Just took my new Phatmoto Hybrid bike for a test ride today around the neighborhood mostly using the electric system and pedal power for propulsion. I did do a short section using gas and pedal power when the opportunity arose, just as a test of that part of the system. Observations: Chain noise and drag where noticeable during engine off conditions; Pedal assist is far too powerful at this point, there is no way to control its effect with the system I have and the only check I have on my speed short of applying brakes is to stop pedaling or backpedal also I have found that the application of electric throttle will cancel pedal assist; Under gas power the engine has a tendency to quit at the most inopportune time, at stop signs, traffic lights or just coasting with the throttle closed. I am still searching for the solution to the stalling problem. Possible causes are: Lack of venting of fuel tank; engine still tight (less than 5 kilometers); engine idle set too low or, fuel mixture too lean.
