Re: e-bike conversion kits

Jean Dollimore


One advantage of doing a conversion is that you continue using a bike that you already like.

I wasn’t able to do that with my little blue Moulton (AM7) because the bike was too old and the frame might have got damaged.

So I bought a similar bike (the TSR8 green one) and had an ARCC conversion. (A front wheel motor and a small battery and light weight)

Yes, Angela, I have had swytch for over a year now. Getting up to Hampstead and Highgate village is a doddle, and I've used it to go into the City yesterday and today. Happy to tell you more.
Best wishes

Please excuse the use of your so-informative mailing list for making a personal request.
Has anyone used an e-bike conversion kit, such as this?
If so, what's your experience? Would you recommend it, compared to getting a purpose-made e-bike?
As an ex-Camden cyclist, I only need help getting up Archway Road and Muswell Hill. I don't do long journeys.  
Many thanks,
