Eventually I want to live in the city with the other "hipsters" and grow native fruit plants, (met some people at a little concert that do that, I've been doing it in my backyard at the moment) and have a lower paying artist job or vegan hippy sorta thing
Right now going the 17 mil distance at 20 mph would take me about an hour which would be fine (also might find a temporary place to stay next month that is closer), eventually I'd probably be in the city where things are closer and possible want to lug potted plants in the back on some sort of mini wagon or something, and having the bike fold up would be convenient.
I wouldn't mind spending like $500-700 dollars on a bike.
But I don't know anything about the cost though so those numbers might not be realistic.
I did some very brief looking and found the EVELO electric bicycle apparently can go 40 miles on a single charge don't know the price.
Since you show you location as being in 'newtopia' or some such thing, want to be an activist/hippie/stay off the radar/artist kind of guy I'd say an electric.
