E-bike Conversions

Conversion service on hold... Again!

We source our Bafang motor kits and custom built e-bike batteries direct from a factory in China. We've sold out but can't get a resupply until "the situation at the border due to Brexit is clear". Most likely, we won't be in a position to do e-bike conversions until winter 2021.

Bafang mid-drive motor We love the Bafang mid-drive conversion kit. It turns your bicycle into an electric powered mean-machine.

We're impressed with the build quality, simplicity and performance of the system.

They fit a 'normal' bike. We will let you know if your ride is suitabile for a conversion. We make safe, dependable e-bikes.

Costs and process

If you're interested in converting your ride to electric, bring your bike down and we can check it over and advise you as to its suitability for an e-bike conversion.

As with any job we take on, we will discuss your requirements and provide a full quote before going ahead with any work. If the bicycle to be converted is in good condition then the cost of a conversion starts at around £900. If you're interested in converting your bicycle, please get in touch.
