25KM/h are the legal limits on assist set in some countries like the EU. I’m not sure of the conversion and am too lazy to look it up (am American) but a 17mph average is easily attained
My assumption is you want to cover 25 km in one hour. It is doable on a good e-bike. And no, you wouldn't average 35 km/h. A roadie would average 30 km/h on a road bike provided he was a fit person.Is that the general average speed of a trip that ebikes end up taking hills/elevations, turns, traffic into account?
At what battery consumption, Joe?a 17mph average is easily attained
It is the Ortlieb Vario backpack-pannier. As it is not a MIK solution, you would secure the tubes of your rack with a good soft tape where the hooks touch the rack.Does anyone know if it is possible to add the hooks/connectors to an existing backpack or another tip/trick? so that I can either hang it like a pannier on the rear rack or somehow add some sort of MIK plate to the backpack so that it can stow on top of the rack?
Thanks @dodgeman once I receive the bike, I will try and tie the peak design backpack with bungee cords. If it does not work, then I will buy Vaude eBack. It is 28L and has plenty of space for spare clothes, a padded laptop compartment and other pockets. I am looking into a lock now, helmet, MIK compatible trunk bag and grocery bag as well for personal commute to explore the city and supermarket trips. The Specialized Mode helmet looks good and is rated number 1 as the best urban city helmet according to the Virigina tech institute so would go with that.
I decided to go ahead with the Specialized 2022 Turbo Como 5.0 in black colour. I have paid the dealer $1000 refundable deposit and they reckon that at the most, it should be delivered by Feb 2022 which is ok with me as I will not need to use it to commute to work until end of March 2022 anyway. Really excited and looking forward to
