In september I will be a Teacher on Call and will have to get calls at 5:30 am to be at the school by 8:00. Currently, I am riding 18km to university each way. Sometimes, like today, I was too wiped to ride home so i put my bike on the front rack of the bus. I am seriously considering buying an electric conversion kit for my bike. It will give me a range of 48km and a top speed of 32km/ph. The whole unit weighs 36 lbs.

I know that riding longer distances will not always be fun. So the electric assist would be nice. And when i just want a regular bike i can just swap out the front wheel and take off the battery pack.
Am I just wimping out? Should i just ride normally, without the e assist or should i take pleasure in that extra power?
Thanks for your opinions
