Perhaps do little more riding, more than 5 minutes

If you’re not getting a good workout your not pushing yourself. Now if you want to put it in boost and spin well yes it can be easy. Personally I prefer to leave it in eco so I do get a workout. What I really like is that I get Three laps of my local trails in a little more time than I can get one in on my little bike.

Think of how much a workout one could get if they left their e-bike in “OFF” mode! 🤔

E-bike-ist we were riding with earlier this week was complaining that he was getting cold from putting in no effort and was going to turn it off to work up a sweat. ¯\(ツ)/¯.

I think someone is yanking someone’s chain. Or Maybe  I’m just fat and lazy.

Then of course there is always the chance that I could tell you Donald Trump got elected into the White House and you wouldn’t believe that either.

Rode it up NQ, down executioner/Dreamweaver. Barely broke a sweat, but I guess that's just me.  Was if fun climbing with no effort? Sure.

TBH that sounds kind of boring. Turn a super challenging climb into nothing then haul a 50lb bike down some moderate gnar and a BCXC trail.

Thought the decending was like riding a really heavy unresponsive DH bike from 15 years ago. Also had to pedal on the descent in places I would never have to on my Enduro bike. Which was weird

I highly suspect in the near future, like Fox News, you haters will change your tune , delete your past comments , learn how to ride an Emtb properly, and become the Newbie you currently despise.

The future is here, don’t hesitate to buy one and go have some fun!

I’ve been pretty impressed with my Commencal. For such a heavy bike I’ve found it to be playful and haven’t found it hard to carry speed at all. Never had to throw extra pedal strokes in anywhere that I wouldn’t have to on my little bike. And the speed I’m able to carry through the corners is nothing short of impressive, all that weight around the bb lets you really lean it  over. Now that said when I ride my little bike it does feel different to be sure. Feels like I’m riding on a feather. No real difference than splitting rides between my Dh bike and my trail bike. After a few rides I didn’t even think about the extra weight.

I highly doubt I will do any of the things you suggest (other than having fun) any time soon. I already have a real bike that I enjoy riding, and I have no desire for a motor.
