e-Bike Conversion Kits - recommendations requested
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:26:32 AM »
Hey there.

I am looking to convert a couple of my bikes to electric. I am considering front hub more than the others (mid-drive or rear hub) and I am looking for recommendations of companies. I am aware that power and size of batteries are personal choice dependant upon the distance and style of riding, however, with so many companies out there, I'd like to deal with someone that comes recommended.

Looking forward to your suggestions and thanks in advance!

I can't help on the front hub question, but I can second the recommendation for LunaCycle. They have been really good to work with and more than once I have called them up and they sat on the phone with me for 30+ minutes talking over options and what would make sense for how I plan to use it.

I ended up going with the BBS-02 mid-drive like dustin.

That's great, thanks.

They have a Facebook page which supports what you are both saying.
