LanghamP Posted August 2, 2017 Share Posted August 2, 2017 Hear me out on this one. We always talk about range but then complain how variable it is. Personally I've experienced a fully charged V5F+ going no more than 8 miles to the red bar, and 22 miles to the red bar, on different days. But one thing that doesn't change much at all for me is "hours ridden". That is, while other factors do change, the length of time I can stand on my wheel stays very close to the same, each and every time out. If I get two hours, and I'm brave and ride 15 miles per hour, then I get a range of 30 miles. If I am not willing to role the die, and go 8 mph, then I get a range of 16. Even going up and down hills versus flat still seems to be about two hours as regenerative braking makes up for the climbing. Accelerate hard? Well, you get up to top speed faster, and so the time is about the same. So I propose that instead of saying, "I get a range of x miles with this wheel", one could say, "I get x hours of riding time". How you use that riding time is up to you.
