    You think someone who can't ride a log roll is lugging a chainsaw up there without a moped?

    There are lightweight e-chainsaws that can be carried by people that aren't weak.

    Yeah, saw that today. Some impressive work. It didn't really affect my ride. I like the roller, but it's good to have options.

    But if you want to write an Angry Open Letter about something on that trail, it should be those damn Amish-bike kooks that cut out all the roots just above the janky bridge a few years ago. And leave out the word "dorky" unless you want to sound like Pee-Wee Herman.

    Btw, ironically, e-chainsaws were popular years before e-bikes (gateway drug?!).

    Nah, the first electric bike was 1895 and the first electric chainsaw was 1926.

    Lithium.whatever batteries were the Fentanyl for both e-bikes and e-chainsaws.

    Electric chainsaw that runs off the ebike, Specialized is partnering with Sthil on a trail building bike, has a weed walker too.

    Wait just a minute. You're telling me that e-bikes were here in ancient times, went dormant, then just recently re-emerged like locusts--or like those tripods in War of the Worlds? That's a lot to process.

    This sounds like a job for Space Force!

    Can we get the title of this thread changed please? Otherwise people looking for e-bike drama threads might miss it.

    I just want to know if you're supposed to use an even effort with the chainsaw or burst through the knots to cut faster.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    Steady effort with a short burst just as you crest the knot will yield the fastest cut.

    Without a Power meter report, I just call BS on this one. Maybe add a differential equation for good measure too if you can.

    All that fancy schmancy theoretical mumbo jumbo is no replacement for real world, “on the log” common sense experience.

    I wonder what his other user name is.....2 posts, both in here with the hate that many other members have.

    Who else hates e-bikes enough to scout out an internet forum with a particular instance in mind to complain about it. And chose an adequate sub-forum.

    Is the phrase “cut the log” a metaphor?

    A chainsaw has an FTP of about 1100 watts, weighs about 5-6 kg. With that ratio, assuming no mechanical resistance from a master link, it probably got up there on its own in about 43 seconds. And yeah, sanitizing trails (unless you're rightfully in charge of maintenance) sucks.

    To whoever sawed apart the log roll on goatsucker

    Oooh an ‘open letter’

    Came in here to subscribe for the fireworks.

    I know the trail now that I put two and two together. In fact, I saw the guy who did it. Young guy, about 30 in lumberjack gear, walked up from the bottom. He was with his girl as they were walking up to it. He had a bigass chainsaw

    That newly downed tree was massive and I thought he was going to notch it some more.

    He didn't sanitize it. He just added a vacation line. Nobody's really in charge of anything out there!

    The notch has been there since the rollover was put it. Somebody just finished it up. It has no effect on the rollover that is still there. I actually appreciate it because the rollover is a level of risk that I don't like to take on my solo rides. I think I would have preferred if he left a part of the tree at the bottom to ensure that the upper section doesn't slide down.

    No e-bike involved? Disappointed.

    Clearly the solution is to have a circular saw attachment/replacement for the rear wheel of an e-bike.
