The setting on my wife’s bike can be changed. The low and high are the same, but you can change from 1-3 to 1-5. I set it to 1-5. The lowest setting always seams to be the best.

I bought a Lectric XP 2.0 last month and love it. But I didn't care for the pedal assist. Maybe I have it set up wrong in the adjustments. I delayed the assist to start after a few pedal turns . when it kicks in, it goes 5.5 mph and won't go slower on PAS1. So I tried using the throttle also with pedal delay start. That way I can pedal and give it a little throttle assist and keep my speed down. The DW rides a trike and crusies around 5-7.5 mph. so throttle use when needed seems to work. But I wonder if there is something wrong with just pedal assist not going slower than 5.5 mph?

Because you have a cadence sensor your bike is set up to go a certain speed at each level. The motor only senses that you're pedaling not how hard you're pedaling.
A torque sensor senses how hard you're pushing on the pedals and the motor responds to that.

So there is nothing I can do about it, right? Just usea little throttle to give a slow speed assist.

About the 2.30 mark this guy explains how to keep it at 5 mph and still pedal.
