I really don't see the connection between a chairlift and an eMTB... unless of course people want to start riding chairlifts down trails! Anyway, chairlifts are generally operated at private ski...

I don't get what my age has to do with this issue. And how do chairlifts relate to eMTBs? I'm a bit lost.

Also, the original post made it clear that IMBA's report is limited to Type 1 pedal assist...

Find some locals to ride with; watch them and learn. That's probably how most of us learned to do it! And way to go for trying it out, that's awesome!

Yep, just drop the pressure in your studded tires and you won't need to worry so much about the studs slipping on dry pavement.

I thought it was really weird, especially as I was riding in jeans, a t-shirt and a backpack. Like I said, I wasn't even going that fast. However, I'm not sure how great a triathlete that guy was: in...

I've had this happen. It's weird. The last one was a tri-dork; I heard the hollow sound of his aero wheel for a while before I checked my six and noticed him. I told him he needed to ask before he...

I went from ss mtbs (26", 29") to fatbikes and have loved it! More traction, float, and stability.

Hm, interesting. I've had issues with both cantis and vbrakes in ice, snow, and slush. Most days, the Avid SD7s on my Monocog were great, but on longer rides through snow and slush I would lose...

Joa, I would go with the Kona. It's got hydro brakes which will be a step up from the Novela mechanical brakes on the Giant. Other than that, they appear to be very similar. Both will be strong and...
