Electric bikes are becoming more and more popular day by day. Advancements in technology have made it easier to enjoy the electric feeling of riding a bike.
you do not have to buy an entirely new electric bike when there are
electric bike kits all over the place. With these kits, all you need is
your old, mechanical bike and a kit.
Now it is important to understand the kind of kit you need because there are several types. You can either choose a rear wheel kit, a front wheel kit or a kit with a battery. With this in mind, you avoid buying the wrong product for your bike.
What could go wrong if you purchased the wrong kit? The one obvious thing is that you will have wasted your money on something that never worked for you.
Secondly, the power delivery to your bike may feel uncomfortable, or your bike may not support it. Besides, if you buy a kit without a battery option, then you will need to get one, potentially doubling your costs!

It’s got a 7-Speed Pro Series cassette for easier climbing on those inclines, and a magnetic pedelec system to help when you feel like easing off the throttle and powering your bike manually. With a top speed of 28 MPH, you can get where you need to fast and get back without a single problem.
#2 ModWheel Complete 26 Inch 250w Electric E-Bike Conversion Wheel– Easiest Installation
While most electric bike kits are pretty easy to install (at least the ones on this list are), the ModWheel Complete 26 Inch 250w Electric Bike Kit Conversion Wheel is hands-down the simplest to install. Its battery is built right into the wheel’s hub and detaches easily for charging. There’s also no messy controller to mount so all you have to do is install the thumb throttle, install the front wheel, mount the cell phone carrier, connect about 4 plugs and you’re riding. Did we mention there’s a disc rotor on this wheel, too? By far, it has got to be the easiest electric bike kit we’ve ever installed.
#3 48v 1000W 26in Front Wheel FAT TIRE Electric Bicycle Electric Bike Motor Kit– Best Off-Road E-Bike Wheel
The 48v 1000W 26in Front Wheel FAT TIRE Electric Bicycle Electric Bike Motor Kit is exactly what you need to ride trails and paths
4. Street Legal Electric Bike Kit – Samsung Power 2.0
Featuring all of the greatness of its predecessor with some major upgrades such as a finely incremented thumb throttle, e-brake sensors so you can use your existing brake levers, matte black Dillenger hub and spokes, and most significantly: the greatly improved, high capacity Samsung battery system.
This geared hub motor is 100% unchanged from previous models, apart from the new decals and matte black finish. We’ve kept this design the same because out of the thousands of units sold all around the world over the last three years there has been zero failures, which in a stressful application such at this is nothing short of astounding. The geared hub motor is 350W (limited to 250W in UK, EU and AUS) and has more torque than you would ever require, no matter the size of the hill or the load on the bike. Waterproof, zero maintenance, quiet, freewheeling (doesn’t drag) and disk brake compatible. This hub motor has been so reliable and great to use that it has found it’s way into many of our new e-bikes. Due to the torque we recommend the ARC Torque Arm for this kit
The new Dillenger street legal kit is a great option for those looking to convert their every day bike into electric, where the finished product is a subtle conversion resembling a factory-made electric bike. The kit is made to universally fit any regular bike in 24″, 26″, 700C, 28″ or 29er (just check your tire sidewall for your wheel size). There’s no ‘tricks of the trade’ involved in installing this kit, it’s designed to be assembled by a total rookie. If you get stuck, you can always just give us a call for help! Because bicycle forks are made to fit industry standard bicycle hubs, this enables us to produce a motor and wheel that is capable of fitting any regular mountain bike, cruiser, BMX, commuter, tricycle or road bike.
