Rear wheel. You need to change the sprocket as a new rear wheel is supplied.

I believe the kit would fit the wheel but you may have an issue with the throttle cable reaching the handlebar due to the length of the frame. The cable was too short for my Sun Bicycle EZ1 Sport recumbent. I put the kit on my mountain bike with no problem. Hope this helps.

It has a smart charger that comes in the kit. You can leave it plugged in and not worry about it. When it is fully charged, a green light will turn on on the charger and then it will just maintain the battery. You always want to keep it plugged in when you're not using the bike. The longer you leave an SLA battery unplugged the more sulfation that will build up in it over time. This decreases the full charge capacity of the battery and you'll begin to lose range. If and when you get the kit you'll need to do 2-3 full discharge and recharges of the battery pack to break it in correctly.

There is a button on mine for pedal assist. I believe you would need a pedal sensor to make it operate. What part of the world are you from that hassle you for a 450 watt motor? The US allows 750 watts max as long as you have pedals on the bike whether you use them or not.

I believe it will. The only challenge to installing this kit is removing your freewheel sprocket to put on the new rim you receive as part of the kit. You get a new wheel that has a sprocket to accept the chain for the motor drive on the left side. You can purchase a freewheel removal tool from the Park Tool website which is what I did, or take your wheel to a bike shop and have them remove the freewheel. Then you just spin the new one on by hand. I hope this helps.

The answer is yes, but the wheel that replaces your current rear wheel is not a quick release.

Probly not as the size restrictions involved relate to the back tire which has to be mountain bike not road or even hybrid size. I tried.

The kit supplies you with the rim/wheel. It is a 26" rim. If your bike will accept that it should work for you. If you want to use only the motor, you needn't worry about the gearset. The supplied wheel has a sprocket and chain for the motor.
