Welcome back to another episode of the Bolton Ebikes Podcast. I am Kyle Chittock, your host, and the owner of Bolton Ebikes. And I have talked a lot about upgrading bikes over the last few years. I've put out videos about controller upgrades, battery upgrades, and more, but I still get a lot of questions coming in asking things like, Can I increase the amp on this particular bike? Can I change the motor on this particular bike? And I just want to give you some baseline guideline type rules that you can follow to know are these upgrades that you can do? Or not. So if you have any interest in upgrading your electric bike and then stick around, we're going to jump into it, answer some questions here and give you more knowledge about electric bikes.
In today’s episode you’ll learn more about:
- The dos and don’ts of upgrading your electric bike.
- Can you easily go up in voltage?
- His explanation of watt hours.
- Will it cause damage to your bike to increase the amp hours?
- What is compatible and what isn’t as far as batteries, motors, and controllers?
- Why it’s important to understand how everything works together and why you don’t want to simply “max out”.
- How to change your motor out and what is involved.
- And so much more!
Your ebike is a thing you can hold onto for a long time. Upgrade them over time with new batteries, new controllers, new displays, as new things come out and bikes are going to keep changing quickly. But, hopefully with this little lesson here today, it gives you some information on how you can upgrade your bike and what you can or can't do now when it comes to the rest of the components such as brakes and things like that. I do have other episodes about that. So if you haven't heard those, I've got a great one where I go into all the nitty gritty details about the different kinds of brakes and what can be installed on electric bikes.
You can go check that episode out and if there's something that I missed or something you have questions about, then make sure to send us an email and maybe we can cover that in a future episode.
