Dillenger Street Legal Electric Bike Kit Video Review



The Dillenger Street Legal Electric Bike Kit is an electric bike kit that includes everything you need to get rolling aside from an inner tube and tire (consider buying in advance or using the one off of your target bicycle). Available in 20, 24, 26, 27.5 and 28 inch wheel sizes! That means you can convert everything from trikes to city bikes and even mountain bikes to electric, it’s relatively easy and fast to install, the cadence sensor clips on so you don’t have to remove crank arms. Offers a variable speed trigger throttle for smooth but instant power as well as pedal assist with a 12 magnet super-responsive cadence sensor, you also get a remote button pad for easy control of assist levels while riding. The geared hub motor freewheels so there’s no drag but it does still add weight to your front wheel and this impacts steering (and can lead to speed wobble when riding no-handed), the axle and hub screws were were wider than our fork allowed which required some filing.

    Love the site. Thanks for all you do to help promote ebiking! I am on forum looking for a conversion kit and the GeoOrbital has been mentioned. Wish you would review it.

    Can anyone comment on their reliability? I will put 900 miles a month on one of these.

    Hi I am very interested in this kit and considering getting it very soon. I wanna know if there is any reliability issues and is the 27.5 disc brake compatible?

    Thank you, thank you! I was going to buy another kit that looked questionable at best until I saw this review and kit. Sold.

    I wanted to pull the trigger on one of these but there's a lot of comments saying they stop working after a month or two and then Dillenger are terrible to resolve the problem. I see Darlington below states the same that it broke after a month or so. I'd love to know if it got resolved or not and if the unit is still working after all this time. I'm not dropping around 1k on something that's got no longevity.

    I think a bike like this with a front electric motor using pedal assist is probably as good for snow as a twin motor ebike and more efficient for the daily ride

    Great video. How did you end up getting the screws mounting the motor to clear the fork arms? That seems like a pretty significant issue…

    This review was very helpful, thanks! I just ordered a kit and can't wait.

    I was curious about how the cadence sensor is attached. It seems like the disc was just very loosely held on and could easily be knocked out of alignment. How is it secured? And how good is that method?

    Nice kit, looks very straight forward to install. Sometimes a bit of fabricating would be necessary as all bikes are made from different parts. Most Joes or Joanne's should be able to get it working. Good video thanks

    Hello!  I am looking at getting this kit for my mountain bike for commuting.  I was just wondering how is this kit working out for Mr. Darlington after 2 months?  Thanks!

    Bought this kit after watching this review and I am enjoying the kit. Only issue is the e brake cut off, magnets won't mount. Bike works good without.

    We watch these videos to learn how you built your bike. Not how to open the box and check the parts. Why the hell do so many of you people making videos include so much disinformatrion?
