To get clear on what’s involved in the DIY of our kits, watch our instructional installation videos below.

We do go into quite a bit of detail, and point out some of the challenges you may face. We don’t intend to make it look easier than it really is.  But we think this does make it a lot simpler than trying to follow paper instructions!

All bikes are different, and many bikes will present the odd barrier to a simple install – a practical problem-solving mind can come in handy, as with any DIY project.  And of course you can call us with any questions 🙂

We sometimes run Conversion Workshops around Melbourne, for those without the required tools or practical skills to embark on a conversion alone.  These sessions will help you have your bike set-up within a day, in most cases.

We also deliver our Electric Bike Mechanics Training Courses to skill people in the art of E-Bike Mechanics.  The course allows you to undertake your own conversion, and learn all about the workings of ebikes generally – a must if you’re looking to get into the industry.
