This bike was set up for someone who travels about 25km from here to there every working day. Not happy with a slow speed, he electrified a MASI with a 1000W motor and 48V 10Ah tube battery. To get a high pedal speed that could match the motor he had to change the rear gear (originally single speed) to an 8 speed internally hubbed Shimano Nexus gear. It is a real treat to ride and is possibly what I would consider an ideal solution for daily commuting. It gets going very quickly but you can still pedal to put in a decent amount of effort.
