 Hi COPMOBA Gang,

A recent article in an online publication came to my attention today, and it is pertinent to me personally from a couple of different directions.  The topic of the article is electric bikes, and their burgeoning identification with mountain bikes.  You may have noticed that electric-assist bikes as a segment have become prevalent over the past couple of years in the US market.  These have been much more prevalent in the European market for many years, where a more active commuter and citi-bike culture exists.  While the majority of electric-assist bikes are intended for pavement use, there is a portion of the market that is moving into off-road type of configurations.  It's these off-road electric-assist bikes that I believe may create significant issues for the mountain bike and trail communities as they (IF they) expand in numbers and availability, and begin to be found on our current trails.  I am concerned about two main issues -  the physical impact that these machines may have on trails, and probably more importantly, the planning and land use impacts of the association of electric-assisted bikes with the human powered mountain bike.
