Thanks op
Hot. Good to see a deal on a proper electric bike, not the weedy road legal ones. Even so, can self build something far more powerful for some of the prices there.
Not cheap these

Too posh to pedal
Are these road legal?
Good post, thanks for sharing!
Wow they look awful.

They seem to be claiming they are as the 1000W hub motor can be restricted to 250W.

Such hub motor kits are available from about £120 on ebay for 26" wheel size using the same brushless direct drive hub motors which you get everything you need except the battery to convert a bike although only a basic display. The battery is the main cost as 48V 17Ah batteries aren't that cheap probably start around £350 on ebay for a UK/EU sourced battery

Seem expensive to me I feel there are far better options from Halfords, Go Outdoors and Decathlon however if you are a heavy rider direct drive brushless motors are a better option than the lighter duty geared hub motors. Although stronger direct drive brushless motors do have a lot more drag when the motor isn't engaged compared to geared hubs. Geared hubs are generally considered more efficient as they are much lighter, freewheel better and have less impact on the handling of the bike but have nylon plastic planetary gears inside which can wear out fairly quickly but in fairness this might be inline with the battery capacity declining so by the time your batteries are worn out maybe the hub motor will be too. The gears are replaceable and relatively cheap though although fairly time consuming to replace.

If you want a pre-built 1000W bike they aren't a bad option but they seem to be giving themselves quite a high margin even allowing for the large battery capacity. Some of the bikes they are using look quite basic low end bikes.

Also their warranty looks quite short at only 1 year and no extended warranty for the frame.

As a package they look fairly poor value to me. I would estimate you could save yourself maybe £300-500 by doing the bike conversion yourself depending on model and you may actually having a better bike at its heart.

Give a decent mid drive a go if you haven't - legal ones can peak at up to 600w or so and as that's going through gears can be much more effective.
Quite a revelation for me.

My mate has a bosch mid drive motor, he raved about it until he had a go on my BBS02 bike programmed up to 1.2kw (some have managed 1.3 but its plenty fast enough already). Hes now looking at a bbshd

Fair enough, I've been tempted by powerful mid-drives, but I'm trying to keep reasonably sensible - in the end I do have a circa 90kw bike if I want to go fast (okay, an ICE motorbike).
My TSDZ2 probably will get a 52V battery, but more for keeping heat down a bit.
Noticed this bike in their range.

Seems to be using the same factory as the Btwin folding bike which is only rated to a total load of 100kg including bike weight, accessories, luggage and rider weight. While the weight of the motor hub is not on the frame itself and most of the weight of the battery is on the rear wheel droputs the extra weight will still be excessive load while braking and hitting pot holes etc so the frame will have a harder life.
