Two or three wheeled electric bicycles

Oxygen Emate electric bike, electric bicycle, ebike

Hi I Own my wonderful Electric bike. It's made by Oxygen Bicycles and I just love it. It's a 36V motor with lithium ion battery, takes me everywhere in London. The one I bought is Oxygen Emate Explorer Got is at the good price for the quality. If anyone looks for an electric bike then I can recommend this one. I had it for the past 12 months and the only thing I had to do is to change the brake pads and recharge the battery. Definitely good value bike for money.

Crappy Japanese commuter bicycle

Japanese commuter bikes always have a front basket. This was a great place to install all the wiring, right on top of the powered wheel, which kept the wires short and neat.
The original wheel was 27" and the new wheel is 26", so I had an extra 30mm of space after lowering the brake and fender to match the new wheel size.
I also artificially raised the basket about 30mm, and this clearance was perfect to slide in a 75mm thick LiFePo4 battery.
