Felt Ninee 30 Headed For America?

While speaking to Jim Felt about his Lebowsk-e Fat Bike, we got the feeling that the Lebowsk-e was just the beginning of the e-bike offerings that Felt plans to make available to the American public. Well, we didn’t even have to resort to trolling the Deepnet to find these impressive photos and specs on the […]

Europe Gets Giant’s Talon And Full-E Electric Assist Offerings

There has not been any official announcement by Giant USA of plans to import their Talon E+ hardtail and their Full-E dual-suspension bikes and that is too bad.

The electric-powered mountain bike is not a totally new phenomenon. Mountain Bike Action reviewed the Denali electric bike back in 1999. Many riders pointed out, correctly, that with footpegs instead of pedals, the Denali was really a motorcycle that used mountain bike components. True electric mountain bikes have used “pedal-assist” designs, but have been so […]
