Saying E-bikes are all the evil is just plain stupid. So is saying that they are perfectly harmless and people will use them responsibly. The idea that it's a great plot against MTB trail access is fkd up, so is the idea that there is no misinformation shared by E-bike makers. Yea 250W motor is perfectly cool on a mountain bike. Levo is awesome but European companies are already going for higher Wattage. The stuff that Dirt Mag does is great but even they go over the edge. E-bike with engine off faster on a downhill track than regular comparable bike? I mean what the hell is going on here… Will Loic Bruni be attaching a 7kg chunk of led under the BB of his S-works Demo?!
The obvious problem is that e-bike makers throw all these bikes into the same bag. Is Stealth Bomber with 5200W engine same as LEvo?That Stealth Bomber is just going full retard, the stupidity of that thing is beyond anything in bike world. Attaching bike parts to supe rpowerful engine at that price? Stealth Bomber costs the same as KTM E-SX, what kind of wanker would buy that if not the a-hole hoping for a pardon on using it on non-moto trails?! A piece of human brain crap, insecure both on MTB and on a moto.
Sorry Specialized, Trek, Cube, Haibaike - it's up to people like you to draw the border between 250W e-motor assisted mountain bike and pure belch of human retardation like Stealth Bomber.
