@skyman88 That's a good idea! Around here it damn near impossible to find a flat path that long but might hunt around the east bay for a bike path to try and stretch the XRs legs. Oh yeah aware of NMC vs LifePo4 thanks, just there are similarities regarding maintaining healthy cells, balancing and so on.
All and all I feel better reading the replies on here as I'm certain the stop sign slowdowns and slight his and such impact the 'real world' mileage vs the 'perfect world' conditions of 12-16 miles. Guess I got a little excited before buying it without thinking in regards to real world mileage =D
Now if only OW would integrate a swappable battery housing instead of having to lug around a huge brick to charge the thing that'd be next level, but I get the complexity in having part of the structural integrity being removable and adding a point of weakness to dirt / water /vibration might be an issue...oh well, can dream till then!
Thanks for the replies all
