My electric bike is amazing. I got this classic bike from the Glen Parker bike shop in Nedlands and put the Solar Bike 500W complete conversion kit on it. The bike is very fast and I only need to give myself occasional electric power boosts on the flat. I use the throttle full power on most hills and with a bit of pedalling on nearly any hill my speed will rarely drop to below 30km/h. My average speed on most journeys is between 30 – 40km/h. I’ve had it about 6 months now and haven’t had any electrical problems at all. The only small issue was that the nuts holding the battery rack onto the bike had a tendency to come loose. Some Lock-tight has fixed that issue. I have ridden it just over 40km on a single charge without it running out. It’s incredibly convernient as I work in the city and ride about 12km each way daily, I use it for about 90% of my trips under 20km as it’s fun, cheap, faster than any other mode of transport, healthy and much better for the environment than driving. All up it has exceeded my expectation in every regard.
Sincerely, Christian Wesse.
