    You (and others) seem to think that ebikes somehow mean people bike as fast as they can go all the time, regardless of context/safety. That's ridiculous. Most people don't do this on manual bikes,...

    Why force a huge detour on ebike riders? That's just going to push more people off of bikes and into cars (making the city less safe for people on bikes) or have more people ignore the law.
