Recycling is the law. If done responsibly, the old broken E bike and all its components become re-cycled to a latest generation. I don't see them as a detriment to the environment. Please, now ...


That aside, and specifically to our old standard pedal bikes - mostly forgotten, sitting in sheds and garages could essentially be 're-cycled' usefully with a conversion kit.

Also consider the owner of their beloved familiar, comfortable bicycle yet now have physical effort issues to pedal. I know a few with simple hub motor conversions that love riding again.
