Electric Bike Motor Kit
MID crank motor drives are the holy grail power-providers for electric bikes. If you want to know how you can spend a lot of money on an electric bike and get the ultimate in efficiency and performance this is a good start. Mid crank MID motor drives are not the cheapest electric bikes to build, but can be the cream of the crop once you are out riding, especially off road, especially climbing hills or even mountains.
When compared to a hub motor, a MID drive is an elegant solution. This is because MID drives allow you to use the bike's transmission as the motor's gears, so the electric motor can run in its optimum RPM range. This translates to a happier more efficient motor and a lighter better balanced e-bike. Why a lighter bike? When going through the gears, you don't need as heavy a motor to propel you up hills without smoking, and you dont need as much battery because a crank MID motor kit drive is considerably more efficient than a hub motor especially when climbing.
Here is a sample of just a few of our reviews we get back about our customers purchases of our PoweredBicycles Electric Bicycles:
I recently bought a powered bicycle from Scattergoods Motor Parts (PoweredBicycles) in Long Eaton. Since then I have been riding to work about 8 miles each way. It's been great, I beat all the traffic including the buses and have knocked off between 15-25 minutes on the journey in. 8 miles in 35 minutes in rush hour traffic! I bought a powered cycle as I thought it would keep me on my bike daily. I am fairly fit but didn't want to arrive at work sweaty and exhausted. With my new bike I pedal and use both manual gears to increase the speed in combination with the electric gears. It sounds complicated but its not, what it means is I can get as much or as little exercise as I want and have options. I absolutely love not having to wait in traffic, I definitely recommend this product if distance is a barrier for you getting into work on a bike. ps. the staff are really helpful.
"MAKE EXERCISE A BREEZE", the words my partner now uses to explain the benefits and enjoyment of these terrific inventions. It's been over two years since we purchased our first electric bikes from Poweredbicycles, which were our first electric bikes. The decision to buy from PoweredBicycles was taken after a fair bit of research, travelling around and testing of the electric bikes available at the time. We didn't have to use any real scientific evaluation to make the decision it was almost obvious to us when we had met Hamant and the team at their slightly confusing but thoroughly endearing, well stocked and welcoming shop in Long Eaton. Hamant's passion, knowledge and desire for his product was infectious, it left all the other retailers we had visited looking dull, uninviting and uninteresting. We had planned to spend an hour or so at the shop that first day, having arrived at 10:00am, travelling from North Yorkshire. We left seven hours later at 5:00pm! Throughout the time, we never once felt pressured that we had to make a purchase, we were just given a step-by-step understanding of the technologies used in the production of the bikes, the history of the business and the choices available us. We made endless, but vital trips to the 'testing ground', across the road with different styles of bicycles, not realising that we were being assessed by Hamant as to what we were really after, and what would be best for us. Indeed, my partner, Sarah, was initially more concerned with the look of the bike. Her aspiration was that it had some real street cred, e.g a mountain bike look alike. All the time Hamant was getting to know her, and knew exactly what bike was best for her. How right he was, Sarah is so passionate about her bike, she rides most days and calls it "Lady Penelope". She wouldn't change it for anything. I didn't really know what I wanted, but once I'd ridden the Mantra City, I was smitten, and I remain smitten to this day. It's a wonderful bike, both on road and even some bridleways etc. We always take the bikes with us on our motorhome holidays, which we thoroughly enjoy. Everything that we told by Hamant about the bikes, their capabilities has proven to be totally correct. After many years of heavy use, I feel we are in a worthy position to comment on this. I have been down to see Hamant several times over the past few years, and have always been made to feel very welcome. I have no concerns about recommending Poweredbicycles to anyone. My brother and his wife have recently also bought bikes from them, they too are totally happy with their bikes.
