Since purchasing my electric bike (Solar Bike NUTCASE) 6 weeks ago I have travelled 1000 kilometers to and from work. The round trip is approximately 26 kilometres depending on the route I take. With the 500 watt motor I recharge at work. With minimal wind the battery handles it well but with head winds I need to put in quite a lot of effort and in my state of fitness this is hard. Yesterday I had someone ask if I had lost weight. He is the first person to do so. Without a big change in diet I have lost weight and had to buy new jeans. To help with the head winds, I have since fitted another battery and with Matt’s help put them into relay. I only turn on the second battery when head winds are strong or if I pushed myself hard the day before. My fitness is gradually increasing with this method, instead of pushing myself too hard, as at my age this could cause me health problems. If you are thinking of purchasing a e-bike I thoroughly recommend Matt from Solar Bike.
