Amazing trip! Not too sure about that narration though...

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 79 - What's The Future of eMTBs?
@onemanarmy: my reasoning and solution to what problem? I don't get where you're coming from at all man... I simply pointed out what I thought was a false equivalency. Nothing more- no agenda. I'm not against ebikes for what it's worth and at some point I'll likely be riding one. I was just saying that they have the capability to ride more laps than a non-ebike and could possibly do more damage than an equivalent weight "normal" bike. Simply saying an ebike and a normal bike of the same weight are going to have equal effect isn't correct, it ignores the mechanical advantage an ebike has. You're just reading way to much into my comment and I feel like you're looking for an argument or something... you won't get it from me, I'm done commenting.

@onemanarmy: Nope... just pointing out that a 42 pound ebike and a 42 pound Stinky aren't necessarily equivalent when it comes to trail wear. Nothing more. I didn't make any comment on limitations on trails, rider weights, paid trails or anything else you mention so I'm not sure where that is all coming from.

@onemanarmy: the difference (in regards to trail wear) is the number of laps the guy on the 42 pound Stinky can physically do versus the guy on the 42 pound ebike.

@recon311: flat tires can be easily fixed like pretty much anything on “normal” bikes. And if not repairable, steel and aluminum are much more easily recycled than electronics and batteries. I often see 30 year old bikes still in use- often with newer parts on old frames. Do you think you’ll still see these early gen ebikes in use in 10 years?

My fear is that all these eBikes are soon going to be ewaste. I'm already seeing ads in the local online classifieds for ebikes for cheap- "needs electronic repairs", "battery needs replacement", etc.

I'm amazed SRAM are offering centerlock versions... wacky.
