Hello all contributors and some who did not.
Whilst checking over the thread I noticed a button left bottom which stated remove. I tried it out. OOOps.
Sorry if you were enjoying it. I was too but now its gone.
Sorry again,
John
PS We could always start again?

It's hard to fit on a button, but can be done.  Looking for the one with the 2-pt font saying, "What was I thinking?"   ;)

Hi John,

You can't get rid of Ebikes that easily.

Thanks, I can quit looking for the remove button now that I learned it is worthless.

I think the remove button only appears for the user who started the topic.

How about doing so with a little game - where no one is allowed to repeat themselves (myself included of course :-[)
The last one went on and on, though there was nothing there that couldn't have been said in a single page, probably in a single post or even a single sentence.

Agreed. I gave up after page 2. It just went on and on and on and..........

So, what's the question?
Never drink and drive. You may hit a bump  and spill your drink

my take on the last post was that it was just a rant by john about how he despises everything ebike
no point in airing it again

So, what's the question?
It's a tougher question than you might think.
Ask - Is this pedalec a pushbike? And it's quite reasonable to answer - No, it has a motor and a battery
Ask - Is this pedalec a motorbike?  And it's equally reasonable to answer - No, you have to pedal and it's restricted by law (In some countries, including UK) to a similar speed to a pushbike.

So what is it? it is what it is, but in law it's treated the same as any other bicycle.  How any individual wants to treat it is up to them, it's just none of their business to be telling others how they should.

Hello,
My original post was simply to say that I did not think cycle shops should sell so called E-bikes!
As a personal opinion even though these things would be very useful as I suffer health issues , I despise the things.
If I ever want power I will return to a motorcycle.
Possibly a motorcycle with a smaller engine and frame than I originally rode (due to weight).
Thank you,
John
