Its pretty clear you have not actually ridden an ebike JCL, so your comments are as usual for such fairly incorrect. If you use the mode that makes you Nino, your ride will be pretty short. I actually found it usually adds very little to distance, but is a more consistent workout due to man handling the bike more due to weight of bike, and fact your overall pace is higher meaning you must stay in it and not daydream even on the climbs. If its road climbs, well its still better than a shuttle rig, and would negate your complaint to access and degradationon. I would also argue that trail degradation on just trails is not much more either, Its rider skill that brakes hard, rips turns, and generally shralps a trail into need of repair. This can be done on any bike by a good rider, and I would argue better on a "regular" bike. Those "other" less skilled riders are gonna blow the tops off berms, ruin bench cuts, and round off drops irrelevant of what style bike they ride.

More people accessing trails may be a legitimate complaint, but honestly these new riders are only going to ride the "rowdiest" trails once. When they walk their 45-55lb E bike down the trail, they will not be interested in doing it again. "new" riders to the sport will be on green and blue trails, or cement paths after a couple "mtb rides"

Hey Beez177- I run this program at Kona and I can tell you that I don’t care if you have 10,000 followers or 10. Social media participation is not required whatsoever. I also don’t care if you’re a super hardcore rider or not. There are so many awesome people that can represent a brand that don’t need to be pro-level riders. We are looking for ambition, good attitudes, and people that want to work with us and other ambassadors to craft some unique projects and help lift up their local cycling communities.

It is in Bellingham, but we will have to keep this trail name and location off the interwebs. Come to town, stop by the HQ, drink a beer, and I bet you will get some beta on how to get to this flowy loam track we have tucked away.
