Default Re: New here wondering on this kit and if it would work for what I need.

With a 1000 watt motor you'll probably have enough power to accelerate without needing to help by pedaling but may still need to help it along going up a hill... I'm not very familiar with the electric bikes but 1000 watts is about 1.3 or 1.4 horsepower so that might help you with your decision on what kit to buy...
From what I've seen, I don't have any first hand experience with electric bikes, but a 3000 watt bike will go just over 35 mph and get you over most hills without the need to pedal.
