It works really well though as part of my route is a steep climb on a footpath through a place called bluebell woods. Half way up I switched the battery off and ground to a halt straight away as was in too high a gear. Also I was following a guy the other day on a similar bike but bot electric. Once I managed to get past him I disapeared into the distance. 

By law in the UK the electric part can only work up to 15mph. In Europe I believe it is 22mph.

Ah, so it is an assistance motor. That's cool, especially for hills. Smile

 Yep. I swear by it as I live at the top of a 2 mile climbing gradient

Sweden is very hilly too so that has always dissuaded me from cycling. I'll look into an electric bike now. Smile
