    Most fun I've had on the interwebs in a while. TGR at its best! At one point, I almost told you to take it to pugski, but that would have been hitting below the belt. I'm just glad I don't have to...

    Yeah, I got mine when I lived in Southampton (1987?), mostly just to work on smoother pedaling, then I got bored and figured I'd up the difficulty. TBH, Southampton winters are very mild, and I...

    A coherent, and relatively well composed endorsement; well done. You touched on most of the reasons I'm considering an ebike to continue riding into my 60's and hopefully 70's. I'm still doing...
