Going uphill. It is a three mile, 1000 foot climb. He had it in a low gear, pumping away furiously. Not sure of the point of spandex at 5 MPH, but Chee Hoo!
3/4 throttle, with moderate pedaling, I passed him like he was standing still. And I'm pedaling upright, with a 20lb backpack, and my bike already weighs 65 lbs.
I can't believe how adding a 10 lb battery and a 10 lb motor to a bike turns it into a 'roid raging tandem beast. It's a shame these things don't catch on so fast.
Chalk another win-win up for the Ebike.
