I have recently electrified my trusty old bike with one of these -

It is really ace. well so far anyway.

Basically you swap your front wheel for their motor-wheel, add a battery basket and a pedal sensor and you're good to go. On full power the thrust is really impressive. Up any normal hill is so easy, and accelerating away from a standing start is great. It cuts out at 15 mph (UK/EU laws) so you find yourself travelling everywhere around 15mph in a higher gear than normal. And you can choose how much pedal assist you want.

Very impressed. Love it. Running it is as green as your electricity source/supplier. Made in China. 25 or 50 miles range options (est'd at half-power.)

It's the fastest way for me to get to work. (walking= 30 mins, car = 20--25 mins, ebike = 10 mins).

NB - when I said "recently" - I ordered it (it was a kickstarter type thing) back in July 2018 for delivery Sep/Oct. It only arrived a few weeks ago!

Looks like a great idea. I'm afraid it's a bit out of my price range but if you use it to get to work etc I can see it would pay for itself quite quickly.
