should ebike speed be limited to just 25 km/h and should pedal assist be the only legal one?

I just want to see you do it. Even with the shuffling sections. Even just to ride it fully-loaded up to the narrow section :roll:

And only if you're adding another hundred or so watts yourself. :D But otherwise agreed.

I say a compromise is the best solution high assist should be limited to 25kph, medium to 30kph, low assist unlimited, whilst of course keeping the 250 watt limit.

That said I'm generalising here never been a fan of tax brackets, when a sliding scale is the solution, simple algebra really should be applied.
