It's The Final Randoms - Eurobike 2017
@JamesPBlaw: I absolutely agree on that, the whole comment wasn't directed at you, just the first part was what I disagree with. I've never ridden an ebike but I imagine that here isn't 1000w of power being directly imparted into the ground from the gate, even if it gets more powerful it can be compensated for in the pids. 1000w instantaneous is different than 1000w peak, the main damage a motorized bike is going to make, is going to be if it spins out a lot more. But anyway I actually have literally no bone in this fight and think ebikers should respect the laws and rules in place, and take the responsibility of doing the impact testing and getting everything approved. the mtb community has worked hard for access and selfish people(no matter what they ride) shouldn't be allowed to ruin it for others. But I will maintain that if ebikes are proven to cause no additional trail damage and are accepted under letter of law then antis need to suck it up and move on. I will end with I don't actually think ebikes have much merit, it's either meant as access for someone who wouldn't otherwise be able to participate. In which case they are stupid for using it as what do they do if it breaks down...or as a crutch for lack of fitness in which case you need to suck it up and work for it...I don't care if you are a weekend warrior or fat or whatever don't ride trails you can't handle. You can make life choices all week to get fit and stay fit...then once you are reap the reward of riding that trail...cycling is about suffering and loving it...OK I guess I do have small bone in the fight...

@JamesPBlaw: I disagree on your second to last statement no one earns the right to damage the trails, everyone should be equally responsible so that we all have continued access for now and future generations...well I guess unless you built the trail...on private property... I don't get ebikes never have never will. I want a light flickable bike, if people have a genuine access issue they are trying to overcome that's a bit different to me. But the responsible thing to do is impact analysis of ebikes. I'm sure there are studies going on as everyone bitches. If they don't actually impact the trail then people need to suck it up, if they do then ebikes need to be confined to unregulated trails and private land...how is this so difficult for all of you to comprehend? People who have the money to buy bikes should be smart and we'll reasoned...instead we have a bunch of biased nonsensical bickering not rooted in any logic...just to play devil's advocate here how the hell is an ebike a dirtbike, it's a heavier bike sure, but the main damage to trails from a dirtbike is the ridiculous power to the rear wheel and braking bumps. Does an evoke cause anymore rear wheel slippage than a normal bike? Braking bumps are a fact of life although a heavier bike may more negatively effect the trail. Now If the trail doesn't allow motorized access then until the letter of the law changes or the definition of the bike changes ebikes shouldn't necessarily be so bold as to just assume they can ride there...

2018 Fox 36 - First Ride
I should add for accuracy sake that the obsolescence of the 26" felt forced...but a stagnant market in a niche market is no good for anyone involved.
