Seems like a bit off topic (but I agree with those that say, buy what your like, ride more .

But on this side topic:

For me, the ebike makes it practical to bike daily (winter, summer, meetings, shopping). Yes, it's slightly less of a workout ... but the time delta is enough to make it happen a *lot* more often; Indeed, I gave up my car entirely (about 19 months back).
