Most of that is covered by the 'grocery getter'. My current project is stripping, refinishing and rebuilding an old Miyata 'six ten' frame for that purpose (it may get a trailer as well). The 'fly weight' is intended for shorter leisure trips or taking advantage of the municipal bus with the bike racks.

Mornings and evenings are not quite as brutal especially if one has a little assist to keep air flowing.

That is why I want to be able to leave the battery off and use it in pedal only mode. For that reason I would really like to know how much drag the Bafang Mid Drive has.

I spent some time examining the the CT frame this weekend. I had failed to consider the limitations of the 'road racer' design. As it turns out I will probably be limited to 28mm wide tires. It also appears that my postage scale and manufacturer specs have a serious disagreement :shock:
