I don't know whether they're available in CA, but Lectric Cycle's 20 mph (in the US), 46 pound, $795 e-bike seems to be reviewed well by numerous individuals. It folds too, so maybe she can take it...

One yelled that at me when I was riding in a clearly-marked bike lane. AFAIK, it's illegal in socal. I told him to get back on hid couch.

I haven't seen anything to support that, but since you "jam" the bike against the downtube, it would be necessary to cushion the frame IMO (I've used a rubber strip on all my installations)....

You're not limited to a mid-drive, but IMO they're best for off road. Look at a BBS02 from Luna Cycle or others. The total cost will be < $1,000 with a good battery.

IMO, fat tires look cool, but unless you're going to ride on sand or snow there is no reason for them. Should you ever get a flat tire, you'll find another compelling reason not to get them.
