I find your attitude to be elitist and tiresome. Pedelecs or e-bikes have there own place as a form of cycling and transport - they are not moped/motorcycle substitutes.
Mmm ...yes they are ... Could I set a human powered bicycle speed record with an electric motor ?
Could I ride a ten mile TT using an electric motor.
I've never been call elitist before .... Thank you. working class lad done well ....
I think electric powered cycles are brilliant ... My wife has one and it gives her the ability to come out with me and the grand children. But it's not Cycling .... Sorry.
