    Keeping up with the wife

    I'm 80 and my wife is a good ways younger and likes to bike.. last week we were out for 18 miles on a local rail trail. Love my Hill Topper..it levels the effort. 

    She gets exercise and I can keep up for the conversation. Got back and still had three lights on the lithium battery.

    I love this invention

    I am 66yr old with bad heart failure. Staying at home was boring but I did not have enough energy to peddle around the block. Very short rides. Now I can go for a 45 minute ride. The motor gets the bike up to speed then I peddle until tired and then hit the throttle and rest for a minute. I don't quit and go back home. It turned my 15 yr old Walmart Schwinn into a Cadillac. Life is better.

    Electric Bike on the Road!

    Bought the ProPack Lithium, shipped Feb10, arrived here, Calgary Canada, Feb21. Fast service from Clean Republic. 

    Started the conversion today, Feb23, on the 26" wheeled, 2-speed cruiser this afternoon at 2PM. Built the wheel, converted the bike and test rode at 6PM. Original weight of Cruiser, including fenders, rear rack and studded Schwalbe tires: 32 pounds. New weight of electric bike: 47 pounds. 

    GPS measured speed on snow covered streets at -19.5C (-3.1F): 26.4kph (16.4mph). 

    Will post PICs within the next couple of days. Excellent experience - thanks Clean Republic. Components top notch, kit complete, and everything went together easily.

    Car free in New England

    Just wanted to share my story/review on the Hill Topper. This went on a 2010 Redline Conquest Sport. I've had the kit for one week now, and it has been great. Install was quick, and I think i spent more time cleaning up the wires, than putting everything on. When I frist took it out I was a bit concerned. Yes, the bike gets a bit heavier, and in my case it also felt weird having a few extra pounds on the rear. I thought I made a mistake, and wouldn't like it. But that changed by the morning of day 3. I have a 8 mile round trip to work, if I don't go anywhere else. I have a few hills, and the wind can be a real pain. Doesn't seem like much of a commute, but when I get to work, I change, and get to business. No sit down for coffee, no real breaks, and i'm there up to 15 hours, almost all on my feet. By the end of the week I don't even want to ride a mile. But like I said, by day 3 there was no doubt that I was keeping the Hill Topper. I was use to the extra pounds on the bike. And my legs, refreshed everyday, and I still got my workout. Bottom line, I am able to enjoy my rides even more, still burn of calories, and melt away stress faster. I also wanted to add a few other details. In the past week we have had snow, melting snow, and ice. The H-T has been fine going through it all. I also have studded tires on, and have had no problems going over ice with the kit on.

    New life to old mountain bike

    I had this mid-90s GT rusting in the tool shed so I decided to clean it, restore it, and convert it to an electric bike to ride to work. I sanded off the rust, replaced only the seat and grips, painted it flat black, and bolted on an Army ammo box that was also in the shed. I lock the battery in the ammo box so I won't have to carry it around, and I ran the wires under the top bar and through a hole I cut into the ammo box. Most people don't realize it's motorized; they just love the look!

    Dahon Espresso Folding Hill Topper, Fairfield, Connecticut

    I just installed your excellent hill topper on my 2006 Dahon Espresso 26" folding bike. It delivers as promised and was an easy installation. I am very pleased with it. 

    Now those few steep hills around my house will not keep me from enjoying some great rides and getting a lot of exercise.

    The AMAZING Pro Pack put to use...

    I received my Pro Pack about a month ago and after a few obstacles, my electric bike is running great. After putting extra washers to give a little space for the mtr to run freely and finding the right spoke length for 27" wheels, I'm very happy with the results. I live near the ocean and always get that offshore breeze to ride against when heading to school. My school isn't that far away... but after 3-hour long basketball practices, the last thing I want to do is pedal home (with occasional wind heading toward the beach). The Hill Topper is truly amazing... I can't wait to upgrade my kit to 36 volts for a little extra speed and distance (more obstacles). I wish more people in Newport Beach rode electric bikes to work and/or school! For me it would truly be a great sight instead of a seeing Mercedes' and Porsche's all over the place. Come and check out my youtube video of this bike. I will be uploading it in the near future...
