In some cases, I'm sure that the hikers or other riders I passed probably didn't even notice I was on an ebike.
All the fun and less work.
Disclaimer: this is not a rant against ebikes.
And also it seems like all the customers are baddies? Does that shrink to "A solid 90min ride is kinda doable" after 2, 3 years like with all other battery tech smartphones etc.
