Really? I don't comment on articles I don't read… I read a glowing review of
the experience of riding the bike coupled with a wishy-washy "no black and
white" overview of potential access issues without actually putting any skin
in the game. No?
"everyone's first reaction… Is a huge smile"
"A misconception is that you aren't able to get any exercise on an e-bike but
that is garbage"
"I just went further and faster"
"works seamlessly and soon feels natural"
"… I could change direction easily, bunny hop over obstacles, corner
aggressively and attack steep sections"
"I only road it once with my buddies… Otherwise they were too damn slow and
there was no point in crushing them on the climb only to sit and wait twenty
minutes for them to arrive…"
Oh but wait… "a test does not an endorsement make." Really -- you don't read
this article as an endorsement?
"Mandatory climbs make trails less accessible… E-bike could easily knock off
twice as many laps… further burdening trail maintainers." BUT "only… if it
turns out these bikes become very popular, and that is anything but certain…
it could be bad."
What is certain is that the industry is going to try damn hard to make these
bikes popular through marketing budgets (advertising) and sending products out
for testing… if a review like this one sells one more E-Offroad bike and there
are access issues in the future, where do you stand?
