Last time I was in socal, I couldn't believe how many people I saw on eBikes. I haven't really seen any around SLO though.

My fat friend rides one up and down the hill. Says "its to save time". Me and my other friend give him sh!t and remind him that if he dropped 30 Lbs. he could walk up just as fast as us. He's somewhat woke and says we're "fat shamers". He's right, we are but riding an E-bike if you're fit enough to walk is pure laziness.

I live in SF. It's getting hard to find people riding a non e-bike.

I would love to pick up the ones with the extra cargo bars in the back for kids seats, but I haven't found one in my price range.

Too many able bodied ebike riders on that hill. If you can't walk, don't surf.

When I got my MTB, a friend said don't even consider an ebike unless you're over 60.
Now on the trails, I get passed by them all the time, annoying as fvk. whatever though....
