Video: Norco Bicycles Announces New Range VLT E-Enduro Bike
Having extra power to get into long back-country rides or to go higher, and more laps, up steep access roads does make E-bikes a no brain'er to beginners and veteran riders a like. But something isn't just right about it still to me, did anyone else see how the rider in the video's "pop" off things look a bit odd, like how no matter how you balance the motor and battery, and put it in a carbon frame, its still extra weight. I've been riding for over a decade and the challenge as always been one of weight. As MotoGreg pointed out though, its a really good alternative to shuttling in a gas burning vehicle, no matter how efficient it is, it's still burning a non-renewable energy source. I have seen 1 of these E-bike Norco Ranges already this summer and near sunset the Large rider, non offence meant, just pointing out a fact that this machine could transport a range of riders, went "screaming" up hill, I was on my way down, and I saw him then finish his ride just as the light was getting really low. It was a 5km plus climb and nearly 4km down, it was something to think about. I am not advocating for e-bikes, as I've been in this sport for so long I can't help but think how the slow climb has added to the enjoyment of riding, although I still am not a strong climber, it's the "earning my turns" feeling of accomplishment. In the end I think yes, this is a good step in the right direction for the environment. But it's also not, as more people get into riding more trails will be ripped up. This is not a cut and dry subject. So I am left thinking, is this a case of "It's not broken, so don't fix it" for those who peddle up hill to get to the down, or is this something that could become normal? as it seems e-bikes are catching on.

BC Bike Ride Announces Expanded Tour Packages in British Columbia
@drevisuals: it a depends where you go, I did a week in northern BC for about $500, 6 days, that's food, gas and a little of paid camping. Just google maps or earth the area, find a flat spot or open are to park your car(sleep in side of/use a tent) cook your own food, find a nice lake to clean your self, I've even done this in squamish many times. You just have to think out of the box and like a 1940's out doors man, excited you have a car and a Mtn bike of course.

I have lived in Masset now for a year and would love to know where some trails are. I saw you guys and your trucks when you where at the grind coffee shop across the street from the coop. I couldn't go talk at that time though.

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
@StevieJB: That's sounds perfect, you summed it up perfectly! But do you remember when "all mountain, Enduro" where Called mid-travel bikes. that was to vaque, I think if bike sales people used your discriptions there would be lots of educated newbies out there.
