I would much appreciate any opinions/advice from Bionx 250 W or 350 W owners.
How much difference in uphill handling is there between the two versions?
My commute is short, 6 miles each way, but 400 ft elevation, mostly on the way home.
I don't mind getting all sweaty going home but at work I often need to go to another
building 1.5 mile away over a modest hill and that frequently discourages me from riding,
plus at 67 I'm not getting any younger.
I am thinking of getting the 250 WattHours Bionx kit not only because it's cheaper but
because the battery capacity is within the limits that the TSA will allow to take it on a
plane. I need to bring it to Switzerland where I currently work. My question is whether
the torque of the 250W can handle the 400 ft hike, the last couple hundred feet being
about 10% grade. I am not interested in extended range or speed. I just noice that
more and more often those climbs make me use my car more often (figure $8.50/galon
gas on top of missed excercise). I feel that with the Bionx I will use the bike much more
often and get as much exercise as I choose.
