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 Front Wheel Electric Bike Kit riders can convert any bicycle into a 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 Front 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 front 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 Front Wheel Kit includes a simple electronic controller (with 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.

I had to return my first bike kit from Bikeberry because I was unable to get it to work for me. It was the 1000watt front hub kit. They took it back and sent me a requested 250 watt front hub kit. I just got it together and it worked perfectly. I was very happy; this kit has all that I need from an ebike as a casual rider. Thank you guys for working with me as we resolved my ebike problem. Very pleased here!
Very happy with the kit.Easier than I thought to put together.. Perfect for small town travel . Had some shipping issues but company made it up to me for sure. Like the bike
I bought this kit as my introduction to ebikes in 2016. I used it heavily for getting around and learned a lot in the over the years.
Foremost among those is that I think you should use it with a steel fork, I used an aluminum one and the dropouts were bent and rendered unsafe. I chose to use a Surly Big Dummy fork and still have it despite parting out the rest of the bike. I also added a torque arm for good measure.
Additionally, brakes are as important as the motor so don't neglect ot cheap out on them. The spokes of the motor wheel will all shift and loosen them over time, so be sure they get checked every few months.
In the end, the motor started making a knocking noise and died a few weeks later. My two battery packs were also seriously showing their age and were under performing.
Thousands of miles and a few dozen learning experiences prepared me to build another bike from the frame up. I chose a mid drive but still respect the place of hub motors. For beginners or more casual users they are a fine choice, easy to install and maintain.
great kit! Very Good Kit it is packed with everything i needed and i love love love the Speedometer that it comes with. I can ride this down the street to my local park and come back with enough battery it makes going to the store so much easier for me as well i save so much gas because of this kit.
