Norco 2017 Range Carbon 650b & 29 - Feb. 22, 2017, 9:35 a.m.

STA… the 29er is half a degree steeper on the HTA. I'm not sure why spec the Range with a 180mm front rotor.

these options aren't going to help with sidewalls unfortunately.

The only angle that is relevant is the line from the bb to where the seat rail clamps at full extension.

that's because companies see more of a roi with ambassadors than racers… business 101

How can you ride Bridal at 40k on any bike. It's pretty flat. DH trails are dh trails and a bad comparison.

Easy to mod an e-bike or build up from scratch. Is Bjorn 's licensed?

I've said what I've needed to say and hopefully we can all enjoy the trails for years to come.

Regular bikes can't go uphill super fast or on Bridal Path at 40k. It's funny who is supporting this movement. Better to nip it in the bud before it becomes a problem imo.

maybe Old Buck is a bad example… Bridal Path. E-bikes are bad on so many levels but you are part of the bike industry so you have a vested interest in it being successful. Do any trail builders support e-bikes?

Shuttling happens on designated roadways to access the trails. A lot different than bombing up 40 km/hr on an e-bike on multi-use trails and taking out hikers/dogs/bikers/horses. And yes, e-bikes can be modded to go up 40 km/hr on Old Buck.

Specialized & the E-Bike Dilemma - Dec. 22, 2016, 4:44 p.m.

Actually it's thousands from USA that come up here to ride and shop. Our Canadian dollar is crap and we have way more trails. #trumpfree

Great points Andrew. My repair shop have straight out refused to work on any e-bike. He's turned a few away. A co-worker had a Stromer for commuting and the thing was always in the shop. I feel sorry for the mechanics as not only keeping up with standards, they will need an electronics degree to service them.
Remember this is the infancy of e-bike. Every year, manufacturers are going to up the wattage and make it lighter to compete with each other. Imagine the shit show with these things at 2,000 watts cruising the Bridal Path at 40k or having climbing contests up Severed. Ban them or tax them to death.

Has the Coastal Crew Sold Out? - Dec. 16, 2016, 1:55 p.m.

it will be pretty cool when people mod their e-bikes to a 1000 watts and start taking out people on the Bridal Path then all bikes get banned… great idea e-bikes are.
