The ebike I have has a top speed of 20 mph. That is 100% fine for the type of riding I do. For my teen and partner, they would want someone similar for a few reasons. 1, they would be riding with me who has a speed of 20mph. 2, they are not speed demons and it would feel odd/wrong to go faster than a standard bike, and 3, injury prevention. My husband didn't learn to ride a bike until his 20s and while comforable, he's tentative. My teen learned at 13 and he has high functioning autism. I don't know if it matters or not, but both are 6'2" and have average weight and fitness (we fast walk daily for exercise).I realize that pedestrian speed might not be other people's aims/goals and that is 100% fine, but I want to be able to control speed easily. If I were to do the mid-drive bike, will it be easy to control speed?I see in several posts by Johnny that mid-drive has a learning curve. With that knowledge, would it maybe be better for fairly novice cyclists who are only used to standard bikes to go with a rear hub (which mine is) I simply don't know how this compares? Our bike riding will be around town (we live in a planned community full of paved pathways) and on scenic bike paths near us. It's just hilly. We live in a valley to even get out of our neighborhood, it means a climb that "can" be done with a regular bike, but it's not pleasant.Thanks for any help!
