As long as people aren't being completely dangerous (and/or) morons on e-bikes, I'm ok with it. They are wonderful for a segment of the population that wants to get out and get moving (either alone or with other cyclists) and I fully support that. I get the non-sweaty thing, too; even the super long commute (especially if it involves considerable elevation gain) thinking as well. For me, I'm not buying one. I like my bikes light and purely human-powered, even if the bike is much faster than my tired or out-of-shape or semi-injured/sore condition. I'll throw gears at it or wait until I feel better. If I was going to do anything electronic, it'd be electronic shifting.
