During a press event in Sedona, Arizona a panel of insiders and experts were brought together by Bosch, a maker of ebike systems, to discuss the development and use of electric mountain bikes. I was on hand and decided to film it to share with the wider community… everyone on the panel had decades of experience with traditional mountain bikes and had either ridden or sold ebikes so they had a unique and valid perspective. Some questions and concerns were brought up, along with solutions and thoughts on what the future might look like and how these bikes are actually being used, whether they impact the trail and present a safety hazard etc.

The official title of this panel was “The Hopes and Fears of EMTB’s” and participants included Pete Prebus of ElectricBikeReport.com, Hill Abell of Bicycle Sport Shop in Austin, TX, and Drew Rohde of The Loam Wolf.
