Counterpoint: Do We Really Need E-Bikes?
@lake-st: can't, never was the most athletic, even at my fittest I'd be last one up the hill. But back then it didn't kill me either. If keep going I'll need knee replacements in a couple of years so I'm getting one.

@lake-st: no would need surgery and new knee joints. The more or harder I'd train the worse the condition will get. why don't you google arthritis and worn joints.

@slayerdegnar: just from yous over the pond, they have been accepted this side and in Europe, only them with their heads up their arse. Infact if anyone has one they get pestered to let everyone have a go.

@McNubbin: Thing is the new EU legal ebikes pedal just the same as a normal bike and most people will use it as such just using the assistance for the climbs. Unless you have tried one to see what and how they ride you don't really understand what they do. On any sort of descent the motor wont work as you'll be above its speed limit.

@McNubbin: I'll be able to roll back down the hill to my car. we don't have uplifts here so use motor to climb, hit trails on way down and repeat..

I think the word disability is being used wrongly. I have what is likely the start of arthritis in my knees. I am fit and wouldn't call myself disabled in any kind of way. I have already tested a few ebikes and will be getting one as currently my riding is being limited due to my knee pain. For normal healthy fit people there is totally no need for them. But for likes of myself starting to suffer or being limited by minor health issues that will stop me doing what I've been doing for some 40 years then I do see them offering a great help. Sport to me is racing, for those who are complaining its going to damage it, going out with mates for a ride is just fun and an ebike will let me keep doing that instead of giving up.
