    Just a warning about Ebikes before you all settle down watching Rampage.
    I was foolish enough to buy one for about half the price of a new 29" carbon DH bike
    Absolutely hated riding mine pretty much all day and night yesterday.
    It was horrible climbing up all those many thousands of feet faster with less effort
    Absolutely horrid descending just as fast as my Carbon enduro bike.
    Still having the energy to go nightriding with a bunch of friends later absolutely sucked
    Especially the beer, blunts n homemade pizza from my mates new pizza oven.
    Managing to still ride the mile uphill home at 2am after 15 beers was truely awful too.

    Beer! it sucks!

    TL : DR Ebikes suck

    Ban them now before they ruin anyone elses day

    Blunts = win
    Tennents = No

    Sounds like you really struggling with the mode of transportation.

    E-bikes don't suck. People trying to sell e-bikes suck.

    Yes, and there are people that absolutely love riding road bikes... Doesn't matter. I don't like the sound e bikes make and I don't like road riding. Stop trying to justify your purchase to us.

    No one is trying to justify anything to you bro... Dry your panties. it's just a bit of harmless fun with a couple of other Monkeys.

    I kinda like road bikes, quiet and light and have pedals, nice as long as one stays away from the peloton loonies and their oddball social norms... mine happens to sport 646 pedals, and I ride it maybe once a year; last time I met a timber rattler crossing the road, which was nice.

    I like road bikes also, as long as they have at least 50*584c tires and I'm on dirt... With a flatbar... And suspension...

    But really why does it matter so much to you? You bring it up so often... Aren't there other forums where people who like things that requires batteries to get of high five each other?

    One of our really good spots where I'm from is probably going to be closed of for all bikes now because of e bikes that couldn't slow down and show some respect to hikers. Been riding there since early 90s. So today it really stings. Good that you really like your pedalec. Now can we talk more about road riding?

    Tennants is awesome, have no idea how they get so much beery flavour in to a 4%ABV beer.
    Has no lingering taste of nuts or fruit, it just tastes like a beer from the good ol' days before all the super hoppy shit became popular.

    I think e-bikes are perfectly suitable for the disabled. Considering his decrepit mental state and advanced age I think it is great that gary is still active. Perhaps he can convince the other ladies in his tea circle to join him.

    Nah, if I am forced to go to a hipster type bar I'll usually just drink black beer as it has the best chance at not tasting like someone has eaten and then vomited Fruit Loops in to my glass.

    Well, yes. Of course. I picked it up when collecting my NHS specs, hair piece and nice new teeth and brought it home on the bus using my free pass.
