Counterpoint: Do We Really Need E-Bikes?
@brncr6: The issue isn't open access trails, it's closed trail centres, those places with the big red 'no motorised vehicle's' signs at the gate, up until now, the equation was simple, if petrol was involved, it was banned irregardless of engine size, simply because they're noisy, pollute the area, can be dangerously fast and scare wildlife, create ruts etc etc. Now all of a sudden we have the electric motor where you have ktm and other brand electric mx bikes that can keep up with a 250 mx bike and you have pedal-assist shopping bikes and everything in between, there's no guidelines or standards and therefore no way of differentiating between them. The concern here is that while pedal assisted bikes are harmless, electric mx bikes aren't, but you're gonna have idiots who can't tell the difference, a few people ripping it up on high powered electric mx bikes will firstly result in a ban of electric motors as well as petrol, then the misguided idiots on pedal assist bikes, that look identical to mtb's, will not adhere to this thinking they're excluded from the ban, then, as councils won't be able to tell the difference between mtb's and pedal assist bikes.... The eco warriors and dog walkers will have their way and councils will just ban bicycles of all kind outright. This is the scenario, someone dying or getting seriously hurt will be the catalyst, it will happen, it's just a matter of time. Thanks in advance to all the delusional idiots who use ebikes, it's literally like saying a rail gun isn't a weapon because it uses electricity instead of gunpowder, the argument for ebikes is that dumb!

Point: E-Bikes Are Good for the Sport
@WAKIdesigns: an ebike has a motor so by very definition it is a motorbike, this is not open to discussion, it is a fact. Another type of motorbike is a Kawasaki 450... Or a Hyabusa.... Doesn't change the fact an ebike is a motorbike, a really sh!t motorbike; it will never be a mountain bike! Marketers need to stop marketing them as such.

Counterpoint: Do We Really Need E-Bikes?
@RoboDuck: I'm very passionate about the subject, if you ride an ebike maybe you don't need to leave the planet, maybe just move to Fallujah

@MantisToboggan: if you can't rail that berm, keep practising, if you can't make that climb, keep practising, if you can't do the whole loop, allow for more time and keep practising... Modern first world lazy f@ckers just want the cheat code for everything, back in the day people actually tried to progress their skill and fitness as there was no other option , now people just make excuses and constantly interfere and dumb down trails, removing obstacles, roots, rocks etc and building berms in place of offcamber corners. The issue we face is indicative of a much larger social phenomenon whereby people no longer can cope... Get in debt... File bankruptcy.... Sign a contract.... Change your mind next minute... Trails too hard... Change them and rude an e-bike.... Unless you have a disability, you're a lazy over-privileged piece of scum for riding an e-bike and can f@ck right off the face of the planet!

@forkbrayker: with you this, the type of phone depends on the gps quality massively, Samsung's are worse than IPhones and Windows phones actually have awesome gps accuracy (shi7 everything else though). I've been riding with friends on 3 different types of phone all logging the same ride on strava, we all started and finished together and the disparity between speed, altitude and distance as well as segment times was laughable at best. Have never used strava since
