Disappointed in power usage with this set up, even when doing less than 30 mph my Trogans are draining faster than ever before. Dropper 18% in 5.2 miles. I know faster will use more battery but come on....that's a lot.
That doesn't make any sense to me. The major drain on the batteries is when you're going up hill or carrying a heavy load...not speed.

Just think when you ride a bicycle at high speeds on a flat surface. It doesn't take much energy to coast and barely much more to accelerate. But when you go up a hill, you start sweating and huffing/puffing...or if you're towing a baby carriage behind you. It truly is no different.

Make sure your batteries are truly fully charged and the water level is good.
