yes. I still have to pedal as fast as I can to get it started. Once it's started, it runs great.
It wasn't starting yesterday no matter how hard I pedaled, so I got discouraged with it.
Today I tried it out and I still had to pedal really hard and really fast, but managed to get it running. I took a 15 mile cruise and it was fine.
I let it sit for a few hours and then wanted to ride it again.
I pedaled and pedaled and pedaled but now it doesn't even sound like it wants to start.
I don't get it!
Could this be the variator as well?
