There’s your answer. That’s about as simple as it gets. If you’ve finally made the decision to buy and ride an eBike you have no choice but to accept why you did:
- You’re lazy.
- You’re out of shape.
- You have a physical condition you cry about and use as an excuse.
- You’re a lazy commuter. Note; Commuting is almost the only excusable use of an eBike.
- You complain about your old age and geriatric condition.
I personally know people in their 80’s and others missing limbs who ride “analog” or “acoustic” bikes as the lazy hipsters no call them. And don’t you dare for a fucking second say anything about how you can now “go places and enjoy cycling” because you’re “pedaling just like they are” in reference to those who are tough and have strength. Ebikes are for the weak and therefore their riders must accept being labeled as weak. So when you’re called a Pansy Cranker or Sissy Spinner you simply say “Thank You” and ride along. You have no right to argue against your weakness and you will not be considered a real cyclist under any conditions. Most likely you can’t or won’t even be able to handle the bike under speed because you are not a conditioned or disciplined rider who got yourself to that speed. Motor+Pedals = Moped. Amazing some eBike riders will argue this. These are the ones who are physically and mentally challenged. Understand that real cyclists don’t hate your eBike. We hate their weak riders.
