Not to mention some of you waccos() are riding around with 60+lbs of gear anyway. You could add 15lbs to my touring load and it would still come in solidly under 60lbs. So, even with a dead battery, not the end of the world. And as the OP mentioned(which Allen didnít feel like reading...), much of the world has electric these days. I think an ebike might fit right in for many who like to CC tour. As you naturally age or your career is your main focus and regular touring is no longer your preferred option, why not use the assistance of an ebike and CC tour? If they have a CC machine, thereís probably an outlet to plug the bike into.
