Raleigh Sprite IE Fixer Upper

Hmmm is right.

But the problem must lie in that clutch, no? Just based on the condition you're describing? Unless the motor is kicking in too severely, over-running your pedaling cadence, effectively advancing the large sprocket beyond the engagement point the clutch is currently locked into.

Except that wouldn't register as a "slip."

Yeah, I assume it has to be a clutch slipping. No sure if it’s the pawls or the ring that they are supposed to catch on.
