For a long time, it seemed that riders only had the option of a standard pushbike or a motorized bike; but, now, thanks to the ModWheel Complete 26 Inch 36v 250w Commuter Direct Drive Electric Bike Kit riders can convert any bicycle into an electric bike.
The problem with a standard pushbike is that when you’re totally exhausted after a long day of work or school, the last thing you feel like doing is pedaling all the way home (up and down whatever hills you encounter). And a motorized bike is noisy to operate and requires a high level of ongoing maintenance in order to keep them in top condition. The ModWheel Complete Commuter Wheel Kit lets riders upgrade their existing pushbike, effectively turning it into a fully functional electric bike. This means that you can still enjoy pedaling when it’s convenient, but when you’re feeling tired or are in a big hurry, you’ve got the reassurance of an electric motor.
The 26” Commuter wheel comes ready to be fitted with an inner tube and tire already attached. Concealed within the hub of the wheel is a 250-watt brushless motor, which is whisper quiet and low maintenance (no brushes to replace). The motor runs off a 36 volt, 11 amp-hour lithium battery, which can be added on as part of the kit. The battery can be locked in place using the included key and takes just 5 hours to achieve a full recharge (with a battery lifespan of at least 800 recharges). The 250-watt motor and 36-volt battery help the bike to travel up to 25 miles on a single battery charge, with an average cruising speed of 10 miles per hour (and a top speed of 15 miles per hour).
The ModWheel Complete Commuter Wheel Kit includes a simple electronic controller (with a handy storage bag), plus an LCD speedometer for tracking current speed. The controller has a thumb throttle connection for instant power from the motor, plus Pedelec programming. The Pedelec enables riders to pedal comfortably (so you can still benefit from regular exercise) while the electric motor provides additional power so you don’t have to work quite as hard.
