Making sure your wheels measure up

By Iris 1 years ago

The final part of purchasing an electric bike kit is to choose the correct rim size for your bike. This is a reasonably straightforward exercise as it is written on the sidewall of your existing tyres. Though there are a few caveats, you should know about as some tyre sizes are an odd measurement, but are compatible with the one rim size.

First, if your tyre says either 650b or 27.5” they will fit on the same rim size. Second, if your tyre reads 700C, 29er or 28” they will all fit perfectly on a 700C-sized rim. The only thing you will need to be positive about is if your current bike tyres are a 29er, they can sometimes have wider rims and hubs. Read this article about checking your bikes measurements.

Joe's 350W Kit Installation

I chose the Dillenger 350W - 8Ah Electric Bike Kit as the best for me, trading off a bit of range against less weight and cost. The kit set me back $549USD, with free shipping included. Delivery was prompt and without incident. The packaging is excellent.

My First E-Bike Experience

By Terry M 2 years ago

Like many people, my first bicycle came when I was a young boy. When I went off to college in 1971, the "cool" campus bike that everybody was riding was a Schwinn continental 10 speed. They were so popular I had to be on a 3-month waiting list to get one. I rode that bike for probably 10 years.

750W Bafang mid drive installation

This blog post takes us to the story of Vik and his e-bike conversion, Vik is a great mate of mine and had a go on my own ebikes, which convinced him to do this conversion. First up, I’ll be straight with you and say this conversion is illegal to ride on road. It’s a 750 watt mid drive Bafang 8fun unit, which according to the laws in Australia is illegal other than for "off road" riding. This means that you can’t ride on bike paths or roads with this setup. That said, there are many enthusiasts who are riding over powered electric bikes responsibly in the community.

Worth every penny and Dillenger is committed to great customer service!

I've had the 350W 10ah kit for 600 miles now and I am thoroughly impressed with the performance and your customer service! I researched electric bike wheel kits for a while before deciding that Dillenger was the best deal. I am glad I did it. The connectors are very sturdy and the battery pack looks well made.

Sure, you can possibly fit your bike out with a basic 250w kit for less but I wanted reputation and service, from a local company, and in that regard I couldn't beat Dillenger’s basic 250w front hub kit.
