I while ago I contacted you about buying an eKit for my bike and trying to work out the spec needed for attempting the coast2coast cycle ride (146 miles from the west coast of England to the east)
I’m pleased to say that I eventually took the plunge for a lowly 9Ah / 250W front hub kit that was suppped by Townsend Nursaries in Harpenden.
The kit was fantastic and even on our longest day of ~ 46 miles or so which included a 5 mile cpmb up the Hartside path I still had 25% of my battery left at the end of the day! Granted I’d only used it sparingly on the tougher cpmbs but as we neared the end of the day I used it on full assist for the last 5 miles to fly past some “keaner / purer” cycpsts who made the assent much more slowly!
Once again – thanks for the kit – it’s been great! I just wish I had a second bike to play with the 1000W version!
I’ve now nearly done 500 miles on the bike. I absolutely love the bike, it is by far the best commute option and I think I have now tried all of them (including motorbike). I get to work in under an hour, which is how long the train takes, and I’m not a sweaty mess pke I used to be on my regular bike. All in all this was an excellent purchase.
Just received my stealth today,it came in a large box,all I had to do was straighten the handle bars and put the pedals on. I charged up the battery,took it for a spin, well what can I say I was laughing out loud, it was amazing. I haven’t even de-restricted it yet. If anyone is considering buying one, just get one! You won’t regret it!
I’m a very very happy customer,the best decision I made this year.
Many thanks to you all at cyclotricity. Proud to buy British.
Hi Cyclotricity, with Special thanks to Zak and to Peter in tech support, both answered many questions I had with great patience and knowledge of their product.
Zak arranged very quick delivery of a 250W Stealth to my home address, the bike arrived on the correct day and all we had to do was fit the peddles and handlebars and saddle, tighten up a couple of bits, charge the battery and we were off! Went to Aldbury Village Fete on Bank Holiday Monday near Tring in Hertfordshire and the Stealth did not miss a beat, went up Tring Hill with no bother just a little peddle assist. The bike had a lot of interest shown in it by several people and because it is a nice modern looking mountain bike style it was appealing to all ages and I let a couple of people have a go on it, both were very impressed. So thank you Zak and Peter for making my day out and many days out in the fute so enjoyable!
Hullo Zac , today on my way home , my knee gave me a pedalling problem , but the Sahara got me home in great style . Now completed 200+ miles and enjoying the freedom this great bike gives me . At age 84 , I need to have a machine I can trust and the Sahara gives me that confidence . So thanks for your great service , Peter .
I wanted to thank you. The free wheel was installed for me as I had requested, thanks again. The package arrived on Friday April 18th and was in good condition. Shipping was much faster then I had expected. I installed the motor on Sunday and yesterday I took it out for a ride. I was very happy with the speed and how quite the motor is. It was easy to install and the waterproof quick connects are great. I will be buying a second motor kit from you in May. I have a new bike that I will be building and will keep the old bike for a backup.
