This compares to 17 watt hours per mile with the BMC V4C on the 'bent.
I suspect my average speed with the mountain bike was higher than the ebikeE, but the efficiency difference is too large to be accounted for by minor speed difference.
This geared hubmotor on this bike is quite efficient!
Alan B wrote:Interesting. I have a couple other sets of numbers. The 9C 2807 has been on two mountain bikes, the 2810 took its place on the newer bike. Rider is about 200 pounds in one case, 150 in the other

I take it by these suggestions that the stock brakes are a bit weak. That's my impression so far, but I haven't done any big descents yet with mine. Are they up to it? Or do I need to upgrade first??
The bikeE steerer tube may be 1-1/4", isn't it?
How do the drums compare to disc?
Since it is a steel fork I suppose a disc mount could be welded on.
The Shimano XTR V Brakes I put on my Mountain bike are pretty nice. Not sure if they would fit on the bikeE, but they might.

The zippy batteries fit nicely in the 2x3 vinyl downspout pipe... right up to the wiring pcboard where they get a little taller and wedge.
Back to the drawing board...
