This is a long vid of a ride yesterday. Ride was second ride on a battery charge. The entire ride was in ECO mode.


Here are the highlights:

1. 0:00 - 2:00 A look at the bike and me
2. 3:10 - 3:55 groomed trail
3. 5:50 - 6:29 compare display to GPS speed
4. 8:00 - 14:55 paved bike path
5. 14:55 - 25:00 street riding
6. 25:00 - 25:35 try to get my Land Rover maintenance guy to try out the bike - he was not there so salesman talked to me
7. 29:20 - I spot a couple of road bikes, ask them if I can follow along...ride with them and ask them if they want to try the stormer...no luck again - and I asked several times...lol
8. 33:00 - 35:00 guy gets up on his pedals up a small hill to loose me - :). Then asks me if this is a battery bike.
9. 40:00 - 40:45 Drop of a curb which didn't have a ramp...got to try out the disc brakes with my mass. It was almost a wreck.
10. 43:15 -44:45 asphalt bike path
11. 44:45 - 57:12 gravel ride...repurposed train track
12. 102:13 - 102:39 compare display to GSP speed
13. 106:05 THE WEIGH IN...damn I need to go for another ride :-(

any thoughts?

Here is todays ride. Very similar to the above with no gravel.

I figured out how to sync my cadence and heart rate monitors to the camera. This is a good video for conversations about if you get a workout on an ebike. My heart rate climbs to 162 on one of the hills. There is a little error in the numbers but viewed as a whole I think you get a good idea.

Camera: Garmin Virb Elite
Cadence Sensor: Wahoo Speed and Cadence
Heart Rate Monitor: Vivosmart HR -Wrist band with optical sensor

Nice videos, Vincent. Interesting to watch!

Loves the scenery in your area. Your Platinum seems adapted well to suit your need, making a good bike even better. Those individuals you offered a testdrive dont know what they missed !
