Hill Topper Electric Bicycle Conversion Kit (SLA battery version)

So I recently received the Hill Topper Kit with SLA (sealed-lead-acid) battery that I purchased direct from the website.

Shipping and handling:
Shipping took about one week. Box was a little banged up, but everything was intact.

Wheel/tire/motor:
This is a 250 watt hub motor, the tire supplied seems like it's a 26" mountain bike tire. and the rim looks like a generic rim. I don't have much knowledge about the quality of the wheel, but it looks pretty sturdy..I forgot to weigh the wheel but I think it was stated to be around 4 pounds.

Installation:
This kit states it can be installed quickly within 5 minutes. I believe that is true if you have a pretty generic bicycle with the correct clearance for the motor and dropout width. If there is a clearance issue, you're going to have to do some modding; with washers/spacers and filing the dropout to create more clearance width. Unfortunately for me, my bike had slightly narrower dropout width so I filed each end until the axle fit snug. Furthermore, they offer a disc brake compatible wheel version. I ordered this option to fit with my Avid disc brakes, and it worked out great! Overall installation time could have been less if I had a better file (used a small multi-tool file). Took me about an hour to get everything setup ready to go. Although zip-ties are provided, I bought some velcro straps to secure the wires better.

Battery (SLA battery):
So I am speaking only for the Sealed-lead-acid battery. And it is pretty heavy at 10.4 pounds! I got this version instead of the lithium primarily because of the cost difference.

Size: 26'' Wheel + 12 Mile Range Battery
I want to reach out to all the big guys thinking about getting the Hill Topper Electric Bike Kit. I weight in at 287 LB and the motor is powerful enough to pull me up all the hills on my commute. I used to have to get dropped off and picked up at the park and ride 5 days a week, but now I ride my bike saving gas and time and get all the exercise I need to lose the weight. I have been riding for 3 weeks and lost 5 pounds and would never have done this with Clean Republic amazing Hill Topper Kit giving me the boost I needed.
P.S. Don't buy from this seller it's much cheaper from the Clean Republic site.

Update 3/3/2012
Hill topper still workers great! I'm down to 238lb and ride 40 miles a week. I'll post a before and after pic once I get to my goal of 190 LB.

July 2, 2011. Review for hill topper or electric bike kit
I just come back from a bike ride with the hilltoper from a little bit in the mountainous rough area and this was the first time that the battery went empty suddenly. So far I have biked about 150 miles with the hilltoper without any problems and I am pleased with its performance. I wish that charging could be somewhat faster. Right now it takes about four hours but it would be nice if they had an upgrade charger that maybe reduces that charging time to less than two hours.

When the battery suddenly died today I think they could easily improve the driver software to give a little bit of a beeping sound in the motor when you have like 5 min. or 10% of the charge left.
For normal street biking I think the on off button is fine however there are two situations where it is not ideal.
First situation is when you try to ride a little bit slower than 15 mi./h to may be staying with a companion who is driving with you. In that case you always need to toggle on off and it's kind of inconvenient to control this.
The second situation is when you are (easy) mountain biking the on off switch also is not ideal because when you turn it on I find it is too fast and again you need to go in kind of manual pulsing mode to make use of the hilltoper in that case it would really be nice if there were an adjustable power level may be quarter, half, three quarter and full or something like this. possibly even a switch on the battery.
In my case I ordered the kit with battery and front wheel and all the cables necessary. Unfortunately the front wheel was not very well laced many spokes were loose and I had to redo the entire wheel. I think this is a sign of poor quality control. A wheel like this should never have been shipped.

Size: 26'' Wheel + 12 Mile Range Battery
I have always lived in very walkable neighborhoods, a mile or less from downtown. I walk to the store, walk to restaurants, walk to hang out with friends, and so on. A few years ago, however, I moved to a hilly cul-de-sac neighborhood, three and a half miles from the city's downtown area. The nearest store is a truck stop by the interstate. Not pedestrian friendly at all. At the same time, I have a health issue that benefits from exercise, but can really backfire on me if I wear myself out too much.

So, in my new town, anything I wanted to do required getting in the car. I like it here, and the people especially, but I was eager for the day my boyfriend retires and we can go someplace not so automobile centric.

I was reading a story about the Sanyo Eneloop, an electric bike that I don't think you can get in the U.S. Anyway, it's way out of my price range. Also, I'm not a gear head who collects expensive gadgets. But I could see how an electric bike could make downtown, parks, and the grocery store a lot closer and keep me in the sunshine and out of my car.

I did a little shopping on the internet, and ultimately chose the HillTopper with the 20mile Li-ion battery. I am very pleased with it. I ride it everywhere. My boyfriend bought one a week later, and has been riding to work everyday.

One day we went out for a long ride (for us) to the river and then downtown and it started to rain. It was an uncomfortable ride home, and we both got soaked. We had to ride through drainages of 6" of water. We'll try not to do that again. However, I can report that the bikes did just fine. No problems with the battery or the hub getting wet at all.

I can't imagine why everybody doesn't ride electric bikes. Especially non athletic types. It's brought me back the lifestyle I love.
