When Larry first contacted us about turning his tandem bicycle into an electric tandem bike, we didn’t think it was possible. With a long frame, two riders, and lots of extension cables, electric tandem bikes don’t usually go very far. After much persistence, he decided to take his chances with the BionX electric motor kit and do the entire conversion himself in his garage. Using a BionX PL350 with a rear rack mount, Larry was able to rig up the entire system to his tandem. Surprisingly, he’s getting over 20 miles out of the BionX battery, and is having a blast. He’s even named his motor “Max” for “Max Power.”
Thinking about putting a BionX electric bike kit on a bike of your own? There are a lot of options for motor power, wheel size, and battery mount. It’s pretty evident that BionX has enough power and capacity to push two riders on a tandem bike, as well as electric recumbent bikes, electric folding bikes, and electric mountain bikes.
