"Unfortunately, I've had a spate of issues that have prevented me from using the Swytch kit for my Dahon for more than 60 miles since receiving it in February. There have been two failed controllers on top of having to buy a new steel fork to make it work (best not to use any Dahon/Tern with aluminum forks). Swytch has paid for shipping of the power pack back to them for repair and I'm hoping to get it back so that I can actually use the product. Also still waiting on my second Dahon kit that I purchased, which I've been assured will have a non-faulty controller. That said, when it was working, the kit did exactly what it was supposed to do. It's zippy for sure. A motorized folding bike is such a versatile transportation tool and we can't wait to get the first one running and the second one built up."

"The basic concept of the Swytch is beautiful. A battery + controller that you simply install on your bike. You simply remove the battery to recharge it - simple. It is perfect if you want to stop for lunch or just recharge at your desk at work as I do on my 30 mile commute. The downside is the technology. It's new and heavy electronic components bouncing on tracks are always going to suffer. There were also assembly errors from the Chinese factory. The upside - swear free cycling into work across the Epsom Downs where my main traffic issues are the awesome racehorses being exercised. All the fun of being a club cyclist without the sweat."

"A great little system. The 50 mile unit seems pretty efficient. Charges well, and propels you along nicely up to 15mph. Range seems okay, with 50 miles achievable at a lower assistance level or with more determined pedalling rather than relaxing! With very little pedalling (i.e. virtually none with an optional thumb throttle), you’ll still get around 20 miles out of the battery."

"Great kit to convert my Brompton. In my 70's I now cycle again like a young person. The kit was easy to fit and there is support from Swytch if you have any problems. I consider myself lucky to have been an early supporter. By"

"LOVE MY SWYTCH! I am able to take my Brompton out everyday because I can now conquer all the hills with the pedal assist. I'm a middle aged not so fit woman just trying to use my bicycle more. Biking does not have to be painful anymore."

"It just works! It took me about an hour to electrify my Brompton. And then I went out for a quick 20 mile bike ride up the Hudson River (in NYC). This weekend I took it for a long ride in Vermont. It's so simple. Well done, Swytchers."

"This kit as allowed me to get back on my bike again, I was a keen cyclist a number of years ago but got out of the habit now with the Swytch kit fitted its like having a partner helping me out. Still remember the first time I used the kit and was amazed at how much help I got."

"I live in hilly Hampstead in North London and find when I leave my house on my Brompton I always turn right to avoid cycling up the hills. I’m also 59 years old and my knees aren’t what they used to be. Since receiving and fitting my Swytchbike kit (fitting took just 3 hours and was well described in the accompanying manual) not only am I able to turn left and discover the joys of hilly north London, the assistance means I don’t have any pain in my knees when I cycle. Considering the price and quality of the Swytchbike kit compared to other options, it is in my view by far the best way to enjoy electric cycling."

"I love my Swytch - It gives me so much pleasure to zip along and makes me feel about 40 years younger. I am using my Brompton now pretty much every day because it is so much easier to get around with the motor and I don't have to worry about arriving in a sweat. For years and years I commuted by tube to central London. I can't tell you how much stress has been taken away having the Swytch! (In fact I actually WANT to go to work every day now!) I did have a few problems at the beginning but was able to take the bike in to Swytch HQ and got fantastic service from Dmitro and the team."

"I have had no problems with my Swytch 28 " 50 miler throttle only. I am now over 1500 miles and still going strong. My 14 mile commute is great! I recharge after each leg. I have only had to spray the contacts (using MAP sensor cleaner) when I noticed engagement of the motor when stopped. I temporarily fixed this by whapping the right side of battery with my hand. Yesterday I rode 18.5 miles out (59 min) and back (69 min) to donate platelets. I charged the battery while donating (about 2 hours). The battery gave out less than 2 miles short."

"I bought the Swytch Brompton kit to extend the range of my Brompton bike, which I mostly use when flying a helicopter. When I land somewhere out of the airport, I use the bike to get to nearest town to get decent lunch and return soon enough to wait for my passengers to return. With Swytch kit I can head out 10+ miles without the fear of returning late or exhausted. Swytch kit turned my Brompton to a very meaningful extension mean of transport on my helicopter trips. It is also lightweight enough not to compromise the payload of the helicopter itself. I know that this is quite special case but both Brompton and Swytch are quite special products so it goes well together with special use cases. I would recommend this combination to any pilot who needs to solve his transportation needs out of home airport."
