I'm seriously have seen ebikers climbing on tech trails and wide roads they both seem to be motoring along just fine.
I've also witnessed a couple who were easily over 65 blast up the last section of the climb on BLT before you hit the road at the switchback (pretty steep if you know it). They both laughed out loud (not out of breath at all) and then turned around and headed back the way they came.
Don't tell me they are hard work :)
And I'm not even against ebikers but you can wait on a tech climb for a good place to pass while I cough up a lung.
I 100% agree. That's why I always wait. I'm not in any hurry and its not like there is a medal waiting at the top!
I should have been more clear about technical climbing. I'm far less gassed, but I just meant that I clean more first pass on my regular bike than my eBike.
