    I'm fine with whatever amount someone spends on a bike. If you can justify spending a lot, and you want to spend a lot... do it. I have about $5000 invested in my commuter bike. I initially spent...

    I don't see many e-bikes where I live. I haven't ever met anyone that has a problem with them. 99% plus of the population has no idea what the regulations are concerning e-bikes. In this area, I...

    I see e-bikes like the specialized turbo that will go 20 mph with throttle only and 28 mph with assist. I'm fine with this. I see people on the MUP, bike lanes, and roads that can exceed those...

    That is "effectively" what it is in Washington also. However, Washington law seems to be silent concerning the 28 mph pedal assist.

    I like the 20 mph limit on MUP's (I would be fine with 15 mph... for all riders.) I think the 28 mph limit is fine for bike lanes and anything above 20 should be pedal assist only. If you are...

    In Washington State e-bikes cannot have a motor that is more than 1000 watts. The motor cannot propel the bicycle beyond 20 mph. I think the term that the regulations use are "electric-assisted...

    I'm a high cost commuter. I spent the $3K on disc brakes and an e-bike kit. I also have the fat waist, high blood pressure, and diabetes. I ride my bike to work nearly every work day... it still...

    I've never considered re-sale value on any bike or bike equipment that I have ever purchased. I've had my bionx for a year now and the only concern I've had was the battery replacement cost. I...

    Well, this thread went the way of all the other threads. It's all about how much you're saving. Not for me. I invest in my commute as a fun time. I have come to realize that I spend much more...

    I won't categorize myself as a fit or healthy person. I'm overweight, have diabetes, on blood pressure medication, and cholesterol medication. My bicycle commutes help, but I won't call them a...

    Yes, I do have upgraditis. I do it to make my commutes more enjoyable. I really love the e-bike for commuting. Yes my touring bike was functional but not nearly as fun as the e-bike. Once I did...

    Parking would cost me $600/year. I guess there is savings in that I don't have a 3rd car. As it is now, my daughter, who has been driving for a year, takes the car to school. However, I didn't...

    That's interesting. I can buy an OHM bicycle with a 500 watt bionx that will go 28mph here in Washington State. However, if I buy the 500 watt kit, it will only go up to 20mph assisted.
