Default Re: How NOT to ride a motorized bicycle

I live in a canyon - hill here are steep - starting 1/2 way up a hill with motor off & letting it roll at 2mph, my 145lb body standing on the brake can't get me stopped before I run the stop sign at bottom of hill - sometimes if I mash the kill button & let out the clutch I can jake-brake it

meanwhile, the back yard is full of coaster wheels with cracked outer races from heat & one that broke the outer race and part of the hub right off
