Cyclotricity 250/500W Mid Drive Electric Bike Conversion Kit
Equip your own bike with power assistance!
Wouldn’t it be great to keep cycling your ordinary bike yet never have to struggle with hills again? Or carry on your normal commute without having to arrive at work covered in sweat?
Now, you can! This electric bike kit (eKit) allows you to transform your bike into an e-bike for a fraction of the cost. Cycling will suddenly have a whole new dimension to it!
500W Mid/Crank Drive
This category is the all-rounder of E-Bike conversions. It is as light as the 250W Front Drive, but with the power of a 500W motor! In fact, it has torque much higher than the regular 500W Rear Drive kit, which makes it a much better hill climber.
It is positioned in the middle of the bike for the best weight distribution there is. It uses a 36V volt battery which makes it a fairly cost-effective purchase. The PAS and LCD screen are included by default making for an extra cost saving. It is also suitable for non-standard bikes that has unusual forks where hub motors don’t fit.
The Cyclotricity 250W/500W motor kit offers a good combination of strong torque, high efficiency with low power consumption and noise output. The mid drive motor transfers power through the bikes gears, meaning the motor can operate within its optimum RPM range which is ideal for hill climbing.
The unique 250/500W system allows you to have a higher power option where it is safe and legal to do so while still maintaining the ability to use the low power option on the road for maximum efficiency.
The Cyclotricity kits can be fitted to standard bike frames through a simple installation process, detailed in our video guide.
Mid Drive Brushless Motor (with integrated controller). Restricted to 250W by default as a road legal kit. 500W mode reaches maximum speed of 32km/h once de-restricted (requires a signed disclaimer to derestrict for off-road use).
42 Tooth Chain Wheel + Plastic Chain Cover.
2 x Brake Levers.
Left And Right Crank Arms.
Speed Sensor + Magnet.
Waterproof Quick Release Cables.
Apart from a battery, the above is all that is needed to fully convert a bicycle into an electric bike. All you need to add is a battery (and the optional Throttle upgrade if required).
Things to think about before purchasing this mid drive conversion kit:
- The bottom bracket of your bike will need to be between 68-73mm wide in order to work with this mid drive, you will also need to consider space for the motor.
- The chain ring is 42 tooth so chain line will need to be fairly standard and the chain may need to be lengthened or shortened depending on your bike configuration. Your local bike shop can help you with chain adjustments.
- You can only use this as a 1 ring set up. I.e. if you have 3 front gears, these will become one. With an electric motor installed, you won't need the front gears.
- It's also a good idea to ensure you have enough room inside your frame triangle for your choice of battery:
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.
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.
We are supporting their cause to create cities and towns where everyone can thrive without having to use a car.
