Related, IMBA has just updated their position on e-bikes. It now reads:

IMBA is supportive of Class 1 eMTB access to non-motorized trails when the responsible land management agency, in consultation with local mountain bikers, deem such eMTB access is appropriate and will not cause any loss of access to non-motorized bikes. IMBA recognizes that changes in design, technology and the numbers of eMTB users is evolving, and believes these bikes can be managed in a sustainable way for both the environment and other trail users.

“First and foremost, we advocate for access for traditional, non-motorized mountain bikes. IMBA does not advocate for access for eMTBs. But, IMBA and mountain bikers need to be at the table for all conversations that discuss access for eMTBs to non-motorized trails that are open to bikes,” said Dave Wiens, IMBA Executive Director.

“Currently, the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are clear that they are managing all eMTBs as motor vehicles. But for countless state, county, municipal and other parks and open space trails, there is much uncertainty and confusion. Our position reflects the importance of having local land managers and local mountain bikers involved in decisions to allow eMTB access to non-motorized trails and underscores the importance of maintaining access for traditional, non-motorized bicycles. This topic is being driven by rapidly evolving technology and we recognize that everyone involved needs to be engaged, prepared for challenges and solution-oriented.”

I agree. Having a rigid culture around how to have fun is clearly the best mode of operation. As a human powered suicide machine as well I know its culture that binds us. As it says in our Quran and Hadith routine clitorectomy, not riding e-bikes, and executing fags; this is our culture, and one to take pride in. I also fuck my cousin and have actually married and procreated with her in an attempt to preserve our superior culture.(there were only a couple flipper babies)
the difficult jihad of the climb is proof of your devotion and only then will you feel the glory of allah and true martyrdom during the the decent of the ride. might as well call the levo the infidel.

i fear the day one of out lost brethren hijacks an electric car to run through a crowd in france.
allahu akbar brother

Good question! Here's what Deity sent me:

M4 x 0.7P x 8mm and they are dual sided for an allen, so you can unthread them from the back in the event that the pin is damaged. They also come with pre-applied Loctite and include an extra set of pins for back ups!

Hey guys! Figured I would jump in on this one!

I will DEFINITELY be racing all of the World Cups, I wouldn't have come back if I couldn't! I think I will be able to bring a lot to the table even if I am not focusing 100% of my efforts on winning them.

As for the Asthma; Apparently I have Vocal Chord Dysfunction which has similar symptoms but doesn't respond to the same treatment. You would think all of these world class doctors would have caught it but I guess not haha. I'm not 100% cured or anything but it's definitely going better than before and I can at least ride my bike comfortably without dying
