Why hate on e-assist? For many Big Dummy riders, it's apparently the way to go. After hauling my rig up the Capitol Hill several times this week, I can empathize. I'm not going to make any conversion while my legs and lungs are still strong, but why the hate?When I rode City Bike Jordan's Stoke Monkey-equipped Big Dummy, I found the e-assist helped me to accelerate the rig into traffic much easier. It also helped up the hills of Adams Morgan.I can appreciate that it's not for you. It's probably not warranted on a smaller bike with a healthy rider. However, you don't know this rider's situation and/or background that led to this choice.
