Um, Actually it'd be kinda nice to have the Newton Meter numbers of all the Opti Bikes so I can make an informed purchase.
For instance an E3 Peak gets a 73 NM score on torque and it's about the same price as an Allroad. I can also go buy an E3 tomorrow, with full support and spare parts, at a nearby store, no waiting for shipping, and can drive it right out of the store.
I like optibikes and am interested in buying one though, even perhaps a more expensive one than the Allroad, which really isn't a true Optibikes, if you ask me. The only deciding factor for me is the NM spec, or lack thereof. I find it odd that some companies aren't more forthcoming with torque spec info upfront. I guess they don't want the competition to know perhaps.
It makes me reluctant to buy products from them though.
I'm not sure if you got a response from anyone about the torque specs, the pioneer allroad is advertised as a 500watt motor, which is presumably its peak power. There is a company that has a very similar (if not the same) bike/motor just in different colors and is rated for 65nm torque.
Don't know if this helps any...
Just went for a ride and here is the wattage the display read at each level of assist. I rode on flat ground and kept a peddle cadence of around 85rpm. Here are the peddle assist levels and watts.
1=83watts, 2= 170watts, 3= 260watts, 4=385watts, 5=513watts
Nm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton_metre .... one Newton meter equals .74 foot pounds force, and .74 ft lbs equals about one watt. Still don't understand? Me neither. If you only get 65 Nm from a 500 watt motor, it appears that a lot of energy has disappeared somewhere.
I must say I'm surprised that the torque figure is so modest.
But it's the gears that count, and this bikes got 'em and knows how to use 'em.
I can climb the hill I descend on the fat side of 38 mph without using the granny chainring on my Allroad's touring triple.
