Thank you so much Court and Ravi. I just really struggled between the Carbon, the Dash, and nothing at all. I love the idea of bike commuting, but I do love time with my family even more. I want an ebike for commuting, but if I can't make a big dent in the time it takes me to commute on my regular bike, then the purchase really isn't worth it. I REALLY liked the Dash. Mainly because that darn thing is fast!!! Sometimes I want to kick myself for not choosing the Dash. I say to myself, " Why did I pick a 36v 350 watt bike when I could have had a 48 volt 500 watt bike. For less money!!" I eventually chose the Carbon because I felt more comfortable buying an established bike, with interchangeable components, a proven track record, and many online resources about it. It also doesn't hurt that I live 5 minutes from the BH CA headquarters. I also got a great deal on the Carbon!! I am just hoping that the Carbon is fast enough to make it a practical and viable transportation option. I do realize though that there are other benefits to ebike commuting, even if it does take considerably longer than a car. The exercise alone is worth it for its health benefit and piece of mind. Also, I am far more likely to bike commute once I have an ebike. I can't thank everyone enough for the support. Most of my friends and family either have never heard of an ebike and/or think that I am crazy for getting one. I don't think I'm crazy or am I???
