Opinion: A Secret Trail and an Argument Against E-Bikes
Agree that e-bikes are basically e-Motos and shouldn't be used on MTB trail systems. It's just going to cause major problems to advocacy groups and local trail building organizations. Then again the same can be said about illegal trail building. In which case your 'Gen-1' people are just as big as a pain as 'Gen-3' (Since we are pigeonholing people into gens). It's not fun having to explain to the park service why your MTB club can't regulate it's own area because someone decided they needed to cut improper trail. Also, don't interp what I'm saying as "secret trails are bad". All I'm saying is that all illegal trails cause headaches for anyone interested in building legal trails, secret or not.

mnorris122 not surprising, caffeine is a diuretic. RedBull I don't think has ever claimed that it will re-hydrate the body. So yeah, makes sense if you're going to be roasting in a can all day.

More on PH levels, your insane amounts for energy drinks (3-4) is also in the same realm of coffee, wine, tea, and some cheeses. So not so "insane" as one would think, don't read into the hyperbole.

@dualsuspensiondave: Sure when in very large amounts artificial sweeteners like saccharine can be harmful. But not so with glucose/fructose which act like sugar to the body. Now the vitamins you speak of don't do anything if you go by some current research. That study looked at the benefit of dietary vitamins and found no perceivable benefit or harm. They just don't do much over the long term. Unless you give large acute amounts like the 5'Hour energy branded stuff which can cause a thiamin flush I believe. Further, the only in depth studies that have shown anything to be harmful is caffeine in large amounts. We're talking large amounts, like drinking 4-5 BFG cans of monster. I can start to bring the internet's worth of knowledge with links if you would like. Also, as for PH level please don't go quoting the EPA on PH levels and drinking water, even they say the 6.5 - 8.5 numbers are "aesthetic" as in only effect taste, until you go caustic anyway.

You know drinking too much water can kill you too right? The only real danger to be cited by any real study, not just some random internet articles, is the caffeine levels of some energy drinks. Read 'some', RedBull has less caffeine than a cup of strong coffee. Even Cliff makes a shot that has 100mg of the stuff in it. There have been a number of studies that show how caffeine can aid recovery and performance at that 100mg level. I believe @tobiusmaximum's angst against this stuff stems from the over consumption of caffeine and the affect that can have on a younger person with a bit of questionable advertising thrown in. To which I agree, but an energy drink isn't necessarily "poison" and it also isn't necessarily unhealthy when consumed at a responsible level as with any other caffeine based product. As for the advertising practices, yeah they were pushing the boundaries there for a bit, but even then they were never "targeting" children specifically. At least in the states they aren't allowed to by law. A carry over from the days when cereal manufacturers were targeting children using sugar. Outside from that, how a child would get there hands on a huge amount of the stuff without a parent stepping in is beyond me. Because it would take a rather large acute amount for caffeine to do any amount of damage.
