    2019 Haibike frame cracked in half

    Can you transfer everything you have to a new frame? $2,500 would go a long way to offset that.

    Alloy vs Carbon rims for eMTB

    Some things to consider. First, what what benefit(s) are you looking for in carbon vs. alloy wheels? If it's primarily weight; if so, what's percent weight of the wheel difference relative to the eMTB are you looking at? Second, if wheel damage is a consideration, remember many eMTBs utilize...

    How often do you service your suspension?

    My current bike is a 2010 Santa Cruz Tallboy I bought new. I grease the rear suspension leak monthly. As for the shocks, I clean and lube the stanchions after every ride, but have never needed to service them internally. I check the pressures every couple of years or so.

    Let’s talk crank arm lengths…

    MD, I'd have to agree with all your points. Surprising as it is, I believe mtb design still has a lot of development potential, and ergonomics is one of these areas as you describe.

    I'm thinking Photochromatic sunglasses?

    I now have worn these for 10 yrs or more and now have four pair of Tifosi Seek photochromatic sunglasses. They don't wear out. They are all I wear for eye protection. They're on sale now for under $50 at the link below...
