There is always rolling terrain. I average about 170-190 watts for the whole commute. I was hoping to get an additional 100-150 watts to the rear wheel. I don't know how much that would translate into power from the front hub to achieve that. My plan was to use the batteries once up to speed and off on the down hill portions. I'll have to look into the better batteries. You think it would be better to get the SLA to get the learning curve figure out and then once they need to be replace go with the better ones?
