I wonder what the reaction is like when someone turns up on an ebike for a roadie group ride in the hills? I think the pedal mtbers abuse would pale in comparison..I still sit on the fence with ebikers. I ride with a few that are great people and cop the abuse with a smile. Seriously though, the abuse is very real and absolutely incessant. If an ebikers appears to have a chip on their shoulder it's probably because your the 473rd person to call them a cheater today.
