Pinkbike Poll - Would You Take a Free 250 Watts if No One Knew?
@Dangerous-Dan: This is a perfect post. I agree 100%. All the e-bike hate on Pink Bike is sooo absurd. Every cyclist I know and have ridden with over my 30 years of riding mountain bikes has always bragged about finding tech that makes them faster without working harder. I could not care less about someones desire to use some form of assist (e-bike, Eagle 12x, lift access, shuttling, Carbon bits, dropper, suspension, disk brakes etc...) as it has no impact of how I ride my own bikes. Mind your own damn business and ride what makes you get out more often. This poll was obviously meant to stir up the ever so boring "e-bikes are cheating" debate once again. And once again the Pink Bike "haters" have come out with the ever so predictable e-bike hate with the same old lame "cheating" arguments. Over it. I was at my local shop the other day and it was interesting to see how many people were browsing the "pedal assist" section with smiles on their faces. This category of rider and bike is coming quick folks. Like it or not.

The Tour de Fat: Exploring New Brunswick's Winter Trails - Destination Showcase
@m47h13u: Oh no - we wouldn't want to attract the "wrong crowd" to the outdoors!! Imagine, people who are new to our sport who want to get off the couch to get outside and have fun? Imagine the horror. Get off your high horse you elitist prick.... who cares about their tire pressure? How about you act like an ambassador to our sport and offer to help them out with some friendly info instead of acting like a dick. We were all new to the sport at one time.....

@Tim2: Can I ask you a question? I'm not trying to be a d*ck here at all - just curious. Have you ridden a class 1 e-MTB before? I own a few bikes and my newest is a Scott E-Genius. I got in a couple of quick trail rides before the snow came up here and noticed several things that speak to your points. 1. The grip from the low centre of gravity and the plus size tires was unreal. Places where I would spin out on climbs normally on a trail bike were cleaned easily without any rear wheel spin on the e-bike. The grip and traction coming out of corners was also like glue. Less spin outs = less trail damage any way you slice it. 2. My 250W Bosch equipped e-bike tops out at 25km/h and its heavier than my trail bike This means that I know for 100% certainty that I am slower on certain flats sections on my e-bike. I also noticed, due to the weight of the e-bike the DH sections are actually harder to ride aggressively. Its not easy to man handle the e-bike on the DH sections so PERSONALLY I am slower picking my way down. 3. I was faster on climbs (obviously) but as mentioned above, the amount of spinning out was zero. The bike climbs very smooth - and I leave it in the eco / trail mode. I'm not a "turbo" setting kind of guy. Before I bought the E-Genius I made sure to contact my local trail network associations to make sure use of the bike was ok. I was told by the associations that pedal assist e-bikes were allowed on trails with no issue as "they cause no more damage to trails than any other MTB" - that was a quote right form the trail association. So yes - there will always be naysayers but at the end of the day, its just another form of pedalling in my mind now that facts are coming to light.

@Tim2: Ok - I'll play... 1. The "speed and weight / e-bikes are heavier and go faster" point you raise. What if a 200 lbs rider is on a non assist bike (say about 30 lbs of bike weight) and is fearless so he is a super fast downhiller? Compare that to a guy on an e-bike who weighs only 150lbs and is a bit of a timid rider on the DH sections so is slower? Who does more damage? While I respect all your points, there just seems to be too many variables for your points to register with me. Heavy guy vs light guy, aggressive rider vs a more timid rider etc.... I disagree 100% that an e-bike goes faster on average. The ONLY part that an e-bike (class 1 pedalec) is faster is climbing. Granted. But on the flats and the DH sections, I am faster on my old trail bike than on my new e-bike (I ride both). Unlike the e-naysayers on this site, I actually ride both kinds of bikes and have enough years into this hobby to understand the differences. Please dont ask me how many years because I will feel very old and very bad about myself very quickly..... I also think that the naysayers are assuming the worst. E-bikers doing 3 times the laps, riding heavy bikes on trails in the rain, knocking over old ladies out hiking, skidding out of berms while kicking a puppy etc....its simply not the case in MY EXPERIENCE. The guys and gals that I know of that are on e-bikes are all guys like me. Ridden or raced for a hundred years, know trail etiquette, mid aged, lucky enough to have some disposable income and encountering ailments that make it tougher the hang in the group. No one in this demographic I out to piss anybody off. Listen - I get it.....the e-bike thing is not for everyone. But I value the research done by my local and provincial trail builders, supervisors and volunteers. I'll go with that. Your points were well written though and for sure point out that if you ride like a douche bag (no matter what bike you ride), trails are at risk.
