You may wish to reconsider when your time comes …….
As @glasgowcyclist says...??
Maybe you meant you can see the attraction...?
maybe its best you go back and read my post on opinion.....i stated i accept people can have an opinion, what i dont accept is the judgement of others
judging others is not an opinion, its a condemnation of their choice.
hope this helps
Condemnation is simply a point on the spectrum of opinion.
again you refuse to accept my point..........judging others IS NOT an opinion
You've lost me now.
How do you stop judging others and be accepting?
Monitor your thoughts.Think about what you thinking about. I often go along thinking things about other people, judging them, and I don't even realize it. ...
Look for the positive. Judgments are negative. ...
Avoid stereotyping. ...
Stop judging yourself. ...
Focus on your own life. ...
Remember how it feels.
Judgmental is a negative word to describe someone who often rushes to judgment without reason. Judgmental types are not open-minded or easygoing.
You, when it comes to other people's rights to their opinions.
Reread this thread and if you're brave the helmet thread , it's endemic in the cycling commyunity
As i have already stated on numerous ocassions within this thread
I have NO problem with people having an opinion.....i am forthright and forceful with my own on quite a lot of things
But dont judge people on making a choice.....its tantamount to bullying, which leads on to other things.
If you cant accept that, then there in lies the problem....but its with you, not me
I think the confusion, at least mine, has arisen because you wrote:
... when those circumstances are exactly what *would* make electric bikes attractive.
Maybe you could clarify why you feel elderly, ill or infirm people wouldn't find an e-bike attractive.
I think it is great that e bikes are getting sedentary people off the sofas and out of their cars.
You are right.
I meant I don't see the attraction if you are not .....
My fault I missed " not "
You can go from A 2 B with hardly any effort...but you can on a normal bike too.
The less effort you put in on an ebike, the less you get out of it .
On my commute of 14 miles, I can take it really easy, and it will plod along at say 12 mph if I use a particularly low cadence. The minute I up the cadence...and effort, up goes the speed .
I can arrive fresh or sweaty, depends on the effort I put in....same as a normal bike.
I will arrive a lot fresher, but it's certainly not a free ride on an ebike.
