  • I discovered that in the context of ebikes, the concept of "range" is fuzzy. Us electric cargo bikers learn to balance our electric power with our muscle power differently depending on our distance, speed, and carrying capacity goals. So when I'm tooling around town I just go full throttle. I can go maybe 25 miles at 15 to 20mph this way. But when I have to carry a load long...
