Default Re: Single speed or multi-speed bike

I weigh 180 lbs. I have a Currie 24 volt electric mountain bike with a 7 speed and have to assist the electric motor on steep hills. Does the gas engine have more or less torque than the electric motor? I don't have a problem with "assisting" the motor but I don't want to buy a gas kit and a single speed bike and have to "walk" it up the hills when if I had had a 7 speed or greater I could ride.
