Been giving it some more rides, it really does help, if i drop off the electric (left thumb throttle) and keep on the regular gs throttle I feel it slow down. A few more timed runs it's really like double the acceleration. kinda feels like pedaling to get moving - anyway I hit 20 in like 18 seconds on the gas engine alone, and in under 10s with e-assist.
and roff, I've had this "done" since december but I didnt have forks! that was almost the only hold up for the past 3 months haha. I dont know if we're gonna do much with the other maxi frames but I saw the concord xke right away and fell in love. theyre such a gorgeous frame. thanks again and y'all stay well
