REV Electric Bikes & Conversion Kits

Festive Joy and well-wishes to all our friends & fans!
We are happy to have gathered such a large and supportive following, so thanks to you all for a successful and fun 2016 :) Keep up the REVolution!
So.. What can you expect from REV in 2017..?

The REV-Mobile - we come to you!

REV-BIKES have grand plans for 2017! 
GOING MOBILE - First and foremost, we are currently fitting out our new van, to allow mobile conversion and repair services across Melbourne, and then beyond.  Soon to be branded up looking something like the pic above.
We understand that our workshop in Warrandyte isn't so easy for everyone to access, so we are putting our workshop on the road.  We have several trained REV-mechanics around town now, ready and raring to fit kits to bikes, so this van should be on the road several days per week by March :)
TRAINING - REV will be offering more of our E-Bike Mechanic Training Courses next year, due to popular demand.  Read below for news of how it went.  We are especially interested in training WOMEN e-bike mechanics, so get in touch if interested for a special discount incentive for the gals.
VIDEO BLOG - RevBecca is featuring in a (soon-to-be-weekly) YouTube vid blog, being put together to increase our online presence, and to inform, educate and inspire people about E-Bikes and Conversions. There will also be tutorials on using and installing various parts of our kits.  You can keep track at and subscribe to get updates when new clips become available.
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT - We are working with our suppliers to perfect the BEST lithium battery pack technology currently available on the global e-bike market..  We're calling it LoVo Technology.  The point is to improve safety and lifespan of e-bike batteries, so we have the happiest customers for the longest time! :)
We are getting larger battery packs in too, by putting higher capacity cells inside our cases.  We know that most people love to go far and wide once they experience the e-bike grin.
And we are expanding our range of mid-mount motors, especially popular amongst e-MTB riders.  We now stock 250w, 500w, 750w and 1000w Bafang Kits, as well as the accessories to make these an awesome system.
NEW WEBSITE - Although we get lots of positive feedback about our website, it is a little outdated (look, content & platform) after 5 years, and it was actually hacked last month, leaving us offline for over 2 weeks in our busy time! :(  So we will be embarking on transforming it during the first half of next year.  We would love to hear form you if web design is your area of expertise, and you'd like to work with us

Leading the Charge!

What we've been up to...

REV's Oz-first E-Bike Mechanics Training

In November we delivered Australia's first ever E-Bike Mechanics Training Course.  5 enthusiastic students attended the 5 day course, which culminated in the completion of an e-bike build for each student to ride away on.
Our course was designed to comprehensively cover all aspects of the electric bike system, from understanding of electrical theory, the workings of DC motors & controllers, battery technology & best practice, diagnosis & repairs, and obviously fitting an e-bike kit (both hub and mid-mount motors).  This was in addition to the basics of servicing a bicycle.
We fitted 4 hub motors (one front 250w wheel and 3 rear 500w wheels) and a mid-mount system (1000w Bafang HD), 4 frame-mounting batteries and one rack battery.  This was a great mix, to cover the bulk of our kit components.  We hit all the typical challenges, so learned the best way to overcome those.  Everyone ended up with a well tuned, practical and neatly finished e-bike, which they are thoroughly proud of.
We've had very positive feedback from our students, with comments such as "I was pleasantly surprised by the level of forethought, preparation and execution of this course" and "all the presenters were succinct and pleasant" :)
We will be running more of these courses in 2017, the aim is to reach regional areas across Victoria and beyond, so please get in touch if interested.

Special Offers:

Kits & Demo Bikes

We are keen to freshen up our range of demo bikes, so are looking to sell some of our well-loved fleet bikes.  These are available super cheap (from $500) with their older batteries, or still very cheap with a new battery.  We have a couple of 250w setups, and also a 500w possibly.  Come see us at the Warrandyte workshop to try and buy :)
We are also well over-stocked in 1500w MadManix rear wheel hub motor kits, and these have to move out to make room for our more popular kits.  The super-torque motors travel up to 50km/h without pedalling, will climb the steepest hills with zero effort, are great for pulling heavy trailers, and can in fact be run at 3-4kW with other controllers and higher voltage batteries!  We have all wheel sizes available, and are offering the kits (without battery) for sale at $650 ($300 off!) while stocks last.
We do have some batteries to suit this kit too, including the new 48v 15.5ah "LoVo" frame-mounted Tiger battery ($900) shown below, with a 30A continuous output capability. 

These batteries (and some others) are available now, but are not yet on the website, for reasons explained below.

Since our website was hacked last month, the backend functionality has become severely limited, which won't be resolved until the New Year.  We apologise for this, as were hoping to update our products over the break :(  oh well..soon!
REV-Bikes HQ will be closed from 24th December - January 3rd, unless by appointment.  We will be operating limited hours until January 12th.  As usual, always call before attempting to visit us.

From all at Team REV.. Have a happy and safe Festive Season, and get on your e-bike!
