Have Bristol Bikes convert it to an electric bike. Conversions are best suited for mountain bikes and cruisers. Disc brakes are preferred.
Electric Bike Conversion Kits are prepackaged sets of components designed to fit on a normal bike and convert it into an Electric Bike. These kits make it easier for end-users to find compatible, functioning parts and purchase them all together. A kit can range from a complete system that includes all the small parts you need, to DIY kits that include only a few parts and leave the rest up to the user. Or, you can have your kit professionally installed by Bristol Bikes.
We can build you a custom electric trike or recumbant for a lot less than a manufactured ebike. Our etrike conversions have automatic pedal assist, as well as a throttle, and reverse! Prices for a completely assembled etrike or electric recumbant range from $1,800 to around $5,000.
Who's it for? This premium electric bike conversion kit system is for those that want the best of the best in performance, efficiency, weight, stealth and speed. Top speed is 28MPH! There is a 300lb total load limit so if you plan on more than that, look to a heavy-duty system.

Lithium batteries provide a high level of performance for the duration of each discharge (unlike seal lead-acid where performance is diminished 1:1 as the pack is emptied).Lithium batteries have a much higher power to weight ratio than lead-acid and 5-8 times the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0-100%). The lithium option costs more initially ,but over time, the "cost-per-cycle" is about half the cost of lead-acid. Lithium packs also require less care as they can be left partially charged, and do not require immediate charging after each use. All batteries MUST be properly cared for during storage.
Battery Choice: We offer 3 battery packs for this kit - the 9ah Li-Ion Shrink Wrapped battery is the lightest and smallest, at just 5.8lbs. The 20ah Li-Ion Shrink Wrapped battery is the longest lasting, with a 20-44 mile range.
