We’re slowly becoming experts on the best bicycles to convert at our bicycle shop and we’ve opted to set up for a special sale the APOLLO SHADOW (full specs here). It’s a really good Australian bicycle that came out for a while with a Nexus 7-speed internal hub gear. It really keeps the bicycle very simple with no derailleur and is extremely robust. The conversion kit went on great, we tried both with the rack battery and the Panasonic tube battery and the tube was obviously better in terms of handling and light weight. We have just a few in stock and we hope to able to sell them to locals around Perth. The range with light pedalling will be about 30-40km and its speed is around 28km/h. Cost is about $1750.
Please come into the Perth Electric Bicycle store if you’d like to take one for a test ride. We’re sure you’ll be pretty impressed.
