If you’re after an ideal combination of speed, power, and competitive pricing, then the ModWheel 26 Inch 36v 500w Enthusiast GEARED Electric Bike Kit with Optional Battery is the way to go. This kit includes a 26” front or 7-Speed rear 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 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 downhills without drag like other e-bike wheels. You can also pedal without resistance from the motor, which makes it 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 Electric Bike Kit comes with an innertube and tire already attached, plus a dish that will assist in reducing wind resistance. When connected to a 36-volt battery, the ModWheel Enthusiast GEARED 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).

Installation on my Treck 18 speed required the bikeshop or specialized tools to install the crank censor, otherwise Installation was easy for my moderate skills.
After multiple rides of 20 mile mountain dirt roads, 20 mile city streets and 50 mile paved backroad touring the bottom line is that this is magic. The $800 kit enables me to be at 63 years old, 50% better than I ever was in my prime.
Just order the kit is my best advice.
[ technical critiques: coming from an industrial safety background; there is an absence of safety interlocks on this early immature technology. You can bump the throttle switch and watch the bike take off and crash without you.
My throttle control sticks a bit so the throttle and brake cut-out fight it out at stop lights, a potentially fatal situation for children and unexperienced riders.
My physical amps run out on hills when only peddling, requiring the throttle assist for over 50% of the units power.
Doubling the sensor magnets may solve this power vacuum.
Peddeling backwards fools the magnetic monitor into delivering full power yea-ha!
said the snail riding the turtle.
However this too presents a potential safety risk to those unprepared for the (burst 🤣) of power.
again, these are technical critiques intended to help mature the technology and help people stay safe. They are not intended to diminish this wonderful product. ]
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.
The battery is a little small it is very expensive at $700 there is no instructions I don't know how to unlock my power assist
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.
great kit It's very easy to install. Having a great time on my morning rides especially on hills. Very smooth acceleration.
