The Cycle to Work Scheme is a Government-backed initiative to encourage people to cycle to their place of work, and consequently reduce environmental pollution. It's also a way for you to save money on the cost of your cycle and spread the cost over a number of months, through your pay packet.

How do I get a conversion kit through Cycle to Work?

The paperwork required differs for each scheme and should be available from your employer or from the links below for each scheme:

Cycle Solutions

Due to the cost of running the Cycle To Work Schemes we have to add a 10% fee on top of the kit price to maintain profitability, otherwise we cannot afford to be apart of the scheme. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Let's help fit your kit

Electric bike conversion kits are still quite new to the UK and inevitably you'll have questions about how to fit your kit. The good news is that you can contact us to ask us, either by calling us, using the live chat or sending us an email via the website.

We'll always offer straightforward and clear advice and, because we have fitted conversion kits hundreds of different bikes, we know exactly what we're talking about.

It's all very well selling conversion kits but unless you've fitted one from the ground up then you don't necessarily know what makes a quality kit fit - our experience in building electric bikes gives us a unique insight and therefore we can offer to fit your kit for you!

Convert ANY bike into an eBike!

You love your bike, but you wish you could ride it longer and further. It's no secret that biking is a great way to get exercise, but sometimes the distance or terrain can make it difficult to keep going. The Front Drive eKit is the perfect solution! With this easy-to-install conversion kit, you can turn your regular bike into an electric bike in just minutes. Now you can ride farther and faster than ever before.

The Front Drive eKit is the perfect solution for cyclists who want to enjoy the convenience of power assistance on your ordinary bike. The kit includes a powerful Lithium-Ion battery, and installation is simple. You'll be able to tackle even the steepest inclines without breaking a sweat. It's so easy that anyone can use it - just turn it on and go!


High Torque Brushless Motor

Our small and powerful motor generates 40nm of torque, enough to assist you up a steep 30% incline with ease. Paired with a custom designed controller algorithm the motor has no drag even when powered off! 

 

High Performance Lithium-Ion Battery

The lithium-ion battery pack is a sleek, compact unit that can be mounted in two different ways. The frame mounting option bolts on to your downtube where it is easily accessible and the pannier rack mounted option that is neatly fitted into a pannier rack (provided with the battery) where the control box is tucked away.

Pedal Assistance System

A thumb throttle is supplied with the kit as standard but it’s pedal assistance that will truly transform your riding experience.

Why not upgrade your conversion kit by adding one of our optional Pedal Assistance Systems (PAS)? A Pedal Assistance System is a device that senses your pedalling and makes your kit give automatic assistance, i.e. you do not have to press the throttle throughout your journey.

Pedal Assistance System - Basic LED

This is our basic PAS upgrade which includes a handlebar dashboard allowing you to shift between three power levels; low, medium or high. This display shows your battery level and gives an indication of your speed.

Pedal Assistance System - Advanced LCD

This is our top of the range electric bike kit upgrade for you who want to combine your conversion kit with state of the art technology, yet at a surprisingly good value. This package combines a Pedal Assistance System with an advanced LCD handlebar monitor which, not only gives you five levels of power, but also displays your speed, journey distance, time, average speed and many other readings.

Fork Compatibility

The front forks on your bike need to have 100mm clearance between the drop-outs (which is the case with the vast majority of bikes).

The fork drop-outs themselves need to be the standard 10mm size (this is also the most common size for fork drop-outs). If you happen to have the slightly smaller 9mm drop-out, you could file them down by 0.5mm on either side for the motor to fit. Please seek professional assistance for this part as doing it wrongly will be entirely at your own risk.

The front motor is compatible with the majority of disc brakes. However, certain disc brake calipers are wider than usual which means they may block the hub motor from fitting inside the forks. Please refer to the following motor dimensions (mm).

 

Pedal Assist Sensor & Your Bikes Bottom Bracket

The bottom bracket is the area where the crank arms go through the frame. Our pedal assist sensors fit square taper bottom brackets and threaded bottoms brackets. If your bike has a Square Taper Bottom Bracket or Threaded Bottom Bracket, you don't need to do anything as this is the standard sensor size.

If your bike has a Press Fit Bottom Bracket, get in touch as this sensor won't fit. We can recommend a better fitting kit for you.
