I was hoping for a solution to that problem.
I'm nearly 61, got arthritis in my feet, weigh 100 kg, and I find 250 watts more than adequate for climbing fairly steep hills. With a combination of pedal and electric (manually controlled - I like to pedal WITHOUT assistance sometimes) I can go up Welshpool Road in the Hills East of Perth at about 16 km/h, a distance of over 5 km, as happened today. 250 watts wouldn't get me up WITHOUT pedal assist, but then I've got a (petrol) motorcycle if I'm in a hurry. And I've done this climb after riding over 50 km to Perth and back beforehand.
And going downhill at the start of the ride I hit 78 km/h, without using the motor.
