Sorry im new to this. Is there a way to prolong performance time?

Yes, the silver rear part of the bike that holds the motor & rear tire. It "swings" as the rear shock compresses, thus a "swing arm"...

Ride time performance: To get more ride time, you need bigger batteries, but this equals more weight(you don't want), and more room(you don't have). There might be "better" batteries, but they probably cost a fortune. Ideas aproldan?

*A higher ratio(less top speed, but more torque/quicker acceleration) also gives longer ride time. I believe this is due to the motor requires less amps to "GO". Can you expand on this aproldan?

*But this is electric and batteries can only do so much, so you won't see drastic gains - no mater what you do.. If you want to ride all day,
I think you will have to go Gas... :-(
