Transitioning from a conventional bike to an ebike offers a myriad of advantages, from personal health improvements to contributing to a sustainable environment. However, the process of converting your bike to an ebike begins with assessing its compatibility based on the electric bike bottom bracket size and electric bike motor styles. It’s crucial to confirm these aspects before delving into the choice of an ebike conversion kit. Additionally, familiarising yourself with the legal requirements with regard to ebike power and throttle speed in your state is beneficial to the selection process.
Beyond that, choosing the right conversion kit is heavily dependent on your specific usage and riding requirements. Terrain, distance, frequency of use, and any special needs play a significant role in this decision-making process. Let’s explore how these usage factors influence your ideal conversion kit.
For daily commuting, a lightweight and easily installable kit is key. Opting for a low-power motor kit suits these needs perfectly. The Bafang 36V 250W (BBS01B) Mid-Drive Conversion Kit comes highly recommended for such requirements. Its 250W mid-drive motor is specifically designed for flat roads, making it an ideal fit for commuting within the city.
Notably, this kit also serves well for fitness and leisure purposes, catering to a versatile range of biking needs.
When it comes to off-road biking and conquering steep hills, the focus should be on motor power, ideally exceeding 350W. The Bafang 48V 750W (BBS02B) Mid-Drive Conversion Kit is crafted with the specific intent of not only facilitating effortless mountain climbs on your ebike but also extending the lifespan of both the motor and battery.
For those embarking on extended biking journeys, it’s crucial to have a durable battery that endures lengthy rides without adding excessive weight. Any of our Polly Downtube or Polly Hailong batteries perfectly meet these criteria.
If your focus is on achieving higher speeds, we would suggest you consider the Bafang 48V 1000W (BBS02B) 68mm Mid-Drive Conversion Kit. To help put the difference of speed in context, the 500W facilitates speeds of up to 38 km/h, while the 1000W allows for faster travel at 45 km/h.
You can also mix and match different conversion accessories based on your requirements to better customise your ebike based on your needs. Whether you’re seeking enhanced power for conquering rugged terrains or a battery with extended endurance for long-distance journeys, the choice is yours.
The installation of these kits is straightforward and user-friendly, with several YouTube tutorials available, providing clear, step-by-step guidance for a hassle-free setup.
