Electric bikes

During lunch break I stopped by Nordby, the bicycle specialist here in Kristiansand, and looked for an electric bike. The type they sold was sturdy and simple and of high quality, but it also cost NOK 20 000. That's a lot of money for a bike, even including sales tax. (About $3200.) Monarch is a well respected brand, but in this case I wonder if they are not taking their name too literally. I should probably have a "Peon" bike, if only there was one.

That said, it was cute and works right out of the shop. I may still buy it if my job has bike parking for peons. I mean, I already have a stationary bike at home so I can sweat without getting anywhere, so why not go places without sweating?
