I am a bicycle commuter with a Surly LHT. Its 23 miles RT, and I commute it at least 4 days a week. I do commute with cargo, about 30 pounds worth and I weigh 242. Been doing this for about 2 years, lose 30 pounds and an insulin pump.
The problem is that while at the office, I often need to go places and in Florida its damn hot and stay in my business-casual attire while doing it. So ideally, I would have a bike I could just commute on, turn ln the e-mode when needed, then turn off for the ride home. Is this possible or are e-bikes too heavy? I do this with the Surly now, or catch a ride with a colleagues.
