Hidden motors are big news in cycling. We now know that they have been used in at least one race. And, we suspect that they offer a huge advantage to those riders who use them. We got our hands on one to find out how feasible it is to use one, what the bike actually feels like, and, finally, whether they can turn a donkey (2016 Dan) into a racehorse (2011 Dan).
