      Can you tell us your expectations for performance?

      How fast do you want the vehicle to go?
      How much will the vehicle and rider weigh?
      On what kind of terrain? Level, 2% grade, 6% grade? what?
      What are your expectations for range?


      Professional cyclists can produce around 130 Watts.
