Steve here's a link to my report on the first month. My riding is paved paths for now, cruise at about 17-18 mph, freq stops/slowdowns for sightseeing. Pretty satisfied so far but still trying to work out/tweak a few accessories. I do think the rack sucks, didn't pay attention to it until I started trying to hang things.I know you have not had it long but how satisfied are you with that bike?
good review ... I would swap those grips for some Ergons. I had similar grips to yours on a bike ,and they decomposed after 3000 miles anyway. Then a second battery in your rack bag might come in handy on those long trips. Please give us a long term update in the future.Steve here's a link to my report on the first month.

It helps to track the bike wear components, and your bike experiences by logging your cycling miles in a blog. I use bikejournal: https://bikejournal.com/home.aspBTW, I had to replace the LED on my Pedego under warranty because the USB port wasn't working, so I lost those miles on my odometer... my new LED just says 275 miles!!! Oh well. The nice part is that my old one was pretty scratched up (from me turning the bike upside down before I realized the display was at risk), and the new one looks great.
I've had my Rad Rover since March and have put almost 400 miles on it. May has been rainy so I haven't been able to get out as much as i'd like.My 2014 Pedego City Commuter has almost 5000 miles on it. The only problem I've had is the lcd odometer, it stopped counting at 4100 miles, and switched itself into the metric mode of counting and I can't get it changed back. The battery is starting to lose capacity now, but it works fine and I'll use it for shorter rides. I just ordered a new 48 volt 15 ah to replace my 48 volt 10 ah. I hope to get another great summers worth of riding in, and now I can go for longer trips.
I'm curious to see how many miles people are putting on their ebikes?
The coldest temperature in which I rode the CCX was 31ºF ; At times I encountered some precipitation. I never attempted to ride unless the roadway was clear of ice and snow. The CCX is a fast ride and averaging speeds over 18 mph can be uncomfortable. The biggest factor preventing me from Winter commuting was windchill.Did you ride it in the snow? I'm curious about performance in cold snow conditions. I would like to bike in the winter if possible.
