IMO the best bike commute on the west side is up/down the coast. You can spend half your commute (or more) on the beach trail with no worries about getting hit by a car. If you need to commute...

In the context of cycling sugar/simple carbs are not necessarily bad since you're burning off blood sugar during endurance exercise. It's much more of a problem for people with metabolic syndrome.

Burning gas to power an electric bike would make zero sense, since it's so inefficient, unless you're trying to extend the range. You can go 30 miles on a properly equipped e-bike at 28mph for about...

Compared to the $700 beater car I'd say a comparable e-bike would be a cheap fixie with a front hub motor and a throttle on it. It's not really fair to compare a mid-range e-bike to a beater car.

There's also the Rad Bikes Radwagon for $1600 but it's a hub motor so steep hills are not going to be its forte.

A tire boot is a good investment. A big enough slash will render all of the tubes and air in the world useless.

After using CO2 I would never go back to a mini pump. Way too much hassle.
