Ok so we have a lot of different kinds of bikes here right? Well, even the venerable standard bicycle has evolved with us ..
An e-bike is a bicycle with an electric motor to help you along. … An e-bike motor works by automatically switching on the (quiet) motor when you pedal. There are two major different types of motor: motors that are in the wheel hub, and motors that are in the crank. There are a few others out there but mostly these are the kind you’d encounter.
Class 1 eBikes are just like regular bicycles but with a little bit of added assistance so you’ll need to pedal at all times to keep the bike moving. … Class 2 eBikes don’t require you to pedal and feature a throttle which can be a lever or a ‘twist-and-go’ system. Class 3 eBikes have both and can be used in either mode, but in Texas they are required to use a speedometer and don’t go over a maximum speed!

So, how easy it it to convert your bike to an e-bike? Obviously that will depend on what your bike is, and what you’re fitting to it. Is it difficult? Well, not usally –but if you’re starting from scratch you’d probably be better off entrusting the job to your local bike shop (like us!) Mostly it’s a case of having the right tools, and knowing which way things unscrew. Fitting the brake levers and throttle, can be time consuming and require some additional know how to make right. We can do most conversions within 3-4 shop hours of time. More complicated system or additional customer requests can add more time. We’ve been able to build conversions light enough to put on a rooftop or whi have hundreds of miles of endurance. Come talk to us, bring your bike and let us look
