Video: Specialized's New Turbo Levo Ad is 'Mind Blowing'
@DaveJube: that's the ride leaders/ride participants choice & if the guy is cool with waiting, what's the problem? I am typically the slowest rider in my group and give 100% effort to keep up (I'm riding with people that are 20 - 30 yrs younger than I am) ~ I don't care if they are up front, as mentioned earlier "for me" the challenge is the trail, the bike, gravity and how determined am I to haul my extra 50lbs up that goddamn hill so I can get my flow on :) Easy answer is I never quit even if I have to walk for a bit and I'm not concerned with how fast or slow anyone else is riding :p

@DaveJube: No discredit intended :) ~ just my thoughts on the matter at the moment. My friend bought this bike to help with some physical things. I totally support him in riding it, especially after riding it myself. As crazy as it sounds, it's the "effort" I put into riding that I love more than anything. It's doing something that a lot of people talk about, but don't do because it's really hard and requires mental toughness to be good at it. As I stated too, maybe when I'm at the point I can't do this without help anymore I will get one. My fear there is that something happens and the bike malfunctions and I can't get it out of the woods under my own power (drives my wife nuts that I like to do long technical rides alone). I will cross that bridge when old age forces me to.

yup that's the one! I talked with a guy that helped develop that track a couple weekends ago at the Alsea Falls shuttle day and really want to get over there to practice jumping.

That looks like a blast! They just opened a pump track near where I work & I'm going to have to try it.

Video: Aggy Rides an eMTB in Kona's 'Your Brain on E'
It's time to start a forum called Chartreuse Bike devoted solely to eBike propaganda and it's disdain for simpler more organic cycling technology... I totally agree with mokgot "Asli langsung Konak gua liat ginian." ~ translated ~ "eBikes aren't for everyone and in most cases are just a crutch for a lazy ass that doesn't ride to get to the trailhead"

So, I rode one recently; It's an E-bike (meh) & in the owner's case, I get why he bought it. It's not my thing in the least and the ad appeals to a mindset I don't have about riding bikes in any format (road, MTB or whatever). Simpler and more analog is why I ride bikes, pitting a persons determination to earn those turns & not relying on anything to assist you is where my energy is directed. Maybe someday I may change my mind, but I can't see that happening any time soon even though I'm 56 yrs old and not nearly as fast or resilient as I was at 25, that and can you imagine trying to lug that turd out of the woods if something tanked? Not me...

Behind the Bike - Knolly's New Fugitive
I'm told that if you do it just right you can use the arc of one linkage passing another linkage to pop the top off a Molson bottle ~ is that true?
