I’m turning to the Riot Act for some helpful information! I need info on electric bike conversion. I want to get to work without my car, and I have tried Action and just can’t make it work. So I thought of looking into electric bikes. I have an ordinary bike that I ride very occasionally, but I often work odd hours and don’t want to be pedalling it for hours in the middle of a hot day or after dark on a cold night. An internet search found me a couple of Canberra companies who will sell me an e-bike – that is, a whole new bike with an electric motor – and others who will sell me a conversion kit.
I don’t want a whole new bike when I already have a perfectly good one. I have absolutely no handyman or tinkering skills to speak of and would never be able to manage doing the conversion with a kit. Is there any business in Canberra which would be able to convert my current bike into an e-bike?
