“Ever bike? Now that's something that makes life worth living!...Oh, to just grip your handlebars and lay down to it, and go ripping and tearing through streets and road, over railroad tracks and bridges, threading crowds, avoiding collisions, at twenty miles or more an hour, and wondering all the time when you're going to smash up. Well, now, that's something! And then go home again after three hours of it...and then to think that tomorrow I can do it all over again!” ― Jack London

About half way up Kings Mountain road I realized Carol, who's 70+, was secretly racing me to the top of this winding trail. "Watch how fast I pass these young girls up ahead" she said with a crazed look on her face, as the girls blinked in bewilderment, grimacing with sweat dripping down their backs. "Its ok Im real slow going back down. Youll pass me for sure coming down the Mountain" she told them. This was for me supposed to be a leisurely ebike ride through the redwoods with some one old enough to be my mom, but the more we rode, the pieces came together with me realizing I'd lose this ebike race to Carol, who, it turns out used to race in all kinds of "atholons" and was a competitive swimmer in her prime and was on the gas today on the Eflow ebike I sold her a few weeks earlier. I took it easy and wanted to save battery. Not Carol. She was in high power and cruising having rode up here a week earlier. A bigger motor and a bigger competitive appetite meant me coming in second but having fun riding up the mountain with Carol.
For the record, I was riding a Haibike RX 29er electric Mountain Bike with a 350W motor. Carol was on her new EFLOW E3 Nitro with a 500W motor. Both our batteries held up equally. Carols bike definitely showed it's power on the steeper climbs
When we were invited by Salsa and Surly to ride bikes on mountains we thought we'd died and gone to heaven and in fact that turned to actually be the case. Being in the industry has its perks and this was one of them and we are absolutely stoked by the 2016 models coming from these 2 brands and will have them in our stores as they become available.
Ogden Utah is home to some abso-freakin-lutely fantastic MTB riding and SaddleCreek is just one of the heavenly spots to engage in this thrilling past time.
We rode every bike we could get our butts on and one of our favorites turned out to be this Surly Straggler Bike in "glitter dreams" purple . We rode this thing like a mountain bike hitting big river rock boulders by the dozens for long stretches.
I seriously expected a pinch flat or a bent rim out of the deal. The brakes took a beating on the downhill but over all this was a comfortable bike to ride when it wasn't too rocky.
That bike compared to the Spearfish was night and day of course. Big fat tires, a plush suspension perfectly tuned to our weight and height made this the ultimate full suspension bike to own in my view. Light weight carbon frame. Excellent looks. A perfect high end bike in all regards and we'll be showcasing this one in our store.
