2000 km on a bike chain is a bit low. Do you frequently degrease, clean and grease your drive chain? I did only wear out 1 drivechain actually last year on 7500 km! (Was expecting to reach 10k km, but an injury during summer prevented that.) Sure they were out, but only 2000 km?
I do, but I would not want to risk the cassette wearing out due to the chain wearing out. Spoke with an old time bike repair guy friend of mine who has driven all through Europe for a couple years, and told me I had to replace my chain every half a year when doing 10k (so yeah, 5k instead of 2k would be a better rule).

To be honest I'm still a little on the fence about having picked a arbon belt drive, becouse it really limits your ability to speed up manueally due to the belt stretching and losing that initial torgue. But in the end I chose for reliability in favour of acceleration.

I actually prefer my Campagnolo shifters. Love the thumb switches on them.
I've had similar designed switches on my (now stolen) carbon race bike, and I agree they were amazing!

Depends on the working place. A second pair of clothes and the ability to take a short shower before work helps a lot. My boss knows I will do the 35 km between home and office with my racing bike (22 kilometers of follow this bicycle path!) in case the weather favours that; My usual working place is my home office, so it isn't a daily thing.
A shower on the job! Such luxery! I sometimes take my MTB to work in biking gear and coming in full of sweat, but since repairing shoes is a physical job it really is too much to take two one-hours workouts on top of that. Especially when taking account working out/playing basketball times a week it can get a bit much to stay energised at times. But I guess once my body gets used to it I could start thinking about taking the manual engine a bit more.

The road I'm taking is mostly rural with dedicated (but worn out) bike paths, and I can even take a little detour to take 10km driving on an old canal dike! Ideal for the thick tires of a speed pedelec, less ideal for racing tires. All in all the whole thing will set me back 9k, but I'm hoping to save on  taxes, insurance and most of all fuel for the upcoming 5 to 10 years  Beast Frenzy

To be fair, these are the bikes I contemplated aswell:
Riese and Muller Roadster2 (good looking, athlethicly posistioned bike, but with a range of only 30km)

Stromer ST3 2022 (fast, athletic bike but equiped with back wheel-powered motor, which will leave replacements and repairs monopolised)

Flye Upstreet 3 7.83 (has Rohloff shifter but the Alluminium frame ticked me off, wanted steel, close second though)

Tjens is lazy and needs a bike that can assist as much as possible!

Yes! I need that 85 Nm of torque per minimum! I have a 20km up and 20km down trip every day to figure in, where i'm looking to charge on only one of those points to save on taxes!

This bike will have a Rohloff electronic shifter for durablity and efficiency, but have a carbon Gates belt nonetherless. This will save me maintenence costs in the end when compared to a bike chain, which needs to be replaced every 2000km's (I'll average 6000 a year). I actually owned both a mountainbike and a carbon one for leasure, and i'll miss the quick shifts on those shimano hear groups, but i'dd rather have a comfortable ride being fresh for work than a sweaty mess starting in the morning!

I'm going for the high speed "pedelec" version, which reaches 45 km/h, and I'm hoping to reach 80 kilometers on it, save me forgetting to recharge it. That's taking battery degridation into account. Reaching 45 km/h will require some human effort still though, but it won't be much of a problem with my trained athletic long legs!
