Default Re: Does anyone not use pedals?

If you don't want pedals, get a scooter or a motorcycle. IMO, if your motorized bicycle has no need for pedals, it's not a(n*) motorized bicycle** even if it mobs.

Pedal torque is key to a legally-realistic motorized bicycle. Example: my 2HP bike goes 0-20MPH in about 3.5 seconds, 30 in 5 or less. Why = Torque.

* pronunciation may vary lol
** Motor-assisted Bicycle
