>>1128951>If we're addressing unavoidable climbs now, are we talking about commuting or riding for fitness?
I'm not talking about a specific situation, I'm just giving examples of where e-bikes might be beneficial. So, both.> If the former, what's the matter with walking for a portion of your commute?
Nothing, that's what I do. However it's slower. When I take my e-bike to work it'll get me up a hill in 30 seconds that takes me a few minutes to walk.>If we're talking about the latter, just avoid steep hills until you can climb them.
Again, if they can be avoided then that's cool. Also the unfit person may want to ride with fitter buddies and do the same climbs that they do.
