This is just WRONG!

Looking for something drool-worthy, and I came acrossthis:
Now I get the idea of a nice titanium frame, and I can see how it would blend nicely into a good gravel bike. I can also see the allure of an e-bike for older riders -- I came across grandma pedaling with her kids and grandkids this week, and she was able to keep up when she needed to.

But to put them all together? Take a nice, lightweight frame and add 5-10 pounds of battery and motor to it? And find a road that might or might not be paved (sounds like some of my city's streets!), and put that grandma on that road gunning her e-bike up the hill? Heck, give her a Harley!

Hey, you darn old farts! Get off my lawn!!
