    MTBR...Why the pressure on Walt?

    Visited Walt's site today, only to find that MTBR wanted Walt to promote E-bikes. Walt did not go into details, and maybe my understanding of MTBR's position, is lacking, but why would MTBR ask/pressure someone to do something they didn't want to do? If Walt wanted to promote e-bikes, he would have already been doing so, as he was not, his response to the idea should have been a forgone assumption.

    Walt did not give the impression that he was given a do or die choice...

    On the surface, it smacks a little like political correctness.

    While I do not feel that the situation can be reversed...we should make clear to MTBR how we feel about our loss.

    Your thoughts?

    As for Walt, a great contributor (in here at least, i never visit any other sub-forum) who's input is missed, and this forum is definitely a worse place without him.

    It's been discussed in the linked thread.

    I'm not going here again, thread locked.
