Re: Hi from IL
Like I said, technically, if it can go over 20 in IL, it's a moped, not a low speed gas or electric bicycle. But read the law - it's written very badly. Watch your tail and watch your speed, and no cop is going to make you prove what your top end is with a 170 lb rider on a flat road.
Also, yes, you keep your pedals and pedal chain. You can pedal it with the engine off, but it really sucks.
