I haven’t actually used any of these vendors myself, it’s just information I have been gathering for future reference, but it’s good to see there is a range of approaches – from full service to complete DIY, and pricepoints catered for in Australia for Electric Bicycle stuff.
Australian All Electric Vehicles:
These guys have an ebay store selling assorted bits, as well as a web site.
Of interest to me as the 48v controller they sell looks like just the ticket if I ever decide to increase the power on my bike by adding an additional battery to it. Melbourne locations.
Brett / Solar BBQ:
I know two guys very happy with this guys products, DIY hub motor ebike central: http://www.users.bigpond.com/solarbbq/bikesale/bsale.htm. Newcastle (NSW) Location.
Expensive but amazing looking bikes and kits.. the videos on the site look like a lot of fun of pushing the power limits:
I just founds this site while googling the subject, and these bikes look cool going just from the web page, but you pay extra for Li-ION batteries. http://www.zbike.com.au/ – Sydney.
I know 2 owners of this kit, different approach to the hub motor style that I went for: http://www.elationebikes.com.au/
Also sell kits driving the chain through the gears, in a similar vein to E-lation kits, but different products – some very high wattage kits there. Sold via an ebay store that also sells assorted parts, and their own web site.
Electric Vehicles Pty Ltd
Melbourne business with a shopfront with some very nice looking bikes, who appear to offer the full level of service and support for those who don’t care to DIY. Located in Melbourne, with a web site..
