The sweet spot

Jeffrey the Barak cocks a thoughtful eye at the ebikes trend, surveying low-end transportation systems “From a One Foot Hop to E-Bikes” at the-vu, asserting that there is room for all of ’em (even if I resent having to post about e-scooters, simply because of a lack of other news in the two-wheels-and-a-handlebar world).

The sweetest reading for me, though, comes when he reveals his own favorite:

Personally I just have to look at a bike with a chain and gears and it spontaneously breaks and has to be carried to a repair shop. These diabolical chain and gear systems are one of the main reasons I love the simple yet inefficient kick scooter so much.

Read it all here … and do yourself a favor and bookmark the-vu while you’re at it.
