Only one of the 3 cogs is used, that's just the back end of a standard cassette for more stability than a stamped sprocket. Wanted that 32t cog to lower the gearing and this is an easy way to get it. It rides like a dream, as if the back tire isn't there. Whatever you hit, the bike doesn't slow down. And it's unflappable under power, it doesn't squirm or squat under throttle due to the high pivot design. The IGH is in the frame so all the mass is as centralized as possible. It is so reactive. It is heavy for a bicycle, but it's also stable at speed and it's not too heavy. It turns every trail into a pump track, whether you're going up or down. The front remains light and can easily be lifted by motor power alone through 3rd gear (25mph) and with a tug it comes up while seated through 5th gear. The pedals work fine too.
Where would such a monster compete? Eco Bike Adventures is generous enough to host the first open class ebike race among the amazing trails in Northern Cali. 15 miles of amazing racing, Good luck fellow racers, this bike is faaaaast.
