After a year and a half of researching electric bikes, and even buying an Evolo, which was super heavy and very poorly designed, I was finally able to ask the right questions, and hunt for the right solution.
I wanted a full size 26in tire, rugged, folding, lightweight electric bike. Something I could ride if the motor ran out of steam, something I could fold in to any trunk. A bike I could take for serious offroading, or look sharp riding downtown. My solution was buying the hill topper kit for it's lightweight and small though strong motor hiding so stelthy, no one knows I ride an electric bike, so it's less interesting to theives or cops wanting to give me a hard time on bike paths.
I combined the kit with a new Montague Paratrooper, a bike the military paratroopers jump out of planes with strapped to their backs.
My cost for the new rugged bike that folds in to any trunk, and a 20 mile lithium kit 2k. Total weight 43 pounds. I challange anyone to beat the laundry list of benefits this particular combo can provide. And not only does it turn heads everywhere I go, it's super stylin at the same time, not looking like most geeky electric bikes.
Two years riding it every day everywhere this kit is solid as a rock, the staff totally helpful, the kit a work of artistic simplicity and style.
Can't say enough about the company, the kits, the motor, and the performance. As they say in Spinal Tap, this one, it's an 11!

I ordered my Hilltopper on Sunday afternoon, It arrived Thursday. I had the neighbors grandson 16 yrs old help me put it on and readjust my brakes. My Schwinn Meridian Trike is now even better and I can get home from the Walmart with my groceries before my ice cream melts. I had an electric front hub motor on a Meridian before and it was not nearly as easy to install or use. It also cost more. I will be telling everyone I know about the Hilltopper.

I spent an afternoon carefully unpacking, reading, charging and installing my motor. The wheel went right into the fork and tightened down. I used a torque wrench as instructed. I mounted the battery down by the peddles using a water bottle holder that was already there. I held the battery pack nice and tight. The wires then ran from there. I had a canvas carrier on my handlebars and that is where I stored all of the excess wired. It turned out to be a really nice installation.
Now on to riding. Wow, what fun. Now I can go up that long hill (80 foot rise in 1/2 mile) without any strain. I am 76 years old and the motor is a God send for me. No more walking my bike on hills. Spring is coming soon and I will be out racking up the miles. Thanks Hill Topper

Received my kit in a few days. Installed it in minutes on my 2014 Giant Cypress. They are a perfect match, and seem to be made for each other. It is the dead of winter here, so my first few runs were in about 20 degree weather. I have made 3-ten mile trips thus far, using the motor on hills and headwinds only. The 12 mile lithium battery has had plenty of power left each time. The light weight of the kit means that you can pedal normally without any noticeable drag. My other electric bikes are heavy, and hard to pedal without the motor. I am pedaling all the time anyway, but now the wind and hills are not a factor. The only modification that I made was to make the push button a little bigger. I can't wait until summer!
