Yes - maybe they should be prescription only?
I suppose you could with the motor switched off, then it’s just a normal bike
Maybe we should all have a PIP assessment done and you can only ride one if your on high level for mobility
Well it works for mobility scooters.
Nope.....anybody can buy one if you have the cash
For me, it counts as cheating, unless the person is struggling with injury or unable to cycle properly in general. The modern person wants everything to be as easy and simple as possible as well, where as I see more benefits to cycling, rather than using an e-cycle.
What mobility scooter do you have?
i don't have one of those either....but my partner has mobility issues and with the right amount of cash they can be bought just like a you can buy a car......
to many assumptions being made here i think from some members
I don't see the issue, they're great for people who are getting older but want to continue to cycle, or people with injuries.
People who want to commute but have a little help when needed as well.
None of my business on a day to day basis- I'm happy if people are getting about on them. They're a pain in the arse when someone's up your backside on one at a trail centre though.
Pfffft! I really ought to grow up...
Who might be being cheated here, and out of what?
The price tends to be pretty high for the average cycling fan, so your bank account might feel cheated. Plus has it got the reliability features of a regular cycle? Added weight with the battery to, usually only good for between 20-40 miles, I think. I know you can manually cycle but for me, it isn't the same.
I got 48 out of mine with 2 bars out of 5 left........every bike can breakdown.
As for cheating the bank account....thats the stupidest comment i have ever read about having an ebike
That wasn't the context in which you wrote your original cheating comment. It's disingenuous to pretend you were referring to affordability.
