Egads more E - saw a Geo Orbital wheel today

and wondered what the hell I was looking at: A person in my bike club was given a demo to play with. On any bike in 60 seconds and then you can E all over the place.

Regardless of one's opinion about E, the engineering is pretty edgy.

They forgot to have it swerve around a bunch of harvard-logo clad, earbud wearing rollerbladers walking their dogs on the Cambridge-side bike path.

Kidding aside, an e-bike is a godsend for people who really, really need it. Have an acquaintance who has a degenerative condition that precludes him from really being able to ride a bike with regularity (or normalcy). With an e-bike, he can hang with a group for casual riding. Total game-changer.

older couple in my club

both have some heart thing going on. they still get to enjoy a bunch of pedaling, being out in our beauty, and hanging with friends. What better?
