Ridden & Rated: 4 of the Best eMTB Motor Systems for 2020 - Bosch vs Brose vs Shimano vs Fazua
To all the Dipshit's that are ragging on this category. How many of you drive to the trailhead instead of using the Mountain bike as a bicycle and cycling there? Here is my issue & my heartbreak. I have been mountain biking since 1986. I just turned 50. I have a blood condition that has made any sort of exercising put my heart at risk. I get terribly short of breath doing mild exertions. Before this happened I still biked to the trailhead on weekends (50 minutes) My rides were 20 miles on the trail. My whole life I have been a cyclist. Now I can't ride anymore. I am considering this category of bicycle more & more. My main problem is the prejudice against it in my own mind. I have them against young kids and anyone under say 45 out on the trail. But now here I am. Unable to ride my bikes. When I consider buying an e-mtb I think I am over my own prejudice but I still feel so much shame over what I think other mountain bikers will think of me. I don't look 50. I don't act 50. Regardless of that shame I am going to have to go this route if my life outside of my job is to have meaning. I can't rock climb anymore either due to the medical problem or go on strenuous hikes. Anything cardiovascular is difficult for me. Pinkbike. Thank you for this wealth of knowledge. I truly appreciate it.

This is the first of there video's I have actually been able to watch in it's entirety without my ADD making me click back to the homepage. Maybe it was not having to stare at Calvin's mustache.

Recap Day 2: MegaKami & Boogaloo - Kamikaze Games 2018
@casman86: I try to stay out of this debate but sometimes ignorant close minded responses really piss me off. Be thankful you are young and have good health. Like any kid in America I stared biking at the age of three. Started MTB'ing in 1986. I'm 48 now. I have a serious nerve injury that I have had 5 surgeries for. In order to survive everyday I take more pills than my parents and grandparents combined. I still Mountain bike but it is so incredibly difficult. I actually don't look forward to riding anymore because I am aware of the physical pain that I will have to deal with afterwards. My condition is deteriorating. At some point I will give up and buy an e-bike. What stops me from doing it now is just knowing the disgust that other MTBers will think when they see me, a 48yo male who looks to be in good health cruising uphill on an ebike. Get over your young self and your high minded opinions. One day you will be possibly too old or injured to pedal uphill and an ebike ill be your salvation. Not everyone on an ebike is a young stupid clueless kid that knows nothing about biking. I apologize for my rant. Have a great day and try to keep an open mind in life. Not everything is black & white.

FSA Releases Wider Gradient Wheels
The weights from the website for 650b & 29er 1676; 1736. Whats the point of 24 spokes if they weigh that much and are therefore more unreliable if a spoke does break out on the trail or a multi day riding trip?

FSA Releases Wider Gradient Wheels
I'm guessing because the weights are probably up in 1600-1700 range. But weight I didn't want to sound like an uniformed PB commenter and so I took a look. From FSA website for 27.5 & 29er: 1676; 1736. Now I have already sworn off anymore 28 hole wheels because when a spoke breaks they go out too quickly. 24 forget about it. But the only real advantage to running less spokes is less weight. But if the rim/hub weighs more than standard aluminum, whats the point?
