Your favourite bike + an E-Bike Kit = A better E-Bike

What do I need for an E-Bike Kit?

1/ Bike

We will install E-Bike kit on most bikes with the exception of:

  • Vintage steel bikes
  • Carbon frames and/fork bikes
  • Bikes with poor brake system (bulldog callipers)

2/ Motor

Based on your preferences and your the bike you want to  several options are possible as far as motorisation:

  • Front wheel
    • Pros:
      • The simplest and cheapest set up
      • The easiest to install and remove
    • Cons:  
      • Potential skid on icy surface

  • Rear wheel
    • Pros:
      • Uncomfortable with the idea of having a motorised front wheel.
    • Cons:
      •  Stress on the spokes
      • Complexity of installation, cassette, freewheel...

  • Mid Motor
    • Pros
      • For performance and a better weight distribution
    • Cons:  
      • A lot of stress on the transmission
      • Most expensive
      • Less reliable.

3/  Battery

    • Frame battery is preferred for  most bikes due to availability and installation point.
  • Rack battery  could be hard to find
  • Bare battery will be installed in a bike bag. It is the least and easiest to install.   It is the least secure,  the battery will be an easy target for thieves if left on an unattended bike.
  • 4/ Components

    • A display that will show your battery level, speed…
    • A throttle that you can push to ride your bike like a motorcycle
    • A pedal assist sensor aka PAS that will sense you pedalling 
    • Brake sensors that will stop the motor when you apply the brakes.

    How to choose the perfect kit?


    This is where the team at Repair and Run takes over to ensure your needs are met and you have a safe and reliable ride once the installation is complete.


    What we will need from you:

    • A picture of your bicycle or  the make and model to allow us to determine your  bike can support the installation of an  to accept E-bike Kit 

    • Matching the power supply with your riding preferences.  Batteries range from 250w to 500w.   E-Bikes  in Canada are limited to a 500 W output and cannot travel faster than 32 km/h (20 mph) :
      • Flat, hills (more power and range needed with hills)
      • Distance (more range needed with longer distances)
      • Leisure/ sport/ commuting (will change power need)
      • Frequency of use (will change quality and range needed)
      • Speed needed (will change power need)


    Additional advantages of choosing an E-Bike Conversion Kit ?


    Electrifying your own bike has many advantages:
