I have to say, I’m not a big fan of the viewpoint that you hold on this. emtbs are motorized sure, but they are not a dirtbike. There’s a pretty big difference between the two, and it is not difficult to discern between them. Pedal assist bikes can be hugely beneficial, and for all the reasons that syngltrckmnd stated above.
And because he is in healthcare, you grant him a pass?
Are the elite mountain bikers of the world going to form a committee and determine that because someone is disabled, their noble career presses them for time, they are old etc. (out of shape and lazy is unacceptable) Who gets to decide that? I guess it should come down to your local trail systems to either allow them or ban them.
The two cons that I have observed:
Poor trail etiquette for emtb users(being a jerk, shouting at people to get out of their way while climbing, and so on)
And trail safety, for both the emtb rider, and others. The increase in climbing speed, and overall easily achievable higher speed in general,(granted it is possible to hit those same speeds on your standard trail bike), could quickly overwhelm some riders.

Overall, I am in favor of their use on mtb trails. Lack of skills, and bad etiquette, are not something I want somebody else having control over what I can choose to ride. That said, we are in an ongoing experiment on some of my local trails and we will see how things work out in real life.

@ bturman You mention in the video that the bike has the shorter offset 37mm fork, however on the website geo chart is shown as 44mm. Did you by chance have a 44 mm offset on your bike?

Agreed! I’ve been hoping for a 27.5 refresh, and for the terrain I ride, that would be amazing.

The mountain in the background was a hint but the color description gave it away. This is a Utah bike. #givemethatfrysauce
