10 or more years ago, that meant rudimentary friction-drive units and the first wave of hub motors with big, heavy battery packs and limited range. Now, today's E-Bikes and Conversion Kits have little in common with those early examples.
We've had over a decade of experience selling electric-assist bicycles and installing aftermarket e-assist kits.
The newest wave of e-bikes feature mid-drive motors. Available as complete bikes only, their frames accept a drive unit in place of the bottom bracket shell and often have sleek downtube mounted batteries for an unparalleled clean aesthetic and neat, tidy OEM look. The assistance is smooth and seamless and they often have the most power, with some models able to provide electric assistance up to 28 MPH!
