The Phoenix Cruiser 4840 Electric Bike Conversion Kit will transform your favorite pedal bicycle before your eyes into a wonderful non-polluting commuting vehicle. With the Phoenix Cruiser, you can have no pre-existing knowledge of electrical wiring. Your system is shipped pre-wired for hassle free and quick instillation. Just replace ordinary front wheel with the electric wheel, attach the throttle and cruise control (optional on some models) to your handlebar, attach the power bag to your rack (rack included), plug in the connectors, and ride.
The Phoenix Cruiser is awesome when riders have long steep hills or do not want the speed of the Racer. The Cruiser can reach 30 MPH in 13 seconds, and will sustain its top speed under a myriad of conditions. The Cruiser with the 4840 controller will gain a little speed on an extreme hill that even the Racer will not climb without some pedaling. The Phoenix Cruiser 48 volt system is available on 20, 24, 26 inch front wheel and 26 inch back wheel.

On top of that, no license, no insurance are required for this commuting vehicle. Not to mention that there are no parking problems at all. Ride anywhere you can ride a standardbike. Use the motor alone, pedal, or use both at the same time. Batteries and charger included.
Range (distance per charge) depends on many factors including tire tread pattern, tire pressure, weight of rider, wind, hills, stop-and-go, rider driving habits. Adding pedal power helps, particularly at start-up. A rider willing to do some pedaling and keep speed under 20 MPH may get 25 or more miles on a charge. As with a car, the faster you take-off and the faster you run, the more fuel per mile you will use. The Phoenix is the most powerful motor available for a bike. There are three motors in the Phoenix Series. They are all brushless motors and are the same physical size. They can be used with either 36 volt (3640) or 48 volt 40 amp (4840) controllers. Phoenix front motors are available on 20 inch, 24 inch, 26 inch, and 700c wheels. Rear 7-speed wheels are available in 26 inch. Other rear wheel sizes available by special order. Dropout width is 100mm for front wheels and 135mm for rear 7-speed wheels. The axle is 9mm in diameter. Phoenix motors are 75 mm wide, extending 100 mm up the fork from the axle. Weight is 23.5 pounds laced to the rim. This system exceeds power and speed limits established by the federal law that defines a bicycle, so ride on-road at your own risk. Choose a bike with good brakes, inspect them often, and replace worn shoes or pads as needed. You'll be putting a lot more miles on an electric bike than a pedal bike, and brakes become very important at the speeds you will reach. Crystalyte kits include an electric motor mounted in the hub of the wheel, speed controller, key switch, connectorized wiring, fuse, batteries, charger, throttle with gauge (thumb or twist - your choice), wire ties, rack, battery bag, cruise control, brake inhibits. There is nothing else to buy. The entire kit comes pre-wired.
