That bit. Pulling boat to storage. 25 mph school zone, a milf on an e bike was slow at the light, but caught up and was in blind spot in 3 sec. Let her go ahead... Ummm.. traffic. LolDislike them on trails and don't agree with all the lobbying that's gone into having them classified as non-motorized to retain trail access. A lot of the available options on the lower end are just bicycle shaped objects.
For urban use, they're great. If I had a commute or a need for more of a grocery getter bike I'd consider one. As is, I prefer my real bikes and would rather get an electric motorcycle. A lot of the available options on the lower end for e-bikes are just bicycle shaped objects.
They also exist in a weird middle ground that probably makes them more dangerous. The motor assist lets riders go faster with less effort than they'd otherwise be able and that doesn't mix well with traffic for inattentive folks.
