    EasyRider replied to a thread e-Bikes - Let's talk in Commuters
    I'm talking about ambiguity in practice, not in law, and there is plenty of it. Of course advocates would like to call a vehicle with pedals that...

    EasyRider replied to a thread e-Bikes - Let's talk in Commuters
    I forget, did we ever address the issue of electric motorcycles? The lines between "e-bike" "e-scooter" and "e-motorcycle" are going to be blurry;...

    I see your point, but I personally don't feel comfortable endorsing or encouraging the mindset that faster is safer. It's the opposite. As Vicegrip...

    lol The technology is really neat, I enjoyed learning about the sensors. It's a shame that to get people to buy e-bikes, companies have to...

    Yeah, that was my guesstimate -- in excess of 20mph. I mentioned this because I got the impression from NovaEBike's post that ebikes that can be...

    Who's up for a word problem? I've been trying to calculate the speed of the full throttle e-bike that passed me alongside the Pentagon Monday...

    I couldn't agree more. Lowering the speed limits or adding bike lanes to existing roads makes them safer for everyone. Widening MUPs by cutting down...

    EasyRider replied to a thread chain stuck in Maintenance
    Did it just fall off while you were riding in the smaller chainring -- like the chain climbed up the chainring and fell off? If that happened, I'd...

    Sorry to hear that this happened to you. I have the same commute. Why do you think the officer changed the citation? Something made him do it: his...

    I get the point, but I don't recognize a need to build parallel safe infrastructure for people who simply want to go fast. Those who want to go...

    I don't know that class 3 distinction is of great importance. Seems to me that speed limits are the real hangup for e-bike advocates, and 20mph...

    OK, then quote "plenty." No one does, but ascribing this position to the skeptical sure makes them sound unreasonable, doesn't it? Most comments I...

    I support more people on bikes. But if it takes turning a bicycle into a motorcycle to get people on "bikes," I have some reservations about turning...

    Who is it that you are responding to that called for a ban on e-bikes?

    I was using a figure of speech. Apologies. Let me put it differently. My best guesstimate is in 10 years, e-bikes will make up about half of the...

    Yep, that's the future. All of the big bike companies are betting big on e-bikes, and in 10 years, every other "bike" will be an e-bike.
