Customer Reviews

This bike is super sweet it rides really nice. I live out in the desert so there’s lots of rocks and gravel not a lot of streets to ride on, so this is perfect for me and it also snows big time in the winter and its killer in snow. The components are so perfect the hydraulic brakes stop so smoothly. The take off assist speeds is awesome. I suppose if I road on the street more often I want something with maybe a 3 inch tire but for where I’m at this E-bike is perfect. I have taken it to the city and I loved it just as much. I did lots of research on this actual product before I purchased you can go look at reviews for all kinds of E-bikes, but this one seems thy put it all on this E-bike. It had the most compliments all around than any other E-bike at this price range or for the style. Any E-bike with this quality would be more around five grand, so Buy one you won’t be disappointed. and it comes with a sweet rack. I can do 40 miles on a charge no problem.

I bought the basket kit for the front, it works as designed and looks rugged. What it lacks is a light mount kit and perhaps a wooden insert in the bottom as other bikes have one. If it had those it would be a 5 star.

Deb actually bought the new Troxus for me as a gift. So far, so good! I’ve only ridden it three times, but had a broad smile on my face each time. We have a paved over railroad bed trail within 50 yards of the front door, and we have traveled to the next town north, about 11 miles one way, and it was super! I am in my sixties, and I am being mindful of the weight of the bike, and the effects of inertia, so I’m taking it easy in my break in period. It’s been so much fun!

Very solid and comfortable bike. Every time I go for a ride, I receive compliments on the “Blue” Explorer. Awesome bike so far.

V Samsung SUPER SLIM BATTERY AND REAR RACK

The battery is an easy slip in and slip out battery and comes with a key to lock it in place once it is in the rear rack. The rear rack is also a super light alloy rack and comes with the necessary brackets and fittings to fit onto your own bike. Samsung 48v battery gives you an incredible amount of power on hills.

The picture on the right is a clearer picture of the pedal assist console. The middle button is for on/off power ( simply turn it off and ride your bicycle as a normal bike at any time ). The up and down arrows are how you control the level of power you need. Level 5 is the highest and is what you would use on the steepest of hills. There is also thumb throttle included which is great for steep hills when you need that bit of power just to get you going.

MID DRIVE MOTOR E-BIKE KIT

In addition to hub motor kits we have also developed a mid-drive e-bike motor kit. Chilli Power which is available in 500w and 1000w.

Mid motors fit on a bicycles Bottom Bracket area between the left and right pedals and drive the chain rather than hub motors that directly drive the wheels.

Take an electric bike on a plane: Dealing with the battery!

Wouldn’t it be great to take your electric bike on a plane while you travel? Depending on where you plan to go, you can tour further and faster around your holiday destination, climb those steep hills to a great view point. pack in some longer day trips, and even avoid some of the car travel and see the countryside in a whole new way.

The main limitation in taking your electric bike on a plane is taking the battery. Airports and air carriers have strict limitations on the size and capacity of batteries taken on board a plane – whether through carry on or checked baggage. Battery capacity, or Watt-hour (Wh) rating, is generally limited to less than 100Wh to be allowed on board.

Batteries may also be allowed on board with watt-hour (Wh) capacity of between 100-160 Wh with prior air carrier approval. However, most electric bike batteries are larger than this, in the range of 300Wh to 600Wh and will most likely not be allowed on a plane. There are however a few options that you have when planning to fly with an ebike, and still have power at your destination.

This article will go over the following strategies and tips to take your electric bike with you while flying internationally.

  • Traveling with batteries on a plane – the basics and a few more resources
  • How big is your current Battery – calculating the watt-hour (Wh) rating
  • My Battery is too big to fly with, now what?
  • Bring a few smaller batteries with you
  • Shipping your battery to your destination
  • Renting a Battery at your destination

Traveling with Batteries on a plane

There are numerous rules and regulations related to air travel with batteries. Most batteries that travelers take with them are safe and allowed for air travel. These batteries generally fall under 100Wh rating and would include mobile phone, cameras, and original laptop computer batteries.

The next rating size for batteries in regulations is 100-160Wh ratting. which would include extended life batteries for laptops and AV equipment. Batteries in this range have some restrictions and generally require air carrier approval before being allowed on board. Batteries greater than 160Wh require air carrier approval.

Further battery information available from TSA and FAA:

How to calculate the watt-hour (Wh) rating of a battery

You’ll need to find out the watt-hour rating of your ebike battery to determine what your limitations are for bringing it on a plane. Calculating the watt-hour of a battery is fairly straight forward. You’ll need two pieces of information, the Voltage (V) of your battery and the Amp Hours (Ah). The general equation for Wh is the following:

Here are three options for getting around the restrictions of large capacity lithium batteries on passenger aircraft.

Bring a few smaller batteries, to make a bigger battery once you land at your destination

Keeping in mind the 100Wh battery capacity restriction for air travel, one company has designed a battery that is under this limit (36V x 2.7Ah = 98Wh to be exact). The LiGo battery module is able to be re-assembled easily into a larger, usable capacity ebike battery once landed at your destination.

These batteries can be stacked in parallel to provide a higher capacity battery and maintain the same voltage (36V), or in series to create a 72V battery, depending on the specs and requirements of the ebike and controller.

One module (98Wh) has about 5-6 miles (8-10km) range. The company recommends bringing along no more than 4-5 modules per person on a fl ight in order to avoid extra scrutiny through security.

This video gives a good introduction and basic usage tutorial of this innovative battery. Cargo Aircraft Only

Dangerous Goods

Keep in mind that if you’re planning to ship your battery to your destination, you’ll also need to arrange to ship it home with a shipper at your destination. This could be more complicated, especially if another language is involved.

If you ship your whole bike AND battery, shipping would be classed as Dangerous goods (Class 9), but under UN3481 which is Lithium-ion batteries contained in equipment or Lithium-ion batteries packed with equipment (including lithium-ion polymer batteries). This would probably be a more expensive option than flying with your bike (without battery), since you would be paying for shipping of the bike AND battery.

Preparing the rest of your electric bike for air travel

So you’ve got this far and you still need to pack and prepare your ebike for air travel. If you’ve never flown with a bike before, here are a few tips to keep this process as pain free and easy as possible. Most airlines require that a bike is in one of following packages:

Cardboard Box

Advantages: cheap / free, don’t need to store it when you arrive, additional gear can be put in box

Disadvantages: more likely to be stacked which could cause damage, front chain ring and derailleur need to be protected if left on bike to prevent being bent, need to get another box for return trip

CTC (clear) plastic bag

Advantages: cheap, can carry bag with you while traveling, more likely to be handled with care (not stacked); can keep most of bike in one piece

Disadvantages: high risk of damage if dropped, least amount of protection for bike

Soft bike bag

Disadvantages: more likely to be handled with less care, front chainring and derailleur need to be protected if left on bike to prevent being bent, need to store it somewhere during your trip

samsung, electric, bike, mid-drive

Hard Bike case

Advantages: highest protection for your bike, additional gear can be kept in case

Disadvantages: need to store case while on trip, high cost of case, adds to the overall weight of the package, may require more of bike to be taken apart to fit in the case.

Preparing your bike to be placed in your package of choice you’ll need to take it apart. This generally includes removing pedals, wheels, disc rotors, bottle cages, handlebars, seat post, and derailleur.

It’s a good idea to put some bolts/spacers between the drop-outs of the frame and forks to prevent them from getting bent when your wheels are off the ebike.

Remember to bring along the tools (Allen and Torx wrenches) used to take your bike apart, so you can put it back together and go through a practice run before your trip to make sure you’ve got the take-down and assembly sorted.

How much power and battery do you need?

Once you’ve chosen a kind of motor, you decide how much motor you want, as well as how much battery you want behind it. Motors have watt ratings, batteries have voltage and amp-hours—it’s a dense thicket for a newcomer. Micah Toll, an engineer who writes at EbikeSchool.com and Electrek, helped me FOCUS on what matters.

First lesson: Ebike motor ratings are mostly nonsense. Some countries cap ebike motors: 250 watts in much of Europe, 750 watts in much of the US. Not coincidentally, motor makers and sellers advertise a motor’s “continuous” power instead of its peak rate. The more clear way to compare ebikes is to look at the voltage and current (amperage) for hill-climbing and top-speed power and to consider watt-hours for battery longevity.

You can tweak the voltage and current with different battery controllers, gaining more speed, more hill power, or different assist levels. The power you need depends on a lot of factors, including your body weight, the bike’s weight, and your pedaling power. Bicycling magazine has a deep dive on how to understand ebike motors and power (presented by Bosch, which makes its own ebike motors). Generally, Toll suggests, 24- and 36-volt setups are for casual riders who plan to pedal a good deal and don’t face lots of hills, while setups at 48 volts and above are useful for hills and no-pedal throttle riding.

I went (very) small for my wife’s roughly 650 ebike kit from a company called Leeds: a 250-watt, front-hub motor, powered by a 24-volt battery with 5.2 amp-hours, roughly the size of a squared-off 16-ounce beverage can. But watt-hours (Wh) offer a better battery comparison than amp-hours (Ah) do. You get watt-hours by multiplying the battery’s voltage (in this case, 24) by its amp-hours (5.2), so for my wife’s kit, that works out to about 125 Wh. Technically that means her fully charged battery can run her 250-watt motor at full power for about half an hour. It’s a useful comparison, but ebikes pull “full power” only during hill climbs and acceleration, so their batteries usually last much longer. On a paved-road commute, your legs can likely put in 100 to 200 watts of power on their own, so using a low-key kit like this is like having an on-demand tandem partner.

For such “assist” rides, 250 Wh is a better starting point these days, according to Toll. If you’re going to be riding your throttle most of the ride, 500 Wh (that is, a 48 V, 10 Ah setup) is your starting point.

If you want something close to an electric moped experience—almost entirely throttle, 25 to 28 miles per hour—you’re looking at a 750 Wh setup. At that point, you should be checking your local laws and also considering whether you ought to simply buy a dedicated ebike, because in terms of price, design, and safety, you’re likely better off with one.

My wife’s ebike is working well. Because she can safely store her bike at work and at home, she removes her battery only about once a week for charging. She gets most of the exercise of biking but can push a button to get a faster start at intersections or to tackle hills. It has made her more confident in biking around the city, which means the local bike shops still get some business in accessories, lights, and more.

Do you need to upgrade your brakes?

If you’re installing a lightweight battery and motor that you expect to use mostly as an assist to active pedaling, your current brakes may be fine. Disc brakes provide better stopping power, especially in wet conditions, but a good rim brake can suffice for commuting-focused rides. Toll said he spent three years riding a DIY 1,000-watt ebike with mechanical V-brakes (the kind you might see on a 10-year-old mountain bike), and it worked out well. “It’s more about the quality of the brake,” he said. At a minimum, though, check your brake pads and performance, or have a shop do a tune-up, when you’re installing a kit.

Many ebike kits and motors come with replacement brake levers, or sensors that can attach to your existing levers. These shut off the motor when pressed so that your motor stops pushing immediately when you mean to stop. I haven’t found them helpful on my own 250-watt setup (more on that in a bit), but there’s no harm in installing them.

Where should you buy a conversion kit?

There’s no one ebike kit that I—or anyone—can recommend for most riders and bikes. But Adam Ostlund, Micah Toll, and Karl Gesslein, ebike enthusiast and author at ElectricBike.com, all offered one bit of buying advice: Never try to “save money” by hunting for cheaper batteries. A cheap battery is almost always disappointing—and sometimes dangerous.

Bike batteries usually consist of a series of 18650 cells that are connected to one another and a battery-management system and then packaged into various shapes. Reputable battery makers and ebike-kit sellers use the best-quality cells from brand names like LG, Panasonic, and Samsung. In contrast, most discount sellers use lesser cells, from lesser-known makers, that have diminished capacity, voltage, and longevity, and their controllers can be equally suspect. Buy from a dealer with an established presence and return policy.

You can often find motors, batteries, controllers, wires, throttles, sensors, and other accessories sold separately, but unless you have a few conversions under your belt, you’re better off with an all-in-one kit. Kit makers have spent a lot of time testing how components work together, and they should be available for troubleshooting. Ostlund noted in our interview that Electrify Bike custom-programs some of its kit controllers so riders aren’t stuck with the often aggressive acceleration curves of some motors that are meant more for delivery workers than for weekend warriors.

Ebike-kit companies that were mentioned by the experts I talked to, are linked in ebike-enthusiast subreddits, and have generally built a good reputation include:

  • Luna Cycle (affiliated with ElectricBike.com and Gesslein)
  • Electrify Bike Co. (Ostlund’s shop)
  • Grin Technologies (batteries, motors, and kits)
  • eBikeling, Leeds, Hilltopper, Dillenger (hub kits)

What about Swytch kits?

Search online for ebike kits (or in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев posted on this article after its original publication), and you’ll see Swytch mentioned a lot. It’s a UK-based company, but it has a US warehouse for returns and distribution, as well as a one-year warranty on most parts. The company offers 250-watt, front-hub-based full conversion kits for bikes with 26-inch and 700c wheels, as well as for Brompton folding bikes. You have to preorder your customized kit, and you might wait a while, as Swytch prepares and ships kits in batches.

Swytch’s main hook is its unique battery and connector, which clicks on and pops off your front handlebars at the press of a button. Most people have room on their bikes there, and the design simplifies removing the battery when you’re locking up. Swytch recently announced the smartphone-ish–sized Air battery for those who value even more portability, and lighter weight, over range.

Swytch sent me a test kit for my own bike—a 2018 Norco belt-drive hybrid with 700c wheels—with a Pro battery (30-mile range) and both a cadence sensor and a throttle. After jumping on a video call to double-check my fork dropout width measurement (an important detail for any conversion kit), I ran the cables and installed the kit without much hassle.

My bike is already on the heavy side, and I’m biking for errands or recreation more than personal records, so the roughly 3 pounds of difference that Swytch’s motorized front wheel adds is tolerable. You’re more likely to notice the 4-pound battery on the handlebars, but that feeling soon disappeared for me—and so did hills, and starting on an incline, and feeling weighed down by cargo.

There are better ebikes for those committed to riding electric every time or for those interested in commuting longer (or steeper) distances with less pedaling, but I’ve enjoyed the versatility of the Swytch kit for weekend trips and weekday errands. If hauling a battery around will be a pain, or the ride is real short and my knees feel great, I can skip it. If I want a faster, smoother ride, I can grab the battery and head out. If bike space and versatility are a priority for you, the Swytch kit is worth considering.

If you’re unsure about any aspect of your conversion, look for your bike model on the Endless Sphere forum or the r/ebikes subreddit, or simply search the web for your bike name plus “ebike.” Bike owners who have stealthily converted their bikes into electric-powered dynamos love to tell people about it. Not that I’d know anything about that.
