    1990 version probably $850 2018 version what? $12,000?. I worked at a Scott dealer in the early 1990’s they had that great carbon suspension fork until the recall when the carbon lowers separated from the alloy end caps. At the time it was the stiffest fork on the market.

    Looks so sick…I’m trying to get a job in Grass Valley working as a mental health coordinator and/or as an educator…articles like this just make me even more stoked at potentially living in the area one day, hopefully, soon.

    • JCWages says:

      Good luck with the job hunt! Lot’s of good trail options without too much of a drive. Nevada City is good for weekday rides, Downieville is 45min or so, Northstar/Tahoe is an hour, Auburn is 20min, Georgetown is 45min. I love living in the foothills (Grass Valley).

    I’ve recently bought my Son and I a pair Haibike All Mountain 5.0s. I’ve been riding MTB since 1989 non-stop. I have to say, Ebikes are an absolute blast. Me and my 14 year old son can go together without fitness being the usual barrier. I’m a fan no matter what the purists say. Everyone that has tried my bike has the same reaction…A huge smile and a audible “Whoa…I need to get one of these”!

    • Ted says:

      @”Scotch Henessey”
      Enjoy the ride. Just keep them off public trails (unless your goal is “no bikes on trails” for everyone).

      • Fred says:

        @ Scotch Henessey
        Don’t let Ted tell you what to do.
        Keep riding your ebike where you want.

        • Mark says:

          Yeah, damn the rules and the potential negative consequences. Who cares if others suffer as long as you get what you want. Let’s all be like Mrs. Fred. (Dont tell me what to do. ‘Merica) over here. Not!

          On a serious note…an E-bike race? Sounds like the type of event where they hand out participation trophies because everyone is special and we’re all winners. Lame

      • jason says:

        Ok…thanks for the advice. I ride my e bike all over Pisgah. No rangers give a crap. It’s not the e bike rider messing up trails. It’s the cool guy bro that doesn’t care about erosion, sedimentation or habitat.

  • Scotch Henessey says:

    I live in So Cal. More than enough trails to choose from. They go uphill approximately 4 MPH faster than my Pivot 429. And they descend identically. I’m still trying to figure out why people assume these bikes will destroy trails. Oh well..way better things to worry about in life.

  • m c says:

    ted , you are indeed a pill . in case you haven’t noticed the blm and fs thrive on your type of exclusivity. we ALL need to stick together on access. the e bikes are no threat to the resource . I’ve been riding non motorized since the 70s and i see no problems with battery / pedal assist vs motor only . theres a huge difference.

  • Rob says:

    For me the issue is not whether e-bikes cause more erosion or any of the other complaints. If it is stated that no motor vehicles are allowed then that means no motors. Arguing that it is an assist and doesn’t have a throttle doesn’t change the fact that it is a motor. Right or wrong that is the current law and a motor is a motor.
