    For service Brosse has stepped it up this year. We've got Bulls and Orbea & Moustache that run Bosch & Brosse. Far more Bosch than Brosse in our shop, for all but the most nit picky sensitive people comparing the Bosch & Brosse is pointless, they're both awesome. I suspect just because of the volume of Bosch out there the support network will be better but maybe the smaller guy can move quicker.

    If I put on my nit picky hat, the Brosse is slightly more powerful, quieter and feels smoother. The Bosch feels slightly quicker to respond off (stop pedalling motor stops). That might make it nicer for more technical Rocky climbs. If I had to choose I'd just say yes.

    Ya, I got an Orbea Occam M10 non E, all I can say is wow. Only 140mm but faster up and down than my Reign. My only issue is pedal strikes, I've been thrown twice when my pedal stopped abruptly. Who would think 6mm lower BB would make that much difference.

    Nice, their whole line up looks great. Good proces too. I used to nail rocks when i fitst got my decoy. Ended up bending one crank arm. I have shorter cranks now but even before that i think i just got used to it. It did take a while. Now my mulletized meta 29 is even lower and the decoy feels high in comparison. Race to the bottom it seems. There was a time i really didnt think i would like it that low now im hesitant to raise them. Decoy has a higher setting i tgought id use but not so far, maybe this year on alpine excursions?
    Hopefully bike companies get back to demo days soon. Really want to try the different motors. I'm only familiar with shimano and one short ride on a yamaha/giant. Word on the street is rocky will have new bikes with a smallrr motor and bosch will have a motor and 750w battery with different voltage and theyll have an sl class motor as well. Milking my e8000 equipped decoy until the next gen is released i think

    Teh trg peer pressure is a thing eh? Dont be scared of a few ignorant Karens. Its just mt biking

    Race only springs progressive coil seems to work as advertised. Need more "testing". Canfield crampons were "needed"

    There is a lot of progression in the linkage of the YT, I am really surprised that you find the need for a progressive coil spring.

    Did you go with a lower initial rate and your regular second rate on the Race Only spring?

    No, i had a 350 on there and this is 375-430. The 350 was too light and im still not sure i need the progressive coil. It was great on a couple non steep rides. I'll give it a few days on the dh trails but it doesnt feel much stiffer off the top, just more mid stroke support. I have dvo spacers for it as well incase it ends up on my meta. Steeps should tell the tale. If i want more travel there ill soon find out

    So I ended up ordering an Aventon Pace 500 for the Mrs. I take delivery today.... I really wanted to buy a mid drive from a major brand, but itís hard to justify $4k for a townie... if she rides it a ton I can always upgrade to a nicer rig and sell the Aventon....

    My parents have been loving their Pace 500. It's tripled their bike time.

    It's hard not to recognize the value in the inexpensive hub drive options for a commuter/town bike.
    Common sense. So rare today in America it's almost like having a superpower.
