CONVERT YOUR BIKE
If you have a fully functioning bike but are on the look out for an electric bike (that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg) then a conversion could be your answer!
HOW IT WORKS:
This is one of the most cost effective ways to get your hands on an electric bike. By using your existing bike it also maximises what you already have and reduces the need to buy yet more things to fill up your garage.
STEP 1: Assessment
To make sure that the conversion kit will fit your bike we will need to have a good look at it. We can also discuss any additional parts and repairs that might be needed, or add-ons that you’d like whilst we’re at it.
We will adhere to social distancing at all times during the COVID-19 crisis. It may be easier for you to send some pictures of your bike initially so we can have a look in advance of picking it up.
STEP 2: Quote
The basic price of converting your bike to an e-bike is £625 (including motor, 11.4AmpHour battery, controller, fitting, service and 3 month check up). When we assess your bike we will have a look to see if it needs any extra work to get it roadworthy e.g. new brakes, tyres or gears. The additional costs for new parts will be included in the quote and we won’t do anything before you’ve given us the go-ahead! Scroll down form some tech specs...
STEP 3: Conversion
Although fitting a conversion kit can be done in a day, we will need to order the kits and wait for delivery. We will aim to get your bike back to you within 1-2 weeks of the initial assessment and we can pick up/drop off if you live locally (Ruthin area).
Postage is a little slower than normal due to COVID-19 so it might take a little longer than normal for the kits to arrive – we’ll do our best but please be patient!!
STEP 4: Support
We can offer ongoing support via phone, online or video calls (or face to face if you’re local) to answer your questions and make sure your e-bike continues to run smoothly. We are always very happy to hear your feedback, comments or problems, so don’t hesitate to get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org / 07521155623

Motor: We use Tongsheng TSDZ2 250 Watt 36 Volt mid-drive motors coupled with VLCD5 display screens. These motors are torque sensing rather than speed sensing which gives a more natural feeling when cycling. The motors are lightweight and compact. Spare parts are easily available allowing the motors to be repaired rather than thrown away.
Battery: The batteries we use are supplied to us directly from a highly reputable manufacturer. The batteries are fitted with either genuine Panasonic or Samsung cells, depending on the battery capacity. The cells are contained within high quality downtube mounted cases which are both lockable and removable.
