Looks good, but YIKES it's expensive! It's well on the way to the price of a decent complete e-bike.

So the conversion kit with battery costs between £1500 and £1800.  At that price what's the point?  Wouldn't it be better to keep your loved manual bike the way it was designed and buy an e-bike that was designed to be an e-bike?
