Hello Bosch e-bike users!
My name is Mike, and I'm a graduate student researcher at Portland State University, Portland, OR. Pleased to be here!
A fellow forum user and study participant thought it might be helpful to share this with you all, and I also reached out to Mitch H. for permission before posting here.
We are conducting a large-scale e-bike usage study with support from the National Science Foundation (USA). We are calling this effort the "Mobility by E-Bike" study, or "ME-Bike" for short.
The study is open to users who meet the following criteria:
- Over 18
- Live and ride in the United States
- Use a Bosch Intuvia or Kiox onboard computer
- Use an iPhone as their primary mobile device
- Use their e-bike for some utilitarian purposes (commuting, visiting friends/family, shopping, etc.) in addition to recreational purposes
We hope to be able to use what we learn from this study of typical e-bike use to better inform knowledge surrounding the potential of e-bikes to replace trips of other modes (car, transit, ride sharing, etc.) With this information, we can better understand the ability of e-bikes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
We look forward to receiving your application to participate in the study!

Best regards, and happy riding!
