We’ve rolled out a whole new realm of electric bike conversion possibilities just in time for the summer riding season. You can now convert your favorite folding bike to an electric bike with our custom electric conversion kits.

We just finished this conversion on the Dahon Vitesse electric bike for a woman who’ll be using the bike as her primary mode of transportation. We used a seat post mounted battery so she would have full access to her rear rack for panniers and trunk bags. It’s just one of many possible setups for our new electric folding bike conversion kits.

With an electric bike kit like this you can ride for miles on a single charge, get where you need to go, and folding your bike up to take in with you. It’s a great setup for people who need a portable electric bicycle that is also a work horse. With this folding electric bike she’ll be able to run errand and buy groceries, even go on long distance rides without any problem what so ever.

The first thing you’ll notice about this electric kit is the clear and easy to use console that shows you exactly what power level your using and what your remaining battery life is. The thumb throttle is the very definition of power on demand, allowing you to vary your speed from 0 to 20mph just by moving those tiny muscles in your thumb. (this is actually the same system we use with out Brompton electric bike) Pretty sweet.

And of course, the best thing about a folding electric bike is that you can fold it up. What could be better than an electric bike you don’t have to leave on the street? That way it is protected from theft and the elements. It pretty much eliminates the stress of owning a bike.

I’m sure there will be more and more of these folding bike conversion rolling out of our shop as the summer progresses.
