Pinkbike Poll: Is It Still a Mountain Bike If It Has a Motor?
@KeithReeder: e-bike has a motor, therefore relevant when comparing to a motorbike which also has a motor. A mountain bike is motor-less. I don't need to watch the videos you posted because logic.

Pinkbike Poll: Is It Still a Mountain Bike If It Has a Motor?
My view regarding electric motor assisted mountain bikes is - why? Generally for me, mtb was always about fitness & fun. Carving up the tracks on weekends, smelling the fresh air, competing with your mates. With a motor to help your propulsion, your times around the track will be that much faster, where is the fun? Does it feel that good when you pass unassisted riders? Do you do it for the views? Go for a hike instead. Obviously you no longer compete against your pb times, so what attracts you to the e-bike? Speed? Why not go for a real off-road motorbike instead? 250cc 2 stroke powe KTM, honda, yamaha etc.. E-bike has no relevance in the world of mountain biking. If you need assistance on the trail, you shouldn't be riding the trail in the first place, or at least scout an easier trail & work your way up unassisted. I don't see how disabled riders benefit from e-bikes. They only assist, so one must still generate pedal power. An actual motorbike would be more fitting, you can go fully automatic too..

History and Deception - Opinion
Nothing against e-bikes as long as they are used for COMMUTING purposes only. We don't need electric anything on any dedicated road or trail bike, IMO. I've test rode bikes with electronic shifting & honestly I don't see reason to switch. If you believe it changes your whole dynamics on the bike, go for it, but if you do the same with an E-bike, you are altering the dynamics of mountain biking in general, which is not OK. Any seasoned mtb rider in any discipline will agree with me & that is why I think the future is safe in this regard, the oddball that rocks up to singletrack on an e-bike will be singled out & will eventually get the message.

First Ride: SRAM's 12-Speed Eagle Drivetrain
Am I the only one that would prefer an all blacked out eagle drivetrain over the gold?
