Well actually, thats not too good if you have to go 29.3 miles.

Try pedaling as much as possible and use hypermiling techniques like coasting.

jakemacd: Top speed on flat road ~25mph full throttle. Time is approximately 20mph. Cost was more than I wanted. I was hopping for $1000, spent about $1700. But that also does not include the cost of the bike, also I bought 4 chargers so I can charge the whole system in 6hrs, & not have to bring the chargers back & forth to work. That cost an extra $300. I got the bike about 10 years ago, rode it 3-4 times & then it went into storage.

skyl4rk: The batts's have only been cycled twice. I've read that the pack won't come up to full strength untill 5-10 cycles. I just did a 26 mi run & still have power. Also when the pack cut out it was at full throttle. It would still work at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle. So I hoping that the pack will come up to power. When I charged it yesterday it only charged up 15ahrs. I'll see what it does today.

Yeah!! WTG Echomodder. I imagine your new wheels are the talk of the "shop" today at work. Now let's just hope for a successful roundtrip. Keep us posted!

Charging done. Packs charged to about 12AH each. So I would guess I still had 5 or so AH left in the pack. I took skyl4rk's advice & peddeled as much as possable. Maybe to much.
