Hello from DC

Howdy everyone,

New to the forums (fora?), but been riding for a bit. I did MTB as a kid, but now I'm mostly a singlespeed rider in the DC area. My commute is godawful, and due to distance and logistics I can't do a full bike commute. So, I picked up my first ebike (never thought I would) for the nine-to-five and keep me riding daily.

Welcome to Bike Forums! Absolutely nothing wrong with an e-Bike for commuting. If I had to ride to the same place every day, I would absolutely have assist on the bike.

Welcome to bike forums. At least the ebike keeps you riding.
