There isn’t that big of a difference. Yes e bike motors are super weak compared to most dirt bikes, but all of them can be modified to remove speed / power output restrictions. If it’s a power output thing, why can’t I ride my crf110 at the trail center, it’s quiet, slow, and I promise to pass people on the left? Once something...more

My animosity towards e-bikes has waned in the last few years, mostly because it's obvious they are here to stay whether I like it or not. But I have a legitimate question about their seemingly quick acceptance. Would other outdoor sports accept (electric) motors being introduced to their sport as widely as e-bikes? Would...more

There seems to be a pretty high correlation between use of "acoustic/analog bikes" and That Guy who shows up to group rides as the only ebike, or rides his ebike in areas where its specifically prohibited. Inventing new jargon for old things on top of already annoying behavior is like doubling down on the annoying.

Preach it brother! A non-motorized bike is just a bike. A motorized bike is an ebike, unless it's got footpegs and a twist throttle, in which case it's a moped.

"Acoustic Bikes"? Hard nope there. Can we all just agree that the nomenclature for a normal fully mechanical non-motor assisted bike is a bike and a e-bike is an e-bike.

Reviews like this reminds me of how good Butters was, his reviews were fun yet sincere. Please don't try to be like PB and trolling for the comment section. I guess Vital's trying a dif video format, but this is not it.

calling an mtb "acoustic" is what i'm referring, that has been causing a stir at PB also. Acoustic refers to auditory stuff, find it weird if you don't know that.

Of course, I rode the trek superfly just outside Genoa Italy and then I’ve done some riding on my local trails on a Levo. I thought both were fun to ride. They are both obviously motorized, it’s a different sport. And I think that is my point. It’s not mountain biking because of the motor.

There are some parallels in my...more

E bikes are bad for mountain biking. It’s a shame they are used on most of the same trails (for now). At least be honest and have a throttle on it — it’s an overpriced weak moto (and yes all these e bikes can be hacked to go ALOT faster) I can’t think of why a mtb website would review these other than $$$, vital you should be...more

I broadly OK on ebikes, though I get both the appeal and hesitation (or hatred) from others. What I really don't understand is e-bike racing. Who TF in their right mind would care in the least about e-bike racing? Sure, it's another category, but my level of interest is well off Elite Men and Women, then Juniors, and possibly on...more

I'd rather have a few goats than a moped.

Interesting, the fascination of e-bikes is so strong that you prefer to play with pets.
Thank goodness I don't have an e-mtb

"Integrated Storage" aside, it looks like a phenomenal bike at great price points. Kudos to GT for having their highest-end model top out at 6k.

We had to dig a bit as well to fully grasp this one. There is a shaped lip on the inside of that triangle that assists in holding the tube/strap combo. Not exactly SWAT. Perhaps more like integrated storage assistance...?

Unfortunately in some degree it has. Not speaking as a whole but in some more high visibility events and leagues it does. There are thousands of games going on and taking the knee, for example, has only marginally been adopted one some finals. Well if ... more »
