I've been riding my Mosh every day now for just over a month. I usually cruise around on Sport (3/4), sometimes dropping to Tour (2/4), and sometimes bumping up to Boost (4/4) for steeper hills.

When I turn off all assist levels, I feel like the motor is offering resistance that I have to overcome when pedaling. Is this real? Or am I just so used to the assist now that the hard pedal feeling is a phantom feeling, that my mind is just not used to anymore?

I'd guess that it is just that I am no longer used to the unassisted pedal resistance, but it almost feels like when I pedal with assist off, the bike actually slows down, when compared to just coasting. It's a strange feeling. Is this something other brand Class 1 ebike cyclists feel I wonder.

These motors offer no resistance unless of course something is broke inside. You can check this by just turning the pedal by hand and see if you feel resistance. I believe you are feeling the weight of the bike, I experience this when going over 20 mph and the motor cuts out and I keep pedaling.
