Cam Visits Squamish - Photo Epic
more photos of fraz than cam. this article is nothing more than an extended ad for vw. plus some of the photos are out of focus. there were plenty of other pics so dont see why they were put in.

a reasonable argument and well put. im with you, theyre not e motos or going to ruin trails. they just open up mtb and the outside to more people. and that can only be a good thing. the more people on mtbs of any kind gives us a big voice when it come to access and rights.

@StackingItSince1991: what to stop someone on a mx bike riding the trail? my mate has a 4kw ebike, it looks completely different to a peddle assist bike. and to be honest you wouldnt want to ride it on mtb trials, it weighs a ton. another mate does have a peddle assist bike, as he was in an accident riding to work and now cant ride a conventional bike as has a shorter leg and minimal movement of his ankle. should be be banned from riding his bike cos some dick in a car ran him over? so as well as having a life changing disability he should also stop doing the thing he loves?

haha love some of these comments. thought it would be a hell storm of negative comments on here when i saw the vid on facebook. i do love how knee jerk everyone is towards ebikes. has anyone actually had any real issues caused by ebikes riding trails? do you all hate people who cant ride a normal mtb that much you think they should stay at home rather than get out on a their peddle assist bikes? if people who own land with trails on that done want ebikes on they can stop them, like they stop motorbikes. those that are a bit more open minded and realise they wont cause any issues will let them on. its not a hard thing to understand. oh and while we are talking about it, how many people who are bitching about ebikes on their trails, have ridden their bike where they shouldnt have. pretty sure most of you will have ridden a cheeky footpath or built a secret trail where you shouldnt really build. oh and those saying peddle assist are just like electric motos, maybe if you compare one of the ebikes with the ktm efreeride you might notice one or two differences lol.

@dfiler: yeah ive enjoyed it too, we will have to agree to disagree on this one. only the future knows what will happen. in the meantime fingers crossed there is some self regulation by the mtb industry, and that everyone gets to play out without falling out.

@dfiler: so you dont go faster than 20mph on your bike ever? ive done 40 on my bike and pretty sure 90% of ebikes cant do that. not sure what batteries you have seen but theres no hiding them in a frame for a bike with anything over 250w. well not if you want it to last more than 20min. youre also assuming everyone that buys an ebike is going to be an inconsiderate wanker and try to run everyone off the trails. its funny cos 25 years ago mtb riders had this problem with walkers, as they werent used to seeing bikes out on trail. you would think that having experienced the same hostility, the mtb community would be a little more open minded. oh if you want to tell martin ashton hes not allowed to ride a bike any more cos some people think ebikes are shit and should be banned then go ahead. personally i think its great that people with a love of biking can still get out on the trails after life changing accidents.

@dfiler: oh course they are starting to come into mx, but that is an electric mx bike, not a peddle assist mtb. the major factor in any electrically powered bike, mtb or car is the batteries. the bigger the motor the more batteries you will need. until they fully develop a compact battery, you will be able to tell the difference. if you ask me, anything with a throttle shouldnt be called and ebike, and shouldnt be ridden on any bike trails. i have no problem with people getting to the top of the hill quicker, but i wouldnt make that sacrifice as the downs wont be as much fun with all that weight. i really think most mtb riders will think the same. thats why people are happy to suffer the harder up hills on enduro bikes over xc bikes, to make the downs more fun. i think in reality the demand for ebikes will be minimal for most mtb riders. we dont ride for the up, we do it for the downs, or we would all be riding road bikes :)

@dfiler: i have met all sorts of people on trails, from dog walkers to people taking kids on balance bikes down black runs. i get what you mean about conflict but ebikes are not the problem. people are the problem. its illegal in the uk to ride a mx bike on mtb trails but that doesnt stop people. if someone is going to ride something inappropriate on a mtb trail then they will do it regardless of the law. its better to welcome the responsible riders and educate them on proper trail etiquette than ostracise them and create more conflict. its a bit like the issues we get with walkers and mtb in the uk on bridleways. some walkers think bikers shouldnt be allowed on them, cos some bikers ride like cocks and cause problems for the rest of us. they will walk down the middle of trails and not let bikers passed. ive even heard of people trying to knock bikers off using trekking poles. there will always be conflict around multi use trails, and the only solution is for everyone to use a bit of common sense and accept we are all out trying to have a bit of fun and enjoy the outside. be considerate and courteous to other trails users and if theyre being a dick, explain why what theyre doing is bad. be that on a ebike, normal bike, walking or running. if theyre being dangerous then let then know.
