Not everybody can afford a brand-new electric bike, so converting a traditional bicycle is a practical alternative. The exact price of a good quality electric bike conversion kit depends on what you’ll use the bicycle for and the kind of motor you choose.
Buying a Battery Is a Separate Purchase
Remember that you’ll also need to buy a battery. What kind of battery do you need? This depends on the capacity, measured in watt-hours or amp hours to give you the battery range, and the voltage, usually 36 V and 48 V.
All you need to do is follow a few simple steps to fit the various components on your bike to complete the conversion. The components are:
- The battery and battery holder
- An LCD display with a remote controller
- Motor cut-off levers (option)
- Wiring looms
- A throttle (option)
- The electric motor
- An E-bike controller (normally built in other parts)
- A charger
To convert your bike, different e-bike kits need different ways to be installed. The easiest kit to convert your bike is our front wheel e-bike kit, you just need a few minutes to take off your front wheel and then put our front wheel back, and then do some settings. For the rear wheel kit and mid-drive kits, you need to dismantle the cranks, pedals and bottom bracket (for mid-drive kit only), put on the wheel or mid-drive motor, mount the battery / LCD display/Throttle, connect all parts and put back the chain crankset. We provide instruction manual.
