    I spotted four of them at Santiago Oaks yesterday. One was climbing the bottom part of Ridgeline, stalled out at the steep part by the jump rock, laid the bike down in the middle of the trail and just barely got it out of the way before a very nasty crash occurred with a descending rider.

    AWESOME!

    ...and by AWESOME I mean dreadful, shameful, horrible, disgusting and above all - disappointing.

    And, unfortunately expected and understandable, since that's what's selling. F- me (facepalm)

    As much as it pains me to say it ... that is one of the better looking eBikes I have seen.

    The battle is over though ... eBikes will be virtually indistinguishable from our bikes within 5 years.

    Major fail. Where's @doublewide? He's gotta go down to Temecula and shake some sense into Mr. Steber.

    Not as long as they weigh 50 lbs. They must be a handful in the air.

    However, when Elon Musk invents an electric motor that adds a mere 1 pound to your bike, well... game over.

    .
    ..... and the Gubment subsidizes the cost 99%.
    .

    Is it the motor or the battery the weighs the most?

    I figured a good shuttle program would let you drop off the battery at the top and grab a new one at the bottom.
