Been splitting my time between my Commencal E bike and my Pivot firebird 29 for the past 2 years and really with an open mind see no downside. The fitness level for both is the same I feel as you push hard on the E bike( yes you can moto uphill,) more effort the faster you go.. on...more

That is a genius idea....it would double their current internet traffic. Time to let go of the typewriter and get a laptop.

Wow. Yes, this will get downvoted but I find freedom to use this language more important than popularity. Counter culture is no longer "counter". Its the culture now.

Money indeed. Price, UT is a small little town that survives on tourism. It's great to see more people experiencing their local trail system due to ebikes. I have seen more trail systems get shut down due to wreckless mountain bikers than I have due to ebikes. As of trail damage goes, you can do way more trail damage when riding in the wrong conditions then you will ever do on an emtb in normal conditions.

All the sencarios you're talking about are the 1%, 99 percent of the people on ebikes are just out riding like everyone else. My opinion and perspective is not just one state, it concludes of 10 states in the Western Region of the US where I travel for work and ride when I can.

Times are changing, ebikes are not going anywhere.

It's better than seeing a kid on an ipad or cell phone. I recently picked up an ebike in the hope to drive my car less. I now ride to the trailhead each way 6 miles to non-motorized but legal to ebike trails . hard to complain there. Do agree that ebikes should be on legal trails only. The numbers are limited now for legal emtb trails but the numbers are growing thanks to people for bikes. I just lent the BLM a bike for a week and they were amazed. They did not have any complaints about the safety of ebikes and see it as an amazing opportunity to bring in more tourists to their outdoor community.

So ebikes on private property at a ski resort are fine, but ebikes on private property like a website are not? Slippery slope is a logical fallacy and most land managers who have allowed ebike trials have reported zero complaints. You're bizutching about nothing.

nice bike! Just curious why you didn't do a 38 instead of 36? especially since you went Coil and fairly burly build.

This makes me happy for all those mid-to-low-range mountain bikes! This range now has good suspension, good brakes, good wheels, good droppers and a good drivetrain. I hope the price of bikes are low to spread the fun.
