3 MTB Adjacent Tech Trends From the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show
@WAKIdesigns: Because depending on where you live, there might be little motorbike trail access. Some states in the US have all but banned motorcycle trail riding. Others, (Idaho, Washington somewhat) embrace it. If you live in a state that is okay with it, you will likely log many more miles on a dirtbike over a mountain bike. That's why my primary hobby these days is the motorcycle. 50 miles up and down mountains in a day is no problem. This is also why, for the same price, I'd always take a Moto over a mtb; you get a LOT more for your money.

@wildedge586: Yes, if they are put on ebikes it won't matter that it's less range.

Confirmed: Cannondale's New Downhill Bike Has 2 Shocks
I'm listening to these guys talk and I'm not sure if either know what is going on. Do you really need a "factory mechanic" for a pedal bike anyway? I think the rider would be better off with a basic understanding of how suspension works and then tuning it themselves vs trying to describe a feeling on the bike to someone who isn't even riding it to tune it. Suspension isn't magic, it's a spring and a damper. Learn the basics and tune it yourself.

@ripcraft: So your gut tells you that you feel ebikes are not good because you can "shuttle anywhere you take them." That's supposed to be your argument for why they are bad and we should hate them. Copy.

UCI Threatens to Impose 'Disciplinary Measures' on Licensed Riders Who Compete in FIM eMTB Series
@silvbullit: destroy trail access based off of what? I ride bikes a lot of the same places I ride my motorcycle (in the US). No issues at all. "Earn" your "turns"... Why is everyone so obsessed with "earning it" since these things were invented? Why do I have to earn it? I don't earn it at a park or shuttling. If you want to do more laps get an ebike. Most climbing in the pnw is on fire roads so nothing technical there. And ebikes capable of clearing steeper more technical lines than a pedal bike, all else being equal. In reality, they make the climbing more enjoyable. There's a lot of ignorance surrounding ebikes and none of it is based on facts. I get land access issues but once regulators determine where they can and can't be what will it matter? The best trails aren't sanctioned to begin with, and I'm willing to bet most of the people who claim it will shut places down ride illegal trails. I've been reading the ebike hate on this site since the beginning and, if you're honest to yourself, you will see none of it is based on truth or objectivity. The fact is we ride bikes because it's fun. Ebikes allow you to ride much further in a given timeframe. They also fatigue you less so if you have the time, you can ride longer also. That's a fact. 99% of the hate is from people that don't own one. You wanna do 10k vert on your weekend ride without a car/lift, get an ebike. You wanna do 1/3rd of that, keep earning it.

@t-stoff: You're saying things that are false, thus a fallacy, whether or not it's an opinion. You can have flawed opinions. Ebikes are human powered. Your car example is not a synonym. Calling it The "wrong" sport, besides making no sense, implies the "right" sport is (I'm assuming) mtb... Why? Ebikes aren't racing against mtn bikes so what's your point? What "rules" are being changed? You haven't addressed any of my points.

@t-stoff: 1: ebikes are human powered. And it's called "ebiking,"which I already told you. Furthermore, why does what it's called matter? What difference does calling it something else make? Call it "not real mountain biking" if you want, doesn't change what it is. Semantics. 2: you're the one making the claim that the "quality" is better in some way. I'm telling you it isn't. Yes it's an opinion, but yours isn't based on experience thus it's an ignorant one. 3: why the "engine" has already been covered. You can cover 3x the ground in the same time with an assist, thus more stoke and progressing faster at the sport. 4: don't know what "rules" you were referring to in your original post, but it's called ebiking and it is becoming another sport hence UCI and FIM fighting over who "owns" it. Still have no idea what point you're trying to make here. Yeah everyone has their own opinion, but that doesn't mean opinions can't be based on ignorance and fallacies, which yours are.
