    This is the hit that used to post to MTurk where you say yes/no to a super long list of sentences "did this happen"

    Anyone have experience with electric bikes? I'm considering getting one of these as the price seems quite good relative to what I've seen and reviews look pretty good. I don't have a car and was thinking about getting a bike, an e-bike sounds great to have the option to peddle or not

    I don't have experience, but that looks super cool. So you don't pedal?

    You can ride it like a normal bike or let the electronic motor do it for you. Since I'd be using it to get all over town when needed, I'd like to have the option.

    Only thing I'm worried about is people trying to steal it. And I don't know how long the batteries hold up.

    I used to ride a Honda Ruckus which is a beefed up scooter, but I'd rather have a nice bike. I always feel like a pest on a scooter.. I need either a motorcycle or a bike. With a bike you can ride on the bike routes in the city and keep out of the way. On a scooter, you're annoying everyone

    My husband used one kind of like that years ago. Look at the weight, because it will need to be pedaled on hills. The rain is an issue because of visibility for other drivers if you have to share the road. We have lots of bike lanes and wide sidewalks around here, so I see plenty of people using them.

    Thanks for the info! I hadn't thought about the weight

    I used to ride a BMX bike all over the city from the days as a child through my early 20s, and then somebody stole it. Haven't ridden at all since then. We don't have the greatest bike system here, but it is getting better

    Yeah I skip through all the rules like "this is what preponderance of evidence means" etc. I've taken so many of them that I can skip the pages that are just giving you directions.

    Just finished so not too bad. Ya the rules and what not imagine listening to them on a jury duty case in real life. It is boring and almost puts you to sleep.
