ANYTHING to shave a second off a strava time!
Ride around features?!
Around here, people ride around bumps and roots.
I don't like overly-low bb heights, but found the previous Slash a bit too high in the high position. It made the bike feel a bit teeter-tottery when cornering on flow trails. But you could pedal through anything.
Have fun experimenting!
No EWS rider here, but I certainly could pass the blindfold test when swapping mino link positions on the previous version.
I prefer the handling in high, but the cornering in low. Solved with a 150 mm air shaft in the fork, to pull the bb down a bit, and steepen the HTA a bit, when in low.
Note that my use is very rugged trail riding. No bike park-style stuff, so big caveat, for sure.
For sure, one of two cars that I:
Never. Should. Have. Sold!
"The void Ricardo wants to fill does not exist for me because I’ve been stuffing it full of bikes; and they charge me up more than an M3 convertible for a fraction of the cost."
Awesome sauce! Thanks for the tour.
True on the 2 tooth difference not being monumental, but the 42/50 jump already drives me nuts.
I'll wait for my first worn out drivetrain, then convert all three mtbs to Shimano 12-speed. It WILL be a bit painful to buy the drivers.
How about the sorta-kinda semi-slick Bonty XR3, Andrew?
When I first saw it, I was skeptical. After I rode it, I was sold. Not for everybody up front, but it rips as a back tire.
Has anybody mentioned that what we all call motorcycles are more correctly "engine" cycles?!
So, yeah, ebikes might be motorcycles, but motorcycles are not.
Cam, you're not old, you've just reached the age of "maturing nicely". I'm a bit older, and I'll be getting an e-bike next season, but it will be to replace my dirt bike.
E-bike content surely brings the commenters!
Great, honest review. New and improved Shapeshifter thingy for this year, right?
North America FTW! Canada or USA baby, either way works for me!
Intriguing. And beautiful. Please get on one!
1. How does the limited wrap on the chainring play out?
2. Approximate rame weight?
Yup. Kind of a bummer to see MM so darn dominant, but what an otherworldly talent he has.
I'd like to see a closer fight for the championship this season.
