Most people in America overlook the practical utility of bicycles. I need to sell all of mine and keep my Fisher. I have a commercial work stand and the tools needed to DIY. I never took it to the shop.
Ive used my wifes old walmart bike like a wheelbarrel by sitting stuff on the seat and just pushing it

That's a great idea, thinking outside of the box.
Repurposed for multiple uses. If someone lived close enough , had paniers, basket and or rear rack, that's as much space as a lot of car trunks.

I have an e-Trike waiting to be assembled. I crashed my two wheeler twice in a month and my body is complaining. It can carry 50 kg on the rear carrier, so I'll be riding to the shops often. I'm looking forward to it. I have a Marin to sell if any aussie is interested...........

Glad you walked away from those spills.
Around here there are trees everywhere, so mountain biking is high risk. I know how that feels.
I've never seen an e trike. I hope that's exactly what helps. Sounds like it would serve well as a hauler.

e-trikes are not common, but there are more around than a couple of years ago. It's a long way removed from what I had as a kid. 4" wide tyres for a start.

Ive seen a e trike riding around a small town near me. It had a basket for groceries. Pretty nice.

My main concern is how wide the track is at the back. It will make passing parked cars interesting. I avoid the road where I can but that's not always possible.
