Here at E-Motion we don’t mess around when it comes down to quality and reliability of electric bikes we sell. Thats one of the reasons we are now stocking Flyer. Flyer’s line up features a wide selection of crossbar, step through and folding ebikes with multiple colour options on selected models. Flyer distinguishes itself by the high-quality, hard-wearing components from well-known brands & all bikes come with a five year guarantee.
Later this year (or possibly early 2012) we are expecting to recieve one of the first batches of Wisper’s DaaHub retro fit ebike kit. Just like the kits from Bionx and other manufacturers this simple kit will allow you to convert your existing bike into an electric bike. The DaaHub kit provides you with a pedal assist mode as well as throttle. We had chance to test the DaaHub out for the first time at EuroBike this year on a BMX and full suspension mountain bike and we’re very pleased with its performance on both bikes. You can read more about our first experience with the DaaHub here.
This post is part of our EuroBike series. We ventured across to EuroBike 2011 specifically to check out the latest and greatest offerings in the electric bike world.
While over in EuroBike this year I got the chance to try out Wisper’s new electric bike retro fit system the ‘DaaHub’. The DaaHub system is designed to easily electrify your existing push bike giving you the advantage of being about to transfer the kit to other bikes and of course allowing you to pick any bike, not being limit to just the ebike market.
DaaHub Mountain Bike
The first DaaHub fitted bike I got to try at EuroBike was a mountain bike. The battery was fitted on the down tube of the frame, keeping the wait almost neutral. The control unit and throttle sat gracefully on the handlebar, just like your standard electric bike. The DaaHub kit rode just like a standard Wisper bike such as a 905se which I thought was brilliant, giving me the same feedback and feeling as a purpose built ebike but with the benefits of higher performance bike. This doesn’t take away the feeling of the bike as it was originally built, just amplifies your experience and of course, your pedal power!
I couldn’t wait to jump on the DaaHub BMX, its like nothing we’ve seen before! The setup on the BMX was very different to the mountain bike setup which made it all the more interesting. The battery placement was very interesting, as its suspended off the seat post and simply hangs slightly over the rear wheel. The throttle system is also unique and unlike anything I have seen before. The throttle system is a row of three buttons (low, medium & high) sat next to the handlebar. You push and hold the button speed of your choice and away you go! Alternatively you can double push a button and it will lock itself on that speed, just like cruise control on a car. This type of throttle is very practical for something like a BMX or even a mountain bike, leaving the handlebars untouched and of course doesn’t allow you to hit the throttle by accident.
Whats In The Box?
Front wheel fitted with hub motor & Kenda ebike tyre (20″, 26″ or 28″ size, available with disc or calliper mounts).
Dock fitted with controller, clamp & connections.
Sensor kit with mount and magnetic disc./li>
LCD Flight Deck (Handlebar control unit).
All connections and wiring
Brake sensors & DaaCube
Having had an extended time spent with the DaaHub on EuroBikes indoor test track, I can confirm the DaaHub is something to get excited about. Not only does it offer value for money, the ability to fit on a mountain bike as well as a smaller wheeled bike such as a BMX and a huge 32 mile range.
When it comes to ebikes, speed and acceleration really count. The DaaHub kit has no problems in taking you from standing to its 15mph speed limit in seconds and effortlessly.The entire kit weights in at 6.9Kg so when fitted to a bike, you should have the advantage of being a few kilos lighter than a standard electric bike, which is always a bonus. The DaaHub is certainly set to become one of the big names in electric retro fit kits.
For more information on the DaaHub and its specifications, you can check it out in the E-Motion online store or at DaaHub’s dedicated website.
Its been another crazy month in the E-Motion(al) world. First of all the shop is finally approaching its deadline for its opening (more details to follow shortly), we’ve had some very successful events and also brought on some very exciting new products.
We’re very happy to announce that we now stock BionX retro fit kits in store and online. BionX boast the latest technology in electric bikes (no wonder a lot of bicycle manufacturers chose to use BionX) and allows you to convert your current bike into an electric one. We also offer a retro fit service if you don’t fancy installing the BionX kit yourself. Feel free to come in store and test out the BionX kit for yourself as soon we’re going to have a special bike fitted out with a retro fit kit so you can see the different!

The City of London Police have begun trialling the Wisper 906XC Tourer electric bike as apart of their anti-crime unit. The UK Police are now joining a handful of countries such as France, Germany and Belgian which are already using e-bikes. Wisper hail the 906XC as ‘the last word in electric bike excellence’ and we agree with them, its one of our favourite bikes and it boasts a special Carbon Matrix frame and Vogue Air Magnesium suspension forks. The 906XC has proven itself time and time again and the City of London Police only reinforce this message, picking it as their choice of electric bike.
We’ve just taken delivery of the new 906 XC Tourer – it’s absolutely beautiful!
Comes with a carbon matrix frame, forks and cranks and an 8-speed rear hub drive.
