Electrify Your Bike

Converting your bike to an e-bike at Mr Cycles could be a great value option to putting a spark back into your cycling!

Why not pop in and ask if we can convert your bike? If you can’t pop in to see us with your bike then email pictures of your bike to us at info@mrcycles.co.uk. Please tell us the make and model of your bike and show us the whole bike in your pictures as well as the area of the frame where the pedal axle goes through by the chain rings.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not convert Fat Bikes, Full-Suspension bikes, or bikes with carbon-fibre frames.







‘We picked our bikes ( ladies & gents Giant Sedonas ) up this morning from your shop. We then went for a trial ride on the Cuckoo trail from Hailsham up to Heathfield and back.

Well – just astounded at how much stronger we had both become ( and we haven’t been at the spinach ) it was just amazing.

Smooth power assist and one would never have believed there was a uphill grade of note on the final stage to Heathfield. We used level 1 for most of it but on the short sharp bits at road crossings level 3 made them a breeze!

Looking at the bikes at our lunch stop I started to notice some the significant little parts that make it work so well ( and so neatly fitted on to the bike ) such as the new rear brake with isolated switch ( a well sensible device ). The sensor on the rear wheel, new cranks and bottom bracket set up. The cable clipping with no sagging. And more.

Overall we are well pleased with the ride and still have yet to learn more about how to gain the best from it, utilising the gears and pedal speed to advantage.

As an engineer and retired Road Transport Engineering lecturer I am very impressed with the standard of fitting and workmanship. No loose ends and tidy with functionality. Excellent. All at a very acceptable price too.

I would not hesitate in recommending your business.

Thank you for making our life on bikes so much more pleasant – a new lease of life!’

Mr & Mrs S, Worthing


If a bike meets the EAPC requirements it’s classed as a normal pedal bike. This means you can ride it on cycle paths and anywhere else pedal bikes are allowed.

Any electric bike that doesn’t meet the EAPC rules needs to be registered and taxed. You’ll need a driving licence to ride one and you must wear a crash helmet. The vehicle will also need to be type approved to make sure it’s safe to use on the road.

To be clear, if an EAPC can be electrically propelled without pedalling, it’s known as a ‘twist and go EAPC’. A twist and go EAPC must be ‘type-approved’ to make sure it’s safe to use on the road. A type- approved vehicle will have a plate showing its type approval number.

At risk of labouring the point: you can’t ride an illegal electric bike off-road to avoid punishment. It would be like riding a motorbike over The Downs with all the legal punishments that might attract.
