ok, here is the deal. I currently bought a nice road bike an ben putting in 60 miles a week. My work commute is about 38 miles round trip which equals about 200 miles a week just getting to an from work.
So my idea is to use my bike as much as possible, heck i am even thinking of selling my car an just having my wifes around.
Anyway, THE BAD part is that my knee is hurting me some an it appears to be getting worse. I understand that some guys are using electric bikes as a method of transportation or at least augmenting thier biking ?
So would it be better to spend an additional 600 on an kit an add it to 1 of my bikes. I really think that it is going to take me a considerable amout of time to be able to bike 200 miles a week plust weekend shopping or traveling.
So should I buy an electric kit to save my legs some ??? Are these just as bad on the environment as the Cars since they have throw away batteries ?
I mean I would like to go CAR lite but it appears that I live in a place where the drive is pretty far for some things. So maybe the electric kit would help maybe it wont ??
Thanks any info would be great ?
