PERTH ELECTRIC BICYCLES

SOLARBIKE Zihni Folding Bike

.

This is an electric folding bike with all the accessories and reliable components one could wish for. The current models all now include integrated front and rear lights, a rear carrier rack and full-length mudguards. Plus we’ve added a higher capacity battery stored neatly within the frame to offer an extended riding range as well as hydraulic disc brakes for solid and dependable stopping power in all conditions. This is a folding bike that rides well, easily folds into a convenient size and is well specced.

Their foldability makes them ideal for campers and caravaners, train commuters or city dwellers with small apartments. Whilst most electric folding bikes we’ve ridden have often been a little agricultural in terms of style and refinement, the Zihni offers excellent quality, styling and riding characteristics at an excellent value.

Come into our shop in Fremantle to take it for a free test ride – you’ll notice the Zihni is a cut above the average folder.

SOLARBIKE Tandem Bicycle Conversion

.

There are few better ways to share the enjoyment of cycling than with a Tandem. Tandem bikes are designed to be ridden with a captain in the front, and a stoker or passenger in the rear. The rider in the front controls the bike, leaving the rider in the rear, with nothing more to do than to assist with pedalling and enjoy the ride, in fact, the rear rider needs hardly any balancing skills at all. It gets even better when the tandem bike has been equipped with a SOLARBIKE electric conversion kit.

This customer’s bike features a classic tandem geometry frame and a semi-horizontal dropout. It also features two classic cruiser saddles with double springs and alloy V-brakes. Additionally, all SOLARBIKE wheels are disc brake compatible.

This SOLARBIKE electric converted tandem is a great way to share the joy of cycling with friends and family. Tandems are often purchased by couples, families or people with a disability which restricts them from being able to ride a bike on their own. Get a tandem, share the joy of cycling!

SOLAR BIKE Olive

.

OLIVE is a high-performance street/cruiser bike designed by SOLAR BIKE that has a step-through frame geometry for ladies and gentlemen looking for ease with getting on and off. For those looking to take this bike on gravel tracks and trails, we recommend converting to a set of knobbly off-road tyres and it will be a great performer. Otherwise, for on-road use, this is simply a great general-purpose bike that uses top end parts.  It has SHIMANO Alivio gears, Tektro front and rear hydraulic disc brakes, the proven BAFANG hub motor and a top-spec PANASONIC high capacity lithium-ion battery. Couple all of this to some nice extras like front and rear integrated bicycle lights, mudguards and carrier racks and you have an e-bike that eclipses most similar bikes in its class and price range. The seat is designed for comfort and the handlebars come on a stem that can be easily adjusted to suit many riders with no tools needed.  Power can be either by using only the pedal-assist system, using only the throttle and any combination of the two – as well as by pedalling of course. We guarantee that this bike will impress even the most discerning electric bike buyers with its balanced handling, quality componentry and timeless good looks!

Bafang mid-drive motor on carbon fibre bike.

Bafang mid drive carbon fibre bike

This was a very nice flat bar carbon fibre road bike that came into our shop with a customer asking us options for it to be electrified. Complete carbon fibre bikes represent one of the few difficult categories of bikes to retrofit an electric bike conversion kit to. The problem lies in that using a hub motor is too powerful for either the front or rear axle dropouts to handle and the chance of snapping the bike forks or the rear axle dropouts is too high to risk. General rule of thumb is never to install a hub motor onto anything carbon fibre; they are just not made to withstand the rotational forces of the electric motor axle. Mid-drive kits in our experience have never been able to be installed due to the gap being too small on the motor between the shaft that goes through the bottom bracket shell and the motor itself. Usually carbon fibre bikes are built up around this area compared to steel or aluminium framed bikes. On this particular bike, it was quite a minimal gap so we tried a few different motors to see if one could be installed. Both the Tongsheng and Lingbei torque-sensing motors could not fit, just 1mm off but even 1mm was too much. However, the Bafang mid-drive kit (BBS02 we used) just fit with a bee’s Johnson clearance. Thus, this became the first fully carbon fibre bike that we converted to be electric. Enough said…
