Nothing but praise!

I’m a big fan of your company. This is the second bike I’ve converted into an Ebike. My first was a mid drive conversion on my mountain bike. This latest was a front hub for my wife’s beach cruiser. Your tutorial videos are great and super easy to follow. Shipping is fast and all the parts were in the box!

Throttle gives best control

I am very happy with my front hub which gives me all-wheel drive. I ride mostly rough back roads with lots of hills and found the pedal assist did not work well on the hills so I disabled it and only use the throttle for the hills. That way I can conserve the battery when I am pedaling and have better control in slower speed areas. I built the fork heavier with steel dropouts and the extra weight gives better traction. I have not had any spin-outs in 150 miles. My kit is on a Giant Yukon and I usually go 17 miles and use the throttle quite a bit and have never come home with less than 48 volts or 45%. I like being able to use all 24 speeds on my bike but on the faster roads the highest speed is all one needs using the throttle to get started.
