Dan has a lifetime of experience with bicycles and is a hands-on expert when it comes to converting bicycles to electric.
“In 2008 I discovered that electric bikes existed, and an entirely new world opened up for me. Within days of getting my first hub motor kit, I was commuting 30 miles a day to work, about 3 days a week on average. I was hooked, loving being able to ride the distances I used to ride when younger and stronger. Soon I had six e-bikes, one for each purpose. Some were commuters, some for dirt riding, one for long-distance touring and cargo hauling, and another went 50 mph on a race track in Tucson. I stopped counting miles at about 10,000 miles. At least 8,000 miles were ridden with the E-BikeKit direct-drive motor and controller.”
