Default Re: 80/69 CC Take off speed

I go easy on my bike, and let out the clutch at about 8mph (where idle speed it about equal to rolling speed). You must remember that with only one speed, it's like being pinned in 2nd gear. I consider pedaling as my 1st gear. I usually pedal assist until it gets up into the powerband a bit more. Like bigbutterbean said, they are made to be pedal-assisted.
