Sam Pilgrim Signs with Haibike
@bosnianrider: hey, we're on the same boat, don't patronize me. It's pinkbike, and it's normal discussion thread, but I'm an adult and I like to discuss things like that, it should be obvious by then, it's got nothing to do with philosophy, its basic adult argument, pros and cons. If some like being a stupid kid just because you're surrounded by them, that's their choice. If you're browsing comments you probably noticed that in both sides there are more extreme arguments than others, but that doesn't mean one side has haters and other doesn't. I will say it again, Sam lives and breathes, gets sponsored because of his fans, so he has to deal with positive and negative opinions, that's reality he, me and you cant escape. He is no "ordinary" bloke and this "publicity" stunt will get him a decent reward. peace off, real mature. Oh well that sums it up.

@bosnianrider: your trying so hard to get all the clichet aligned, right? First the haters now it's the trigger thing... You know It doesn't trigger anything, is just misleading and negative, it portraits other opinions as dumb, raged by emotions and not arguments. And if you're interested you'll see there's plenty of good and valid arguments around. Read it again. "Be happy for ebikes the life would be miserable if there was nothing to hate... ---------- HATE Sam needs to feed his family and he probably got a good deal with Haibike so good for him. I wonder how many of the haters would reject a sponsorship deal with a fat check based on their principles" --------HATERS see?

"Be happy for ebikes the life would be miserable if there was nothing to hate... " "I wonder how many of the haters .." @bosnianrider: you use hate two times in your post to describe anyone who has a different opinion than yours on ebikes, read it again. Basically or I agree with you or I'm hater. That's the bottom line, you don't even consider that other views maybe valid, legit, worth considering, no, it's all about hate.

@randybadger: "You do care, you are putting way too much effort into getting angry about it." Says the guy who was replying to me that I had "not dealt with it" and I was "still banging on about it." hilarious

That's a "uber" flawed argument, first, having a different opinion/strong opinion doesn't mean HATE, and even if it means hate, anyone has the right to it as longs as it's harmless to others. I hate beans, see, do you mind? Second, "a family to feed" is a reason as valid as "I want money to spend on strip clubs", it's my money and as long as its legal, no one has anything to do with it, unless you're a public figure and you are hired because of what you represent. See the diference? Ah, and again, having opinions contrary to yours doesn't mean HATE, but even if it means, we live in a free society, and no one is forced to enjoy the same things. No all things are black or white, hate or love, good or bad.

@AaGro: same here, specially after all the "deal with it" comments he made on the last thread.

Sam Pilgrim on Haibike?
@sampilgrim: IMHO, first they are motorcycles - I don't care if the engine goes with a grip, a whistle, power of your mind or in this case a pedal, whatever you like, it has a motor. Deal with it. Ah and it's clearly hackable. So you only see the first incarnation of what "its fun cause because it's fast", but it will be a lot more. Next thing will be ditching the pedals "with a press of a button". Second, it opens all the possibilities of going up everything that usual only has one way, because you know, they're heavy AF and people want new challenges. Of course if theres more people on the trails, that don't get tired, pushing 20kg+ heavier bikes, skiding like you do on your video, what do you expect? And worse of all It kills the spirit of the sport, it kills the simple basic notion that got us here, human power, train, endurance, and reward. Now? Want more fun? BIG ENGINE, MORE WATTS, EXTRA BATTERY, man, just buy a ffs MX bike! Stop motorizing all the sports! The message that is sent to the new generations is shameful to say the least. And please spare me the lift thing, 98% (or more) of people who ride bikes never haver been near a lift. It's disgusting and it makes me really sad on what this great sport turned out.

Sam Pilgrim on Haibike?
"Eventually I hope they (ebike riders) grow large enough to develop their own subcuclture, separate themselves from cyclists and bicycles, form their own trail advocacy groups, develop their own trail networks, and maybe, just maybe, start their own websites so we do not have to see these abomonations here on pinkbike. " Exactly, eventually they will implode with all the MTB industry, taken over by the motorcycle brands and be just the poor parent of MX, "for those who cant but sure dream about it". If you put a motor in it, you destroy the core, if you destroy the core, there's no more sport, at least this one. It's sad. And every time someone says it's cool and I should try it first, I always remember all the sad examples of friends who said the same thing about a lot of stuff, legal, ilegal, good, bad, anyways, a terrible way to argue. "you should totally do it dud" yeah sure. And I do the exact thing, unfollow, unlike. They don't deserve my attention.
