 Brand New!! Next to the casual dentist stuff, we got everything for the dentist kids. Get yourself on an electric supported bike early and you will never ride something else! From the couch with the electric scooter to the e bike in the garage, from there to school to sit 6 hours, from there to the doctor to treat the diabetes... Maybe the pharmacy wants to invest in the Ebike industrie...

 Pathetic underperforming oversized members of humanity also want to play. They are unable to carry their own weight or keep up and need assistance. Let them ride their e toys with you and be nice! Can't we just share contact information and hugs and all get along.

 i own a pedal bike and an ebike. I ride almost everyday. All my rides include a minimum of 1,000 ft. Of pretty steep climbing and that's for just one lap. I use the ebike when I'm tired, time crunched or it's really hot. I feel like people aren't viewing ebikes as the very useful tools they can be.

 @Riwajc: it makes no difference what you put under your butt that you enjoy to me .It's just my opinion no one said you had to like it. I'm all about a throttle assist. Go BRAAP yourself bro. Just ride whatever you want have fun on it and ride it like it's stolen.

 @Riwajc: pedal pedal pedal e moped bro. Hope you can score you some good PRS on your e moped. Pat yourself on the back for it and tell yourself you're a really successful guy for riding trails on an e- moped. Make sure you enjoy yourself while you're doing it that's the key. Nothing but hugs there bro ;-)

 Finally! A $500/watt mod for my $2k drivetrain, and an ebike for my p.o.s. kid! Thanks bike industry!

 This briefing makes me very sad and happy at the same time. Sad because of how dumb so many of these things are; and happy because if the best innovations in the bike industry right now are fancy jockey wheels, moving dollies, and business casual riding shorts then all the bikes must already be pretty damn good.

 Lmao who would pay $520 USD for a pulley wheel lol That price is just outrageous!!! Your already paying a fortune for the wireless eagle drivetrain! Give your head a shake before you even think about buying them!!!

 Nobody will be pedalling a bike in 5yrs. Might as well convert the kids now.

 I get pissed when my kids grow out of their shoes. So me buying a kids ebike is not gonna happen.

 the only possible good reason i can see for a kid to have an e-bike is if daddy (yeah yeah, i know) doesn't have one and it enables said sprog to go for decent length rides with said daddy. just my two cents. two penneth. same ting..

 Bike box roller LOL. I've been packing my loaded longboard inside my bike box for years. Been doing this exact same thing except I get a bonus skateboard out of the deal instead of two sets of Wheels with straps to carry around my skateboard carries me around. It also has some slacked out geometry Flex deck super soft 78a retro big Zig high volume downhill tires that are tubeless ;-) and Enduro bearings.

 Yeah, its about time. Now kids can do extended rides with their hardcore parents. Its the great equalizer. Think about it. You're an avud mtb parent raising an avid mtb child. Weekend rides are shorter and slower than you'd lije because you chose family time over hammer time. Now you can get both. Hell kiddo can tow you out on tbe fire road.
  • 7 1
 @onemanarmy: A Towwhee strap accomplishes the longer ride part plus you get fitter too! It’s changed our family rides immensely! That and a Macride seat for the little guys.

 Peeps, chill. Get one for your kid and be happy. Now they can shuttle you back to the top so you don't need to pedal that hard. You don't want an e-bike for yourself. People would think you're lazy.
