Calfee Design has developed the best solution for cyclists interested in electric assist. We will elegantly retrofit a state-of-the-art Pedal Assist to almost any bike, including tandems. Our system is both expandable and customizable. You can run it with as few or as many batteries as you actually need. Unlike other eBikes, you can legally bring these modular batteries on an airplane. In addition, swapping back and forth to your original setup is quick and easy, just remove the top tube bag and replace the powered wheel with your original. The internal wiring stays installed and out of the way.
Prices range from $2500-$4000*

Ready to be energized?
Power is supplied by the modular LiGo battery packs from Grin Technology. A modular battery means your system is lightweight and expandable for more assist range as needed. The number of LiGo cells selected for the system will determine the maximum power and range of the retrofit. Why pay for – and carry more than you really need?
Each LiGo pack is 2.7Ah (610g) and can be combined with additional packs to create a larger capacity battery system. In addition the LiGo battery packs are travel-ready, conforming to FAA passenger aircraft flight regulations.
Prices quotes will range from $2500-$4000 on the typical retrofit depending on options. You send us your garage decoration and we’ll send back a high performance hill flattener.
