#!markdown Full disclosure… I am a bike shop owner in the interior… my viewpoint needs to take into account customer demands as well as my own biases, therefore my eyes are wide open. The first time I tried an e-bike I was pretty impressed. Yes, they are heavy and somewhat ungainly at this point but I foresee a point where the differential between traditional mtbs and e-mtbs will be virtually indistinguishable. We need to be open to this future because its happening around us now. I am pushing 50 and have very little time to ride with work and life demands so any advantage that gives me more time on the trails and does not impact them negatively has to be seen as a positive.
