Look at the electric bikes being run in road races like PPIHC or the Isle of Man, they use 3 phase AC motors and holy shit are those things fast. You can lift the front wheel at any time you want with those bikes. There is no power band because you're always in it. I agree with you that DC is lame, but 3 phase AC is a whole other beast. Once the cost comes down there's no question they'll dominate the racing world.
