Okay, I waited about three months before reviewing. This kit is the ticket! I weigh 170. I bought the ten mile lithium battery. When I first got the kit I decided to see if ten miles was realistic: I used my bike as a "motorcycle", no pedaling and went an honest ten miles, battery still had some power. That was on level ground, no wind, so ideal conditions. So, yes, it can take 170 pounds ten miles. I ride to work now most days, a fourteen mile round trip. I have never run out of battery power, but I do use the motor for uphill and windy conditions mostly. I have taken several 50 mile bike rides (mostly flat terrain), and used the motor for windy conditions and several small hills. Did not run out of power by end of the ride. I think what I like best about this is that it greatly increases my enjoyment of bicycling, I used to hate a steep hill near my house, now, no problem, I used to dislike long upgrades, or going into the wind... no longer. Now the whole time I'm cycling it is enjoyable. Increased enjoyment = increased riding = increased fitness and some small weight loss. I've probably put about 1000 miles on my bike since installing kit. If lithium batteries ever come down in price I might consider getting the 20 mile battery and take along the ten mile battery and do some SERIOUS long distance biking. For now the ten mile battery has exceeded my expectations. Oh, one last thing, I really wasn't expecting the 250 watt motor to feel as powerful as it does... it's really a pretty good boost, I'd say it equals about 75% of my max pedaling power, so on average it seems that pedaling plus motor together seems to be about double the power of pedaling alone. Nice!

Nishiki Hilltopper Cafe Racer
Elton (Eugene, OR) 9/18/2014 10:04 PM
I'm big (235lbs), ride an xl Cafe Racer; matching 1.75, front brake, suspension sissy bar, banana seat and clubman handlebars - did I mention the bike is heavy?! The 8mile lithium kit makes my 16 tooth single speed go just under top speed with vigorous peddling - seems about perfect to me. Motor is mostly quiet and super discrete - most people can't tell I'm riding a motorized bike (except when I pass them maybe). Overall I love the kit and transformed this retro head turner into my everyday commute.

This bike has given me FREEDOM!!
Bonnie (Boston, MA) 9/12/2014 4:51 PM
I have low vision, so I can't drive a car. But now, with this bike, I can ride around town, go wherever I need to, and zip right up the hills with no problem! I had a friend install the wheel, but it wasn't hard, it took him about half an hour. This kit is amazing as it has given me independence I never had before. All my friends just got in their cars and drove places but I had to be driven; now I can go places too! Thank you!!

Tandem
Marin (Santa Barbara) 7/16/2014 12:01 PM
This is like a drug: with the push of a button, no more hill. Expensive yes, but its Sooo nice. I installed this on my tandem I use to take my daughter to school (6 mi each way). I bought it used, with the heavy lead-acid battery, and everything worked perfectly, there was plenty of power for my daughter (85 lb) & I (135 lb) to get up hills easily (with pedalling also). I found I could usually or almost do 2 round trips on one charge, but its such a rude surprise when the battery runs out at the very last hill, I ended up charging it every round trip. The heavy battery is kind of a pain to deal with (moving it off the bike to the charger every night), the weight meant the rack had to be really solid - but acceptable. I found no degradation in the battery life over the 2 years I used it (1-2x/wk)

Bought two kits for me and my boyfriends new 2014 trek verve 1's. Fit was tight in the forks but worked. Had to file the drop outs a little, no big deal. The wheels were a little out of true, my boyfriend true the wheels himself. Lots of fun goes 17.5-18 mph top speed. We can climb hills in our neighborhood at 13-15 mph, while pedaling of course. We got the sprinter 10 mile lithium kit, range seems good so far. We don't mind pedaling, rode 8 miles and still had plenty of battery power. Great product, highly recommended. Thank you
