Really guys don't waste your money on eggrider. If you're going to throw a hundred bucks at tuning better to put that toward the controller upgrade. At most I would invest $10 in the programming cable if you want to tweak some settings but otherwise you're just throwing money away in my opinion.
I have been riding my CC for about 500 kms using the stock display (Bafang DP C18) and for about 1000 kms using the EggRider V2 and if I can help it I will never go back to the DP C18. This is for the following reasons:Really guys don't waste your money on eggrider. If you're going to throw a hundred bucks at tuning better to put that toward the controller upgrade.

Yes I agree. The EggRider display is way too small and I cannot read it with my polarized sunglasses. I need to use the dashboard on my cell phone and then the ride gets limited by the cell phone battery capacity. I hope they will address that shortcoming in a near future.Good points, I was speaking more in terms of being able to tune the motor so wouldn't get eggrider just for that, but if you value those other benefits it would be worth it. I prefer a larger display i can actually see with sunglasses that shows me voltage, watts, and speed. The DCP-18 does that better than any other display without having to resort to my phone.
Nice looking bike you got there, ha, cleaner than mine at the moment. My battery does drop 5% or more initially, more so if it's been resting after a full charge and quite normal I think. If I am pushing the bike hard it can also drop in big chunks, then recover somewhat after I take a break. I'm used to this from riding my Bafang BBS01 so doesn't concern me.
I am not sure why my range seems lower, but I like to ride faster so I think that is a factor. Thing's aren't so flat here either, so maybe there is more up and down than I realize. But lately I'm just not worrying about it as I don't need the range for my 20 mile errands and I still have 50% battery to throttle it up the steep 700' hill and get home with 20% left. I will probably get a spare eventually and that might highlight if my original battery is lacking, but I don't think so.
As far as rattles, I have always had some intermittent noises and couldn't figure out where they were coming from. I think the cranks might rattle a little. I notice it most when I go over bumps. I suppose it could also be the front and/or rear suspension, although my front suspension bikes don't make these noises. The battery doesn't seem to be loose and it doesn't make rattle when I shake it.
