#!markdown Yeah…no. Look man, you're clearly passionate about this, but you have to look past yourself and at the many many people for whom this will be a huge help, and who would never be able to ride the trails that we enjoy, because they just don't have the capability. I know a guy who used to be a complete shredder when he was young, who no longer has the fitness to ride what he loves, simply because he can't make the climb. With his CUBE e-bike, he can. You also need to understand how we get these trails in the first place. It's not because we are all fucking sexy people and the whole world wants to watch our steezy moves on YouTube. It's by having users support the local trail association, and by having people with money and votes demand that they have access to trails. Most of the e-bike riders I know are older people with money, connections, and a desire to be on the trail. Our local city council and planning committee listen to these kinds of people. I don't know about you, but I want these people on my side when it comes time to vote whether this trail should allow bikes or not.
