Wife's Cruiser

So far so good. It looks like my wife will be leaving me in the dust now that she has a little get up and go. I used this on her Electra 7D and it will be a great add on to keep her out riding longer with me.

This kit even works on older Schwinn bicycles!

Rather than dispose of a 1963 Schwinn Typhoon, complete with a carrier from the day it came from the Schwinn bicycle shop, this kit has breathed new life into a classic, run of the mill, one speed coaster brake bike. The modern axle diameter (11mm) is larger than the 1960’s standard front rim axle diameter (6.35mm [1/4”]), so be prepared to address that. After the rim is in place, the installation is as easy as it looks on the helpful Ebike Essentials video.

COMPLETE BAFANG FRONT HUB EBIKE MOTOR KIT & BATTERY

Excellent overall experience! Giving this conversion kit& BafangUSADirect a very high rating in every way possible. Good price, performance, and support. This review is being written with 2,000 miles on the converted bike at ~4 months after install, and loving it. Hills and headwinds are no longer an issue. I can explore with a greater range, and hurry home if needed. I can also participate in recreational rides with younger, faster cyclists without being the Old Slow Joe who holds them back. Background: Installed on a Schwinn Signature Men's Fremont Hybrid bike, ~$500 from ****'s Sporting Goods. 70 year old lifelong recreational cyclist, ride almost every day, about 15-25 miles at a time, mostly on paved trails around Denver, CO, with occasional unpaved or gravel trails. Been casually looking online at e-bikes on and off for about 4 years and decided to take the plunge in 2021. While shopping and test riding I found that most ebikes had unsuitable, non-optimal gearing: the highest (ie, fastest) gears take you to about 10-12 mph, then you are just spinning your wheels while pedaling and have to use the e-assist. My riding style is to pedal all the time, down hills as well as up, and use the bike's many gears to keep pedaling at comfortable levels of revolutions per minute (45-55 rpm for me) and pedal force (ie: how hard you push on the pedals). This maximizes efficiency whether using human or electric power. You can find ebikes with better gearing, but they are more expensive, like $3,000 to $4,000 plus. Conversion of my own bike made sense for suitable gearing on a familiar bike at a very reasonable price – and I am very happy with the result. I also found that other conversion kits on the market, and ebikes. often use Bafang components, so it made sense to buy from that source to get a more powerful motor and more battery capacity for the money. Bafang USA has helpful resources on their website, and they answered my emailed questions within a day or two. They obviously know their products and how to answer questions their customers pose. Shipping was right on schedule and everything was packaged securely and safely. Install: The installation went smoothly, and took less time by far than the shopping. Range: Varies with how much pedaling you do, of course. With 48V 14.5 Ah Jumbo Shark Battery, in and around Denver where hills are few and generally small, I can get about 200 miles per 80% charge while relying heavily on human power. Lowest miles on one charge was 25 with high power usage on steep gravel roads in the mountains outside of Steamboat Springs, CO. Tips: Upgrade charger for longer battery life (See general battery info here: https://electricbikereview.com/forums/threads/e-bike-battery-guide.24443/ ). Upgrade display to DPC-18 for water resistance. Upgrade to larger battery if you want more range. Miscellaneous Comments. The quick and easy acceleration comes in handy for crossing streets and intersections quickly and surely, especially if in high gear from a rapid or unexpected braking situation. I sometimes use the motor to accelerate to a comfortable cruising speed, then maintain speed over a fair distance with manual power. Quiet, too: have met and conversed with cyclists while riding and they haven't even noticed I'm on a converted e-bike.
