AMAZING Genuine Top Speed 33+mph (On just throttle, on the flat no wind with 20 stone rider)!!

Will easily cruise 28- 30 MPH Throttle only (if you want to pedal like a demon as well, it may go faster) A 10 stone customer recently reported a 40 mph top speed!

Pedal Assist (PAS) in the lowest assist level (no 1 of 10) will easily supply 20MPH for 60 Miles!!!!

Our bike builder, all 20 stone in weight, regular travels a 20 mile return route cruising between 25-30 mph. This bike with throttle only, on the flat with no wind or pedal assistance can cover 40 miles at 20 mph. This is a genuine realistic proven statistic and a proven formula from Endless Sphere. If you pedal, you will greatly extend your range.

PAS and throttle work harmoniously together and have “On The Fly” settings changes.

Now with colour display and gear sensor for smooth gear changing.

Bafang BBSHD 1500Twith Shark 52V 17.5AH (Sanyo/Panasonic NCR18650GA Cells) Battery & Charger

The bike shown in the main photo is of the no longer available 2017 color scheme and now ready in the latest 2018 colors of Black/Blue and Silver. We have the latest photo shown in a similar bike, please check the site for the Pie V5 version

We build loads of bikes, most of them much more expensive, but this is genuinely one of our favorite builds. The frame and geometry works perfectly with the ebike build.

Do not be fooled by mechanical disc brakes, these are strong and reliable and allow the full working of the ebike brake cut off, normally not available on electric bikes.

The PAS (Pedal Assist) and throttle are outstanding and work seamlessly and “on the fly”, choosing eihter (PAS had 9 Levels).

Our bike builder, all 20stone in weight, regular travels a 20 mile return route cruising between 25-30 mph and hitting top speeds (on the flat with no wind 33mph ? when tuned to 1500 watt). Using one of the 9 different pedal assist levels (PAS) he can achieve up to 60 miles!

We chose the Rockhopper Comp 2017 for its reactive light weight Air shocks and fantastic geometry and fantastic build quality. The bike is stable at speeds and the hydraulic Shimano brakes with front 160mm rotor will stop you dead when needed.

The BAFANG BBSHD is un-rivalled in reliability and regarded as the very best in bike conversion equipment. Super smooth and silent. More powerful than proprietary brands like Bosch and Shimano and with a proven track record. These are not cheap to buy, but well designed and highly engineered devices. The controller and mechanical/electrical parts are housed in aluminium machined waterproof housings. No ungainly bullet connectors or exterior ?Boxes? bolted to the frame. You simply get a thumb throttle and amazing colour information display and battery. The motor can be operated directly from the throttle only, while you rest your feet on the pedals (which do not turn at freewheel) or pedal like normal using one of the 9 different assist levels.

The motor is only as good as the battery. To be quite frank, there is a lot of rubbish in the battery world. So we went direct to the factory and bought the best. This is a Hailong Cased “Shark” type battery using samsung (now the same company) Samsung High discharge 30Q 18650 cells 3000 mAh cells (70 of them!) running in what?s known as 14s5p.

These cells are widely regarded as the best for Ebike use as they have massive discharge and re-charge abilities. There is no point using a battery that will simply over heat or die when it?s used. These batteries are built for the job and will keep and keep doing the JOB.  You get what you pay for!

The battery has a LED charge indicator, external USB and an easy slide on/off attaching system to the bike which is lockable. We also for extra protection add to Velcro fasteners just to give it that “Little More”.

These bikes are designed for average off road use (as the law states they must not be driven on the road) but are exceptional for tarmac circuit Use. They are not designed for the rigours of downhill or jumps. The battery is charged through a specially selected 3Ah charger with LED charge indicator.


We have a 7 day build time on this bike and built to order.
