Optimized by customer feedback
Our previous, best selling version of this kit served us well for over 3 years. During this time we noted the requests and comments from customers which have been taken into consideration for the development of this new version. We've thrown away the e-brake handles in place of e-brake hall effect sensors. These mount on your existing brake levers so there is no issue with compatibility. We've changed the twist throttle to a thumb throttle which means you can keep your existing grips and have more room on your handlebars resulting in a cleaner looking finished product. Other changes include updated decals, matte black Dillenger hub motor, spokes and rim and the biggest change of all, the long range Samsung 13Ah battery system.
Long range Samsung battery
This new battery system is a major improvement for only a small increase in cost. Thankfully, just in the last year prices for Samsung cells have become very reasonable so we have opted for this impressive cell after thorough testing. The Samsung 26F cell is a 2,600mAh Lithium ion cell manufacturer by Samsung SDI for various applications. The longevity and stability of this cell at low to medium discharge loads make it ideal for this conversion kit. The cells are protected by an advanced BMS that controls everything related to the discharging and recharging of these cells to ensure they last a very long time and maintain good performance over the lifetime. The energy of this pack has now been increased from 360Wh to 470Wh. To see how big the battery and cradle is in real life and if it will fit in your frame on the water bottle threads, download the 'battery profile' document above this text.
High torque hub motor
This geared hub motor is 100% unchanged from previous models, apart from the new decals and matte black finish. We've kept this design the same because out of the thousands of units sold all around the world over the last three years there has been zero failures, which in a stressful application such at this is nothing short of astounding. The geared hub motor is 350W (limited to 250W in UK, EU and AUS) and has more torque than you would ever require, no matter the size of the hill or the load on the bike. Waterproof, zero maintenance, silent, freewheeling (doesn't drag) and disk brake compatible. This hub motor has been so reliable and great to use that it has found it's way into many of our new e-bikes.
Ideal DIY conversion kit
The new Dillenger street legal kit is a great option for those looking to convert their every day bike into electric, where the finished product is a subtle conversion resembling a factory-made electric bike. The kit is made to universally fit any regular bike in 24", 26", 700C, 28" or 29er (just check your tire sidewall for your wheel size). There's no 'tricks of the trade' involved in installing this kit, it's designed to be assembled by a total rookie. If you get stuck, you can always just give us a call for help! Because bicycle forks are made to fit industry standard bicycle hubs, this enables us to produce a motor and wheel that is capable of fitting any regular mountain bike, cruiser, BMX, commuter, tricycle or road bike.

Support service very good and responsive.
I had some problems installing kit on my mountain bike and learnt a few things that I would like to share.
I tried to fit kit on an very up market mountain bike with high end components that was 10 years old. I was unable to fit the front wheel on without a lot of modifications and took many hours to fit to get the disc brakes and shocks to fit. I was then was unable to fit the PAS Pedal assist sensor on the cranks.
I then fitted the kit onto another mountain bike with standard cranks, basic brakes and standard forks and was able to get it to fit with minimal problems.
My observations while fitting the kit.
The space between the forks to fit the wheel is critical and must be at least 100 mm to bet be able to fit the wheel easily.
PAS is very easy to fit on standard cranks and works well.
Fitting disc brakes is likely to involve using spacers to get enough clearance so the wheel doesn't rub against the forks.
Buy the best tubes you can with the highest puncture resistant as changing tubes will be difficult on the road side.
Buy the best quality puncture resistant tires for same reason.
Have brakes adjusted well with good quality pads as you will need them.
Once up and running the kit performed better than I had expected. The kit is rated to travel at maximum 25 kph but will do 32 kph. With pedal assist i have pedaled between 30 to 45 kph commuting to work including minor hills without needing to shower when arriving at work. I have to travel a small section through traffic, the thumb throttle will get you across the intersection very smartly from a standing start.
The kit is very well priced considered the high quality of the battery which is supplied. I have looked at several other systems and none of them is as well designed or near this price with comparable components. The guys at Dillenger were responsive and helpful when I ran into a problems.
When I put another bike together with this kit I will consider putting it onto a hybrid bike with 700c wheels as I think the performance on that setup will be even better for straight commuting.
I hope my review is helpful to others wanting to set up their own bikes. Even with a few hiccups I think its very worthwhile and a lot of fun.

The only issue is it's difficult to fit the throttle and brake senses on the Boardman so don't and use the pedal sensor instead, worked for me! (this would always be the case with any universal conversion kit)
I've installed many kits brought from china which have been okay and served a purpose but the Dillenger is the best in quality and performance! Very Good indeed! (Posted on 27/02/2016)
