I answered this question in a Reddit forum, and am posting here as well. The question was, given that the Mosh is only a single speed (and it's geared pretty high) how does it do going up hill without any low gears?

First, here is what Micah Toll at Electrek stated in his review:

"Technically that’s a “250W continuous” motor, but we all know that European e-bike power ratings are meaningless. They carry “250W” stickers to pass EU power limit laws, but true power output is often closer to 500-800W, depending on the model. I rode the Serial 1 MOSH/CTY single-speed e-bike up some very steep off-road trails and it rocketed me to the top. So, yeah… “250 watts, wink wink.”"

Second, my personal experience from my first day:

On mild, slight, and moderate hills it's like you are still on flat ground. It's almost like you are going downhill, in that you peddle up to full speed quickly and stop to coast, which of course you don't since you're going uphill. I'm still getting used to it. But it eats most hills with no effort.

I rode to the steepest hill in my town to try it out. I would call this hill "San Francisco" level steep. Very steep. I had to work pretty hard to get to the top. But I am old and overweight and out of shape. I'd never be able to make it up that hill on a normal bike with any gear. FYI I weigh 225 pounds / 102 KG.

I did my first real hill yesterday on my Rush/City. I was mashing as hard as I could in Boost, the CVT just stayed steady, and before I knew it, I was at the top. I had to take a breather for a minute, am not overweight, just old and haven't been riding my pedal bike much lately. Brose' help was much appreciated!
