The GenZe Nearly New bikes are quite affordable.
The help on the hills is exactly what I'd like to have. Ideally, any assistance on the flat would be just enough to overcome the extra weight and mechanical friction imposed by the drivetrain.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
