Ridden and Rated: 7 Long-Travel 29ers
Seriously Pinkbike, is there an editorial or personal issue with Evil? The Wreckoning is an obvious top contender in this class. Both The Following and Wreckoning are widely loved aggressive 29ers that have been universally positively reviewed elsewhere. PB having never tested an Evil is... odd.

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
The big issue is the blurring of identity. What could easily shut down many heavily-used trails in the CO Front Range is the fact that motorbikes now look like regular bikes. That’s the blurred line referenced above. Any of us can now make a DIY 1000W throttle-controlled bike for a few hundred bucks that is basically a motorcycle. That is a problem for all mountain bikers because it can go (and will be ridden) much faster than either a pedal-assist or conventional bike. The pissed hikers, horse riders, runners etc. who have to deal with this electric motorcycle -that looks just like a mountain bike- will hate all of us because we look the same. Strava douchery has already increased pedestrian hate of MTBs on the Front Range. This will not end well for us. Pedal assist with a governed speed limit needs to be the only form of ebike sold, and it’s up to the manufacturers of ebikes to educate buyers.

David Lappartient Elected as UCI President
U C, I don't believe they add anything of value anywhere, for anyone. They're just fine with legendary dopers like Merckx running UCI sanctioned roadie events in 110 degree heat in oppressive-human-rights-abusing hellholes like Dubai, because it's all about money. Does anyone on Pinkbike think pro roadies are clean? Dope follows the UCI around like shadows follow the sun.

Yeti SB5 Turq - Review
It's kinda refreshing to hear that Yetis aren't always awesome exotics and Guides can be inconsistent. Might be nice to hear it sooner than two or three years after release... but honesty is cool anytime.

Yamaha to Launch Their Own eMTB Lineup
A key development to "eMTBs" will be if they are restricted to pedal-assist. Right now anyone, anywhere, can buy a 500-1000W hub motor with a thumb throttle on eBay from a number of Chinese and US sources. These are basically motorcycles. They are far faster than human powered bicycles. They are cheap and easy to put together. If widely adopted, throttle controlled ebikes will cause trail access to close up across the west. Hikers and equestrians are not going to notice the difference between a pedal-assist limited Yamaha and a homebrew high wattage throttle bike. One brush will paint every trail user on two wheels. Regular mountain bikers are already hated on high-use trails on Colorado's Front Range. Ebikes will bring trail closures.

Niner Rip 9 RDO Push Edition - Review
Niner's HQ is in Fort Collins and I see lots of them around. I don't get this bike's spec, premium price, or geometry but it seems like something the roadie-oriented Front Range money buyers can get behind. I had a first-gen RIP9 in 2008 and it was pretty good for the time, when FS 29ers were pretty bad overall. They have paid little attention to the progression in geometry over the last 10 years and it's their loss. Their Jet is now a 120mm 29er that seems like a better all around bike with a less schizophrenic identity.
