Ah, okay. Yeah, I've fluctuated up to seven pounds when going from very hydrated to very dehydrated.

Gents,

Yesterday - on July 12 – I rode 173.3 miles from Johnsville, CA (near Plumas-Eureka State Park, 1 hour north of Truckee) to Sacramento, CA via Hwy 49 mostly. I broke five spokes in the process, had the rim replaced in Auburn, and continued on with dim lighting in the dead of night for twenty miles – all to catch the midnight train (Amtrak) back to Seattle (which I did, and now I’m home).

I will write more about this epic ride shortly. Briefly though: On July 1st I rode 133 miles from Klamath Falls, Oregon to Burney, CA, then roughly 100 miles on the 2nd from Burney to Greenville, CA, then 52 miles on the 3rd from Greenville to Johnsville.

But the best ride of the set was the very last; spectacular high Sierra, through Grass Valley, then down into the Sacramento metro following the American River at night. Rabbits, Deer, and Homeless People – oh my!

More shortly; need shower and sleep :mrgreen:

Five in one ride? On the same wheel, I guess? Do you have suspension on that wheel? I'm always curious about spoke breakages on others' bikes, so I can try to prevent them on my own (I have enough as it is from the potholes vs unsuspended bike weight).

AW, yes – it was over several days but on one trek. Long saga but I took copious notes and a few pictures which will take me some time to compile and generate 8)

Same front motor – 9C 2806; the broken spokes were on the stock rear wheel which was carrying the majority of the load. I calculated the bike, batts, and I weighed 300 lbs altogether.

Front suspension only; 1st-gen RockShox.

I don’t know precisely when the spokes broke; I was having issues with that wheel from the moment I got off the train in Klamath Falls until the hub/rim was replaced in Auburn, however I detected the breakage shortly after leaving the rocky road from the family campsite. I went about another 60-80 miles in that condition, then hit a bump in Grass Valley and broke two more. A guy following me thought the wheel was going to fall off (ha!) I have no fear :twisted: and pushed on for another 20-30 miles to Auburn where I had the wheel replaced altogether. Stole about 0.3 Volts at the bike shop charging while they worked on it :mrgreen:

However the bottom line was that in one day I rode 173.3 miles with 15S12P LiPo (~47 lbs) on my P0 commuter bike, on a single charge (sans < 1 volt charged on the fly), climbing 8031 feet and descending 12943 feet over a period of roughly 15 hours (counting rest stops which were frequent).

I need to scoot; lots to do today to catch up, but I will report more this late evening.
