Make The Switch

ARCC Intelligent Smart Pod eBike Conversion Service

Make the switch today to upgrade your bike without paying for a new electric bike. Keep using your favourite bike and increase your pedalling power so you no longer need to worry about hills and aching legs.

To start the process, please get in touch at info@pedalandchain.co.uk . Give us a description of your bike along with photographs for bespoke bikes.

We will organise collection of your current bike, retrofit ARCC's smart pod system and then deliver your new electric bike in a seamless process.

All conversions are fitted by our partner team of experts at their Cambridgeshire headquarters.

10% of our profits from electric bike and electric scooter sales will be donated to Sustrans via Work for Good.

With every order of an e-bike or e-scooter through Pedal & Chain, you are contributing to the brilliant work Sustrans are doing.

Why Sustrans?

Sustrans are the UK charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle. The work they do creates healthier places and happier people. This aligns perfectly with our mission to enable people to be kinder to themselves and the planet.

They are custodians of the National Cycle Network, a UK-wide network of traffic-free paths for everyone, connecting cities, towns and countryside, loved by the communities they serve.

 

What difference can you make?

50,000 people a year die prematurely in the UK from exposure to the poor air quality on our busy city streets. Cars internally recirculate the pollution giving their occupants a double dose! Cyclists have much less exposure and an e-bike rider using quieter roads has practically none.


Sustrans brings people together to create places with clean air and green spaces, where friends and facilities are just a short walk away.

When you order an electric bike or e-scooter from Pedal & Chain, you are making a difference to communities across the UK.

Very pleased with my ARCC Brompton…

Very pleased with my ARCC Brompton conversion. I find that, even with level 3 it is too easy to reach the 15.5 mph assistance limit. On my usual route into town it seems to make the hills disappear!
Subjectively, I admit, the battery range (6ah) seems a bit less than advertised. You certainly feel the difference when it stops working!

Unique Intelligent Bike Power

The ARCC Intelligent Power System has been designed by ARCC Innovations to provide unique intelligent bike power. It combines variable power levels with automatic hill/gradient compensation and launch control. This allows commuting cyclists to choose the amount of effort both they and the motor provides; automatically compensates for hills and gradients; and provides ‘launch control’, for safety when moving away from traffic lights and crossings in heavy traffic.

Fast, effortless and safe getaway

The e2-pod features a launch control function. This can be activated by applying both brakes and pressure to the left pedal. When the brakes are released and the rider pedals, the motor delivers maximum power for a period of three seconds. This enables a fast, effortless, and safe getaway from lights and busy crossings in heavy traffic, as well as an extra boost for hill starts

E
Electric Bike Report
A Silky Smooth Ride

The ARCC e2-pod system provides a silky smooth ride, the motor pulling along nicely some fractions of a second after you start pedalling, and cutting off almost instantaneously on stopping. It’s clearly made to a very high standard too. The pod itself and the handlebar control unit are beautifully engineered and manufactured and the high tech Bluetooth approach works very well.

Precision Engineering

What stands out before you have even ridden the bike is the precision engineering. There’s further reassurance of the system’s quality in the form of a five year guarantee, and this is complemented by the fact ARCC will honour the Brompton warranty if they supply a new model with the ARCC system (or they will retrofit it to your own Brompton and honour any remaining warranty on that too). Bosch batteries come with a two year guarantee from Bosch themselves.
