    A correction FWIW, the demo arrangement was not a “twist” this year, they’ve been doing it for at least as long as I’ve been dropping by (the last three or so years, give or take). Fun times for sure, though.

  • Juan Ghey says:

    They’re CHARGING for demo rides?! That’s like charging people to watch commercials on TV. I’m getting really tired of the expense involved in this sport. I won’t be paying for any demo rides.

  • SteveO says:

    Yah shame on those gullible enough to pay.
    Paul does this help fund the local trail maintenance ?

  • Thorquin says:

    $20 to demo as many bikes as you want all day long isn’t exactly a great expense. Many shops charge between $50-$70 just to demo one bike. I was there. Demo’d 6 bikes over the course of the day. It was totally worth it to me to be able to try different bikes for fit, geometry, etc. Only downside is I don’t feel like you can truly test the full capabilities of a bike at Duthie. The terrain is relatively flat and tame compared to many other trails in our area. Still awesome though!

    • juan ghey says:

      It’s actually $40 if you’re not a member. Presumably bike makers want to sell bikes so having riders demo them should not cost the riders. The bikes are already marked way up over what it costs the companies to procure them from China. I’d much rather have the donation to the trail group be asked for not forced if you want to demo ride. Or have the bike makers pay the trail group fee. Riders pay for everything: race teams, R&D, marketing etc. Cut ’em a break already.

  • Jonzo says:

    My take on the above article is that the $20-$40 goes to Evergreen Trail Alliance. Money well spent to such a great trail organization!

    So its like a steering contest? Or a race for people afraid of real motorcycles? LOL I’m sure its silly fun but should be called PunyMoto not eMtb.

  • Peper says:

    These bikes are here to stay. They have been so well received overseas that it’s a given. We need to find a way to work them into the community or it’ll get ugly for both sides.

    • Juan Ghuy says:

      Not really the EU is considering a bunch of new regulations for e-bicycles. Including insurance requirements if operated on public roads.

  • Scotch Henessey says:

    I recently bought a Haibike All Mountain 5.0. I’ve raced cross country bikes since the early 90s…and as true as I am to a purist MTBer…I simply love going out with my 14 year old son on our ebikes. I’ve exposed him to so many trails he normally probably wouldn’t want to suffer. These bikes are here to stay! We entered this race BTW!

  • Hunter Armstrong says:

    Not cool.

    I am the spouse of one of the Warriors that went on this ride with President Bush. I will tell you that it was a life-changing experience for both me and my husband. There was nothing “fake” or scripted about what we got to see and do with President Bush and his lovely wife. There was nothing political about this ride! This was a truly humanitarian act by two lovely people that wanted to share their ranch and their hearts with these injured soldiers!

  • SMSgt Jay Ulloa says:

    I was just wondering if the Warriors were allowed to keep the bikes? I was thinking about donating my Trek EX9.

  • GiGolfer says:

    What a great event…kudos to Wounded Warriors, Trek and President Bush. Being a vet, organizations like Wounded Warriors are near and dear to my heart. They have a lot of programs to help our veterans and you can help sponsor them with money, or better yet time.

Gunnison Growler: A true mountain biker’s race

    That looks like a lot of fun, I will put that on my list for 2017.

  • fasterjason says:

    I am east coast but I love the Gunnison area for its riding and its geology. I first rode Hartman 17 years ago and it was a blast, flat and fast on top and the climb from the parking lot up the wall is short but brutal. The granite ridge offers super fun technical riding. It is a sea of sage up on top. I look forward to going back soon. A trip should include CB, Hartman, Monarch, and Salida trails.

    27.5+, 135x12mm rear drop-out[okay?], 72degree head angle[not sure if their website botched that], only accepts 1-1/8″ steerer, too small 27.2 seat-tube diameter. All of these older standards and lack of seatpost options while, “Available as frame only”; but only shows options to buy frame with fork and extras, or buy complete bike starting at $2600.

    The DMR Trailstar for $550 with updated standards makes this Option-B not even an option!

  • MarkOnMTB says:

    Hey, just noticed that the specs on this rides website have not been updated since 2013. So the sites specs may not reflect the NAHBS build.

  • Vik says:

    Since the website doesn’t have this particular model [Option B+] listed on it you can safely assume the site specs don’t reflect this build.
