Indeed

As just one intelligent example; how about a 4.2 lb. assist (that includes motor, drive hardware, controller and battery).

"One concern I do have is normally on my short 5 to 10 mile, 8 to 16� km errand runs I purposely do strong HP acceleration out of intersections and stop streets as a way to do mini interval training. If I use the assist for acceleration help, it is thrilling but in the long run I may be loosing muscle tone."
