riding with a motor wont make you fitter it just makes you faster. you cant ride with a motor in a race so why train with one.

    Why would anyone spend a large amount on a motor to train with. It'll be like mo Fara training with rollerskates.

    No place in racing or training for racing imo with the very small exception possibly of motor-pacing when you don't have a anyone to pace... but if you're a the point of needing motor-pacing in your training, you should have a willing volunteer available to you to use.

    I could see a place for them (and in fact have seen them already) for older/leisure riders who just want to get round some hilly roads or trails without needing huge fitness -- in other words, just go ride a bike without coming home shattered. Talk to me in 20 years and maybe I'll be one of those!

    I prefer to take spam fried in a light batter, perhaps with a little pickle.
    Cube Reaction GTC Pro 29 for the lumpy stuff
    Cannondale Synapse alloy with 'guards for the winter roads
    Fuji Altamira 2.7 for the summer roads
    Trek 830 Mountain Track frame turned into a gravel bike - for anywhere & everywhere
  • No interest, just happen to link to an ebike site in your posts... Yeah, right.

    Go away.

    Spammer. Not to mention what must be one of the most idiotic questions ever posed on these forums.
