    Do you ride your EMTB with people on acoustics?

    I have seen and heard a few people saying it's better not to ride EMTB with people on acoustics as it's not fair and you will leave them behind etc etc... but so far for me this is nonsense and hasn't been a problem at all when I have gone riding with my (fitter) friend. My logic is: You can...

    My new bike was improperly setup and dangerous... what would you do?

    Hi guys. So, I bought a Cube 140 HPC Action Team last week from a sports chain (the only place that had it in stock) which cost £5500 and picked it up earlier this week.

    Is 140mm travel fine for the vast majority of situations (Swiss Alps)?

    I am currently deciding between a 140mm and a 160mm EMTB, both fully kitted out with Fox Factory kashima everything. I live in Switzerland and want to do mainly XC tours and mountain trails, likely with some some non-crazy downhill, and am looking for a bike that will comfortably eat up the KM's...

    Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC 625 Action Team... great value for money?

    I have been researching e-bikes to buy that offer good price/performance and I first saw Decathlons new Stilus and was quite interested. Then I saw The Cube Stereo 140 series and was distracted by that. However I then saw the Cube 160 HPC series and stumbled across the following bike: Cube...

    Probably the best video I have seen that explains, via a true-life and fully relatable story, why EMTB's are relevant for many of us... :)

    Hi guys, Hope you are all enjoying your long Easter weekends! Long story short, I want to convert my full suspension MTB to an E-MTB so that when I buy a "proper" EMTB I will have a backup EMTB for friends and loved ones. I have seen that there are various Chinese motors you can buy (like the...

    EMTB high budget... buy now or wait till end of 2019?

    New member here so hello and hope you are all doing well! I am in the lucky situation where my workplace will pay half of any EMTB purchase (they will contribute up to 5000EUR, so a 10000EUR bike max). This means that I have the luxury of making a significant EMTB purchase, though of course I do...
