Opinion: eMTBs are Going to Change Mountain Bike Racing Forever
I understood it less as eMTBs pushing enduro racing into obscurity and more that they require a slightly different marketing strategy (one the prioritizes visibility/coverage) due to the people likely to buy them. Because a huge portion of eMTB sales go to people who are less interested in the details of the sport (i.e. sufferfests, backcountry rides with huge climbs, super in depth tech articles, etc.) in order to target this new audience brands need to make sure that they prioritize easily consumable media - like a DH race. Enduro won't be less relevant to the people riding it, but it may become less of a priority for bike companies because the people watching and paying close attention to enduro races are a more niche, hardcore group of MTB fans (aka, not the market for eMTBs). In order to reach the growing eMTB market, brands need to be seen in whatever venue reaches the masses. And unfortunately, enduro racing has not yet been able to achieve the coverage needed to reach the masses in the same way a DH race (like supercross) already does. That said, your last point definitely provides some hope! I look forward to the day when I can watch live POVs of Jesse and the other guys/gals tearing it up at EWS events.

Transition Patrol LARGE - CUSTOM BUILD

$2700 USD
2015 Transition Patrol, Orange This is hands down the most fun, capable bike I have ever owned. It can handle fast, gnarly DH trails with ease and yet is efficient enough for long backcountry epics. Transition was ahead of the game and the geometry of this bike doesn’t look out of place alongside this year’s aggressive all-mountain bikes. The bike shows some cosmetic imperfections from regular use as highlighted in the photos. Most are only scratches in the 3M with the paint untouched. Included is a Rockguardz carbon down tube protector for additional protection and the whole bike has been wrapped with Invisiframe 3M since day one. I’m a bit OCD about my bikes so I have taken every precaution to keep this thing looking spotless. The fork was freshly rebuilt, frame pivot bearings replaced, and the brakes freshly bled a week ago, all with zero rides since. FRAME: 2015 Transition Patrol LARGE - Invisiframe wrapped since day one, added Rockguardz down tube protector SUSPENSION FORK: Rockshox Pike RCT3 (just rebuilt, zero rides since) SHOCK: Cane Creek DB Air CS (Uber adjustable, super plush) COCKPIT BARS: KORE Alloy (800mm) STEM: Raceface Aeffect (45 mm) SADDLE: WTB Volt SEAT POST: Rockshox Reverb 150mm travel DRIVETRAIN GROUPSET: Shimano SLX (Brand new 2020 SLX derailleur, zero rides) CRANKS: Raceface Turbine BRAKES: Shimano SLX (freshly bled, zero rides) WHEELSET RIMS: WTB ST i23 HUBS: Sram MTH746 FRONT TIRE: Schwalbe Magic Mary 2.35 (brand new) REAR TIRE: Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 (brand new) PEDALS: Could include Shimano SPDs if interested May be willing to sell with Santa Cruz/King wheelset shown in first photo for the right price. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions! Prefer local sale in the general Seattle area but willing to ship at buyer’s expense.

Former Bike Mag Staff Launch New 'Beta' Title
@Grunk: I think you’re reaction is valid but at the same time sports are inherently related to politics. Everything from trail systems being built, the rights of cyclists to ride certain trails, and access to land are all political conversations that need to happen, as do conversations about access to the sport as a whole and the role the sport plays in a larger sense. I 100% agree that we still need content that’s purely sport/entertainment. The majority of it should be that way. However, to avoid/push back against the other stuff (the “politics” that play a role in how our sport functions) is to miss the mark. People look to magazines like this for an escape from the politics, I get that. But at the same time it’s not productive to think that our sport is somehow not intertwined in all that because it is.
