    Anyone riding one? I saw a guy riding one last weekend at Whiting Ranch.

    I'm not pro for full motorized bikes but pedal assisted for climbing e-bikes seems sweet for those that don't have time to train to climb 3000+ft gains and 8hr+ rides in a day. I'm talking about climbing up to Santiago Peak and bombing down Joplin kinda rides. I know all the hardcore guys will say they do it for the fitness and all but for those that don't have the fitness being able to do epic rides 50miles+ in 1 day seems like soon a thing in the past.

    One bike that really caught my attention I wouldn't mind having is the 2016 Specialized Turbo Levo FSR Expert 6Fattie

    That's one nice looking E-bike. I've recently changed my stance on e-bikes....I guess they are okay for trail use if the operator needs assistance. Not so sure if hard core Strava users would appreciate an e-biker stealing their KOM though. Haha.
