#!markdown Hmmm, I should try this brevity thing more often…I don't feel the need to add too much. When I wrote that your perspective was perhaps a bit too MTB centric, I see the justification that these things have evolved from the bikes we ride and because of that will be used in a similar fashion on the same trails etc. Stepping back though, there's a couple of things to consider. Ebikes will likely differentiate from MTB as we know it. And, while we may superficially trails to be 'ours' or the builder's, they're not. Fundamentally, even if someone is weak in constitution, they're free to do so. Really though, even for people with a normal range of abilities, I think choosing to ride an ebike could be based on something other than laziness.
