The battery gets about 25 mi on high, 35mi on medium. (I'm assuming about 50 on low, but I haven't had a reason to use that setting)
I never ran the battery lower than 20%. I charge at work.

I get my estimates using miles ridden vs percentage left on battery. On high setting, I have about 30% charge left after a 17.5 mi ride. On Medium setting, I have about 50% charge remaining on 17.5 mi ride.

The only thing I needed to replace was the saddle. I have a Brooks Flyer that is my go to saddle. Some more handlebar sweep-back would be nice, but not necessary.
Good deal. I bet the sprung saddle smoothes out the aluminum frame and weight.
