And no, not considering one for me, possible Elaine may eventually succumb. She is painfully slow uphill, as in it quite painful for her to endure even my pace up hill which I consider pitiful. [my pace not her considering it].

We go riding every Friday with a friend who has recently purchased an Orbea Gain Road. He's been a cyclist for many years, but now that he's past 70, found that he was having problems staying with the group on hills. With the Orbea, he can use the assist to keep pace with the group when we're climbing. That's about the only place that he turns it on - he says that on flat ground, without any assistance from the motor, the bike feels pretty much the same as and doesn't feel any slower than the Scott road bike he was previously riding.
