THE GADGETEER – “Swytch Universal eBike Kit Review”
“Electric bikes are on the rise. I see all types around the bay area too; kid carriers, commuters, big bike brands, custom assembled and more. It makes perfect sense in dense cities where having a car may not be practical. But what if you already have a decent bicycle? Surely there’s a way to convert yours to an awesome electric-assisted commuter.“

Alex gave the following comments in his review
“I’m seriously impressed. Researching e-bike kits online leads you down some serious rabbit holes and building your own customized kit is not for the faint of heart. Swytch has succeeded in simplifying all of that into a kit that fits pretty much any bike with a handlebar. All the components are well made and the install is very manageable. A lot of the expense of an e-bike is in the battery and motor. A brand new e-bike at a bargain price has probably been de-spec’ed in all the standard bike parts. If you’ve been wanting an e-bike and already have a bike you like to ride, this is a great solution. Their Indiegogo campaign is almost 4000% funded and closes in a couple days.”
Thanks Alex! Great to see you love the Swytch Kit as much as we do!
