Really? I was under the impression you had a gun up to your head. Not being forced to be here is totally surprising.aliahlewis wrote: I am here because I wanted to be here.
you know, I got my job driving a bicycle taxi to pay for my e-whateveryouwantocallit project and I've found that the job increased my lust for electric propulsion. because I can tell you one thing, after pulling literally tons of fatass red sox fans up and down ipswitch street all night the last thing I want to do is get on my regular bicycle and pedal five miles home. seriously, I probably do anywhere between 15 and 20 rides any given game night and thats a one and a half mile round trip on a 150lb bike and anywhere between 150 and 500lbs of passengers half of that round trip.PedalingBiped wrote:I like to bicycle to work but after 12 hrs on a graveyard shift the 7 miles back to home with a killer hill at the end didn't seem attractive to me.
Interesting, that's kinda what got me into eBikes. I work from home so i no longer have a commute. The primary use of one of my bicycles will be to basically explore the cities nearby, mostly at night... just to blow off some steam and have fun.Coen wrote:So i tought, "F*ck it", ill do something else, bought new tyres for my harley, ordered a ebike kit and wondered what the f*ck is going on.

Hell yeah. That's why i loved bikes in the first place. An electric motor just sweetens the deal and extends the freedom so much more. You can even ride stealth and nobody'd know..liveforphysics wrote:But even more than all that, the ability to use non-roads, like bike paths, trails, parks, etc.
