I guess maybe but I havent seen anyone riding up anywhere - and that would be a violation....

Aside, Dark Crystal - whats the best (easiest) way to get to it?

They must’ve heard about C.Porter strapping lead weights to DH racers bikes.

Yes, it's hard work to say the least! Who knew? Gotta make sure minimal effort is the rule of thumb at all times.

I rode an ebike last night. 

It made the uphill slog liek a sea wall pedal. Attempting the up and over hike with a 56lbs bike was laughable

My neighbour has a Specialized Turbo Levo. Apparently it has a walk mode where there is some assist limited throttle to help walk that behemoth up difficult bits.

This is the laughable part. That's not easy enough for me. I want the bike to do more.

Agree. Id like it to steer too...do these things have manual and wheelie buttons yet? Id like to climb aboard one and then set all the strava records with automatic built in steeze....automatic whips and tables? That would be a nice feature as Ive never learned either....

I can almost get my head around ebikes for off road use but road I just don't get. I look forward to people hauling these things on their cars to do whatever it is that people who haul road bikes on their cars do when they get there.
