Yes the motor is off once I’m above the limit some days it feels like more drag than others,but i found the 2017 bike didn’t resist at all."the worse thing is the drag after 16.5mph is very noticeable"
That is an interesting observation. If you turn off the assist altogether is there still noticeable drag at the cranks while riding? Or is it just a function of some sort of electrical interference past the cut off.
