Kit Installation


DIY Installation:

All of our conversion kits are designed to be fitted by the end consumer. We provide an in-depth installation manual with every kit which takes you through each step to an effortless conversion. There may be some tools required for the installation which are not included in our kits, so please check this beforehand to ensure you can install the kit straight away upon arrival. To simplify the conversion process though, we have compiled all the required steps into 10 short points to serve as a quick guide. Steps 1-3 are component removal, and steps 4-10 are installation of new kit.
  1. Remove the crank arms from the bike.
  2. Separate the bottom bracket from the bottom bracket shell.
  3. Disconnect the front derailleur if one is present. The chain will need removing to do this.
  4. Slide the motor into the bottom bracket, and tighten with included hardware.
  5. Attach the speed sensor onto the rear of the frame, and the magnet onto a spoke.
  6. Mount the controls onto the handlebars, including display and brake levers/sensors.
  7. Install the battery mount onto the frame (e.g. down tube). Secure battery mount and motor XT60 connectors together.
  8. Connect all necessary cables and manage the cable routing appropriately. If there is excess cable, do not cut it to shorten the length, be creative and find a suitable place to hide the wiring.
  9. Install the chainring onto the motor and refit the chain. If the chain didn’t previously have a quick link, it may be worthwhile installing one of those now.
  10. Finally fix the crank arms onto the square tapered spindle, and attach the pedals onto the crank arms.
