Those who are already carfree today did so without an ebike. In fact, most of the country who are carfree don't even use a bicycle and it's highly unlikely they will spend over 1K on a motorized bike.

I was thinking about buying a DIY kit and build one up buy why spend the money? If I'm already carfree for close to 20 years, there's no need to waste money. I would like to see the e-bike create more carfree cyclists but people who are buying them are into mountain biking or commuting and are car dependent!
