hobby16 Posted July 7, 2015 Share Posted July 7, 2015 Here are some energy data on my Firewheel 16".The rule of thumb is 12Wh/km or 19Wh/mile. At lower speeds, it should be possible to get 10Wh/km. With a 130Wh battery, expect to get 11km range. With a 170Wh battery, expect less than 10 miles.There is a mean speed of about 22km/h over a distance of 20km with stops, intersection crossing, slowdowns... so my cruise speed is over 25km/h. Firewheel rocks ! Wheel = 13.6kg, rider = 65kg, total = around 80kg. Tyre pressure = 3 bar.Mean speed (km/h) and distance (km) measured by a "Sunding" bike computer. Energy (Wh) measured by Charge Doctor.Original data here, if you want to convert to other metrics (miles per 1kWh...).https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MsuAMM87v9bv4sZ-I58M3dmKV1Iq0hnA0cyzTZ5mwkI/edit?usp=sharing Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
