The DREADNOUGHTs have arrived just in time for summer. This is our electric Fat Bike. With wide 26 x 4″ tyres you can ride more or less anywhere.

This ebike features a suspension fork, 36V 14Ah Samsung lithium ion battery integrated into the frame, internal cable routing, hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano Alivio gear set, integrated lights and carrier rack. It’s a top of the line street-legal fat bike. Perfect for a ride on the beach. More information here.
The new improved ROADRUNNER ebike has just arrived into Australia. Featuring a sleek frame with the battery integrated into the down tube, internal cables, wider 27.5 x 2.4 inch Schwalbe Super Motor tyres and a bunch of extras this is a fantastic electric bicycle. The high capacity Samsung 500Wh battery will give an exceedingly great range if you run on throttle or pedal assist mode. This is a hybrid bicycle that is designed for speed and comfort. It’s suitable if you are a rider intent on regular riding to work and back for years to come. The rear hub Bafang motor is nearly indestructible and the Alivio 9 speed rear gear is very smooth. Please come in for a test ride in Fremantle at 31 Cantonment street. More information is available here.
The Olive has been a very popular step-through ebike around the Fremantle area so we’ve added to the size range to include a 24″ model. This bicycle suits people around 5’3 (161cm), plus or minus 5-10 cm. It was proving particularly difficult to find an electric bicycle that people on the slightly smaller side could ride comfortably so we designed this one for that height bracket. The Shimano 9 speed Alivio gear set is great and hydraulic disc brakes help you stop quickly if needed. The battery is from Samsung and has a 36V 14Ah capacity so will give an exceedingly long range. You can get power with either the pedal assist system or the throttle. It comes complete with a rear rack, kick stand, integrated front and back lights and an optional front basket. This bicycle rides fantastically and is well worth taking for a test ride if you are struggling to find a small top end electric bicycle. It costs $2590. Please come into our shop at 31 Cantonment street, Fremantle to take a look.
Please come in and visit our new shop as our move is now complete. Located at 31 Cantonment Street, Fremantle. Our speciality is and always has been electric bicycle conversion kits but we also stock a range of nice commuter-friendly factory made electric bicycles from Merida, Lekker, Avanti, Valkree and Norco. We look forward to seeing you soon 🙂
We’d like to thank all our customers over the last 6.5 years at the Woolstores shopping centre in Fremantle. The shopping centre is going to be demolished and rebuilt in the coming year so our time here has come to an end. We are looking for a nice new shop currently in close proximity so don’t worry about all your electric bicycle needs in Fremantle.
We are trying to offload a few bikes so every week we aim to discount a certain few models. We are starting this week with offering $500 off the higher end mid-drive bicycles having either the Shimano, Bosch or Bafang mid-drive motors. These include a Gazelle, a Kalkhoff, a Lekker and a Norco model. Please come in for a final visit if you have time.
This is a Merida speeder bicycle that has been converted with a simple conversion kit. The bicycle is a flat-bar road bike that is extremely common for commuters that want a balance of speed and comfort. The bicycles retail for roughly $700 to $1000 depending on choice of gears and brakes and are ideal for people wanting a fast bike suitable for conversion.
Here, we have installed a rear hub motor and a cylindrical lithium ion battery. The system can be run with a throttle only, a pedal assist only system or a combination of both throttle and pedal assist function. This is the KD51C display, it is a neat display that allows you to have up to 9 levels of pedal assist power.
If you have your own flat-bar road bike, or similar, then it is well worth considering installing a conversion kit on it. It allows fast and comfortable electric bike commuting and can be fully customised to your riding desires.
It is hard to find the right dual suspension bike to convert to electric. Numerous problems, space in frame for a battery, suitable bottom bracket if wanting a mid-drive, non-thru-axles if you want a mini-motor. In our time, we’ve come across a few suitable bikes but they are few and far between. This is the Giant Trance X1 that a customer brought in for conversion and is one of the few that are suitable for either a mid-drive motor or a rear hub motor. In this case, the customer chose a small mini-motor and the 14Ah Tiger Shark battery mounted in the frame. It works a treat!

Every now and then we get a bike come in for conversion that isn’t able to fit the battery within the triangle of the bike frame. This was one such case. In general, the handling is better if you can use one of the tube or tiger shark batteries that fit within the frame but if you can’t then the best option is to mount it on the carrier rack. If putting the battery on the back then, then it’s good to avoid a rear hub kit as well because it becomes quite back heavy. A front hub kit is ok on steel rigid forks but not suited to a suspension fork. This leaves the mid-drive kit as the best option and this is what we used here. The bike came together really well. Owner very happy.
This was a beautiful old Peugot racing bike that has been kept in very fine condition all its life. The owner was super keen to make it electric. We were required to convert it to a flat bar due to the owner wanting to have a throttle and they are not compatible with a drop-bar. He opted for a mid-drive Bafang conversion kit and the large battery to offer a great riding range. It’s certainly quick on the road and he was extremely pleased with the result.
Please come and visit us at our Fremantle electric bike shop if you’re interested in a conversion to your existing bicycle or if you are looking for some information or test-riding of our range of electric bikes.
