  • An electric bike kit that includes everything you need to get rolling aside from an inner tube and tire (consider buying in advance or using the one off of your target bicycle)
  • Available in 20, 24, 26, 27.5 and 28 inch wheel sizes! That means you can convert everything from trikes to city bikes and even mountain bikes to electric, it's relatively easy and fast to install, the cadence sensor clips on so you don't have to remove crank arms
  • Offers a variable speed trigger throttle for smooth but instant power as well as pedal assist with a 12 magnet super-responsive cadence sensor, you also get a remote button pad for easy control of assist levels while riding
  • The geared hub motor freewheels so there's no drag but it does still add weight to your front wheel and this impacts steering (and can lead to speed wobble when riding no-handed), the axle and hub screws were were wider than our fork allowed which required some filing

Written Review

Dillenger offers some of the most polished electric bike conversion kits I’ve tested and their Street Legal Samsung Power product is one of my favorites. This kit is well priced at ~$700 including the motor, controller, display, throttle, battery and all of the wires you need to get up and running. The only things it does not included that will require extra money and effort to install are a an inner tube and tire. This saves waste because you probably already have a tube and tire on your soon-to-be converted bicycle… but it requires some doing and possibly even tools that you don’t have like tire levers. I also used a bike stand to get this kit on and you can find them for ~$100 which will save your handlebars and seat from wear (if you plan on flipping your bike). We had to flip our bike once to modify the fork and used some of the cardboard and foam packing materials from the box which was free :D

Okay, so installing this kit took longer than I expected (or perhaps remembered as I had already installed their older version a couple years back) but that’s just how it goes sometimes… because every bike is different. In this case, we used a Trek 7.2 FX model. It seemed like the perfect platform because the downtube was very open and had bottle cage bosses (offering plenty of strength and space for the battery pack to mount). Ultimately, we ran into some challenges because the dropouts on the fork were a millimeter or two too narrow and had to be filed down to fit the hub motor axle. We also had to file the screw heads on the hub motor itself so they wouldn’t rub on the sleek fork. This kind of alteration is always a little scary and might require even more tools (we used a standard mill bastard file) but that’s what I’ve come to expect with kits because it’s never truly one size fits all. I love that this kit comes in a range of wheel sizes 20″ to 29″ where the motor is spoked-in to a rim. That versatility comes with the trade-off of not being perfectly suited to any one specific bike. The rim might be narrower or wider than yours and the spoke colors might not match. I actually really like the black paint job on the hub motor, spokes and rim here because it helps them to blend in. There’s always going to be some screwing around when it comes to kits and even if the effort is minimal, the extra wires aren’t going to look as sleek and clean as if they were run through the frame, as is the case with purpose-built electric bikes. For this build, we were using a black bike so the black wires sort of fade away and the whole thing turned out really nice.

I like saving money, I love how well designed the Dillenger kits are (with color coded wires) and appreciate more open systems that give you throttle and pedal assist modes (making this a Class 2 ebike). I was a bit surprised that you can’t use the throttle at assist level zero for “throttle only” operation but it works great in level 1 and offers full power with variable output (so you can press gently for slower, less powerful operation). I enjoyed riding around with minimal assist then juicing it to climb a hill, take off from a stop sign or catch up with my friend. The display, throttle and independent button pad (used to switch the display on and select from five levels of assist) were easy to position and ultimately reach while riding. Our brake levers were integrated with the shifters and that kept the cockpit clean but didn’t align as well for the brake lever motor inhibitor sensors. The display isn’t removable which is a bit sad given how nice it looks (hoping nobody messes with it at the bike racks). I also struggled to figure out how to change settings like going from metric to imperial but my guess is that it’s possible? To activate backlighting you just hold the up arrow for a few seconds and holding the down button will turn on walk mode which is neat.

At 350 watts (250 for parts of Europe) the power offered by this kit is average but the battery pack is above average with 36 volts and 13 amp hours! That’s nearly a half kilowatt hour total meaning you should go further with each charge. Of course, if you don’t pedal and constantly gun it to top speed your mileage may suffer. The Euro version should deliver higher range as air resistance efficiency loss is much lower at lower speed. Note that you can ride above the top assisted speed if you pedal hard and the wheel freewheels efficiently, nothing will hold you back besides your own strength and endurance :) At the end of the day, the kit isn’t quite perfect (I wish it came with a paper instruction sheet for one) but I guess that just like the tube and tire, they are saving money and reducing waste. Instructions are available online and Dillenger has wonderful customer support options with multiple phone numbers (for the US, UK and Australia where the company is based). Even though I’ve stated that the motor size/power is average, in my experience it’s enough for pleasurable rides around town and small to medium hills. There’s always a trade-off when it comes to weight and price, what the Street Legal kit offers is great value and in practice it more than doubles my own pedaling output. The entire kit only adds ~17 lbs to your bike and the removable battery is convenient and easy to work with. This is a winner in my book and it’s easy to see why the kit is a top seller for Dillenger. Big thanks to Dillenger for partnering with me for this review.


  • Relatively affordable if you’ve got a pre-existing bike to work with, you get the motor, controller, battery, display and all of the wires needed to get up and running for well under $1k
  • The packaging looked great and seemed very well padded, none of the parts were damaged or missing! Frequently I receive kits or even ebikes with missing screws and damage, Dillenger also offers a solid 1 year comprehensive warranty
  • The kit is indeed street legal in most situations, it maxes out at 20 mph but includes both assist and throttle mode for versatile riding, I like the throttle for use when starting at zero to reduce strain on my knees
  • The front wheel design is super easy to install, way less complex than a rear wheel ebike kit, and the wires are all color coded to make them intuitive to figure out, you also get plenty of zip ties but I was a bit surprised that our kit didn’t have an instruction sheet? We had to go online to figure it out, I also love that the cadence sensor uses a clip-on design so you don’t have to remove the cranks on your bike
  • The display is large, backlit and offers a ton of readouts including speed, odometer, battery level, voltage, watts and access to assist settings, it’s not removable but for what it is, it works well… I love that you get a separate button pad because it makes changing levels easy, you don’t have to take your hand off the grip
  • The battery pack locks to the frame for security but is removable for convenient charging, there’s a built-in LED scale to communicate charge level even when it’s off the bike and a female USB port for charging portable electronics! It’s a solid design and the capacity of nearly 1/2 kilowatt hour is great, I also trust and prefer Samsung cells to generic
  • I love that the kit included brake sensors so you can improve safety (cutting power to the system whenever you brake) and that if you decide to not use them, the system still works
  • Dillenger offers this kit in multiple wheel sizes including 20″, 24″, 26″, 27.5″ and 700c 28″ so you can use it with some trikes, smaller bikes, city bikes and mountain bikes
  • I like that the kit comes with a trigger throttle because it means you don’t have to cut your grip in half, triggers are also easier to use if you ride on bumpy terrain, they don’t compromise your grip at all


  • The wheel doesn’t come with a tube or tire so you have to spend extra time swapping it from your original wheel… this means switching back to non-electric takes longer or you have to spend more money to buy an additional tube/tire but it also that there’s less waste and probably keeps the kit cheaper and lighter to ship
  • We weren’t able to figure out how to switch from metric to imperial or enter into the menu and adjust the number of pedal assist levels… we did figure out the backlighting though, just hold the up button
  • We had to file the dropouts on our Trek 7.2 FX bicycle to fit the larger axle that’s setup with the kit (it’s ~9.9 mm wide) we also had to file some of the screw heads because they were scraping the fork… but it worked!
  • You need to be in one of the five levels of pedal assist to use the throttle, I love that it overrides at full power but kind of wish it worked at level zero for throttle-only mode
  • The battery box is fairly large and took up the entire downtube triangle area on our test bike so even though there was a second set of bottle cage bosses we couldn’t use them, it’s just bulkier than some new purpose built ebikes with downtube integrated batteries
  • Front-wheel powered electric bikes don’t usually offer as much traction because your body weight is usually further back over the rear wheel, I also feel that the added weight of the hub motor changes steering a bit and was told by Darlington that he felt speed wobble when trying to ride with no hands (this is when the bars vibrate back and forth with increasing speed)
  • It wasn’t obvious which way to point the wheel… I have installed kits before only to find out that the motor is spinning backwards! I wish there was an arrow on the wheel or more information in the instructions
  • Kits tend to have “one size fits all” extra long cables and that means you end up wrapping them and zip tying them to the bike, be sure to clip the ends of the zip ties close so you don’t get scratched, I used a tool like this, even if you do a GREAT job the bike still looks a bit messier than if the cables were the perfect length or integrated through the frame
  • Activating this kit is a two step process… you have to press a power button on the battery then hold the power button on the control pad as well, it’s not a huge deal and this isolates power on the battery to reduce phantom draw and improve stability but it does add time and not all purpose built ebikes are two-step like this

I purchased this kit about 2 months ago. Below is my experience with it!

  1. Installation: Installation went relatively smoothly. I had some issues centering the motor / wheel and aligning the brakes, but this is mostly because I’m not an expert at bikes. I was unable to initially install the cadence sensor. I had to purchase a longer crank arm connector piece (not sure what it’s called). Apparently they come in multiple sizes, and mine was the shortest version. It was only a matter of millimeters. Once that was installed, the cadence sensor worked as well. (Until then I was able to use the throttle). One minor inconvenience is that many of the wires are quite long. If you’re installing on a really long bike or something like that, this is helpful, I suppose. It seems like it’d be helpful to include shorter wires for normal sized bikes so you don’t have bundles of extra wires to secure that look a bit messy.
  2. Riding around: The 350W motor is quite powerful. It powers me effortlessly up hills. Usually I pedal along, as that makes the pedal assist work. But I could probably get up hills without pedaling at all, should I really be lazy. I also pull a trailer with two toddlers. I’m not sure how fast I’d be going if I wasn’t pedaling, but just pedaling normally / lightly, I’m able to go up hills at 12 – 15 mph while pulling a trailer! It makes transporting the kids a breeze! Yesterday I probably biked about 20 hilly miles, and the battery was still indicating half full. The throttle is super-helpful for starting up at red lights, especially since I tend to leave the bike in higher gears now. Maybe – going up hills, I downshift into a mid level gear. I haven’t used granny gear since I got the kit. Overall, this kit is both powerful and has a lot of capacity. I can’t see needing anything more powerful – at least on normal streets! It really wouldn’t feel safe to go much faster!
  3. Concerns and annoyances: The computer is terrible. To adjust any of the settings requires a lengthy sequence of button pushes that don’t seem to lead where they’re supposed to. The computer takes up a lot of space on the dash, when all I think I’d really want is what power assist level I’m in (1-5), and my battery life. Things like speed seem to be flat out wrong. And there’s a dozen or so other metrics that just aren’t necessary or useful. Things like temperature (I’m outside already, I don’t need the bike to tell me that I’m hot or cold!), the amount of time the bike has been turned on this trip; the amount of time the bike has been turned on – ever; take up lots of space on the computer and on the dash had have limited value. I had to move my light and bell to make room for the large computer… bummer. It doesn’t really seem to effect the operation of the bike, however. It’d be nice if it had a built in light or something, especially since the computer takes the space where lights are mounted.
  4. The motor seems to cut out briefly when going up long hills. Not sure what’s happening – if it’s overheating, or switching gears, or what? It doesn’t seem to be a big deal – it maybe only cuts out for a second or so…. as long as this doesn’t become more frequent or for longer intervals, it’s not a big deal.
  5. A couple times, the unit has failed to turn on and has indicated that the battery is dead when it has at least half capacity. Eventually, after trying to turn it on a few times, it has worked. Concerning, but as long as it continues to work, not a big problem.

Anyhow, overall, I think this was the right unit for the right price. At $700, it’s not the cheapest model out there, but it’s a really good option that seems to have a fair bit of power and capacity. And why a lot of the reviews, etc. seem to try to steer you to a mid-drive kit, I really think that the front drive seems to be the simplest and the cadence sensor + throttle is very simple and very effective.

Excellent feedback Dan! Thanks for taking the time to share and help others. I agree with many of your points and also appreciate the simplicity of a front hub motor and hope we see more integrated light options… especially if it was just a headlight since the display is already there and taking up space as you mentioned :)

One thing – here on your website you have an extra 0 in the prices for this company’s bikes. Obviously this is a $700 kit, not a $7000 kit. But if you search by price, it might come up incorrectly.

I bought a Dillenger Hunter Hub 2016, in summary, the ‘bulletproof’ hub motor broke after about 200 miles of gentle use not offroad. Dillenger took 2 months to diagnose the problem, then offered to deliver after a further 2 months or deliver faster for 150gbp. The bike is under warranty only 3 months old. The marketing proudly pronounces this bike is based on their popular and proven tried and tested kit, using exactly the same motor. However Dillenger say they cannot send a motor from the UK (where I’m based) from one of their kits which are in stock. So overall 4 months to send another ‘bulletproof’ replacement motor or pay alot of money. Sent tens of emails to sort it out, and had to take the bike apart for their diagnosis, in total messing about probably over a week’s work.

Ouch, I’m sorry to hear about all the hassle you’ve gone through Drummond. Thanks for sharing here… and waiting to do so until you tried working with them a bit to find a solution. I hope that your problem is resolved soon and that they are able to avoid this type of situation with other customers in the future :/

I installed the 350 watt kit on my Trek bike a couple years ago. It worked beautifully for about a month and then began to quit if the throttle was advanced too far. Soon it quit altogether. The support was horrible. They wanted me to send a video of the failure happening. That was an impossibility for me. I offered to purchase any parts needed if they could tell what I needed. No way, the video was still required. They are in Australia so any hope of visiting their facility is certainly limited. I ended up giving the kit to a neighbor who is an electrical engineer. I do not know if he was able to get it working. Also, the entire kit is made in China so I would guess Dillenger is merely a reseller. If you buy one do not expect much in the way of service.

Ouch… sorry to hear about that Jack. I wish I had the ability to predict more or warn about possible issues but I appreciate you giving a testimonial here and being pretty fair and even-toned about it. I hope your next ebike experience is better :/

Hey all,

Totally new to this thread but have been a huge fan for a while. Just finished this hack accompanied with a 1000W - 560WH Electric Bike Kit from Dillenger. There just wasn't this setup available so just put it together. I have to say its a blast to ride. Cruising at 25mph+ with traffic is a breeze. Cut my commute in half compared with the NYC subway. Just attached a 50t crank ring to keep a decent cadence in the higher speeds. From a stand still the torque is addicting! Highly recommend going custom for your commute. Cheaper then most brand names out there but with more power.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and or recommendations!

Once the weather warms here in the Northeast I am going to pull the trigger on a kit. I am looking for something that is at least 1000 Watts and at least 12 AH battery. I have been looking at the Dillenger ARC off road kit or the 1500 W Samsung 20 AH kit but have not decided on either or even Dillenger for that matter. Rear hub install btw. Any and all suggestions appreciated. Thanks guys.

I have a 350 watt geared front hub kit from Dillenger and I use it on my daily commuter. It uses HIGO connectors that do a good job of keeping water out. I've have about 700 miles on it so far and have ridden through heavy downpours in it and in freezing temperatures. It's been a reliable workhorse. The motor has a good amount of torque and can get my bike going pretty quickly with just a flip of the throttle. The kit comes with a 13.6ah Samsung battery that gives me a range of 30 miles on a 120 lb electric cargo bike using level 3/5 with pedal assist. At that assist, I do about 16-18 mph, and on level 4/5 I get 19-21 mph with assist. On my previous hard tail where it weighed 45 lbs (w/kit) I was able to go 45-50 miles on a single charge.

I have purchased 2 kits from then (1st gen and 2nd gen) and have been pleased with them. Just get yourself from some Grin torque arms and your all set. (Total kit price $629)


You can download the user manual to install it yourself. Its easy to follow and was the first kit I did myself on my existing bike. It was pretty easy.

Wow, you picked some real interesting choices! Are you even aware that GenZ is Manhindra (sp) one of the largest manufacturers of heavy equipment and automobiles in the world. Don't think they are going anywhere.
Bulls is one of the real success stories of Ebikes, Specialized(!), Scott (HUGE in Europe), Stromer!!, Haibike!!!!!!!!!!! LOL, you're killing me here. You do realize you've listed all of the biggest, most successful Ebike companies out there as going to be gone............... Trek?? If it doens't go well? ALL the "New" big boys have been selling Ebikes in other countries for YEARS, including Trek. Scott and others have said they may be Ebike ONLY in the future. Sales are PROPPING UP REGULAR BIKE COMPANIES....
Flip your idea 180 degrees and You've made a pretty good list of the companies that will be kicking ass with Ebikes in the next 10 years.

Serious disagreement with the assumptions and the list. Direct to consumer, online, and mobile delivery are the future of the market. Pedego is a tiny little brand that just happens to be the largest seller of eBikes in the United States. Companies like Stromer, Reise and Muller, KTM and others have very marginal operations in North America. Genze is a tiny little international company that happens to be larger than just about all the vendors combined.

Hard to predict what brands will stick around, but the brands that survive will have the best business model, and not necessarily the best product.

What will surprise people the most, is that many brands that SEEM to have popularity now, are most likely NOT the ones that will survive. Precisely because their business models don't allow dealers to make enough to even live on, or are just poor, or they are naively going direct to market on-line.

These brands in no particular order that will most likely struggle:
Van Moof

There's at least 50 more, than aren't worth even mentioning.

Survivors could be, IF they even decide to keep doing e-bikes:
Reise & Muller
Trek (though the name may stay, they may dump ebikes if it doesn't go well)

Some names may survive and get bought out, if they have some sort of unique niche they've captured.

None of the above matters anyway, as I predict hundreds more new names will be forthcoming, until the market gets this right. Its WAY too early to speculate on any of this, but it might be interesting to look back in 5 years to see if any of this was right, or wrong.

I wanted to pull the trigger on one of these but there's a lot of comments saying they stop working after a month or two and then Dillenger are terrible to resolve the problem. I see Darlington below states the same that it broke after a month or so. I'd love to know if it got resolved or not and if the unit is still working after all this time. I'm not dropping around 1k on something that's got no longevity.
