I read somewhere that the range of most e-bikes is vastly overstated by marketing departments of e-bike companies. Real world conditions can drastically reduce range. So why all the hype? You still didn’t answer my original question, other than to say you will pedal 10-15 miles. At what speed? Are you looking at two hours to get to the nearest outlet, and then sitting around for a few hours while your battery charges?
