    Right now, as far as I can tell, the very wide semi consensus among bike advocates I know in Va is that before we do anything, we need the General Assembly to establish a classification like that in California, possibly even copying the Ca legislative language, which would enable localities to allow class 1 and 2 ebikes on trails, while banning class 3 ebikes.

    Is anyone here advocating for allowing class 3 ebikes on trails?

    ...Or think riding on the Custis @30mph is a great idea.

    Good question and one that the more vocal e-bike advocates do not seem to want to answer.

    I think we should mandate untrue wheels and badly adjusted brakes. That will keep you bastard speed demons in check.

    I think Gillian wants us nazi-anti-ebike folks to say it's because we hate fat people.

    OK, then quote "plenty." No one does, but ascribing this position to the skeptical sure makes them sound unreasonable, doesn't it?

    Most comments I see with an ounce of skepticism about the unalloyed good of e-bikes prefaces whatthey say with "I don't favor banning e-bikes." Me. Huskerdont. I can quote more if you want.

    You forgot how much that you hate women, the elderly and disabled people.
