The EWS Announces an eMTB Race Series for 2020
@phops: At the beginning of my original comment, I clearly stated that what I was saying was going to come across as an elitist type comment based on fitness. I'm not sure if your comments are actually trying to make a point, I see you defending your position and perhaps (even though I seem to have the crowd behind me) you could be right. For the sake of another Pinkbike pissing match it's better we just agree to disagree and see where this actually goes. I don't have a crystal ball to predict the future and certainly have no reason to get all up-in-arms about the topic. Thank you for your opinion, sorry if this got your blood pressure up. Go for a ride and forget about it. Cheers.

@phops: That's not the same arguement, 180mm of travel and lockouts do not enable people to ride 3x the distance out into the back country, or to the top of a mountain, the same way an e-bike does. While I understand your point about forward progress of frames and suspension, all of those things still required people to have an underlying level of fitness. You need to be fit enough to ride a 180mm travel, lockout equiped enduro bike to the top of a mountain in order to descend it. An e-bike by design is removing that obstacle so that an out of shape, reduced skill, rider can climb 3000ft and then descend it.

This is going to come across as an elitist comment of the fitness variety, but... I really don't like e-bikes because they promote access to areas that used to require a higher level of fitness to enjoy. While I want everybody to get out and enjoy biking, the use of e-bikes means that there will be a significant increase in people riding in areas that are way above their skill level for the simple reason that the long climbs/distance that previously held people back from these trails will no longer matter. From an EMS perspective we are going to see a lot more injuries in the back country from people who's fitness isnt up to par with where the bikes can take them.

Review: Spank's Foam-Filled Spike 350 Vibrocore Wheelset
I use these wheels on my trail bike and have had more cases than Chris Brown's legal team. Previously I ran DT FR570's with hope pro4's, these rims are tougher and lighter but the hub engagement definitely isn't as refined as what you get on higher end hubs like hope, I9, etc. For the price you are getting a great wheel set.

Curtis Bikes' New Thumpercross Steel Downhill Bike - Bespoked Show 2019
That truly is some very sexy brazing. The only thing I don't like is the that the stanchions are larger diameter than the frame tubes, to me that just looks wrong regardless of the material science.

Angel Suarez Suffered Dislocated Shoulder in Maribor
Turns out young talent breaks just the same as old talent... "Age is no guarantee of efficiency and youth is no guarantee of innovation".
