I too think that the power assist levels aren't well tuned and are way too strong on level 1 & 2.
I thought I'd switch to the AMX from an AM1+ that I rode for the last twelves months. And while almost everything about the AMX feels like a step up, and well considered, the decision to give the AMX so much power that in city traffic among pedestrians it feels like a motor scooter, not a bike, is a huge show stopper for me. I want to feel like I am still in control of the bike and still using human force to power it, I don't want to feel patronised by a controller that right away puts in all it's got and appears to be saying
you don't need to be pedalling at all, look how strong I am!
So I came here thinking there must be a configuration switch that allows me to adjust that, but there is no mention of that, and instead, I find attitude from the founders:
@jack: “Any less boost than this is not necessary - and less fun 🙂”
@nav: “I hope that you grow to love the power and security that high torque can offer, especially on less forgiving terrain and when boosting away from traffic and lycra clad cyclists. Make sure to smile at them as you blast off into the distance.”
Guys, I'm sorry, but maybe take a step back listen to yourselves. You may have a dislike for lycra clad cyclists, and other people may not like people on e-bikes zipping past them as if they were sitting on electric scooters, in areas where scooters aren't allowed, but bikes are.
Traffic is a complicated thing, and it is quite different in every city. In places where pedestrians and bicycles mix in many areas, the AMX's default settings are a terrible choice. Right now I regularly find myself switching to 0 to not feel ashamed riding this thing in such mixed environments. A good product acknowledges the complexity of this and doesn't encourage egoistic behavior in places where we should focus on getting along as a community instead. There is too much of that elbows-out thinking in 2020 already. Isn't it time to change that?
If you tell me there is no setting I can change, and no willingness to adjust it from the makers e.g. in form of a firmware update that I could flash to the bike, then I will have to stick to my AM1+ and sell this new bike instead. That's a real pity, because almost all the other aspects of its build feel better.
