    Same here. The big brands at least seem to be pedal assist only.

    Pivot Shuttle, Class 1 eMTB. Pedal assist. Awesome ride! 140mm rear with 160mm front, 27.5x2.8 tires. My rides went from 12-15 miles offroad to 25 mile range (some over 30). Push it hard and I get a better workout than on my regular mtb due to the length of ride. I live next to a gret MTB system with better than 100 miles of trail. I try to ride 3 times a week and split time between this eMTB, a Pivot Mach 6 and a fat bike for the snowy months. I wasn't pro eMTB until I rode a few on longer rides - My knees are getting worse with age and this has made riding more fun than ever. Ride whatever makes you happy!.. just get out and enjoy it.

    Will it take bigger tires?

    I really want a Fat tired e-bike. Like Specialized Turbo Levo Fat Comp(or whatever it is called).

    A bunch of off brand but they don't seem to be too performance focused.

    Our single track?
    I really liked the Turbo Levo Comp, and that thing with fat tires would be a riot.

    I think pedal assist e-bikes should be allowed on most trails, but not all of them. It just depends on the amount and type of traffic they have. Many one way mountain bike trails would be ideal for pedal assist bikes. As long as they kick in time and dollars on the trails, they should have a place to ride. I went for a ride with my brother-in-law, him on some pedal assisted Trek, and I was on a non assisted Jamis Portal, and I only had to wait a little bit for him over 30 miles of single track. He wouldn't have been able to do that ride in twice the time on a normal bike. When I had a chance to ride the Turbo Levo Comp, I soon found out how trail conflicts can happen. A fit person could go really fast on these things.

    I put this in the Bicycle thread, but should share here, too. My 1998 Rivendell LongLow, 65cm. Bought with an insurance settlement after getting doored (in the ribs) in Berkeley. Six-speed freewheel, and half-step triple up front. It basically rides itself, smooth and stable, I can leave it alone, hop on, and go for hundreds of miles... the most "modern" items are the mini V brakes and the interruptor levers. The rack in this picture was mounted for the four-day ride, in case we needed extra beer capacity. Its normal tour rack is a stout Nitto mount for my Ortleibs.

    My Buddy rides a Haibike Fat 6. When we are fat biking and have deep fresh snow he will bring it and push trail for us... it's a nice bike.
