Default Re: Hills with a 49cc on Single Speed Bike?

I have a stretch cruiser, single speed, 40cc. I'm 6'2" and 190 lbs. I have no problem with hills in my area and unless you live in San Francisco you shouldn't have a problem either. The only real difficulties I have are stop signs on the way up or coming out of a parking lot in the middle of a hill. If you find yourself bogging down on the way up...pedal assist. Help your engine get up enough rpm that you're near the top of your power curve and it should be easy sailing after that.
