Default Re: Do I have to use pedals?

Simple answer, Yes, you absolutely need pedals!

First, these motors aren't designed to pull you from a dead start, they are not geared for that, you need the pedals to get rolling.

Second, where are you gonna put your feet?

Third, having no pedals takes the motorized bicycle from legal to illegal in most states...

That said, you only need one gear on the pedals, preferably something that is easy to pedal from a stop. You wont use them all that much, but when you need them you need them....
