Re: The moment gas bikes because obsolete
I'm in the hobby because I like mechanical stuff. The more mechanical the better. I just got done building a Specialized frame with shift kit. I started it this morning for the first time right before work and I was all smiles. Just badass, to me of course. Battery powered reminds me too much of when I was a kid and my dad would flip the heck out because I forgot to charge his cordless drill, the wait for the thing to charge was torture.
I have a small electric scooter (URB-E) but I just use it to putz around the neighborhood.
But to each their own. A lot of folks like a Prius because it's efficient and quite and I drive a Diesel quad cab because it's big and loud
