David Pierce, I'm calling you out

Your review of electric bikes has cost me some serious $...

Bought a Stromer Sport almost a year ago after watching your review, I'd been considering an electric bike for some time and your review pushed me over the edge, I worked at a bike shop in college, am in my 50's and have a demanding job, no time to shower at work if I commute by bike, so I hadn't ridden bike in years. I found a used Stromer and have ridden the heck out of it, just cut a deal for 2 Stromer ST1's after a weekend in San Francisco when I rented a couple of Stromers for a day and got my girlfriend hooked, we burned through 3 batteries each in 24 hours, and zoomed all over the city, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Saucilito.

In all seriousness, thanks for the review, I'm considering going car free very soon...
