“My 82 year old Dad is a happy and proud Swytch Bike owner. At the outset of the Covid lockdown he had a small accident, which unfortunately lost him his sight in one eye! . He was always very active, so we were keen to get him back out cycling. He always wanted an electric bike, but these were beyond the budget. We came across the Swytch Bike kit. It was fairly straight forward to fit, and now he's off everyday, cycling around the Dublin hills, to the envy of his friends! He takes great pleasure in zooming past youngsters on the hills nearby. Thanks to all the team in Swytch, this is a super product, and works very well.”
“I really loved the packaging my Swytch kit arrived in. The branding is really cool and the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. We were able to assemble it in no time at all. Unfortunately I had a problem with the sensor but the customer service were very helpful diagnosing the problem and sent replacement parts very quickly. I really love my swytch kit. I have an arthritic hip and found cycling very difficult but now with the Swytch I am able to enjoy cycling with my family. Thank you Swytch! I have and will continue to recommend this to many friends.”
“purchased my Swytch eBike kite after seeing reviews on FullyCharged and other internet sources (ordered December 2020, arrived mid April).
I was concerned about the fitting as a few people have had some challenges, particularly with the pedal sensor.
I fitted my kit in April and have been riding the converted bike - a 12+ yo Marin Larkspur hybrid bike for 6 weeks very happily with no issues. My plan involved take a much loved older bike (I also have a modern road bike) and add a motor so I could keep up with my wife on her Van Moof.
My experience on putting the kit together was super-positive. I took the opportunity to update tires and tubes on the bike and the fitting went very smoothly. I took it slow and steady and watched YouTube videos and everything came together without much drama and worked first time. I had some concerns about would the sensor move or fall off during use, no issues so far. I was able to adjust the top speed to "test" this mode and was very impressed.
Last weekend I did a test run of 32 km through SW London, Richmond Park and Teddington Lock return using only level one assist. This worked absolutely fine and I returned with three bars of battery (out of 5) still available. I wanted to test the mileage as I am doing three days of 50km each day cost to coast along Hadrian's wall in August and wanted to know if it will make it! So far so good, I had one customer service query which was answered within about 24 hours and was helpful. Recommend to anyone who has a much loved bike and wants a little boost of encouragement to get on your bike more often!”
“I am an avid electric bike person and this was the best way to get my wife into them. This was a good way to covert her beach cruiser into an electric bike. I also had to get one for myself as well. LOL.
This gives us the ability to explore places we normally wouldn't. When we use it with the kids they absolutely love it. I highly recommend it. What's even better is their customer service with this company is hands down great. any time I have an issue they are there for support.”
“A little bit expensive but I hope this will prove to be a good investment over time. Easy to put it on the vintage cheep bike at my choice, as the local bicycle workshop refused to deal with. Clear installation manual with solutions for usual bicycles types. I adapted a caliper and disk brakes on the front powered wheel, for more security on the road.”
“It’s converted my little use steel frame single speed bike into a versatile every day bike. I only need level 1 assistance to allow me to ride all afternoon I use this bike for Deliveroo, and my fellow deliverooers are envious of my bike now. In short it rejuvenated a bike I once loved but which ended the up collecting dust in the garage…. until now that is since it has been “swytched””
“My first run out today on my newly converted Land Rover hybrid bike to the Swytch wheel after it’s arrival and self fitting back in March! I’d like to say I’ve been busy but I’m a fair weather cyclist it seems”
“Lady with a Big Smiley Face.
Over the years I have adjusted my bike to suit me so wanted a electric bike to help getting up inclines due to age of my knees. So was very pleased to find this conversion kit which I felt I could fit myself. Luckily I was able to sign up for the pre order for 50% off. I was fully informed of the status of my order and the whole process was simple to use. Yes it takes months (8 for me) but that suited my situation of it being a birthday pressie for my 60th. The kit was easy to fit I had also ordered brake sensors.
Anyway I love it. Cycling is enjoyable again.”
