Electrify your bike in 30 seconds with this $800 drop-in e-bike wheel

electron-wheelElectron Wheel combines the battery, motor, and electronics for electric drive into a single unit that replaces your current front wheel.

For the savvy consumer who wants to go electric on their bike, but doesn’t want to have to buy another bicycle to do so, there are a number of e-bike conversion kits on the market, most of which are DIY-friendly. But there’s a fairly recent breed of e-bike conversion products that are designed to be ultra-quick to install and remove, such as the Copenhagen Wheel and the GeoOrbital Wheel, which allow riders to easily swap out between riding their bikes manually or with an electric assist.

The Electron Wheel is another entry to this market, and similar to the Copenhagen Wheel, the big idea is that (almost) everything is integrated into the wheel itself, which can quickly (30 seconds) be removed or installed on almost any bike.
