    Yes, my Ohm Urban with the G1 350W motor is limited to 20 mph. I have no need or interest in the 28mph limit. My Moto Guzzi Breva 750 can go much faster. :)

    The new D motor, at 500W, is capable...

    Today I did a "fitness" ride on the Ohm Urban with new battery. I used a boost of 1 for most of the ride until going to 3 and 4 to get up the hill and home.

    Apparently, the newer 555Wh batteries have better battery management. Being a somewhat OCD guy, I use an Ensupra meter to see how many Wh it takes to charge the battery after x miles each day. ...

    Thanks, Powell.

    Yeah, that was the general use of the original battery. Seldom did the 8 bars go down to 4 or less, and the battery got charged after every ride. I had no complaints with the OEM...

    New Bionx battery for my Ohm Urban 700

    Last week I decided to replace the 3-year old battery in the Ohm Urban 700 to a new one, with much more storage.

    The original battery, Bionx, 36V, shown here, started with 355Wh, and now had 265Wh...

    Hey, I was there this morning and didn't see you! :)

    Didn't have a fixie, though. I was riding the Marin 21-speed. It has a decent lowest gear for getting up most of Seattle's hills.

    Hills and bicycling make Seattle either a biking hell or a training heaven. I've been riding an e-assist Ohm Urban for three years here and have never enjoyed biking more, using the assist only as...

    Noisy new rear sprocket

    Last week I had the LBS replace a chain and rear (9-gear) rear sprocket.

    Upon riding it, the rear sprocket is causing a lot of noise when I stop pedaling and the axle under it is rotating. It...

    I think Bionx will allow you to go faster than 20mph (32kph) on the XS750, if the computer is set to sport mode (or whatever it might be called). For off-road applications, of course.

    Tech despotism? Funny. Super cars are limited to somewhere around 160mph, and they could go quite a bit faster in many cases.

    You can pedal as fast as you want, nothing is holding you back. ...
