    Laziness. They have a bike, but too lazy to ride it. (most kids, young adults are too busy on electronics.) (others are too busy working. Keep the lights on) 


    It's a e-bike

    Meant to be pedal assist. But use just for motor. (loop hole in DMV LICENSE. bike cannot be gas powered or exceed 20mph or 750w) 

    gas power = license (motorcycle license if atleast 50cc)

    It's very common to see electric bikes, usually ridden by retirees that either aren't that fit or think their really cool!  You can usually still beat them uphill!

    You find a lot of bicycles for sale that seem never to have been pedaled. (Now they're being "peddled" lol)

  • electric like my old 500w Schwinn meridian.

    Well when it comes to my bike I can coast, pedal or use the gas engine to propell it. I don't even have to change gears; my bike changes 7 gears automatically.

    Several factors are involved when looking at this.  1) Rolling resistance: A smooth tread tire will roll faster on paved surfaces compared to a MTB tire with a knobby tread pattern.  Also a tire inflated properly will have less rolling resistance compared to a tire low on air.  

    2) Aerodynamics: A person on a road bike leaning over from the waist is in a much more "tucked-in" position vs. someone riding a beach cruiser sitting upright.  Anything above 10 mph or so & the person on the beach cruiser is fighting wind resistance.  

    3) Wheel bearings: A quality wheel will have quality bearings.  It'll spin more freely & longer.  An example of this would be several years ago as I was COASTING down a small hill & passed a guy still pedaling his el cheapo Walmart bike.  As I rolled past, I could hear him exclaim...WTF?!
