If you’re after an ideal combination of speed, power, and competitive pricing, then the ModWheel 26 Inch 36v 500w Enthusiast GEARED Front Wheel Electric Bike Kit with Optional Battery is the way to go. This kit includes a 26” front wheel with a geared 36volt, 500 watt electric motor that offers superior torque compared to direct drive motors. It also sports an LCD speedometer, an electronic controller, and a useful carry bag for storing the controller in. The ModWheel Enthusiast Front Wheel Electric Bike Kit combines modern e-bike technology with affordable pricing to ensure that a greater number of riders can now access electric power.
Unlike many other brands that sell e-bike conversion kits, the ModWheel Enthusiast Geared Front Wheel Electric Bike Kit incorporates a geared motor with the option of magnetic Pedelec. This enables riders to have the best of both worlds: they can pedal (maintaining a fun form of exercise), but they also have supplemental electric power on offer to help out when necessary. The Pedelec is managed using the lightweight controller, which also includes a thumb throttle for smooth and instantaneous acceleration.
By choosing a geared motor, riders have the advantage of improved torque. The energy in these motors is routed through a series of planetary rotation gears that help propel the wheel. Unlike direct drive motors, a geared assembly is great for hills and inclines, as well as cruising down hills without drag like other e-bike wheels. You can also pedal without resistance from the motor, which makes is much easier to ride when you don't feel like giving your bike throttle.
The 26” diameter wheel supplied as part of the ModWheel Enthusiast Front Wheel Electric Bike Kit comes with an innertube and tire already attached, plus a dish that will assist in reducing wind resistance. The front wheel is easy to attach, as it doesn’t interfere with any existing gearing systems (which will ordinarily be connected to the rear wheel of a bicycle). When connected to a 36 volt battery, the ModWheel Enthusiast GEARED Front Wheel Electric Bike Kit can enable riders to travel up to 17 miles on an average battery charge, with a top speed of 21 miles per hour (subject to rider weight and prevailing ride conditions).

I am very satisfied with the E bike wheel but bike bury.com has the worst customer service ever. They will not answer the phone due The situation which I don’t see how it has anything to do with answering the phone, and I cannot get the info on how to program the wheel they told me to contact them by email but they do not answer emails either! Very disappointed with Mike Barry but the product is good.
