Electric Bike Conversion Kit
If you are thinking of turning your standard bicycle into an electric bike you will need an electric bike conversion kit which can be found across new and used categories. Electric bike parts are also available for spares and repair such as controllers, batteries and motors.
Electric bikes are a clean and green method of transportation. Offering speed and convenience, eBikes are popular choices for eco-conscious commuters, young professionals and college students who find using electric bikes a preferred alternative to buying a car or relying on public transport.
Most electric bike conversion kits offer multiple power levels and are engineered to fit various sized wheel frames. Before selecting your electric bike conversion kit, it is important to decide on what level of performance will suit your needs. If your daily commute consists of mainly flat roads, a smaller motor will suffice. However, if you are riding off-road and up hills, a more powerful motor and controller will be required.
There are many electric bike conversion kits available which can cater to the exact specifications that you are looking for. A standard electric bike conversion kit comprises four parts; the battery, controller, motor and throttle, with all parts designed to be easily attached to the bicycle.
Using the components supplied in the electric bike conversion kit, the battery and controller will simply bolt onto the frame or bike rack. The motorcycle grade motor is typically encased in the hub of a wheel and the throttle slides over the end of the handlebars. All new electric bike conversion kits include a manual with DIY instructions for easy installation and fitting.
In addition, electric bike conversion kits can enable those with knee problems or other mobility issues to get back on two wheels as an eBike will require considerably less effort than conventional, manually-pedalled bicycles.
