Hub drive, 350W motor, minimal bells and whistles, tight margins. I wonder what the margin is on those $14,000 ebikes from Specialized.That almost seems *too* cheap. Is it that the class 2 motor setup is actually cheaper because it doesn't have to back itself into "assist-only" mode?
And yes, a throttle seems like a cheaper component to build than the pedal assist drivetrain would be.
