No one is paying me, and they are very fun...but so are my acoustic bikes.

I tell all my friends ebikes suck. They agree and think Im cool. I sent them this video and we all agree this does not look fun. Not fun at all. These are paid actors acting like they are having fun. A big conspiracy by mega bike corporations to sell you...more

Apparently everyone forgot to tell these two nobodies that ebikes are only for losers and old fat guys. Haha
Seriously though, I've said it before and I'll say it again:

RE: The Critics

Does electric shifting also count as "E" mtb? Additive energy to a part of the bicycle system formerly and purely rider powered. Minimally, but literally, adding energy to a system that has historically been purely rider energy...more

I guess now's not a good time to mention that a DVO kit may or may not be under development...

Yup, can confirm I get way more trail maintenance done with my E-bike: you get to ride so many more descents, so it isn't as frustrating "wasting" ride time on trail maintenance. And you can easily carry a bigger pack with more tools, further. These bikes are not just for lazy rich...more
