I just went for my first ride yesterday on my brand new Rush Cty Speed. I calibrated it and bedded the brakes first. My Brose display started at 115 mile range, within 15 miles it showed I had 22 miles left and I was riding mainly in Comfort mode. The mileage remaining stayed about the same for the next 15 miles. The green battery indicator was down 1 bar when the display said I only had 22 miles left. When I go home my green battery indicator showed I had half a battery left after 30 miles. The remaining miles showed I had 22 miles left. Can anyone shed some light on their experiences? I have a Reiss and Muller City Commuter as well with the same basic set up. In three years I have never had an issue with the Bosch controller giving me false information. Range anxiety Help please.

battery range on the display is not accurate as reported by many, better to use the button on the battery to determine range remaining. I ride in tour 80% and 60 to 80 mlles is the range I get with room to spare...

Thank you so much for the follow up. I figure there has to be some sort of reboot. I am going to contact Serial 1 to see what they say. I contacted Brose who redirected me to a dealer which there are none in my market. Brose has to have studied the leader Bosch before trying to compete. Stay tuned, hopefully more will chime in.
Thank you

Question have you calibrated the Enviolo hub? I’m not sure it’d make a difference but it can’t hurt. Range anxiety sucks and for sure no one wants to pedal a 60 Lb bike. I look at how many miles I’ve ridden and percentage of battery life remaining to predict how much further I can ride.

What percentage of battery power is your bike set at for that tour mode? I’d never get that many miles on my bike but it’s a step-thru with the smaller battery. I try to ride eco set at 25% for the most part but it’s lumpy here and I do have to use tour and super mode some and occasionally boost for the bigger steeper lumps. I can get maybe 30 miles tops and I’d almost be out of battery at that point.

Yep, the varying description of range gven by your Rush City is something I have also experienced on my 2021 Rush/City. On a different subject, energy consumption can be customized in each rider mode. It allows you to check the percentage at which Comfort mode saps power from the motor and adjust it to alter how much energy is consumed by the battery. As a reminder, charging Serial One's e-bikes is also time consuming. Their support section of the website states, charge 3.5 hours for 75%, and 6.6 for 100%. One positive reasuring Serial One characteristic, is that if the ride mode rocker switch is actively utilized to conserve energy traversing hilly terrain, it extends the range of the bicycle. The most range I have gotten is up 79 miles. That is riding along a gradual increase in altitude up hills and through intermediary flats switching between Eco, Tour and Sport mode on Generation 1 bikes. Nowadays, as the capcity of my Bose Trip computer's range predictablity degrades, I choose to disregard it and focus on the battery level to determine how much range is left. If I use Tour and Sport mode only, I get no more than 36 to 40 miles to a 100% charge. If you are interested in customizing ride mode electric assist, tap your Reset button on the trip computer and scroll down and select Settings: then System: and finally Custom Assistance to view and customize energy consumption on ride modes. The 2021 Rush/City factory settings are: Eco is 12%, Tour is 25%, Sport is 50%, and Boost is 100%.

I have my Tour set at 35%, I try not to use the other levels often, that setting gives me just enough assist to cover medium inclines, I have my sport set at 80% for hill climbing, very seldom do I use boast set at 100%. Those settings work for me and the roads and trails I ride.

Hello, I agree that under most circumstances Tour is the optimal riding mode.
