E-Bike vs. Scooter vs. Normal bike

No.1360013 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I just moved to Seattle and will need some sort of transportation device other than a car. I am contemplating the following: regular bicycle, electric pedal-assist bicycle, or electric scooter.

Some pros/cons:

>electric scooter
harder to lock up. will probably get stolen. kinda dangerous

>regular bike
would be fine except there are a lot of hills here.

>e-bike
this would work the best but they are too heavy/bulky and cost way too much.

What should I do? My daily driver currently is a decatted 7.3 liter diesel van but the lefties in this state aren't going to let it pass emissions once its due for renewal.

What kinds of pedals do you guys like? Single sided? Double sided? Platform? Lots of float? No float? Anything you particularly hate? Fear?

Personally I hate straps and toe cages. I used them for years because I was too much of a pussy to try real pedals. Thinking back about all those wasted miles on substandard equipment is mildly upsetting.

hey everyone does anyone here have any bike touring tips for a beginner?

I am a road cyclist with optimum health I average about 50 miles for my own rides. But now I want to take an adventure ride for a couple of days. I'm most concerned with my lack of basic camping knowledge. How to pack light and must essentials I must bring with me other than shelter and water.

I want to pack light as I enjoy riding a lot of miles already, but I also want to enjoy the ride and not let it be about how many miles a day i do. I originally wanted to do NY to Pittsburgh which is about 500 miles, but I think that is a big task for a beginner.

So instead I want to tackle something like NY to Philly and then perhaps Philly to DC if i enjoy it.

Any fellow bikepacking or tour heads in here?

Solid Bike Tires for Heavy Dudes?

Im trying to set up a commuter bike WITHOUT inflatable inner tubes. Im going with at least a 27inch tire mountain bike but I have no idea if SOLID TIRES exist or where to get them. Im 260+lbs and dont want to deal with flats on commute. I don't care about weight as I'd rather be confident I can roll over shit like a tank no problemo
