E-Bike conversion at Cycle Tech Oldham

E-Bike conversion

Have you ever thought about an E-Bike conversion?

For those who want to enjoy the pleasure of riding a bike but without having to struggle up hills, an electric bike might sound like the perfect answer. However, you might not want to buy a new electric bike or you might already have a cycle you love and want to keep it. For those reasons, an electric bike or E-Bike conversion may be the perfect solution.

The kits we fit are fully guaranteed and fitted to a high standard.  They are an excellent alternative to buying a new e-bike being a fraction of the cost.

At Cycle Tech Oldham we offer a full design and fit service.  Different power, battery and drive options are available from our supplier Panda eBikes so we can design the best electric conversion to your requirements and budget.

The conversions are available to fit almost any bike.  They are carried out in our own fully equipped workshop by fully qualified bicycle Technicians.  All converted bikes are also fully road tested and set up ready to go as part of the fitting service.

With prices starting from as little as £525.00 (including parts and fitting) for a front wheel drive system it makes an electric conversion very affordable.  We can also offer 12 months 0% finance on your conversion

We have a demo bike in the shop for customers who want to see how the bikes are converted and even take for a test ride!
