hiya, I am currently trying to get hold of a C5, been something I've been thinking of for about 3-4 months now on and off, and found this forum and realised I'd struck Gold! Just wondered if any regular users of them could tell me though - how much peddling do you have to do with these things, and with the shorter crank arms, and no gears, how hard is it? You hear about how it had trouble on even light hills, but is it that hard to get one up a medium, or heaven forbid a rather steep hill? I'm not shy of using a mountain bike, but that's obviously got a lot of gears, and doesn't weigh a lot. I've read the posts on this forum quite a lot and you hear people say about batteries lasting 6-7 miles - is that worst case though, if you pull away with the motor only and leave it in all the time instead of coasting? thanks!
