    Hi Phil..Things of importance. 1 batteries over 12ah are expensive,and you will need bigger ah if you have rentals.. 2 insurance. 3 mechanic, or at least someone with DIY experience of ebikes on hand. 4 luck. Mark.

    Crank drag is killing me!

    I have only ridden a bbs01 mid drive and i felt it very difficult to pedal without power, best bet would be a bigger battery or a geared hub for easy pedalling and efficiency,like berry said try another bike see how it feels. level 1 is terrible on my system iirc 7mph!
