So shortly after I started my ride today the front derailleur stopped working. An hour later the battery died fully. That was an hour of constant rolling terrain, so lots of shifting. Looking back from when I first installed the batteries, I got 27 hours of ride time. I never charged the batteries when I got them - I was just too anxious to get it all wired up and ride the bike. I will get a full charge on them this time and report back in a couple months on the hours of ride time from a full charge - if I take it that far that is!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
