    Any Hill Topper kit or bike owners out there?

    Hi just curious if there are any other Hill Topper kit / bike owners out there? I would be interested in hearing your experiences with the kits / batteries to compare with mine?

    To date here's my two e-bikes:

    1. Conversion of a Giant "Escape" commuter rode bike with a 350W 36V Hill Topper front e-wheel first with 20 mile Ranger bag battery and then changed with Horizon 17 to 40 mile lockable slide in and out battery.

    2. Foldable Hill Topper 350W 36V Hill Topper front e-wheel with Horizon 17 to 40 mile lockable slide in and out battery.

    Here's two videos I've made on my youtube channel.

    Also, one day in the future I might try to convert an older Schwinn tandem cruiser to a 350W 36v Hill Topper kit.

    Yes, I'm addicted to e-bike riding! :)
    Ride fun and safe!

    My first ebike had a HillTopper kit. It was a Trek with 26" wheels. The top speed was 16-17 mph. I found it the power to be very inadequate. I immediately set about building an ebike with much more power. I currently use about 1900-2200W on the same commute (with speeds up to 44 mph) that I used to take with the 250W provided by the HillTopper.

    The only good things about the HillTopper are price, safety and ease of installation.
