#!markdown First of all, Anonymous, if I can call you that, this is not a publication- wide article. My name is on this article and my thoughts are within so you are saying shame on me. We don't take the perspective that we all have to agree on a topic and it's not legislated by me. You are correct that this is a bike test, which is why I identified it as such. I'm not sure what your point there is. Second of all, we are not in the business of PR. We take reviews and journalism seriously, and there is no motivation for us to try and sell e-bikes. I wrote honestly about my experience on the bike and that is all. You can (anonymously!) suggest this is shameful - but I was well aware that this would be unpopular. This is much more likely to cost us traffic and advertisers than benefit us, but it's clear that these bikes are likely to become more popular and being informed about them makes it more likely we'll be able to come to some conclusions about how and where they should be used. Information is power while hysteria produces bad policy. The Ebola 'crisis' in the US is a great example of that.
