Product Description

This new Currie Electro-Drive Conversion Kit easily transforms a standard bicycle and converts it into a modern electric powered ride.

Amazon.com

This new Currie Electro-Drive Conversion Kit transforms a standard bicycle into an electric powered ride for power-assisted biking. The kit features Currie's patented Electro-Drive System with a 450-watt brushed side-mount motor with rear wheel drive. The space-efficient rack mounted battery pack system also houses all of the motor control electronics. The kit includes one 24-volt/10-Ah battery pack and a Currie Smart charger to recharge the pack. The rack also has a second slot that allows you to insert a second, optional battery pack if you want to double your travel range.

Installation and Compatibility:
Designed for easy installation, the Power Kit is compatible with most 26-inch wheel mountain or comfort style bicycles (Please note: the kit cannot be fitted on bikes with a rear suspension swingarm). The drive wheel is spaced for a standard 7-speed freewheel that is common on many bikes today. If the bike that you are planning on converting has something other then a 7-speed freewheel, the kit may still be fitted. However, Currie strongly recommends that the conversion be made by an authorized Currie Dealer.

Recently purchased this kit to help with some of the hills we have here in Dayton OH. I use my bike for commuting. I installed the kit on a used full suspension mountain bike. I purchased a new Shimano Tourney 7Spd 14-28T Freewheel to go with it as well as a heavy duty kickstand. I recommend you do the same. Installation took a couple of hours since the kit isn't really made for this type of bike. If you are not mechanically talented you should probably find help from someone who is because installation is necessarily flexible to fit as many bikes as possible. Tools needed are wrenches to fit your bike, a set of metric Allen wrenches, #2 Phillips screwdriver and tire tools. I won't go into details as the manual is here:

Some notes on the installation:
First I recommend some thread lock, like Henkel Corp 209728 Loctite Blue Threadlocker, since not all fasteners have lock-nuts or lock-washers and will vibrate loose eventually. The kit comes with some extras but not many. You will probably also want some extra zip-ties to tie the wires to the frame. Make sure all fasteners are tight after assembly and check them daily for the first few days as metal mounting straps will "set" over time allowing fasteners to become loose. Be sure the wiring isn't going to get pinched in any way or is allowed to rub on any moving parts like wheels, chains or brakes. The kit is fairly heavy so the heavy duty

The kit came complete. Instructions were more pictures than instruction, but most of the installation was obvious. Some of the hardware was too short and not strong enough. had to buy machine bolts to substitute. Once the installation was complete, the bike rode great. Its exactly what I was looking for. An electric bike conversion to a bike I already own.

Review of Currie Electric Kit

The Currie Electric Kit works great!!! I used to love to bike around cities in Louisiana. The swamps made everything flat on streets. Then I moved to Texas and the hills were a real issue with biking. I go to a college night school with very limited car parking space. I also live a bit far from the closest bus stop, and library. In burning Texas heat that can be a nightmare on foot. I tried seven brands of electric, and gas scooters. Most were just toys, meant only to be opened by kids on Christmas, and to break in a day or two. My last gas motor scooter worked one day before it never worked again. Yet the Currie brand kit works just like I had hoped my other scooters would work, but never did! (It did require a special Freewheel Remover to put the cassette onto the wheel. There is no way to use household tools around this issue, be sure to buy one at a bike shop for 14 dollars. Watch how to install it on E-Bikes on Youtube.) It has driven miles every day for several weeks. It cuts my bike time in half. One charge lasts many days, so the 200 charge limit on discount batteries lasts for a very long time. I am far smaller then the 250 pound full power strength limit, so the bike power was not limited. It drives me so fast up hills that I sometimes leap for a foot or two in the air, like a bike riding Dukes of Hazard episode with ramp leap. It consistently takes you 20 miles an hour at full throttle for four hours per battery. It did not slow, even up 70 and 80 degree slope hills. I did not need to touch the pedals at all. (I had to have the breaks tightened on my bike because it was moving too fast for safety with the older default break position.) It was less then an eighth of the cost of my other scooters!

I purchased this a little over a month ago so I have only had a few weeks to test it. First what you see in the picture is what you get.

26" wheel with motor already mounted
24V Lead Acid battery pack
Rack
Throttle Control
Recharger

Installation was pretty easy with a couple of exceptions. The first problem I had was that you need to take the freewheel (gears) off your old back wheel and that requires a special tool. My local bikeshop did it for $5. The second problem was that the lock for the battery pack and the hole in the pack itself did not line up. So I couldn't lock down the battery pack. I removed the lock and drilled it out to make it work, but the lock itself is pretty loose now.

As for performance I was just looking for something to help me peddle back uphill from work and it does that well. I haven't tested the battery life, but on my 2 mile ride each way I can go 5 days a week without recharging. I am right around 200 pounds and on flat ground I can zip around with ease. Going uphills you do need to peddle, but what once I had to do in my very lowest gear I can now do in high gear with ease. In fact I don't shift anymore I keep my bike in the highest gear and I use the electic motor to help me get going and to go uphills.

If you want something to do all the work you might want to look at something else. But if you just need an assist from timt to time this is a great kit.
