Sure ,makes sense .Well if you ever test one of those on a hill I would be interested in your take on it.Thanks Steve, I find that bike interesting but not sure I want a fixed gear bike. I will have to think about why I want an electric bike though as ultimately maybe I don't need the motor at this time. Several years ago I got the electric bike because I was commuting to work and needed to rush back home in a reasonable time because I had to pick up kids at daycare. Those days are over now as they're in their teens. So I can ride home slowly most days if I wish.
But the other reason I thought a motor would be nice is that I have some friends who race Cat 3 and on longer rides say 70km's to 120 km's I have trouble keeping up on the hills. Generally the flats are ok as I can just sit on wheels. It's the hills where I get dropped so I don't see this fixed gear electric bike suiting that purpose, but it probably works fine as a commuter.
Will have to give it some further thought but my initial reaction is that it's close but not quite there.
