Rode 67.15km tonight on the RM503

Post by Lowell » Jun 27 2007 1:41am

870Wh one way (a few sprints over 80km/h hurts the average) and 740Wh on the return trip. I tried to average exactly 30mph for the whole trip, and I was only off by 1/2 percent. Covered 34km on the way home for an average of 21.8Wh/km including a few hills, a bridge and short stint at 40-45mph on a section of non bike friendly road so as not to block traffic.

I wish my bike started out 10lbs lighter, had rear suspension and all lithium power which would bring the total weight down to about 70-75lbs.

Sub 9kg FS bike with room in the frame for batteries 8)

Throw on a Puma, lipos and you'd be ready to ride at ~ 20kg.
