@d-man: @d-man: That's just primal consumerism. You just want to buy to be able to "enjoy". How can you be enjoying something you didn't earn ? There's no rewards without challenges. No reward = no enjoyment, it's just about spending money and consuming without efforts.

There's nothing green in e-bikes. An old 2 stroke MX bike is probably greener as it may be 10 year old or more and still ride well while an e-bike won't last more than a few years due to it's batteries (that we won't be able to recycle by the way...).

@skelldify: Plus they don't tell you about the lifecycle of an e-bike... You'll probably have to throw it away after a couple of years, when you won't be able to find spare batteries anymore... E-bike are just like any other electronics consumer goods...

@cuban-b: Carbon footprint with e-bikes (and probably anything "e-ish") is bullshit : destroying lands to get some metal to make batteries we can't recycle... There's nothing ecologic in there. For those who need shuttles, just think about it : an old Land Rover Defender that will last almost 70 years probably has a lower carbon footprint than a Specialized E-Bike you'll have to throw away after 2-3 years of usage because you won't be able to find compatible batteries...

If you don't wanna make a little effort, then don't ride bikes. You have to earn things a little. E-bikes make you go up a hill just like you would enter a supermaket. That sucks !

Magura provides manufacturers who make e-bike with parts, they're not gonna say it's bad. Specialized makes e-bikes, they're not gonna say it's bad. E-bikes are a way to go around the laws because the laws did not evolved fast enough, but all in all they're just like any other motorised vehicles. They don't belong on MTB trails. These are motorbikes, not mountain bikes period. But they're exactly what ├╝ber-consumers want : things to buy, things that make things easier, things that lower the bars : this will allow anybody to reach places you could before only access by doing a little effort. It's just like changing the mountains into an amusement park. Plus we allready pollute our planet with batteries we can't recycle (phones, laptops, tablets, whatever from our "mobile" generation) so why add more ? The world is always getting dumber. Thanks CG !
