Cyclotricity 250/1000W Rear Drive Electric Bike Conversion Kit
Cyclotricity 250/1000W Rear Drive Electric Bike Conversion Kit
Are you torn between choosing a powerful kit and a road-legal kit? Well, have both in one!
The UK/EU regulations dictate that a kit must not exceed the rated power of 250W to be road-legal. Which is not great news for the thrill-seekers, power hungry among us who want to have the occasional fun off-road yet still be able to ride sensibly and legally on-road. A purchase of the common high-powered kit will come with its legal implications. On the other hand, the practicality of a road-legal kit means giving up the fun one could have off-road. So which kit do you choose?
With these new rear wheel kits, CycloTricity had set out to resolve this very dilemma for its customers. We have developed a unique system that allows the user to swap between two modes depending on whether you are on-road or off-road, allowing you to unlock the full power where it is safe and legal to do so.
We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure you get the most out of your conversion kit purchase, with the most robust and durable components today’s technology has to offer. All at arguably the best value for money kits found in the UK.
Why Choose the 250/1000W Rear Drive Conversion Kit?
This category is our favourite! Once you try it, you can never go back to anything else! It has been developed purely for the thrill seekers among us. Since it’s a 48V system, the battery makes it more costly than its counterparts. Having said that, it offers an adrenaline-fuelled ride rarely found in conversion kits. It is packed with torque, power and will propel you to speeds up to 50km/h and climb incredibly steep hills. This kit is recommended for the outdoorsy spirit, the mountain biker and you who appreciate the exhilaration that comes with speed and power.
Please note that the kit will be supplied restricted to 250W by default and will require the LCD add-on to de-restrict it to the full 1000W for off-road use.

Apart from a battery, the above is all that is needed to fully convert a bicycle into an electric bike. All our kit packages include these essential items. All you need to add is a battery (and the optional PAS upgrade if required).
Pedal Assist System Upgrades
A Pedal Assistance System is a device that senses your pedalling and makes your kit give automatic assistance, i.e. you do not have to press the throttle throughout your journey. It consists of an advanced LCD handlebar monitor which, not only gives you five levels of power, but also displays your speed, journey distance, time, average speed and many other readings.The LCD computer is required to unlock the full power of 1000W for off-road use.
Although these are optional upgrades, you are highly recommended to install a Pedal Assistance System as it will transform your riding experience and improve the longevity of the battery.
Things to think about before purchasing this rear drive conversion kit:
1- If you wish to include a Pedal Assistance System with your eKit, the bottom bracket on your bike needs to be a Square Taper type (which is the most common bottom bracket on ordinary bikes). If you don’t have a square taper bottom bracket, you may need to replace it as well as the crank arms to make your bike compatible with the PAS. If in doubt, please consult a bike service shop on how to fit a square taper bottom bracket on your bike.
Alternatively, you may opt for purchasing the LCD Display only without the PAS if you want the de-restriction functions but prefer not to fiddle with your bottom bracket.
2- This Rear Drive Motor is only compatible with threaded Freewheel Cogs, not Cessettes. Here is the difference:
If your bicycle is fitted with a Cassette, remember to buy a Freewheel from the drop-down menu above or from your local bike shop.
3- To swap Freewheels, you need a tool named Freewheel Remover.
These are widely available to order online.
4- The Rear forks on your bike need to have 135mm clearance between the drop-outs (which is the case with the vast majority of bikes).
5- The fork drop-outs themselves need to be the standard 10mm size (this is also the most common size for fork drop-outs). If you happen to have the slightly smaller 9mm drop-out, you could file them down by 0.5mm on either side for the motor to fit. Please seek professional assistance for this part as doing it wrongly will be entirely at your own risk.
6- Ensure you have enough room inside your frame triangle for your choice of battery:
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.
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.
