How ia it with the pedal assist turned OFF please? Is it a huge drag, or just a noticeable extra weight while cycling?

Thanks!

 

 

 

That was covered in the not noticing the 3kg extra weight bit. 

 

 

No, it's not just about extra weight, it's also about the pedal assist motor possibly offering torque resistance when switched off, as happens with (some?) Bosch ebikes; hence my question.

 

You're determined not to read the bit that says "...and there’s not a hint drag from the motor." aren't you.
