This is what an ebike owned by a person who works at an electric bicycle shop looks like. This beautiful ebike is owned by one of our own friendly Solarbike staff members. The Montari by AVANTI is perfect for a conversion, this one has been converted with a high powered 1000W rear hub motor, the slim 48V 10.5Ah Solarbike battery is all you need to power a high powered 1000W motor. Larger 48V batteries are also available for those who want both speed and range. This particular model has been equipped for speed, with range being a secondary consideration, achieving 42km/h just with the throttle, its easy enough to get up to 50km/h with gentle pedalling, with an approximate range of 20-25km..
The advantages of a conversion as opposed to just buying an electric bike, are conversions are infinitely more customisable, want to build an ebike for range, to get you through a long distance commute (80km)? Want something purely to get you from A to B in the minimum possible time without you sweating or getting all flustered, we can do that. Want something in between that offers both speed and range in equal balance, we can do that… Want to start with a small battery and motor, you can do that and then gradually upgrade your setup as you get a taste for power? Perhaps you already have a bike you really like and would like to get that converted over. With conversions the possibilities are endless.
