Local journalists are of course not experts on cycling or on statistics

Super e-bikes are less than 2% of sales as I posted recently

You appear to be agreeing with Hercule and me :)

Re: More and more "accidents" with e-bikes (Germany)

I agree with Hercule,without proper stats and percentage use of e-bikes to bikes or whether and how that percentage is growing,not to mention whether the riders using e-bikes are new to cycling,new to e-bikes or if it's age related,the figures given are rather meaningless IMO.
Too many variables

Re: E-bikes,scooters and motorbkies

Lots of people buy e-bikes without really needing them One often observes them pedalling abnormally slowly, I mean using too high a gear :? The's a lot of stuff not needed but useful,dishwashers,TV's,mobile phones,etc. Better a not needed e-bike than a not needed over sized 4x4 and SUV or a car of ...

Don't get me onto that again!
I often idly do it of an evening.

I have this idea of buying a couple of cubes and giving them to friends and teaching how to do it.
Boring?
No worse than football methinks. :lol:
