Welcome to Chiltern-Ebikes Aston Clinton. Over the past year we have built and tested over 30 e-bikes using the Bafang 250w Mid drive motor. We are mountain bike specialists and are constantly developing our conversions and have recently completed a conversion of a 20 year old GT mountain bike that made a really great retro bike look with electric assistance. We are now offering a conversion on carefully selected retro bikes that have the right look and specification.

These quality older bikes with 26 wheels and disc brakes were cutting edge once but have been out paced by the new breed of bikes with larger wheels and greater travel on the suspension. This is great for riding a non assisted bike but the benefits of easier rolling don't really matter on an e-bike. A little like an old classic car that has been converted to electric these classic bike conversions are relevent today as re-cycling a bike that is no longer in regular use is good for the planet and an electric bike can replace the car on short local trips. The mountain bikes we convert are not cheap entry level bikes nor do we fob you off with batteries with a low out put.

Our 14.6 ah battery is rated at 5256 watt hours 36v x 14.6 ah = 5256 watt hours giving our bikes the same range as most bikes costing significantly more. Don't forget our bikes come as standard with a throttle which is legal on a converted bike and turn a mountain bike into a lightweight electric motorcycle. Kona Hahanna 19 Aluminium frame (Medium).

26 alloy double wall rims. 26 x 2.25 Maxxis Knobbly Tyres. Shimano Acera rear mech 8 speed. New 8 cassette speed cassette and chain. Bafang 250w BBS mid drive motor with C961 Display.
New 14.6 ah Battery Complete with Charger. The 14.6 ah 36v battery comprises class A Samsumg/LG 18650 cells and is rated at approx 5000 watt hours. This will typically give a minimum range of 30 miles using the throttle at max power with little or no pedal input. The range under normal use is 40-50 miles but can be extended by conservative use of the assistance.
Riding in power level one is great for touring where maximum range is required, this could be 60 miles, two is advised for road work and a speed of 13-16 mph can be maintained without much effort. Pedaling hard in levelwill achieve 20-25 on the flat. The throttle will provide a boost like a turbo in any power level and is extremely useful when climbing hills or in headwind as it can be used in bursts to rest your legs so you can maximise the exercise benefit like mini work outs. On a typical ride I will personally cover 30 miles in maximum power level 3 with short bursts of pedal input and or throttle to achieve an average speed of 20-25 mph giving a great cardio work out. If you are commuting you can use the throtttle on its own so you arrive at work fresh having not pedaled at all.

The throttle feature is not available on new factory bikes but is allowed on conversions and is extremely beneficial if you have a minor disability, knee injury or are unfit as you can keep up with traffic and other fitter cyclists. The rate of effort you put in down to you but your fitness will improve just as much or more on a ebike compared to a conventional bicycle because you will want to ride greater distances and will be able to get gentle exercise for a longer period.


You will also find a ebike immeasurably greater fun. We advise that chain and cassette are new on every bike and are expected to last 1000 miles depending on use, with these bikes you can pull away from stand still using the throttle only in 3/4/5 gear comfortably as 1/2nd are crawler gears for hills. Delivered fast and free tracked and insured via Parcel Force 24.
Our E-Bike conversion which has all the specifications and power of the factory bikes but also has a throttle. These converted bikes typically weigh 2-3 KG less than a factory full suspension E-Bike. On paper the specification of the brakes, front fork and battery capacity are almost identical and like all E- bikes they have a 250w motor. A fresh battery from our UK supplier who custom makes them for us with Class A 18650 Lithium Ion cells is ordered and any new parts that are required. We also offer fitting of great value accessories such as a rear carrier. Where possible we arrange to deliver the bike ourselves to hand it over personally. This saves on packaging, re-assembly and means you have a ready to ride bike. Zonal surcharging applies for the following postcodes. Zones 2 The Highlands and Islands of Scotland postcodes IV, HS, KA27-28, KW, PA20-49, PA60-78, PH17- 26, PH30-44, PH49-50, ZE.
