Electric cars and bikes and whatever vehicle you want to call electric are zero emissions right up to the part where there is a factory making the batteries and those are hardly zero emmission much less toxic free to the earth when their trash gets disposed of. Why the hell is that part always left out. What pollution is generated by where you get electricity from that charges that zero emission battery? Left that out too. OP gots jokes.....

Yes, ebikes are more exercise than sleeping or sitting on couch watching TV.....thanks for that stunning bit of info........I get exercise just reading these threads. Exercise in futility.

Weather happens......how long will those ebikes hold up in rainy conditions? what is charge loss percentage of batteries due to excessive cold and/or heat? Doubting even IP68 anything will last that long in adverse conditions....if ebikes are even that hi rated for wetness. Then there is the inconvenience of wearing waterproof or cold proof clothing to get you back and forth from work....and having a place at work to store all that and the bike. Doubting many will want to deal with that kind of travel hassle. Me on the other hand, will ride my actual human powered bikes thru rain snow heat cold dark mud.....especially mud....on purpose without any concern about staying clean or dry at all and it all has no negative effects on me or the bike. Will these ebikes last 30 years or more....doubt it. my regular ones have.

i can see where, in a perfect scenario, riding to work would be a very cool concept. bummer that reality and logistics crap all over that for the masses. you're trying to sell an impractical fantasy.......best case is work from home and go ride whenever you want for whatever reason or mission. that is a much more realistic sales pitch.
