Sounds like the folks are turning into an "E-biker Gang" ...be watchful for the signs: black leather ,greased back hair...RayBans and chrome chains !
If I wasn't within walking distance of any store I need to go to ...an E bike would be something I'd really consider .
That's funny to see an ebike thread and a hybrid trailer thread surface at the same time. I've been trying to figure out how to get myself to work and back 21 miles away without getting too sweaty on one (there's a couple bike trails that could be utilized).
To that end I've recently been toying with the idea of putting 3 or so trolling batteries and a motor on a bike trailer.
