If you’ve got a 7 speed bicycle and are longing to be able to keep up with your electric bike buddies, then the ModWheel 26 Inch 36v 500w Enthusiast 7-Speed Rear Wheel Direct Drive Electric Bike Kit is ideal. This complete kit includes a powerful 500 watt electric motor, a quality battery, electronic controller, LCD speedometer…even a handy carry bag to transport the controller in! Not only that, but the ModWheel Enthusiast 7-Speed Rear Wheel Kit is super easy to install. You can be fully operational and catching up to the other electric bicycles in no time at all.
The fantastic thing about upgrading with a ModWheel Enthusiast 7-Speed Rear Wheel Kit is that you don’t have to worry about finding another bicycle frame that suits you as well as your existing model. Whether you currently own a cruiser, a commuter or a mountain bike, if you’re happy with everything (except the lack of electric motor), then the ModWheel Enthusiast 7-Speed Rear Wheel Kit lets you keep everything you already love. But now, when you’re feeling tired, when you’re on your way to an appointment and don’t want to arrive all sweaty, or when you’re in a hurry, you have the convenience of an electric powered motor.
The great thing about a rear wheel electric bike kit is that it is compatible with existing 7 speed bicycles, without the need for costly jackshaft kits. The rear wheel contains a 500 watt electric motor, which will deliver greater levels of torque when compared to a similar front wheel motor. The rear wheel motor also creates a sensation of being pushed along (rather than pulled along), which many new e-bike riders say is a more familiar sensation (closer to the feeling of riding a standard pushbike).
The motor is powered by an optional 36 volt, 11 amp hour battery that can be added to the kit, offering a top speed of 17 miles per hour and an average range of 21 miles on a single charge (although this will be subject to various factors including wind conditions, rider weight, and terrain). The motor can be engaged using the thumb throttle, or by selecting Pedelec on the electronic controller. Pedelec will provide supplemental engine support to match the rhythm that you are riding at.

After I sent back the wheel because it had no gears, I got the new one. It went on perfectly and works well, I’m a little concerned because my battery meter isn’t working and I haven’t contacted them yet to figure it out.
Satisfied Customer! Now I have extra power when I bike around off trail. On my first ride with this kit, we road about 12 miles and I did not break a sweat peddling.
very pleased All the parts arrived earlier than expected. These kit are compatible with my mountain bike, which I like because it's easier to use and bought it cheaper compared to other bike kits in the market. This is worth the price.
Satisfied It was everything that they said it would be, easy installation. I have it on a schwinn tandem bike, and with two people too speed was about 28 mph.love this wheel, thank you
Great, but a lot of work I bought the kit already installed into a folding 20"" bike from a neighbor. It was used and it looks like he did a fair share of work and riding. He used it to commute for about a year. Excited to be mobile again with all my medical limitations, i splurged on a new seat, a front basket, a couple prs of gloves, a powerful led light, rear lights, a little mounted stereo, a bell and mirrors. I replaced the dinky kickstand with a moped one. I put reflective tape on and touched up the paint. I created a seat and foot rests for my kid after several expensive trials and errors. In short, i spent a lot of time learning, buying, searching, adjusting and working or repairing the bike. And it was worth it- it is fun as hell to ride with its power, especially uphill, all 240 of me and my 35# son, no problem. We even took it on the hilly off road trails and it didn't flinch. However there were a fair amount of setbacks. The brakes are horrific- and the bike repair man cannot figure out how to improve them. The horn does not work. The read out is broken and mounted backwards. The connectors are CONSTANTLY coming apart, like every day. Today, the throttle line male 5 prong connector BROKE. In the pitch black, 2 miles away down steep hills, while with my half asleep kid and a full picnic to carry up. Now im trying to find the parts to fix it... Again- and so far it looks like a complete nightmare.
