    Bike transformation

    I have Trek Domane 2.3 bike and I was thinking to convert it into the e-bike, however, there are many contradictions and still not sure whether I should do this.

    and all these limitations in different states make me irritated as I cant choose the best option.
    I do understand that rear wheel kit would be better to choose due to its carbon folks. Can you advise me some good option
    thanks
    cheers

    Any bike that you convert to electric will put forces on your frame that the engineers did not design it for. Also the increased speed will hammer the wheels and frame even more.
    If you want an electric bike buy an electric bike. I went with a Stromer.

    At low power assist I can get 100 miles from a charge. You must pedal the bike.

    I don't think this is the right place to ask this question, since the vast majority of posters here consider E-bikes to be the spawn of Satan. Go over to bikeforums.com; that's where the E-bike people hang out.
