As of June 2017 we have decided to stop offering conversion kits. We will continue to support the products we have sold, but we will no longer offer kits for sale.
It has always been our position that it’s better to buy a complete bike that was built from the ground up to be an electric bike rather than convert a bike that was not intended to withstand the additional forces an electric motor will add to a bike.
I’m not saying that converting your bike is a terrible idea, there just might be a better idea. Below are some questions you should consider before deciding to convert your existing bike.
- Is there an alternative purpose built electric bike on the market currently?
- Can my bike hold up to the additional power of an electric motor?
- Is the braking equipment sufficient enough to support the additional weight and speed of the bike?
