Greetings fellow Fat Bear owners. I was never able to resolve the power assist operation while using the pedals. Power kicks in soon as the pedals spin but is all or nothing at least at the power level setting on the controller. I have come to the conclusion that this is simply the way these bikes work with the motor on the wheel. I had an opportunity to ride a much more expensive ebike with the motor at the pedal hub and power assist was smooth and proportional to the torque applied to the pedals. I am going to sell my new Fat Bear (about 4 miles on it) and have it listed on the classified section of this forum. I'm willing at this point to pay five times the price and get the in my opinion a better design. Anyone have a guess as to a fair price for my like new Rattan? I listed it for $800. I was never able to get Rattan customer service to send me the proper derailleur guard and finally gave up and just took it off the bike. I knew going into the purchase this was a very inexpensive bike for an off road capable bike with full suspension and was hoping I would like it but....
