end bike without it.

First Ride: 2022 Trek Rail 9.9 - More Battery Power & Updated Geometry
I’ve got nothing against e bikes, but when I see a photo in an article like this of someone going up a steep descent in an area that I regularly descend at a high rate of speed I tend to get really choked. 2 way traffic on shit that’s been high speed DH for ever is a really really bad idea, regardless of what yer riding. I don’t want to get hurt because someone thinks it’d be neat to try to climb downhill trails on their e bike... don’t encourage that shit...

Pinkbike Poll: What If eMTBs Weighed & Cost The Same As Regular Bikes?
Then pull over and let faster riders go by. I don’t ride an e bike, one of the reasons is that people are such dicks when you ask very nicely if you can go by when they get to a good spot. Its not my fault I like to climb fast. It’s just as big an inconvenience to be the passer as it is to be the passee... I can’t imagine how rude most riders are to someone on an e bike out having a great day and just needing 1.5 seconds to go by and go the speed that’s comfortable to them for the next 30 minutes of climbing rather than hanging out behind your slow ass for an extra 15 minutes...

Orange Introduces The Switch 6 Team
No it’s not. Once you try a bigger bike long enough to get it dialed in you’ll realize all your other bikes were too small.

@ReeferSouthrland: you must be the guy in the trump shirt I saw using the singles line in whis a couple years ago. Got to ride by yourself a few times as people kept skipping the chair. Was pretty funny to see...
