Re: [ev-1] e-bike distance

It is also worth pointing out that your tire pressure can make a difference.  Make sure they are not low on air.  I keep mine at 50 PSI, but your tires may be different...

You probably already know this, but switching to lithium ion is an option if u need more distance between charge points.

Hi Arnie,
 
20 kms sound about right under the conditions you described.

I purchased a scooter style e-bike from a friend.  He only had it for a few months before I purchased it.  But it doesn't go very far on a charge, it gets about 20km.  I've seen this bike on some websites that say it should get 40km on a charge. I realize that a lot of factors come into play and that I don't have the optimal conditions.  For example, I weigh almost 200 lbs and I live in Vancouver where it's impossible to avoid traversing hills.  I also don't pedal much, mostly just when starting or going up hills, when the bike slows down.
 
Do you think getting only 20km on a charge is normal under these circumstances, or should I be doing some diagnostics to see if there is an issue with the motor or battery or something like that?
 
I love riding and would use it a lot more if I could get more distance out of it.  Thanks in advance for any comments you may have.
 
Regards,
Arnie
