mudguard: I'm all for ebikes for commuting (on mountainbike trails, well that's another discussion)
What's stopping you from continuing to pedal? Weather, the time, lack of showers etc? Or just sick of it?
You must be pretty fit if you've been doing that for awhile.
It's the shower thing... at work it's on the basement floor, there aren't enough of them, shared with the other office tenant. I just don't have time to be needing to get to the office and need a shower and a change of clothes. So need to be able to pedal only minimally to avoid getting sweaty.
