3MISTAKES TO AVOID WHILE BUYING E-BIKE KIT Getting the right e-bike may be very challenging and there are just too many e- bike makers and they all claim their kit to be the best! If you are planning to get one, then you should try to avoid these mistakes: 1-GOING FOR FRONT WHEEL MOTOR It is a big mistake as most of the suspension forks are made of cast aluminium material. While aluminium is a strong material but it is not very flexible and has some brittleness. When you have a rotating hub motor on the front wheel it puts a lot of stress. And under such stress any dropout can crack the wheel and break the fork. When that happens the
wheel may no longer remain attached to the bike. That is why it is suggested to go with a rear wheel motor. 2-PREFERRING E-BIKE TO NORMAL BIKE WITH E- BIKE KIT There are many who assume that the factory made e-bike kits are better. Although they may be a great solutions for new-buyers but then e-bike kit may be good for some. In a new e-bike, there is place for the battery, and hardly will you find any wires running around. But when you go for an e-bike conversion kit same may not be true. Further an e- bike kit may have performance issues as it may have to comply with laws. But when you go for e-bike kit, there may
not be such restrictions and that is why you get better performance with an e-bike. Then there may be quality issue with some of the e-bikes as well. 3-BUY A KIT THAT HAS MORE POWER If you buy an electric bike kit that is overpowered then you may just be carrying more battery and power without any use. IN THE END If you can avoid these mistakes you will probably have the best kit!
