As you guys know, I am over weight and I ride an ebike.
I was at a bike shop in the SE this morning. While the manager was looking up a few things for me, I was chatting with one of the bike mechanics.
He was looking at my ebike, and mentioned that they dont do electronics repairs. I was cheerful and mentione that I had a flat tire and wanted to inquire about a wheel build with the heaviest spokes they can source.
He mentioned that my ebike frame was a strange looking frame. I mentioned that it was a Schwinn but it was probably a Currie Bike from the USA. When I said that it was with a bit of a question in my voice....
He goes " I don't know anything about ebikes, I prefer to pedal my bikes " in a tone that was very condescending.
Geez guys! I used to own a harley davidson, and I never received that kind of attitude about my bike or my weight.
Can't we all be friends?
