I know there is a lot of e-bike hate by a lot of cyclists, but I have some friends in Chatt who run an e-bike shop. I've gotten to ride some, and I love it. I want one. There's no way I can keep up with Xavier on a mountain bike anymore, and I used to have to sandbag on the road with him, but now? No chance. I've thought about an e-bike for an 11 mile work commute as well; seems to be a fantastic way of going about things, but adds 1.5 hours minimum to the commute. Not in the budget to do it just yet, but it's a consideration at some point. RadPower usually has a "buy 2 get a discount" thing, if you knew anyone else wanting one. But, we barely had any snow this week, and eventually it'll be sunny and baseball will be played, so let's make it happen.
