    Totally agree, similarly cheap for me recently, super fast- and I'm printing papers to read almost constantly.

    You are not the target market for e-bikes in general. To conflate your own speed with what people are used to is faulty logic. To people not used to a bike 25kmh is fast, and more over, the handling dynamics and braking dynamics are complex at that speed, and more complex with instant 250W(+) power.
    Even some regular cyclists don't exceed 25kmh, and that speed- at least anecdotally from users in my household 'feels fast'.

    Its much more difficult to see or understand the lack of something you feel is second nature, as you take it for granted. Bike handling, positioning in traffic, and power/brake-control on 2 wheels is complex, and is not part of most peoples day-day.

    On a side note the video notes a paper suggesting increased similarities between MC and E-B pattern of injuries, and this across a set of other papers is disputed.

    We are, as I stated above, at an early time-point in data capture, and I suspect not caputuring (in the UK) E-B vs N-B crash statistics.

    But the stats say motorbiking is the most dangerous. By about 3x

    1. I'm not sure the stats are current enough or granular enough to fully know the accident rates for e-bikes with the surge in usage.
    2. The argument made goes- e-bikes are often ridden with minimal to no experience of that speed, often with minimal to no protective gear. This, given the predilection of drivers not to notice motorcycles, with increased usage, will lead to more accidents and more fatal accidents, as the skillset required to pilot something at that speed is lacking. The same argument can and is made wrt E-Scooters.

    Time will tell.
    Anecdotally I hired a Lime bike yesterday and was struck by a) how quick they are, and b) how odd the power curve is.

    Does anyone have any advice on Poop-eating. I love Dora, and she is truly fantastic, obedient and calm, but she keeps eating shit on the walks, and its both disgusting (because she's a lab and she loves to lick), and frankly concerning- namely she's going to pick something up.
    I'm hoping its a puppy thing, and she will come away from it, but only after having a labrador sized snack of shite.

    Just used Paisley, was fine- they'll deliver a box, and then pick up 24hrs later.
    Got there perfectly safe.
    Sendbike- in theory has a massive box which requires no bike disassembly, but the whole thing relies on how well you pack the thing.

    I'm normally fine, but so bad over the past few days I've taken repeated C19 tests.
    Fucking shite.

    Aren't they from Massachusetts?
    Good band, though, reminds me of childhood.
