I do too. But they're going to get more affordable. They allow inexperienced riders to go places that they probably shouldn't.I disagree that there are vastly more trail users because of ebikes.
I dont get this. It’s commonsense that someone could ride further assisted than they could unassisted."I can ride further in the same time!!" seems to be a very common protest from the 'not triggered' ebike crew. I'm yet to see a logical rationalization for this conclusion though. The distance that you can ride a pedal-powered bicycle, should be proportionate to your fitness, and the terrain, not the kilowatt hours on your lithium battery, ffs.
That’s where I think most ppl want it. Sub 18kg with enough for uphill assistance not uphill racing. The price is just way too high at the moment.Bigger tyres, stronger components, heavier bikes all just add up to some sort of sub-optimal moto that's going to destroy the trails and potentially get all bikes banned in certain places. I think the Levo SL approach is much better. Work on making ebikes more like normal bikes with just a bit of assistance so the less fit can keep up.
What don’t you get?Yes. It's just something I've seen multiple times in the last week or two. As a justification for the benefits of eMTB, I don't get it either.
Why do you deserve to wear out the trail 3 times faster than 'normal' people? Because you paid more for your bike?What don’t you get?
I reckon 80% of my time riding is spent going uphill. If I had an ebike rather than getting 2 downhill runs I could do 6 in the same time. Even though the bike would be heavier that would be a lot more fun riding for me and skills progression too.
Do you seriously think the trails "wear out" do you want people to ride less? Ride uphill for longer? 1 run only?Why do you deserve to wear out the trail 3 times faster than 'normal' people? Because you paid more for your bike?
Did you mistype?Do you seriously think the trails "wear out"
1; no(1)do you want people to ride less?
(2)Ride uphill for longer?
(3)1 run only?
Sorry I'm editing my post to add that I don't know why I have engaged here, the other 98% of the threads on this site are non emtb as has been stated a number of times the emtb section is not for emtb bashing.
I did quote you and I think it qualifies. You were responding to Mas2 and my points are a clear reference to his post.Did you mistype?
Do you have any more ridiculous questions? Maybe, if you think I've stated any of this twaddle, you should quote me. Include "bashing" please.
Never seen one wear out here yet, I've been riding my MTBs here for 30 years. They require maintenance sure, but you are clearly trolling by writing something likeAnd they ignore what I've previously stated. What Mas2 was replying to.
Do you really think that trails don't wear out?
