New Hope Electric Bike Conversion Kit

The NewHope Electric Vehicle Co of ShenZhen, China thought we might interested in their Electric Bike Conversion Kit. And given that we have had a few requests for information on cheaper products and DIY gear, we though why not? Seems the conversion kit, once installed, could propel your bicycle along at over 25km/h for somewhere between 25 to 50 km. That’s on a 10 hour charge of the 2 x12v 18Ah battery. They reckon the motor gets about 86% efficiency, with a total weight for whole assembly being about 13.5 kg. There is a catch, of course. They only supply bulk purchasers, with the minimum order being around 300 kits! But maybe your friendly chain of bike stores could be interested. ::New Hope
