Love/hate with the newish bike...truth be told, I am so scared of the bike. EVO City Wave Pro. Second attempt for an ebike after getting the Trek last September, and then selling off not 25 miles later. Same issues - 1) heavy - I need help getting it out of the basement. 2) heavy and bulky - I can’t easily transport it in the van, so I can only ride it from home. 3) can’t easily mount it from a stopped position. Was mocked by a stopped car when I was trying to cross a street. 4) Biking = anxiety. Will I crash and burn? Etc. (I don’t even want to express the rest of the dark thoughts.)

I want to sell it, or even give it away, so that Roger will stop asking me when I will ride the bike again.

Maybe it will be better at your new house where it can find a spot outside the basement, fewer lights?... Thinking about not being able to easily mount it from a stop, I'm wondering why. I tested a number of e- bikes and didn't have that problem. Are you at an uphill stop? Rhonda told me about a rental e-bike that was too big where she had to sort of hop on (that sounds scary to me). Anyway, hope you find a solution.
