Is this some new rule on bike forums? I'd love to know. I've never once seen a thread where the OP "sets the limits of the discussion". Or maybe most people on the forum are simply able to handle...

Oh, I agree. E-bikes are definitely on the cutting edge of moped technology. Both on the [MO]tor side (electric!) and on the [PED]al side (you can actually pedal them!)

I understand that that the people who build and sell electric mopeds run away from the term "Moped" as fast as they can. It has lots of negative connotations that are a marketing person's worst...

Yes, it is very confusing that the one thing that is not like the others is called a "bike" by the marketing people. I wonder why they did that? I mean, there must be a technical term that more...

I wish I could have actually owned this in 1985, but what the heck, $200 at a garage sale 30 years later is almost as good.

I just had to replace the headset on my '89 Bianchi Nyala for the first time; I was a little irritated. I don't expect my bikes to last 20 years. I expect them to last FOREVER!
