Anyone else riding one? I bought one a couple of months ago since I live at the top of a long steep hill and have bad knees. And, I love it. For the first time in many years my husband and I ride together. He is faster than me but I can catch up anytime. We go on adventures almost every weekend. I can get up any hill, albeit sometimes sweaty. But, I can also turn off the pedal assist and get some good exercise when I want. I'm driving to the town closest to my office & riding to work (bad roads make it impossible from my house). And, I'm looking for just about any excuse to ride now that the weather is so good. love that bike, best money I've spent on myself in a very long time.

    Jealous! I've been wanting one for years. It's hard to justify since my regular bike is still pretty new. Maybe when our second car dies, I'll get an ebike instead.

    it is hard to justify based on logical economics. Maybe you should sell your bike and replace it? I ride sooo much more than I used to. Almost all my errands on the weekends. Even to the grocery store. I can carry a gallon of milk back up the hill. I never tied that on my old bike, even when I was younger and fitter.

    But... I love my regular bike too. And they don't let you do triathlons on an ebike. ;)
