Roody's call to the lurker got to me.
I submitted an application to a job that is about 30 miles away by roads. Thinking about the commute started making me nervous, especially after looking at cars for sale. Looking at motorcycles, and studded motorcycle tires (winter is inevitable) and thinking about moving.
Anyhow, I'd rather not move if I get the job (probably won't happen, but could) and though I'm sure I am capable of 60 round trip miles potentially five days a week, I am not at all happy at that prospect. Who knows, maybe I'd love doing that, can't say for sure until I try. Definitely don't want to buy a car, not too happy about getting a motorcycle either.
So I looked at some e-bikes. Purpose built ones seem too expensive, but maybe a conversion?
If I got the job I couldn't predict being able to charge the battery once I arrived. Is there a reasonably priced conversions that has 70 miles of range?
I could get by with 40 or 50 mile range if the conversion maintained a good pedaling bike, does an e bike conversion pedal well?
