The only somewhat meaningful spec provided is charge time... 4-6 hours but is that to assume an 80% depleted battery or a completely dead one? (which brings up the question, at what point is the motor ineffective, at 20% battery charge... at 10%? Or does the rider only get pedal assistance up to 10mph once the battery level drops to 50% charge?)
Top speed is supposedly 18mph... under what circumstances? Going downhill with a 40lbs rhesus monkey piloting?
Range is spec'd at 31 miles... is that traveling at 15mph with a 120lbs person doing most of the pedaling or a 180lbs person going all out without pedaling at the supposed top speed of 18mph?
All the specs stated are inter-related yet based on nothing concrete so like I said, the stats/specs are lacking. Unless of course you'd care to enlighten me as to how those stats correlate to someone like me. I'm ~6' 2" and 195 lbs... how far can I ride that bike and at what speed without pedaling?
