European Commission Announces Proposal For eMTBs to Require Third Party Insurance
@Skinnyman: The best way IMO to make e-bike riders more conscious is to make an obligatory test to confirm they're skills. Unfortunately not only e-bike riders but also quite a lot of others would need such a thing as they are dangerous mostly for others.

Opening Weekend Survey 2018: What People Are Riding at the Whistler Bike Park
Perhaps a bike like Voltage fr is considered a DH bike but comes stock with a 180 single crown.

@Skinnyman: And also I am only against the part involving e-bikes otherwise I support an obligatory insurance for cars, motorbikes but from this I don't know in what form do they want to implement this insurance.

@Skinnyman: I can't understand how could Bosch profit from their e-bike devision if this law is accepted as ebike sales would decrease because people would't want to pay extra. But just to clarify are you against this law or for it?

@Skinnyman: Who has profit out of it? Insurance companies besides various political reasons. Also that payout comes at a cost of an increased fee (when you have accumulated bonuses) so it's not a real benefit.

European Commission Announces Proposal For eMTBs to Require Third Party Insurance
@Skinnyman: I'm not ok with bikeparks lobbying against use in other areas I am against insurance groups taking a share in cycling without cycling having benefits of it. If an insurance group would lobby for legalisation of MTBs in general and would support EU or national organizations with developing trails, camps etc. I would be more ok with obligatory insurance because the money coming to them would also finance cycling. A bicycle manufacturer has a harder job at funding organizations because they already make bikes which are fundamental so they contribute to the sport itself. But if a company or companies force an obligatory form of payment for usage of any sort of a hobby or sport and doesn't give anything in return for that payment I understand as theft (taxes aren't far from this but you get healthcare in return, taxes fund things necessary for a country like highways...).

@Skinnyman: In a global view cycling industry is a small business compared to say automotive industry (it's actually smaller than BMW alone) or banks and insurance groups. I stand behind the MTB societies fighting for legalisation as in Slovenia we have problems with it but I'm not talking about lobbying inside the cycling industry itself but about lobbying from figures outside it like insurance groups who want their own share from cycling without spending any money investing in it. They have the power to pressure on the very "democratical" EU government and force them selves into biking with obligatory insurance.

@WAKIdesigns: I agree with you that many e-bike users don't know how to ride them safely and that some form of law should be made but this doesn't speak about licencing bikes or having to have some sort of licence to ride it only says that you'll require insurance. Insurance are under banks or insurance companies who don't care at all about human safety, eMTBs, normal MTBs or bicycles in general but only care about money. They smell money in bicycle industry where the average price is increasing every year. #fightforfreedom

The big bosses smell money in bicycle industry they don't care what eMTBs do or don't do neither they care for what MTBs do or don't do. They only care about how much money can they make.
