time to flame this guy at will
Educate me...what is this thing hes riding? It has pedals, so its a different class of e-bike?
ebikes are limited to 750W max for all classes and this is somewhere around 20kW. Seems like the cranks are some way of saying this is an ebicycle but it doesn't look like they are even attempting to meet class restrictions.
You can tell by his response to your comment that he just doesn't know any better. I blame the manufacturer for not educating their customers on the legality of their product. They even sell a kit to make the bike "street legal" Don't get me wrong, the bike is cool and I would love to rip that thing around but the emoto industry is still finding its way and manufacturers trying to hide under the title of ebicycle is shady as shit.I commented on one of his videos, this rig should not be on bike trails.
There has not been anything in history that humans have not tried to soup up. Let's be honest though, how can you enforce this, especially if it is only one guy?Well this is one of the issues that the anti Ebike people were saying. It certainly looks likes it could be an Ebike, it has pedals. How are those involved with enforcement suppose to know the difference? I guess they all could to get educated. Maybe the state will set up classes for them. Could work out well for the entire mtn bike community.
