Have less than 150 miles on my latest e-Bike (SL to be specific), I might officially be done with anolog bikes. An e-Bike for me has been a game-changer and simply offers so much that I can't stop riding it. The only caveat is if all I rode were downhill or flat, flowy trails, then I'd probably keep both.

These ebikes are simply too versatile, IMO. Cool

It's not an "analog" bike, it's a bike. Just make that one clear.

Glad you're stoked on your new bike.

Damn right. I did have an amtb/analog/snail/peasant/retro/legacy bike (call it what you will) just in case my emtb was broken & in the shop, but I decided I would rather not ride at all rather than have to ride one of them again for the duration of the repair.
May get another dh bike at some point though, but old style pedal bikes? Nah, I'm over them.

You don't have to justify why you like Oreos in milk.

Life is short, and if you love to do something, then do it more, and surely don't seek approval from others.

Having already too many bikes in my home bike locker, there are ebikes in my collection.

My ebikes allow me to go further with the same workout.

Most of the time, my battery is only giving the motor 2-4A of power, and I do all the work well after 20 km/h

It's great for boring errands, like picking up auto parts, all of which is much faster than car

I thought the same thing for the first year I had my Levo. Then I re discovered my Ripmo, riding that on a regular basis has made me a better ebike rider - gives me more fitness to go further on epic ebike rides, is more “flickable” which helps with bike handling, and , well, sometimes an analog bike is just better to have on some trails.

I prefer the term "acoustic" but I'm old enough to remember MTV Unplugged too.
