Why DIY with a REV-Bike Conversion Kit?

REV-Bikes Conversion Kits allow you to add a motor to virtually ANY BIKE, so you are no longer restricted by the limited range of styles/colors available on factory electric bikes.  If you like being proud of things you DIY, you will enjoy adding the electric kit to your bike, and get many more options in terms of power.  The other benefit to this is that we can convert old retro bikes, mountain bikes, BMX’s, fixies or highly geared racing bikes (or anything in between).
The kits are a great project, which results in something you can not only be proud of, but it will also help you get around, AND you’ll be the envy of your friends!

What do I Need to Convert a Bike?

If you have a reasonably practical mind (or the ability to follow INSTRUCTIONS) and a few basic tools, you will have no trouble installing the kit on your bike.  If you install the motorised wheel on the front, you will avoid needing to work around the gear cassette and derailleur, which keeps things even more simple.

Tools needed - The regular tool box normally does the job, although every bike is different.  Generally speaking, a Phillips head screwdriver,  set of spanners, a standard metric Allen key set and some cable ties will do the job.  For rear wheels, a cassette removing tool will be required if you wish to re-use your old cassette (maximum 24mm width).  If you wish to instal the Pedelec, a crank arm remover is needed.  Some practical problem solving is helpful too, as always on a DIY, not everything can be planned for.

You can also have your bike converted by us, which you may find a quicker and easier solution.
