We've been working really hard these months and it's been worth it. We exhibited at BikeUp in Lecco, Italy, gathering a lot of awesome feedbacks and suggestions. Several top news sources covered our BEST conversion kit such as RedBull, Bicilive , InSella , SportOutdoor24 , Corriere.it .

From the BikUp experience, we understood we can contribute in clarifying the concepts around e-bikes: for that reason we updated our website adding the most common e-bike terminology in our Tech section. If you want to understand more about Watt-Hours, Volts and Amperes, just go there and you'll find everything you need to know.

Our partners at Industrio are doing a great job in supporting us. From the BikeUp we got feedback to improve the battery holder design and reduce its volume. We are working on that.
Industrio is a StartUp accelerator who believed in Bikee Bike and is now an active part of our team.
The Start of Production is still forecasted for Jan 2015, but all our January batch kits are already reserved.

Meanwhile we'll be completing the final design, we'll post some video of our testing phase in approx two months. So stay tuned for some good action to come!
By now you can check our installation video here. That's the first prototype and we are working on perfecting all the assembly procedure, but you can have a good grasp of how easy it is to install the kit onto your bike.
