There will surely be a day when I jump the shark and plow head first into the eMTB world. Wife will proceed me I presume (hopefully soon). Glad I hadn't jumped in right away though. The tech felt like earlier iPhones, with a serious case of upgrade-itis almost guaranteed. Still does, but it's getting better.

We did a medium/short ride with the eBoyz last weekend. I was on an Amish bike. I have to admit that the faster pace was rough and I was not good for much the following day.

I reckon that's what I dislike most about these bikes. The separation between acoustic and E. It's painful to keep up and those that are riding them have to think twice before considering a ride with acoustic riders who will anchor them on anything that's not gravity.

Despite the advantages, I'll remain a Luddite for now.

Oooh..ha ha!! Perfect description of how I feel on my acoustic rides with you. Which, by the way, I still very much enjoy despite the pain.

One of these days the Lord is going to front me a lightweight e-MTB. My patience and faith remains steady as a rock. Meanwhile, I know for sure I'll just keep on pedaling to enjoy some gravity.

Thinking back when I was a kid I wanted a Schwind Orange Krate or Lemon Peeler, but I ended up getting a Raleigh Chopper some how. I do remember we use to swap out the stock forks for super raked-out chrome plated ones, so we can be cool like Fonda & Hopper when riding around in a suburban town in LA what is now a total ghetto! Many bikes and decades have passed - Now is the time for E.
