This past couple of weeks I have been converting my bicycle into an e-bike using a conversion kit. This afternoon I rode my e-bike for the first time. Installing this kit was a much bigger challenge than I at first expected, so I wanted to write down my experiences.

I ordered the conversion kit from Cyclotricity on 25 February and it arrived earlier than expected, only two days later. Unfortunately there were no instruction manuals or tools included with the kit, but I found the installation instructions online.
