need some advice here and some real world experiences.
i have been reading tons of stuff about electric bikes and even took
a bionx bike for a test drive and loved it.
the 2 things that are scaring me off is.. one ..the battery.. so expensive to replace.
2) how long will the battery last? i have read of people needing a new battery in only a few
months. i was told it was a few years by the dealer. If i have to buy a $1k battery every year
i would not be pleased.
I ride all year(Vancouver BC) so the only thing that stops me is snow\ice ..otherwise i am always riding.
i would be riding about 10km per day and more on weekends 10km-20km per day.
i am afraid i will burn the thing out in a year.
i would mostly be using it as a little boost. i am sure i would be using it almost all the time in setting 1 or 2
I used setting 2 on my test ride and it was perfect.
so if anyone could please post experiences..if you have had the bionx for a few years ..etc.. how long the battery lasts..
