Fazua's New Ride 60 Motor System Has More Power & Range
As much as an ebike isn't for me, I think having an ebike where the motor/battery can be removed is surely the way forward. This is part of the way towards that. For those who get an ebike for fitness, it's a stepping stone from ebike to normal bike. For those who don't have confidence that motors/batteries will list the lifetime of the bikes ownership (me - I can't afford to replace bikes often) then you aren't stuck completely if a proprietary component dies, or battery degrades, etc. Yes, the frame would be slightly heavier than that of a similar non-ebike frame, but I doubt the difference would be huge...

Review: The 2022 Canyon Strive is Longer, Slacker, & Still Has a Shapeshifter
It just depends what you ride (trail wise). I've gone from a shorter nimble bike (Mojo HD3) to a loooong bike (Geometron). Both are great in their own ways - hd3 was fun to hustle on tight tracks whilst geometron you feel so low and centred on the bike meaning speed is easy. If I rode trail centres all the time the former is better. If you ride step off piste stuff all the time, the G1 is imperious. It's good that more long options are coming out as I personally feel that the g1 fits me (significantly) better than the hd3, and that bikes like this may be a good fit for other tall people. Obviously people can size down, and standover heights are less, so hopefully there's still enough choice out there for everyone? Ps. I'm 188cm tall, and other people's personal preferences may differ! ;-)

Review: Scott Spark RC World Cup - 120mm Is The New XC
I can't work out if I like the concealed shock or not... Awkward for adjusting but surely the protection from mud etc must be awesome. Did you notice whether the shock stayed cleaner over the duration of the test, and if that made any noticable extension to the lifespan of its performance?

Review: Aenomaly SwitchGrade Saddle Angle Adjuster
I think everyone who has one probably saw the benefits before the purchase though, so more likely to like it! I think what is missing to the argument is the terrain people ride - if you ride up hills with a consistent gradient it's easier to steepen your saddle and not think this is necessary. If you consistently ride rolling terrain this probably won't help you either. However, if you have a massive variety of gradient on your doorstep, then the likelihood that this will be of benefit will increase... Personally I'd like one, but they've not done a Bikeyoke compatible version yet...

@stormracing: Something like this - https://dirtyridesmtbapparel.co.uk/shop/mtb-pants/ I've not used them personally but I think I remember some positive feedback.

I think 7mesh do a long trouser that you trim down to fit. Not sure how long they are, but if you have the coin they might be your best bet? That or one of the custom companies...
