Are you saying you accelerate slowly rather than quickly?SamTexas wrote:I'm one the rare few who consistently sees 10Wh/mi or less. I provide at least half of the necessary power up to 20mph.
This is in relation to the throttle. You twist the throttle so you get to your ideal more slowly than you could. To illustrate, a contrast might be a person using (wide open throttle) WOT to get to their aimed speed. You use much less throttle to get there.SamTexas wrote:Huh?
I accelerate at least twice as quickly on my ebike compared to my non-electrified bicycle. By myself I can do 300W burst and 150W continuous. The pitiful (by others' standard) additional 200 - 300W provided by the motor turns me into a super-cyclist.
