Scott Releases New 180mm Ransom eRide
@roma258: it is a workout, just not as much of a workout when compared to a regular bike. 40km on my local trails is about my limit on my trail bike, on the eeb i can ride over 70km. im still working out which is faster and its very close once the trails point down hill. still not sure which i prefer, but i do know that the eeb is getting ridden more.

Video & Photo Story: Claudio Caluori Rides 12 Hours & 13,500 Vertical Meters of eMTB
@Steventux: i didnt realise there are classes of enduro dirt bikes that are fully human powered that the petrol models are compared to. im not saying it isnt endurance, but in the world of cycling doubling or trebling your power input with a motor and writing it up as endurance feels a little disingenuous.

Video & Photo Story: Claudio Caluori Rides 12 Hours & 13,500 Vertical Meters of eMTB
@coletrane-mtb: actually there is an e-bike in the house so i am speaking from experience. relative to a normal bike its a walk in the park. the difference between a 500 and 700w battery is huge. we get around 120km out of a 500w on minimal assistance, but 120 miles out of a 700w. all this BS about 'its just as hard a workout'....like for like no it isnt. you cant compare different rides on different bikes as if they are the same thing. anyway, my objection is not e-bikes per se, as i said we have one at home and very much enjoy it, it is the marketing and outright misguidance around them. nobody is going to buy multiple batteries to do the same thing, and if you believe the emtb press they are all faster/better than any other genre of bike, i even saw one video of 'ebike is faster than a DH bike with the motor switched off'" its obviously just me but 'guy rode up a hill with the help of a motor and multiple batteries' doesnt really do it for me. however, 'new battery design allows guy to ride up hill multiple times' would be a better place to be coming from.

if you had tried one you would know that pedal assist can actually mean pretty much zero effort depending on the level of assist you program into the bike.

at 15mph the uphill would be pretty much zero effort so what this boils down to is 3 hours of riding trails down hill

what a surprise another video of someone riding a bike to music flicking up dirt in corners. i wish someone would produce something interesting, a bit of narrative, some actual words and discussion...i might actually learn something!!
