I donít think youíll need to replace a whole lot of parts; the front wheel will probably need to be trued; a shop should be able to do that for a nominal fee. Having nice, true wheels will make it...

Not in a hurry, riding for fitness, you are right, an ebike probably isn't an ideal fit for you. If your needs change then an ebike might fit at that time.

I ride quite fast on my city's MUP, but slow down and announce when passing pedestrians and other cyclists. Also, I typically pick times to ride when the path isn't busy.

What's wrong with that?

Every once-in-a-while I'll have an issue, but usually I have an enjoyable, safe, ride.
