How many miles on your e-bike?

just wondering how many miles/kms are on your e-bike?

A guess would be fine.

My commute is 25km each way, and based on 2-3 trips per week for 10 weeks, I'd have to guess that my total mileage on my e-bike is in the neighborhood of 750 kms.

I used my wife's e-bike last year, and would guess that I put about 1500kms on it.

I bought my Bionx Kit for my ebike conversion. last Oct. I rode it for a month or so, before winter hit full force and didn't get to start riding it again until April 9th of this year. I commute to work back and forth on it mostly. A 10km or so ride each way, depending on the route. I do the occasional "fun" ride on it when I don't feel like riding my "regular bikes." My current mileage on the ebike as of this morning is 3158.7kms.

2003 TidalForce 750....12,000 miles, still going strong on 2nd NiMh 36V 13ahr battery pack.

Regeneration has gone spotty on applying the brakes, used to ramp in flawlessly, now stutters from time to time. Switched out the original front hub battery system when it went bad, for a lighter front disk brake and a lot more stopping power.

Just over 2000 miles in the past 9 months. Commute is 15 miles per day. The only problem has so far been adding stronger planetary gears to the motor. The Ping LifePO4 battery is as strong as day one.

I only do 10 miles a day and recently it has been raining A LOT! I don't ride in the rain - too dangerous.

However, I have about 700 miles in 9 months.

2008 Electrec with about 1500 miles in about 1 year. Original battery still has plenty of range. I commute round trip 13 miles 4 or 5 days per week. Bike still has mostly original parts except for my upgrades. The only parts I HAD to replace were: 1. blown tube/tire the first week I had it; 2. new brake pads - the OEM pads disintegrated badly in cold, wet conditions. It's been very rainy in NJ the past few weeks and the Electrec has taken several drenching rides without a problem (after the new brakes!).

644Km since spring but I lost my job after the third ride so I've been more focused on finding employment than riding.

How many miles on your e-bike?

Hi Mr. Snowranger
My E-Bike gives 20miles per day. The only problem with E-Bike is the speed ,
It goes only maximum 40kms per hour. The Battery of the bike is average.

About 5000 miles total over almost 3 years. I ride 50 miles/week unless it's pouring down rain.

Is this total miles on the E-bike or just miles using battery?

If that's about my bike, it's 5000 miles on the batterieS- I pretty much have the throttle pegged both ways on the commute. The first set lasted a year, the second is now approaching two years of daily use without any real signs of decay.

I have got 13,300km as today on super reliable Tidal Force IO step-through cruser.
All TF bikes have very reliable motor/controller built into motor hub/ .
It all depends HOW YOU TREAT your ride, ex. you don`t jump carbs like in regular MTB, beacuse weight of motor and battery, but still some people don`t get it.
On horrible Alberta roads hudge cracked and pot-holed no matter what you do ,even with pot holes and creaters avoidance still my TF gets quite beat up, that's why over 13,000km is so remarkable.
Imagine this bike on crack free roads?
I am on not original battery of course. I ditched front wheel-brick with obsolete NMH cells/30 of them!!/ and use 12 LifeBatt/BMI grey cells of Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry 3kg lighter which truly deliver 10Ah.
Bicycle electronics/minus electronics of original NMH batt/ works with no change, with smoothness and excellent regen so needed to save breakes and indespensible in wet and snowy weather.
