Moab recently banned ebikes from all non motorized trails: http://www.vitalmtb.com/news/news/Moab-Bans-Electric-Bikes-on-Mountain-Bike-Trails,834

Hopefully other areas follow Moab's example and ban ebikes so there's no ambiguity.

Throttle isn't stated in the definition of a moped. It's a different take on a moped I'll give you that but it's still a moped by definition.

I read the article. Moped definition: a low power, light weight motorized bicycle.

So it's a moped?

Exactly. "Full Strava integration". Get f*cked, Specialized. Seriously.
Strava should honestly create a separate site or ranking feature when someone is riding one of these e-motos. Apples to apples.

"(if considered a motorized vehicle)"

Excuse me? Was there something I missed?

Cool and I'd love to own one BUT it's a motorized vehicle and with that in mind I'll stick to my CRF 450 on those trails for now.
It would be a sure fire way to get my local mtb trails shut down.

Kill it with Fire!


Seriously, how much less is this than a used CRF250?

It comes down to trail access. That's the crux of this issue. As soon as the Richie Richs that can afford this bike start tearing up our trails, spooking hikers and horse riders, and riding uphill into downhill traffic, the hard work we have done for trail...more

I'm glad you aren't seeing trail access issues where you live. I don't mean this as an insult but you are ignorant of the issues that exist in the US. Ebikes will exacerbate existing issues, and create new ones. This is something that shouldn't be taken...more

Why do people keep saying that the bike does not have a throttle? ?? The bike DOES have a Throttle, it's just foot activated. ..like a car... or riding lawnmower or go cart..exc!
Specialized really got in everyone's head with the pedal assisted terminology!
According to Specialized I could put a bike pedal in place of my trucks gas pedal and drive it on mountain bike trails..
Me: look officer I'm pushing a bike pedal!
Officer: Oh sorry I stopped you on this mountain bike trail you're free to go!

Uh, bringing in the non-argument of lift access is the real dumb issue here. Namely, lift access parks are either on private land, or private permitted land. They can allow whatever the hell they want on their terrain, including full blown 450 MX bikes if they...more
