Pedelec Update

I've hit 42 mph & it seems to lose sufficient torque to assist somewhere around 40.

The battery is 1/2 a kilowatt hour & I can get ranges above 40 miles so my "fuel" costs about 6 cents a "tank." It certainly costs more in reality because there's the depreciation on the motor & the charge cycles used to figure the actual cost of a mile from the battery. The battery was over $600 so I figure it's still nearly $1/mile when I hit 700 miles of travel. 

I have 3 more range & stamina tests to do:

slight up hill ride for a distance just over 50 miles

steep climb for about 6.5 miles

flat ride to see if I can reach 100 miles before the battery dies.

    Excellent! Where are you going to find a slight slope that is 50 miles long?

      Williamsburg to Richmond Va it has a slight uphill grade with 2 hills near Richmond that equate to about a 20 story climb.

          SO the whole ride did equate to climbing up 48 stories & back down about 45 over a span of 52 miles.
