Henry’s Waffle House: Mountain Biking is Getting Too Easy
@Blackhat: I do have one health issue going on that contributes to my lack of stamina. I still ride almost daily, about half the time on my normal bike. I hated the climbs when I was 20, though, and in excellent shape. Since then I've gone to med school, done residency and fellowship, and work in a surgical subspecialty. I think I do pretty well overall on the normal bike, but the ebike makes climbing fun and flat Florida terrain more enjoyable between my trips. Not sure if my original post came off as "I'm out of shape and want an ebike so things are easy!" But that seems to be how it was taken. It wasn't how it was intended. I just enjoy my ebike as well as all of my other bikes. Two wheels plus nature equals fun.

Henry’s Waffle House: Mountain Biking is Getting Too Easy
@NWintheUSA: Probably. Never been great at climbing, not matter how much I tried. Still did and do it regularly, but hated every minute of it until the ebike. Now everywhere is a bike park, but without the bike park culture.

@JSTootell: mine is usually about 15 with my regular bike and 30 with my fun bike. You win.

I don't think I've ever understood how we, as a collective, will spend infinite sums of money to make climbing easier, make us exert less, make the bike more efficient but then choose adding pedal assist as the perversion of the sport. Comparing a 2022 high end MTB to a early 2000s MTB is about the same efficiency shift as comparing a 2022 high end MTB to a light eMTB. I own all of the above.

@lkubica: I ride both regular and ebikes. My rides end up being the same duration and I'm just as tired during each. I tend to have a lot more fun on the ebike rides, though, as I was able to either go faster and turn normal obstacles into jumps etc or do more downhill laps without my legs feeling like they will fall off. I'm 37, have been riding since I could walk. I exercise daily and have done many 30-50 mile mountain bike rides. At this point, no matter what I do the uphills just keep getting harder. Ebikes make it more fun again.

Like or hate ebikes, pretty shameful to express joy over misfortune of others like some of the top comments.

Video: Shredding the Italian Riviera on an eMTB
I haven't heard most people describe climbing hills as shredding, which is where ebikes help. The downhill riding, where ebikes are somewhat hindered compared to their traditional counterparts, is where the shredding occurs. Can people shred at a downhill park where they take a gondola to the top, or only if the forego the ride and climb?

Or, he can ride it on whatever type of mountain bike he enjoys as it causes no harm.

First Look: 2022 Orbea Rise Hydro - More Range at a Lower Cost
I have a Rise that I have modified quite a bit. If the H10 were out when I got mine I absolutely would have purchased it instead. For anyone considering, the rise, and presumably this variant, is an awesome bike.

It will, that is intrinsic to the motor. You get used to it.
