Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
@euan91m: Please... PLEASE come to Denver and talk to JCOS and see what we mean. The USFS and open space regulatory agencies already see MTB'ers as unnecessary trail users. We already have to put up a fight just to be able to use the trails in the area, the last thing we need is MORE reasons for the other trail users to try and get us removed. Personal Accountability and Awareness is the most important metric here... The regular MTBer needs to be aware of his impact on his surroundings and regulations. The people buying AND SELLING the E-Bikes need to be aware of their impact and regulations regarding their available usage. @deadmeat25: Trail damage caused by heavier motorized vehicles. Want more? There are a LOT! @McNubbin: Bingo! I'm all about bringing new users into the sport, but you have to think.. "if they're not physically fit enough to get out here on their own, they better have enough friends with them to carry them AND their E-bike back to their car, when it fails" And it will fail. Have you EVER had a mechanical item that didn't fail at some point?

@steflund: By making them look like a regular MTB. 10 years ago, putting a motor and a battery on a bike was quite noticeable. Today, not so much. The new E-Bikes hide their electronics very well, some versions already available are completely hidden (hence why some roadies have been banned from competition for having said devices, even on their practice bikes). Hide the electronics well enough and you'll be able to "sneak" one of these onto a trail that has banned motorized vehicles. Use these sneaky, hidden electronics, motorized vehicles on trails where they are banned and the MTB group as a whole will start taking on a lot more flack from the other trail users. Make the E-Bikes indistinguishable from regular mountain bikes and watch as trail networks and systems start banning MTB altogether, simply because they can't tell a difference between motorized and non-motorized. We (as a MTB collective group) have a hard enough time representing our sport as it is...

Motor + Bike = MotorBike. Simple as that. Motorized vehicles are banned from most trails for many reasons, most of which I agree with. Blur the line between regular Mountain Bike and E-Mountain Bike enough and ALL MTB will be banned from the trails. Especially in a place like Denver where trail usage is so high between so many groups
