What eBike performance level do you need to replace your car or motorcycle for transportation? Is the primary drawback battery range or bike speed? Or, would you never consider it.

Below is table for three speeds and distances that suit eBikes.

  1. 10 miles per day
    • 20, 28 or 35 mph
  2. 25 miles per day
    • 28, 35 or 45 mph
  3. 40 miles per day
    • 28, 35 or 45 mph
  4. Will only drive a vehicle for transportation

I wish I had a Grace One.15 like this:

I would do 20 miles a day at 35 miles per hour.

For commuting, a year ago I switched to my bike at 20 miles roundtrip / 20-25 mph. I still use the car in bad weather though.

Definetly. Injury also requires some fallback plan. I want to get rid of my gas car. So, the bus and train become my backups.
