I'm gonna do some checking. See if anything else is out there - other than Amazon. Still cheaper to convert an old bike but not by much. Plus, one doesn't have to worry about wiring & ohm's law & batteries, if one isn't too hip on the subject.

The pack is attached to the downtube. Depending on how it's built, you might be able to replace the bad cell in the pack. If not, you'd buy the $200 battery with charger, or whatever 36v option is available at the time. They're lithium batteries so they'll have a good lifespan, IF they stand up to bumpy bike rides.

BTW - this is the same Hyper ebike I first posted in another thread back in June 2019. The only difference I can see is that it's now $100 cheaper. Yeah, I'll kick myself if they knock off yet another $100 for Negro Viernes. That's generally how my luck runs.
So, bottom line, you can get a complete bike, with slightly less range, for an extra $30, vs buying kits & assembly.
wait, if you buy the kits, don't you still need to add a bike?
Yes. Maybe I could have worded that better. A complete ebike is only $30 more than buying the kits. The Hyper ebike will have aprox 25% less range than a kit bike, in theory anyway. 7.5 amp hr for the Hyper battery vs 10 amp hr for the kit battery I looked at.

i read several of the reviews on WM's link and one said that it only has an hour run time, 40 mins if it's hilly, and i thought that would be adequate for just getting around town. not so much for the desert or actual mountains i guess.
i'm actually considering getting one of these, but since you've bitten the bullet i'll wait a bit.
Wrote this bike up on the other site a while back. The most foreboding comments I found, "it's great for small riders", and "it doesn't like hills".. On the other hand, one reviewer from a large city said it was very good on his commute, but half of his commute is on rails, the other half on flat land.
I've been interested in an e-bike conversion. At the same time, I don't want to feel like I've admitted that I might need it just yet. The Hyper E-ride is a nice looking bike, for 1/4 the price of the e-bike I'd be most interested in. Interested, but definitely can't get excited about a $1600 to $2000 Trek e-bike.
desertbikes: Naw. It wasn't as good as the heavy snow 2 years ago & there's pics of that around here somewhere. I see AZ made national weather news cuz it snowed in winter Camera crews all over Flagstaff which gets about 14 feet every year.

desertbikes: There was snow on the mountains a few miles away. Lots on the mountains north & west of Phoenix too. A rare & beautiful sight. Snow on the saguaros seems such a juxtaposition of what we normally see 99.999999% of the time

tomcat65: So, I changed the oil in 2 vehicles Friday. My truck seems to appreciate it. Almost ashamed to admit, that I have started using my cordless impact driver to remove and set the oil plug- Carefully.. It is much faster. I used to curse people who did this.

desertbikes: Perfect day for BLM shooting yesterday. In fact, it's also Sonoran Desert Monument land. Didn't see any illegals or smugglers. Or rangers or sheriff's dept either. Broke in a T/C Strike & tried a CVA Bobcat converted to a blanklock system.
