So now after commuting this for a few months (but only a few days a week vs WFH) since my sachs got looted, I gotta say the hybrid drive is actually really great. I'm like 4 tanks in at about 60-80mpg, Or around 50x 5 mile trips and some random intown rides besides. so I dunno 2-300mi.

1) makes it very easy to start, you just kinda hit the go button and the ICE engine chugs along til it warms up and takes you away

2) start and hillclimb, it really does climb and start uphill a LOT better, on my commute theres a big steep dirt hill to go around a fence, but it cuts almost a mile out of my commute and keeps me on much nicer smaller roads. I used to pedal or sometimes even walk my kitted sachs but this does it really effortlessly.

3) Ass saving! Only twice has the bike died (once clogged petcock, once I just ran outta gas) but the electric saved my ass both times, just e-power my way home. it's slow, only like 15mph but way faster and easier than pedaling.

4ish) not a big gain but the lights are bangin', LED's easy, and if I was more industrious, blinkers would be dead simple and really any 12v accessory. I mean pretty standard battery advantage but it counts for something

5ish) I can get away with bike paths and sidewalks, still to a limited extent but moreso than with the engine buzzing away

Anyway, Ive come to really love it, it get insane mileage and I only charge it weekly (it was 2x daily if I drove full on e-mode before it'd lose it's go) and it's been a really surprisingly great, reliable and fun whip.

Biggest negatives? The battery should probably be more rigidly affixed, it's fine for now but will probably fatigue the mounts in a year or 2. and the mechanical disk front brake on the hub motor is only so-so. it works fine but it's just janky and I don't trust it's longevity. probably need pads semi frequently.
