Love the reading for available power left on battery!!! Also is it normal for charger to hear up after charging battery. Only charged up 45 minutes and it was quite warm.

Wife loves it

Install a little more difficult than planned with having to use shims and adjust disk brake placement but well worth the extra effort. Wife loves getting gout in the evening to get fresh air now and easily conquers gradual slopes. Can't wait to get on our local Rail Trail.

These are great!

These kits are great & are very easy to install. Use the instructions but if you normally work on bicycles you don’t even need them. Anyway, the only issue I have is I can’t get it up to top speed. I am a heavier rider at 252 lbs but the power it puts out is very impressive for someone of my weight. I really hope E-Switchy continues to innovate, grow & maybe make a stronger motor and/or battery for us heavier riders. Thank you & I really hope you guys continue to grow.
P.S. I installed my switch three on my gravel bike different than recommended. Check out the photos.

Impressive

I’m impressed how easy it is to install & how easy it is to use. I wish it had a little more power since I am a heavier rider (250 lbs) but you can’t beat this kit. It’s at a very good price. My top speed so far is at 24 mph. That was exciting. I’m sure I can get it up to its maximum. Thank you E-Switchy!

Wireless LCD display

Good correspondence back and forth. Throttle works great . Came in two weeks to Florida. Was confident in it arriving the whole time.

It's wonderful to know it arrived in Florida within two weeks and that you felt confident throughout the process. We appreciate your support and look forward to serving you again in the future!

Turbocharged Commute

Installed the Switch Two on my Kona commute bike and after a week of rides I absolutely love it. Opted to installed the cabled thumb throttle for minimalist simplicity. Lets me dial in a little (or a lot) assist for getting up to speed after stop lights, or slaying those two hills. The water bottle style battery is secure, easy to remove, easy to charge… I go 10 miles a day and usually recharge it every other. Definitely recommend : )

We're also happy to hear that the water bottle style battery has been convenient for your daily rides. Thanks for recommending us, and happy riding!

Love it

I’m not a robot. This is the best conversion kit I have found after much research. I am super impressed with everything about my purchase. I would recommend e switch to anyone. The set up was super quick and very simple. I’m considering purchasing another one.

Hi Timothy,

Thank you so much for your positive review! We are thrilled to hear that our Switch Two Electric Bike Kit exceeded your expectations and that you found it easy to set up. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to see you again soon for another purchase. Happy riding!

First road bike conversion

After trying E-Swytchy for a little while, I'm happy with the kit. It's a front hub motor in a really light road bike so that I'm not wrestling with a heavy bike which is nice. I weigh 190 so the bike's top peddling speed at a top gear is about 20mph which I'm fine with. It makes it a funner ride overall and I'll be converting a gravel bike next so E-Swytchy stand by for me ordering another kit soon.

Hi Steven!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with our Switch Two Battery kit. We're thrilled to hear that it has made your road bike conversion a success and that you're enjoying the lighter weight. We can't wait to hear about your next conversion with our E-Switchy kit. Feel free to reach out if you need any assistance. Happy riding!

Great product, mileage could be better.

The reality is that it takes about 30 minutes to really get this done. Installing the tire takes maybe 5 minutes, but then theres the rest. Installing the throttle, installing the display, tightening everything and cleaning up. Not bad by any means but not 5 minutes either. Also, theres no way this get 37 miles. Maybe it it were power assisting or if you went 5-8 MPH but if you are pressing the throttle down, which is probably how most will use it, youll get MAYBE 15 miles.

Hi Yaniv!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Switch Two Electric Bike Kit. We appreciate your feedback and are glad to hear that overall you are happy with the product. We understand that the installation process may take longer than expected. As for the mileage, we apologize if it did not meet your expectations. The estimated 37 miles range is based on various factors such as terrain, weight, and usage. For example, that range has been tested on a 155LB rider weight, using a road bike with power pedal assist level set at 30% on flat surface. As you mentioned, using the throttle at times without pedal assist function will decrease the mileage, as well as uphills, rider weight and bike weight will all play a huge effect on the mileage. We suggest trying different settings and speeds to maximize the range. We hope this helps and thank you for choosing our product!

Old Lady With A Purpose

OMG. What a thrill! My bike is an old beach cruiser hybrid. I didn’t think this kit would work. Did a tune up on some basics that were necessary and put it all together in about 30 minutes. Not bad for a soon to be 65 year old woman. Before you know it I was off and running. I’ve always been active in sports and just wanted something to help me stay healthy and moving. I've been riding around town and at the beach and loving every minute of it. So far no issues. Don’t be afraid to talk to Customer Service they will answer all your questions and very kind.

Hi Karen,

Thank you so much for your review! We are thrilled that our Switch Two Electric Bike Kit has been a great addition to your beach cruiser. We're happy to hear that our Customer Service team was able to assist you, and we hope you continue to enjoy your rides. Keep it up, you're an inspiration!

Super easy install

Went on quick and easy and worked great. The only design issue is there was not enough documentation and guidance on now the switch acorn nut is used to activate the wheel. When I fully removed the nut, two rubber washers fell out along with the metal pin. Once I reassembled everything and learned the technique of hand tightening and then loosening it a few turns to activate the switch, it made more sense and is working. Please add that part to your instructional videos. Thanks.

Hi Steve!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are so glad to hear that you found the installation process of our Switch One Electric Bike Kit to be quick and easy. We appreciate your feedback about the lack of documentation on the switch acorn nut and we will definitely take that into consideration for future instructional videos. We're happy to hear that you were able to figure out the technique and get it working properly. Thank you for choosing our product! Happy riding!

Switch 1 wheel

So far it's operating as expected and advertised. No complaints or issues. It's an all around nice ride assist feature. I am glad I purchased this electric wheel kit upgrade for my bike

Hi Dennis,

Thank you for your positive feedback on our Switch One Electric Bike Kit! We're happy to hear that it is meeting your expectations and providing a smooth ride. We appreciate your purchase and hope you continue to enjoy the added assistance on your bike. Ride on!

Great kit if you love your current bicycle.

So far, so good! Bought this kit to add to my 2 year old bike. At 63 years old, I bought my wife an electric bike so we could ride together, and found that I had a hard time keeping up with her - especially on the hills. Researched buying an electric myself, but I love my bike - so I am glad I tried this. Great assist when wanted, but I still get a workout when I want. I have not tried all of the modes, but so far, I love this!

Hi John!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We're so happy to hear that our Switch Three Electric Bike Kit has been a great addition to your current bike. It's wonderful that you can now ride together with your wife and still get a good workout. We hope you continue to enjoy using the kit and discovering all the different modes. Have a great day!

Pretty nice e-bike kit

Before having the e-switchy I frequently used my Treck bicycle to get to and from work. I've always wanted more oomph for going faster or up hills. I sprung for the e-switchy two because I needed to have a removable battery that I could take inside away from the frigid temperatures the bike might be left out in. The kit arrived packed in a nice box. I'm pretty tool savy but it took me a lot longer than it was supposed to for me to assemble it. There's two options for a throttle that it comes with. I decided to go with the wired manual one. It's one less device for me to charge and with how I ride I either want the motor on or off and don't need all the special features. It comes with this extension thing for attaching the throttle if there's no more room on your handlebars but if you use it then your thumb won't be able to reach it. Instead what I did was cut off an inch of my right handlebar grip with a chop saw. Then I slid the throttle on to the bar with the grip. My thumb now reaches the throttle perfectly. The power and range work as advertised. I'm able to use higher gear settings both when I'm on a flat surface or ascending a huge hill. I of course still have to shift the bike into a much lower setting and pedal to get up a hill but I don't have to do it in the lowest setting like I used to. The whole thing isn't that heavy, I can still lift the bike up with the battery installed. My one gripe so far that even when you follow the instructions the 700c wheel I got isn't centered between the two forks on the front of the bike. I don't think this is an issue besides how the front rim breaks land on it, which is important. I got some special washers I'm hoping to space the wheel to where it needs to be. I'd recommend this product to whoever is interested.

Hi Drake,

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for our Switch Two Electric Bike Kit. We are glad to hear that you are enjoying the added power and range that it provides for your commute.

We apologize for any trouble you may have had with the assembly process and are happy to hear that you were able to find a solution for the throttle placement. It's great to know that the power and range are working as advertised for you.

Regarding the wheel centering issue, please keep in mind that you can always adjust the placement of the tab washers to ensure that the wheel is perfectly centered between the forks. You can either place both tab washers inside or both outside of the fork to achieve an equal distance. We hope this helps and we appreciate your recommendation to others.

Ride on!

Exceeded my expectations

The install on my Hase trike was fairly straightforward. The riding experience is better than expected. Some of the details on the video and instructions were a little ambiguous, including the app instructions, but customer service was surprisingly responsive. Battery life is equal or better than claimed. After a lot of research, I'm convinced I got the best-priced and better-quality kits available.

Easy installation for a mechanically declined woman

I always stayed away from anything that has to do with mechanics but since I don't have a reliable commute to work I decided to try something new this year and took a leap of faith to install this kit on my beloved bike! I DID IT! It took me a couple of tries but overall pretty easy installation, just follow the video and you'll be fine. Good notes on the paper installation guide as well, I am so proud of myself YAAAY! I wanna say it took me a solid 15-20 minutes and I am loving my bike now.

Super easy installation and great performance

Installation is very simple, took me less than 10 minutes, to swap the wheel and install the battery, the settings on the app actually took me a bit longer because i took my time to make sure everything is set up correctly. The performance is awesome, I pushed 30 miles and still had 20% battery remaining, I am pretty sure on my next ride I can clear 40+ miles range since my assist level is not that high and I am mostly using pedal assist vs throttle power only. The kit is very light making it very convenient to carry around with me anywhere.

Overall, great product, great company and impeccable customer service.

Switch Two

Finding out that my distance will not be upwards of the 37 miles. Closer to 28 miles. On the 36V battery.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your comment. As discussed over a phone call with our E-Switchy team. They have explained that the distance and speed will be affected by multiple factors such as rider body weight, bike weight, road slope and conditions, throttle power vs pedal assist power and percentage power set will all play an effect on the range and speed.

Waiting on Spring

Have not had an opportunity to make this conversion due to cold weather and recovering from a respiratory illness. But will submit a review in the coming weeks.

Excellent for commuters!

E-Switchy's Switch Two has turned my daily commute into an enjoyable ride. The mileage using pedal assist range is perfect for city travel, including hills! Yes where I live there are lots of hills and steep ones. I haven’t found a hill that this kit did not go over, I do sometimes pull cargo as well on my bike and load up my bike rack with groceries, still I am able to get over any hill grade so far. The battery is very light, removable battery makes charging easy. The battery and accessories I think adds about 12lb to my bike which is also nice in case you run out of battery you can still pedal your way home. The USB charging port is an excellent addition as well as the secure lock adds an extra layer of security, making it the ideal choice for urban commuters.
