For me its a trail access issue. In Montana we are fighting everyday to keep access to some amazing singletrack. The people and organizations that are fighting us use anything they can come up with against us. This is a easy one for them. Maybe if $100 of every ebike sale went help save...more

Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying STRAVA is a bad thing. But here in the states it’s common to hear people yelling “STRAVA” on the trails because slower riders or hikers ahead of them.

If you’ve never road and E bike 25+ miles on an MTB trail (test riding one in a parking lot a few hundred feet doesn’t count!) then your opinion is bullshit. You’re probably the same person that thinks they can be a lawyer/cop because they watched a few episodes of law and order. The elephant in the room is STRAVA. As mentioned the battle has always been between Hikers and mountain bikers. Before Strava MTB where respectful to hikers... now an MTB rider will run you over to get a better Strava time. Before E bikes hundreds of trails have been closed or a speed limit added because of Strava... but let’s blame ebikes it’s because its the new thing.

Having MS, I'm the perfect target for an Ebike salesman, but I've sworn against them because of the potential trail access issues for others associated with them.
