    What’s the weights of these fancy treads? Thinking Martello front / Morsa rear might be pretty darn great. Better than my HRII front / Rekon+ rear combo though?

    The guy looks a bit confused.. So many names/numbers and wheelsets!

    I wonder why DT still uses the 1200/1501/1700 numbers. Wouldn’t it just be easier to ditch those numers and rename them to their classic hubs number? 180/240/350. They would save money on decall plastic too. 🙂

    The Crest MK3’s have been taking a good bit of criticism on a certain popular podcast. Reportedly less durable than the previous model Crests (ZTR Crest). Any comment from users or from Stan’s on the durability of the Crest MK3’s? Thanks

    Barb and Jim, you don’t!!

  • Larsv says:

    2:30 minutes of products, an not one single non-mototized bike. ;-/

  • Saris Mercanti says:

    @Larsv

    For better or worse, interbike was mostly an ebike show this year. Pivot was the only brand holding it down for mountain bikers, although Santa Cruz was well represented in dozens of booths.

    But don’t worry, most of our interbike coverage was non-motorized. Lots of cool tools, wheels, tires, and accessories to talk about. We have a few more posts coming on those topics.

  • Larsv says:

    @Saris: thank’s for the heads up! Iwas at Eurobike and found the amount of e-bikes quite unsettling, but from your response I understand Interbike was even worse?

  • Justin says:

    Are these electric assist, so the motor only engages when you’re actually pedaling, or will these bikes simply motor to the top with you along for the ride?

  • Craig says:

    As an avid mountain biker at age 42, I love the idea of this in 15-20 years when I don’t have the endurance anymore. It’s great that the technology is being developed for people that aren’t fortunate enough to have the lungs or strength to go uphill, but love being outdoors and going downhill. Keep them coming!

    • David Keightley says:

      Hey Craig, I am 61 and wish I were 42, but… I still do hard reps and keep fit without any battery power. I may be old school, but I think the work to get up the hills is worth the reduced number of reps and the increase in strength and cardio health… I would fear that as soon as I used something to get me up the hills the downhill trend would accelerate. If you can do it and your doc says your heart’s OK, it’s worth the sweat in my humble opinion.

  • MStewart says:

    Well said Craig, tired of listening to all the butt hurt anti ebikers. If you don’t like-em don’t buy em!

  • WalMart Rider says:

    e-Bikes blow chunks. Stay off our trails e-Bikers!

    Will these work with Grip-Shift?

    • Neil says:

      Togs are not ideal for Grip-Shift. If your grip-shift cable housing is small, like on the upper end SRAM, it might work for you. I know someone who runs Togs on the inside of his brakes with an XX1 GS. He cups the cable housing with his palm while using Togs. Works great for him. Togs offers money back if not satisfied for any reason.

  • vern says:

    RE the TOGS, I cannot ride without them now. Have them on all the rigs. For the flats, flows, climbs, and long hauls, they really work. My wrists are so much more comfy. Tried on a whim because I always put thumb up on climbs and flats…

  • Mike says:

    Would be helpful if they could keep their stock levels higher. Green, purple, blue, and yellow are out of stock.

    I’ve been riding and racing mountain bikes non-stop since 1990. The years of turning pedals in the hills have put me on top of the very first Manitou fork, ATAC stems, Anza bar ends, Cannondale HeadShocks, Triple rings down to single rings..etc. Of all my bikes throughout these ever changing years, my Pivot Trail 429 is by far my fave. I sold my Cannondale Scalpel team model in order to buy this amazing ride. I gained some weight for sure; but inherited a work of art that is so much fun to climb and descend on. I’m a loyal Pivot guy for many years to come.

  • Marty Arnwine says:

    I may have to sell a kidney for it, but damn that 10 year anniversary 5.5 is a sweet ride!
