E-bike, M-bike, Ernest Hemingway, & Cranktank’s Impact Media Summit

Sunday 24th June 2018

HOST: Carlton Reid.

GUEST: Scott Montgomery, co-owner of CrankTank & CEO of Reynolds Cycling


Interview with industry veteran Scott Montgomery in Ketchum, Idaho, ahead of the CrankTank Media Summit with discussion of e-MTBs (electric mountain bikes) and m-MTBs (mechanical mountain bikes) and whether e-bikes will become the “normal” bicycle as mechanical bikes become niche. Also includes references to Ernest Hemingway, a long-time Ketchum resident.

    Regarding your use of the term m-bike as opposed to e-bike, I have taken to referring to them as POP-bikes, as in Pedal Only Power. I feel this exactly sums up their status.

    Love your show which I receive by podcast.

    On Twitter, the consensus was to call them just “bikes”. Of course, that’s now, but when/if more e-bikes get made than “POP bikes” then another term might become, er, POPular.
