* 36v system
* 10aH pannier battery

Claud Butler Tandem

Claud Butler TandemConverting tandems to electric can be tricky - especially when the frame is over 50 years old and it runs on a vintage wheel size. After discussions with the customer and a number of measurements and trials, we went for a slightly larger front wheel to make it compatible with the electric bike kit. The end result was a usable tandem that gave the extra power needed for hills.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w front hub motor on 700c wheel
* 36v system
* 9aH bottle battery
* LED display with 3 power settings
* Pedal assistance
* Throttle


Mongoose 1000w conversion

Mongoose 1000w conversionThis particular customer was looking for extra power to cope with the forest tracks so he opted for a 1000w rear hub conversion. The bike can be set to 250w for legal road use and then set to 1000w for offroad use. The system that we installed was a 48v electric kit with a 14aH frame battery.

The acceleration and speed when in 1000w mode was incredible. It was such great fun that we didn't really want to hand the bike back to the customer.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w / 1000w rear hub motor on 26 inch wheel
* 48v system
* 14aH frame battery
* LCD display with 5 power settings
* Pedal assistance
* Throttle


Lombardo 270 - 500w conversion

Lombardo 270 - 500w conversionThis is a 500w rear hub conversion. It's configurable between 250w (for UK road use) and 500w (for offroad use) and was built as a demonstrator model.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w / 500w rear hub motor on 26 inch wheel
* 9aH battery
* LCD display with 5 power settings
* Throttle

When using the bike on the 250w setting it acts like all other electric bikes, but on 500w there's a huge power surge which puts a massive smile on your face.


Dahon Folding Bike

Dahon Folding BikeWe'd already converted one bike for this particular customer when he asked us to convert his Dahon Folder.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w rear hub motor on 20 inch wheel
* 10aH battery
* Throttle

Along with new tyres and a bike service, the conversion was completed and the result is a usable folding electric bike.


Kingston Ladies Bike

Kingston Ladies BikeThis customer wanted an electric bike - or more accurately a red electric bike. So, having sourced a good quality red Dutch style bike we converted it to electric:

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w front hub motor on 700c wheel
* 10aH battery
* LED display with 3 levels of control
* Pedal Assistance
* Throttle

This bike had 5 speed hub gears as standard making it perfect to use as an electric bike. Needless to say that the customer was delighted with the bike (in fact she wrote a very nice article about us in her weekly newspaper column).


Dawes Mens Bike

Dawes Mens BikeThis Dawes mens touring bike was a cracking piece of kit - a very high quality bike that was great to ride. No wonder that the owner wanted to keep the bike and add electric power to help with the hills.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w rear hub motor on 700c wheel
* 10aH battery
* LCD display with 5 levels of control
* Pedal Assistance
* Throttle

We swapped the standard 9 speed rear gearset for a 7 speed freewheel to ensure compatability with the rear hub. The resulting 21 speed was more than enough when combined with the electric power.


Ladies Step Through Bike

Ladies Step Through BikeThis ladies step through bike was used for commuting and the electric power was needed to make the journey more enjoyable.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w rear hub motor on 700c wheel
* 10aH battery
* LED display with 3 levels of control
* Pedal Assistance
* Throttle

The bike itself was a relatively inexpensive model that was purchased by the customer from Halfords. The total price of the bike, including the conversion to electric, was considerably less than many of the standard electric bikes available in the UK.


Lombardo Ladies Bike

Lombardo Ladies BikeThis Lombardo Ladies bike made for a very neat and usable conversion. We installed a rear 250w motor and a pannier battery; pedal assistance with LCD control and a thumb throttle.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w rear hub motor on 700c wheel
* 10aH battery
* LCD display with 5 levels of control
* Pedal Assistance
* Throttle

The customer purchased this bike from us for touring the coast in the South of France.


Cube

CubeConverting this Cube trekking bike was quite a challenge, primarily because the bottom bracket wasn't of the square taper type that the kits are designed for. This particular bike had a compression style bottom bracket which meant that we had to modify the kit to fit. The results can be seen on the picture that the owner of the bike kindly sent to us - just to demostrate that getting to the parts of the Lake District that were not previously possible is now piece of cake with electric power.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w rear hub motor on 700c wheel
* 10aH battery
* LCD display with 5 levels of control
* Pedal Assistance with modfied sensor fitting
* Throttle

The bike itself had a lightweight frame and was a super bike - making it ideal to convert to electric.


Barracuda H26

Barracuda H26This is another bike that we sold out of before being able to list on the website. Hardly suprising that these bikes sold quickly given the quality of the final product. The specification of the bike was:

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w rear hub motor on 700c wheel
* 8aH battery
* LED display with 3 levels of control
* Pedal Assistance
* Throttle

The 700c wheels and road tyres made this a great commuting bike - all for £799 including the bike.


JumperTrek Mountain Bike

JumperTrek Mountain BikeWe converted a number of the JumperTrek mountain bikes with a 17in frame to electric. The intention was to list them on the website but we sold them before we had chance!! Hence, we've listed them here as example conversions.

The specification of the conversion was:
* 250w front hub motor on 26" wheel
* 8aH battery
* LED display with 3 levels of control
* Pedal Assistance
* Throttle

The bike had 21 gears with a twist shifter. The best comment that we had was that our conversion looked far better than a number of "factory branded" bikes that we had in our showroom. All for £699 including the bike


Giant Customer Conversion

Giant Customer ConversionIt's always nice to receive images of bikes that customer have converted themselves. Here you can see a Giant bike conversion.

* 250w front hub motor with 700c wheel
* LCD display
* 5 levels of pedal assistance
* Throttle
* 10aH pannier battery

* 250w front hub motor with 700c wheel
* LED display
* 3 levels of pedal assistance
* Throttle
* 10aH pannier battery

The bike was finished in time for the owner of the bike to take it to the Alps.


Trek Tourer

* 250w front hub motor with 700c wheel
* LCD display
* 5 levels of pedal assistance
* Throttle
* 8aH bottle battery (black to match the bike)

The bike itself was a lightweight touring bike with trigger shifters


PDQ Trike

PDQ TrikeThis was an unusual conversion but one that we keen to take on. The customer had a PDQ electric trike that was no longer working. We fitted a brand new 500w kit to the trike with an 11aH battery and a throttle.

* 11aH bottle battery, plus an additional battery as backup
* Throttle
* LCD display showing distance, speed and battery life remaining
* 500w Hub motor

The finished trike gave the user the ability to get back on the beach to walk the dogs and enjoy holidays once more.


Dahon Folder

Dahon FolderGood electric folding bikes are hard to come by - therefore what could be better than taking a good standard folder and making into an electric bike.

* Pannier Battery
* Pedal assistance
* LCD display (5 levels of assistance)
* 250w Rear Hub motor

This customer needed their folder and rather than buying a new ready made electic bike, went for the cheaper option to have their existing bike converted.


Trek Pilot

Trek PilotThis lightweight Trek Pilot was a cracking bike before the conversion, and with the addition of the electric kit it made it even better.

* Bottle Battery (9 aH)
* Pedal assistance
* LED display (3 levels of assistance)
* 250w Front Hub motor
* Carbon Forks
* Racing drop bars
* 18 speed with trigger shifters

This customer was a huge cycling enthusiast and entrusted his bike with us to convert. Once completed the conversion gave him a far better chance of keeping up with his triathlete son on bike rides!!


Claud Butler Hybrid

Claud Butler HybridThis Claud Butler bike was a super bike to start with and the owner decided to enhance it with a full conversion:

* Pannier Battery (10 aH)
* Pedal assistance
* LED display (3 levels of assistance)
* Throttle
* 250w Front Hub motor
* 18 speed with trigger shifters

Living near the Cumbrian border, this customer was looking for the electric power to help with the hilly terrain. We fitted the full kit, including Pedal Assistance and throttle, to make troublesome hills a thing of the past. Note the matching front and rear wheel - we respoked the motor onto the original wheel rim.


Apollo Mountain Bike

Apollo Mountain BikeWe converted this Apollo suspension mountain bike using a Cyclotricity kit:

* Pannier Battery (10 aH)
* Pedal assistance
* LED display (3 levels of assistance)
* Throttle
* 250w Front Hub motor
* Full Suspension
* 18 speed with trigger shifters
* Disc brakes

This particular customer was a keen cyclist but was finding that the hills were becoming hard work. After having been passed by an elderly chap on an electric bike, our customer decided the time was right to join the electric bike revolution and decided on a conversion of his mountain bike.


Carrera Electric Mid Drive Mountain Bike

Carrera Electric Mid Drive Mountain BikeWe converted this Carrera mountain bike using a mid drive crank kit to use as a demonstrator.

* Bottle Battery (9aH)
* Pedal assistance
* LCD display (3 levels of assistance) - centre mounted
* Throttle
* 350w Crank drive motor
* Front Suspension
* 24 speed with trigger shifters
* Disc brakes

We used a Bafang 8Fun mid drive kit to create this electric bike. It's an absolute hoot to ride and because of the crank conversion it's hard to tell that it's electric (although the bottle battery does give it away). There's lots of discussion over whether front hub, rear hub or crank drive electric bikes are the best and there are pros and cons of each. The best way of finding out is to come and try one!!


Pendleton Ladies Bike

Pendleton Ladies BikeHere's another example of a bike that has been converted by one of our customers. This is another excellent demonstration of what can be achieved with a bit of forethough and planning.

This is a Pendleton ladies bike that has been converted using a front hub motor, pedal assistance with LED display, throttle and a 10aH rack mounted battery. The customer has used cable wrap to make a neat wiring loom which makes the overall effect look just like a factory bike.

It just shows that converting your existing bike to electric is an affordable and practical way of owning an electric bike.


Python Rock Rear Hub Electric Bike

Python Rock Rear Hub Electric BikeYet another Python Rock electric bike conversion, but this time with a rear hub drive.

* Bottle Battery (9aH)
* Pedal assistance
* LED display (3 levels of assistance)
* 250w rear hub motor
* 18 speed with twist shifters

We've converted more Python Rock mountain bikes than we can remember but most have been front drive. This rear drive conversion works equally as well and was used for a while as our demonstrator model. The Python Rock is a very simple bike to convert and makes a great electic bike.


Touring Electric Bike

Touring Electric BikeThis bike is a classic - it's as tough as old boots and was of considerable age and use when it came into us. The customer already had an electric bike but wanted this bike converted because it would be considerably lighter.

* Bottle Battery (9aH)
* Pedal assistance
* Throttle
* LED display (3 levels of assistance)
* 250w front hub motor
* 18 speed with twist shifters

A few problems to overcome when fitting the kit to this bike, including a minor tweak to the front forks, but on completion the bike looked great, although still very well used!!


Indigo Step Through Electric Bike

Indigo Step Through Electric BikeThis Indigo Step Through bike was converted to electric by one of our customers, having purchased a kit from us.

* Seat Post Battery (7 aH)
* Pedal assistance with LED display (3 levels of assistance)
* Throttle

Converting a bike can be quite straightforward, but taking the care to make a really neat job can be both frustrating and time consuming. However, this DIY project shows just what can be done with some care and attention - a very neat conversion.

In fact, the job was so well done that a relative asked him to convert their bike for them for which we supplied a second kit.


Electra Townie Electric Bike

Electra Townie Electric BikeWe converted this bike to electric for a customer who wanted to be able to ride for longer distances and take the hills on without worrying about getting to the top.

* Pannier Battery (10 aH)
* Pedal assistance with LED display (3 levels of assistance)
* Throttle

A really nice bike to start with, this was enhanced by fitting front drive electric bike kit. The Electra Townie was a special import into the UK and has an extended frame which made fitting the kit slightly tricky. However, the end result was pleasing for both the customer and our team.


Boardman MX Race Electric Bike

Boardman MX Race Electric BikeThis bike was built for a customer who wanted an electric bike for the daily commute. The specification of the bike is:

* Lightweight alloy frame
* 700c wheels
* Disc brakes
* Front suspension
* 27 speed trigger shifters
* Pannier Battery (10 aH)
* Pedal assistance with LED display (3 levels of assistance)
* Throttle

This was a particularly difficult conversion due to issues with the front wheel rim; compatibility with the throttle and shifters; bottom bracket speed sensor; and proximity of the motor with the brake calliper adjusters. However, the end result makes for a really good electric bike with all of the features that the customer asked for.


Indigo Verso 3 Electric Bike

Indigo Verso 3 Electric BikeThis bike was built for a customer who wanted an electric bike for the daily commute. The specification of the bike is:

* Lightweight alloy frame
* 700c wheels
* Disc brakes
* Front suspension
* 21 speed trigger shifters
* Seat post battery (7 AH)
* Pedal assistance with LCD display (5 levels of assistance with bike computer)

This particular bike makes for a really good conversion. The main point is that it's a really good bike to start with that uses top quality components. The disc brakes and 700c wheels make it ideal for the daily commute.


Python Rock Electric Bike

Python Rock Electric BikeThe Python Rock makes an excellent mountain bike style conversion. The twist shifters result in a tidy handlebar installation with the throttle and display neatly mounted and in comfortable reach.

* Lightweight alloy frame
* 26in wheels
* V brakes
* Fixed fork front suspension
* 18 speed twist shifters
* Seat post battery (9 AH)
* Pedal assistance with LED display (3 levels of assistance with bike computer)
* Throttle

We have a number of customer's who purchased this conversion from us, mainly for the daily commute. Despite it's mountain bike styling and tyres it's a bike that's very well suited to tow paths and road use. (We actuallly have one of these bikes for our own use - it's great when we need to nip out of the office and is ideal for short or long rides).


Electric Bike Conversion

Electric Bike ConversionThis particular bike was unusual in the sense that it was already an electric bike when it came to us. To be more accurate it was a faulty 24V Chinese import electric bike with lead-acid batteries. Having assessed the bike and talked it over with the customer, the decision was taken to remove the existing electric components and install a new 36V Lithium based electric bike kit.

If you look carefully you'll see that the rear wheel was reused and the old motor has been left in place (but disconnected).

The bike was fitted with a front motor; pannier battery; LCD controller and throttle. Since the kit was much lighter than the old lead acid battery kit and suffice to say that the customer was pleasantly suprised at how quick the bike picked up speed.


Carrera Trekking Bike

Carrera Trekking BikeThe range of Carrera bikes offers an affordable route into cycling and they also make good electric bike conversions. We converted this bike for a customer who had cycled for many years but was starting to find it tough to cope with a traditional push bike. The specification of the bike was:

* Lightweight alloy frame
* 700c trekking wheels and tyres
* 21 speed
* Pannier battery
* LCD display (5 speeds and bike computer)
* Throttle

The bike in it's standard trim comes with trigger shifters and integrated brake levers. The problem with this is that it's not currently possible to fit the auto-shutoff brake levers and the throttle becomes hard to reach. After discussing this with the customer we decided swap the shifters for Shimano twist shifters. The result was an easy to use electric bike that was ideal for the customer's needs. The image shows the before and after pictures of the bike.
