I have been researching various bikes and am sure that others have been experiencing the same problem. Just how fast will the bike go? Most bikes reviewed here are Class 2. As best i can determine, when you reach 20 mph and try to go faster by pedalling hard, the motor reduces its assist so you are stuck at 20. With class 3, you are able to break the 20mph barrier with pedalling. I asked folks at Pedego and evelo and both confirmed that their bikes (class 2 according to the reviews posted on this site) can be pedalled faster than 20. So what is correct? I think that Court should include in his reviews a "can it go faster than 20 test". Any thoughts on this. Would love to have each ebike owner do their own test and report it as a comment here.
