How does the Halfbike perform up hill?
Both the Halfbike 2 and Halfbike 3 are best suited to flat ground. However they can manage going up hills as well, especially if the rider is fit. We can tell from experience that both the three-speed and four-speed models are fine for inclines up to 7-8%, but anything over that will be a struggle.
When ordering a Halfbike 3 you're presented with 3 options of gear sprockets to chose from, depending on the terrain that you ride regularly. If your city or daily commute would be on mostly flat terrain you should go with the 14T sprocket. If it's a mix of flat ground and gentle slopes you should go with 15T. If it's a more hilly area you should go with the 17T sprocket.
