I'll be riding mine too.  Haven't gotten out sine the leaves started to fall.  Has nothing to do with the bike.  If I had a convertible I wouldn't be riding in it top down either.

Alleged Sockpuppet!

I just rode mine down to the other end of town to pick up muh pickup.  Although the streets were packed snow this morning, they have mostly melted--I rode over 2 snow patches.  It had warmed up to 44 degrees, almost shorts weather.

Mechanics like to look at yer e-bike and ask questions.

The constant unanswerable question is  How Many Miles Do You Get Before Yer Battery Runs Out?  I patiently explain all the variables.

We discussed what it will take to ride to Conconully and back.  I plan to find out in warmer weather.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

It looks like Luna Cycle finally released the Apollo last week. Nice looking bike with a lofty price tag. Seems they are already sold out of the first batch.

I recently had our family bike (Surly Big Dummy) boosted with an e-assist from Bike Swift in SLU.  I got the Meridian rear hub drive.  It's been awesome getting around South Seattle with the kids.

Or stick to your budget.  When I hear payment plan I am reminded of this SNL skit:

Not sure if this has been mentioned in this thread, does anyone have recommendations for a good E-kit for an existing bike? I would like to install it onto my Trek 6000 mountain bike that I picked up at a yard sale for 20 bucks...all I had to buy was a seat post, that was like 20 bucks, lol.

I see that there are kits ranging from a couple of hundred to 1k...and some are rear wheel drive, some front. I definitely want a kit with a lithium ion battery and want to spend around $500.

You can have my kit e-bike for free.  Never finished building it.  Just taking up space in the garage.
