Many of you have exceptional advice on how to whittle down on this decision making process. I need your help! I am completely smitten with the Townie Go 7D, the Blix Sol and (maybe) the Benno Ejoy. There is a considerable weight difference between the Townie and the Blix (is that bad?), the battery is also in a more stable place in the Blix and I see that the Ejoy is much more $$ than the others. I would love some suggestions on how to make a decision! Mostly will use it for errands, grocery runs, work - will probably allow my kids to use it (12 &14). I live in Seattle. It's hilly and rainy. Also, how do you secure Ebikes? Same as my road bike, a trusty old lock?
