Men's Trek 2007 7.3 bike with Falco Simplicity e5.3 36V/500W/400Wh eBike System conversion. We are leaving the country, otherwise I would keep this reliable and super-fun commuter! Kitted out with a comfy sprung Brooks Saddle, British-style handlebars and cork grips. The e-bike conversion is three years old and is currently installed with a Hand Throttle and torque sensor / pedal assist. Throttle lets you zip from a stop intersections, pedal assist keeps you going from there. The Optional control module and assist key are not installed but included; this just lets you change the assist from default settings, which I have never felt the need to do.
Top speed is 28mph, range is 15+ miles between charges at full assist. The Reelight CIO system does not need charging and is permanantley attached to the bike. This urban commuter has Pinhead anti-theft bolts on its front wheel and the brooks saddle, and a security key on the battery; keys to all are included.
The bike is for a taller rider – I am a hair over 6’0”, the frame measures 22.5” center-to-center (crank center to center of top frame joint) and 25” center-to-top (crank center to end of seat tube opening). There is plenty of adjustability in seat and handlebar height.
The current Blue book value for the bike is $430, Current price of electric conversion kit: $1600. Priced at $800 for combo.
I can't post links here but there is a good youtube review of the Falco system on Electric Bike Review, and if you google "Falco 36v E-bike kit" you'll get straight to the specs on the system.
