That's a very silly way to think about it. My point about smoothness of pedal stroke was supposed to elucidate the fact that there is significant loss or "lack of even, or constant" momentum during any cycling.

If bikes were powered by motors instead "bi-peds" weight would be much less important. Even heavy legs don't work as well as light ones....

The "three-to-one thing" is only a factor of overcoming inertia during acceleration. But never mind.
