I have seen very few Ebikes around my area and if I do it's gone before I get a chance to say HEY IS THAT A EBIKE!

1. They are core, and they value utility and nothing else.
2. They want to look core, because they want street cred.
3. They don't want their bikes ripped off, so they ugly them up.
But returning to Ebikes: NYC is swarming with them.
the other is on a tadpole trike, chain drive, and the first time I saw him cruising on the flats at an unrealistic speed I said, "Hey, is that thing motorized?"
He said no, so I replied, "Are you sure? Because there's no way you coasted that far while maintaining that speed."
He then admitted it, although he didn't like that he had been busted. Eventually he filled me in on the details, but I still wondered why he would lie at first.
Now I know. People will never get it unless they try it. No amount of talk will have a significant impact, but when they try it they immediately get it.
I'm no longer an E-vangelist because I live in America, and most Americans don't want to get it. They just want whatever is easiest, which is why we have such an obesity epidemic in this country.

But I was here way before them!
I built the trails too. I built one technical trail 4 other guys. I built another trail along with the bike club we had a long time ago. And I made all the signs for each trailhead when I was 15 and all the signs are still there.
I'll tell you who's cheating.
Them, for driving cars and taking on debt. They're cheating themselves into slavery.
