I'll chime in. I think they are silly, ok? My 10y/o son who saw a guy on a bicycle with a 2 stroke motor on the rear buzzing by us at a stoplight said "That's desperate". My wife also says I'm an elitist. I do admit that I am a bit of a purist. But then again I have thought that mopeds were kind of dumb even when I was young. To me, if you're going to go to all that trouble, then just make it 100% electric and call it a scooter. I personally hope to build something like that someday. But I won't call it a bicycle. It'll be a scooter.

But then again, to each his own. I've learned to just say to myself "Hey, at least they're on a bicycle." That is except for the guy with the noisy 2 stroke. Those put out more polution than my V8 Suburban probably does.
