    Agree.

    In Europe e-bike selling at ~1 to 1 with conventional bikes. In addition to the segments of the cycling fraternity, no vehicle license, no vehicle insurance, no vehicle MOT inspection, and no fueling making e-bikes attractive to the moped crowd.
    I am 100% convinced the internet and social media are not the salvation to human civility.

    That sounds snarky to me, maybe Iím reading you wrong? Traffic in last two times I saw one was going 50ish on state highways. These mopeds were being passed easily on the shoulders but they were not being blown by like a cyclist would be... Maybe my speed estimates are questionable, what do I know, I didnít hit them with a radar gun. But they were hauling. And they were not being used as a bicycle at all. Iím not anti e-bike, I just see this segment as where they will make the most money. Until recently I hadnít seen any... We have a lot of lower wage workers locally that you see riding bicycles, and these seem to be folks moving to mopeds. At least on the tiny sample I have been exposed to.
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.
