How's your wH/mile holding up?
After two weeks in the saddle...cretainly the build bug has you eyeing some upgrades?

I'm thinking of going with the 10T and frame battery as well. Also on a Giant (although older model) hardtail mountain bike. I don't have many hills on my commute but there are certainly a bunch around San Diego and I'd like to be able to ride around without having to fear them.
A few questions (if you're still following things):
Could you update on how everything is running after a full summer of use?
What kinds of top speeds are you seeing (without pedaling)?
What size is your frame?
Anything you wish you had done differently? Different battery? Motor? Full suspension? etc...

But, my 9c is more efficient at cruising and if I am smart with the throttle I can get better wh/mile, especially with regen in the city.
The other problem I had with Macs is the inability to handle heat and going over 90 degrees Celsius at 20wh/mile in 95 F ambient temps. Even at 15wh/mile the temp would still keep rising above 90 C, and it was only 85 F!
Morning are usually in the low 70s, afternoons can be anywhere from the mid 70s to high 80s.veloman wrote:What is your ambient temp?
