The retrofit kits being supplied and installed by MeloYelo’s regional representatives are proving popular. The torque controlled motor kit detects how much power the rider is putting in and delivers between 36% and 300% of that power (depending on power assist setting). The torque control system is much more responsive than standard pedal assist settings so you wonâ€™t have to wait for the power to ramp up when you take off and the motor stops as soon as you stop pedalling, removing the need for brake sensors. The other option is the Bafang 8fun kit.Â This is a great choice if you are primarily using your bike for commuting, or if there is any reason you would like to operate on battery power without having to pedal.
The torque control kit does not fit all bikes, whereas the Bafang kit is more flexible. To find out which motor will work on your bike, click here and supply us with a couple of dimensions and a couple of photos and we will let you know.
