I’m seriously considering buying a Model 30, especially at their discounted price! My only concern is hills. I want to use it to commute 4 miles to work across Brighton, however there’s some pretty nasty hills at either end.
I borrowed a friend’s electric bicycle (a freego hawk) and it just completely cuts out when going up some of the hills, even only using it for light pedal assist.
I guess the E-Rider 15 wouldn’t fare a whole lot better given the regulations in the UK on power (but it’d be so nice not to have to worry about a CBT, insurance and be able to use the cycle lanes), but how is the Model 30 with steep inclines?
