What is the consensus on electric bikes for commuting? I'm asking because a friend of mine is trying to incorporate bikes as another option for her commuting. She inquired about electric bikes (a subject I know nothing about) . . . because she figures that it'll make the transition from car to bike easier. Her commute would be roughly 20 miles round trip, but take into consideration that she isn't exactly an athlete.
I'm trying to get her on a NON-electric "urban/hybrid" style bike, thinking that she will be able to build up to the distance, while having her car as an alternative while her condition improves.
Help me make another velo-commuter out of her.
