Yeah, it's this weird thing where you have to turn up the motor setting to the highest (turbo) setting to try and get it to allow you to hammer hard, but it's always capped at some point.
Sprinting is the only thing bicycle related that I'm good at, on an e-bike the ability to sprint all out is just...gone.
Sustained tempo power however is far beyond human capability. Sit down and go through the motions of turning the cranks up a monster climb at 20 km/h without sweating or getting your heart rate up.
Your third point just isn’t true.
Your observations sound like they are based on one ride. If you’re not sweating or your heart rate isn’t up, your not doing it right. 20km going up? Maybe climbing up the road but unlikely. After a ride your average speed will be somewhere between 12 and 15km Climbing single track in boost/turbo, no way, impossible. So much misinformation in this thread.
In our little group there are eight of them. Your more then welcome to join us anytime. I’ll take you for a proper ride. Seriously!
