    How to make an eBike (DIY)
    Auto DIY



    Published on May 19, 2015
    If you are looking for the parts and tools list, please visit:
    http://EpowerMyBike.com

    This video is a detailed overview of how to convert a bicycle to an electric bike (eBike). The motor in this demonstration is a 750W Bafang 8Fun BBS02 Mid drive system with a 48v 9AH Samsung lithium Ion battery pack. The process is the same for any Bafang mid drive, including the BBS01, or BBSHD. Happy riding.

    Purpose built eBikes are great, but expensive, and the mid drives are also generally 36v 350w systems. This motor and battery can be had for about a thousand dollars and installed on almost any existing bike. Plus you can max out the legal limit and get a 48v 750w more powerful system. Making your rides as easy or tough as you want, this is great for commuting or just exercising. When you let it assist you, it makes you feel incredibly strong, and it will get you out and enjoying riding.

    I have a Luna ebike that I bought last year. It is quite pricey but very dependable.

    IZIP E3 Dash Video Review - High-Speed Urban Commuter Electric Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on May 25, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/izip/e... The 2017 IZIP E3 Dash is a value-priced urban electric bike that includes fenders, integrated LED lights, a rear rack, and hydraulic disc brakes, it's available in three frame sizes but only high-step. This is a high-speed Class 3 ebike that can reach ~28 mph assisted and because it relies on a cadence sensor, you don't have to push as hard to get there, excellent weight distribution. Custom frame with internally routed cables and a bottle cage mounting point, turning the bike on and off requires extra steps, the display panel is not removable. Only one color choice but the silver looks cool and keeps you visible at night, the cadence sensing motor does not have shift sensing and the brake levers don't have motor inhibitors.

    Haibike XDURO FullSeven Carbon Ultimate Video Review - Light Carbon Fiber Electric Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on May 27, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/haibik... The Haibike XDURO FullSeven Carbon Ultimate is a 2016 version of what is now called the FullSeven Carbon 10.0. This is a high-performance electric mountain bike available in four frame sizes, stiff carbon frame for improved power transfer and handling, carbon accents include seat post, saddle, handlebar, wheelset and more. Eleven speed Shimano Deore XTR drivetrain with Di2 electronic shifting for faster, more precise gear changes and reduced chain wear, the Bosch motor controller is also designed to reduce mashing. Beautifully integrated motor and battery pack, the weight is kept low and center, shielding is minimalist but effective, unique Sprocket Equalizing System raises the chain and reduces kickback. Prohibitively expensive at ~$16k, the weight is low compared to most other ebikes I have reviewed but it wasn't as light as I expected at ~42.5 lbs, the wheelset may only accommodate up to ~209 lbs riders.

    Raleigh Detour iE Video Review - Comfortable Commuter E-Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Jun 3, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/ The Raleigh Detour iE is a classy, comfortable, lightweight city ebike available in high-step and step-thru frame styles, choose from light blue or black, and three sizes. Swept-back handlebar, ergonomic grips, comfort saddle, fenders, and a combination chain guide plus cover offer a lot of utility for commuters. The Shimano STePs mid-drive is efficient, compact, and well balanced, it uses an advanced sensor for smooth starts and stops and is easier on the drivetrain. You get nine speeds for comfortable pedaling (climbing or cruising up to 20 mph), removable battery, and a removable display panel, the charger is relatively fast but uses an adapter which can be misplaced and lost more easily.

    Pedego 24" Trail Tracker Video Review - A Slightly Smaller Fat Tire Ebike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Jun 14, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/pedego... The Pedego 24" Trail Tracker is one of the only 24" sized fat e-bikes I have ever seen, it's easier to approach, stand over, and handle for short to mid-sized riders, Pedego also offers a 20" fat model for kids. Large comfortable tires that work well on sand or snow when deflated to 5-8 PSI, an integrated aimable headlight keeps you visible and lights the way, pedal assist and throttle operation. Large 180 mm mechanical disc brakes with tool-free adjustable calipers, motor inhibitors, and an integrated bell, updated frame design with shorter wheelbase improves handling. Fairly expensive but you get a large network of dealers for in-person support, heavy but powerful and well balanced, the bike comes with an extra fuse, touch up paint, and a quick 3 Amp charger.

    17Ah 36V Ebike Battery Range Test
    E-Bike Commuter



    Published on Jun 20, 2017
    Follow us on our mini bike tour to a children´s summer camp. We ride a Larry vs Harry Bullitt cargo bike and also have a BOB Yak trailer fully loaded. I estimate total weight of our bike, passengers and cargo was a total of 180kg.

    I am running my 250W front hub motor and a 17Ah 36V battery on this trip. The total distance to our destination turned out to be 44km. A 17Ah battery will in many cases be marketed as a +100km battery. In this video we will show you how far this battery took us in a real life situation.
