I fall definitely into the "you've gotta earn it camp" and I'd rather eat my own hair than ride one of these mopeds. At best, I can see the point if you have an injury or disability that makes cycling difficult, at worst it'll put lazy c**ts out on the trails who...more

It only sounds dumb if you fail to properly comprehend what is being stated. Bikes with motors absolutely will threaten trail access. Period. It does not matter whether they are going up or down. Everyone here fully understands how they work so there is no...more

The beauty of not having electric assist- The higher you make your way into the trail system, the less gapers and people overall crowding the trails. Electric assist is a horrendous idea. If you're too lazy to pedal to the top, stick to the lifts. At least then we...more

Dirt Magazine goes out of print and now this? Jesus...

On a serious note, this is a bad idea for MTB. Are the stupid things fun? Of course they are... It'd also be fun to blast my KX450F up the local MTB trails... It's also fun to shuttle all of the local MTB trails...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 lightly.

I've recently been diagnosed with MS, so my climbing days are over. But I'll vow right now that I'll never buy a pedal assist or full motor powered "Bike" and ride it on a mountain bike legal trail. As many have said, we've worked way too long and hard to get...more

The number of people that are reacting positively to this article is disturbing. Where do you draw the line? This will threaten trail access in the US if it catches on and e-bikes are indistinguishable from normal bikes to the lay person. If I knew there would...more

Um it has a throttle. Its a foot activated throttle. Just like a car. Oh yea, and it has a motor. They look fun but they definitely not allowed on trails that do not allow motorized vehicles.

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

NO.

It is, by definition, a different "sport" when there is any sort of alternate power source. So please start a new site called VitalEbike and post these turds there.

This is a potentially damaging trend for trail access.
