The following is a review from Darius, we sent a kit up to Darwin and he successfully installed it a couple of weeks back and is loving it.
“Hi, thought you might appreciate a success story. I will start by stating that after a month of riding with the mid-drive kit I still have a big cheesy grin from ear to ear. “Installation…EASY!” – I managed to install the mid-drive kit with little mucking around. I only installed the drive unit, battery and the computer and did not install any of the extra levers and doodads; I considered them a waste of time and handlebar real estate. I have been riding to work regularly, 22Km each way (44 per day), and would sum the experience up by saying “watch out for the fat bastard smashing it out and giggling like a little girl as he passes everyone, young fit folk included, on his now short ride to and from work”. The extra push from the mid-drive kit has given a 100kg 53 year old fat bastard the motivation to work back to ironman fitness again…OK not ironman but definitely slightly firmer old man. All hail the mid-drive kit!
