Nicolai's Electronically Shifted Gearbox Enduro Bike - Interbike 2018
@jayacheess: If you care about "peak fitness," that's great, and obviously you're gonna have to work your ass off to achieve it. But don't for a second think you're gonna live any longer or have a better quality-of-life just because you shaved time off your enduro result. After a certain point, there's diminishing returns on health outcomes like life expectancy. What matters more, not just for staying alive past 60 but living the longest possible life, is consistent cardio exercise over many years—right up until the moment of your death. It doesn't have to be at the insane level that most cyclists train and ride at. That's overkill. We do it for other reasons. Hell, I still ride a hardtail *because I like it.* So, e-bikes can be fantastic for people who want to be optimally healthy (longest possible lifespan, etc), but not necessarily have the greatest athletic performance, which, again, is different.

Kind of wish this would happen, just so we wouldn't see you miserable people comment in every single article you're not interested in.

@Mngnt: This is why I love e-bikes: to be healthy, you don't really *need* to work as hard as you do when you're riding a bike. On a bike, we're out there doing extremely strenuous exercise for hours upon hours, multiple days a week. It's just not necessary. There's diminishing returns.

They should have put the gearbox near the bottom bracket; not the rear hub. That way, they could have removed all that unsprung weight and improved rear-suspension performance. Also, it needs Fox Live Valve and a Live-Valve-specific suspension layout for the ultimate in uncompromised suspension performance and range-extending efficiency. Though I wouldn't buy it; too expensive.

Jamis' New 3VO-Suspended Hardline Enduro Bike - Interbike 2018
I'm waiting for the first Live-Valve-specific suspension layout. None of these pedaling/ anti-squat gimmicks. Just no-compromises suspension.

I get "GT" confused with "Giant" bicycles. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Bike Check: R-Dog's Hawaiian Theme Trek Session - Crankworx Whistler 2018
I kinda want a bike with dinosaurs and pizza on it like the t-shirt Big Boy made Scott Cranmer wear yesterday.

@bizutch: "Running over people in parking lots?" You are one pathetic dude to spend your time making shit up about people on the internet.

Uh, what? "Disparaging the bike company's good name?" Alex never even mentioned the bike company's name. Spot's CEO chose to go after Alex in what was universally regarded as a terrible PR decision. The CEO even apologized. It sounds more like you've got an ax to grind here as you're clearly resentful of their success. https://www.reddit.com/r/MTB/comments/8gahlj/spots_bike_brand_damage_control_after_singletrack/

@cmkneeland: Pinkbike is for mountain *bikes* (and too often being a dick about it); YouTube is for mountain bikers/ people who mountain bike.
