Today, I ran my e-bike out of battery for the first time. Interestingly enough, the bike didn't actually turn off, but automatically moved the mode from "Eco" (light pedal assist) to "Off" (no pedal assist). The screen stayed on, telling me my MPH, etc, so clearly, the bike wasn't completely out of battery.
I continued to pedal with the screen on until I got home. I then plugged the bike into its charger.
Is this bad for the bike? I can't find information anywhere about this... even in the bikes manual, it says nothing about it.
I called the company that made the bike, and they seemed to be uncertain, but ultimately said it wasn't a big deal... they actually suggested it might be good for the bike to do this?
