I just bought the 80cc from Zoom Bicycles, I havnt even installed it on my bike, I just got a raleigh front suspension 18" frame. and the jet stealth 80cc

Im excited to get on the roads! Im in a very hilly city and dont mind some peddling but getting up these mini mountains is too much for a daily commute...

Anyone have experience with 18% slopes with 80cc bicycle?? PS i have the 44T.

I purchased the same engine for my boyfriend.

we.

I have a very heavy bike with a 44t sprocket and it pulls great up hills, so if your light it will do fine unless from a dead stop. Welcome to the forum

Howdy Jess, welcome. Found the thread with the hill climbed with a 44T rear sprocket. went up this hill with some help peddle great! Cant see it real well, but is a good sized hill. http://motorbicycling.com/f15/wickham-park-3482.html Can get a lil more climb with a bigger rear sprocket, but try the stock 44T first and find out what you like best. Going bigger will lose MPH but give you more "UMPH" on inclines.

Awesome vid Fair! Man I wanna ride there.
