Oh – look what Santa brought me this year: a new Bionx motor for my Surly LHT! Well at least I will not have to get used to a new bike.

For the technical amongst you, the kit is BionX’s latest D-Series System with a 48V down tube battery and the D-Series Rear Hub Motor this motor comes fitted to a special new wheel that will take 8, 9, and 10 speed cassettes – thereby allowing all the original gearing to be retained. The system is controlled via the latest G2 console which has an illuminated LCD display with battery state-of-charge, access to 4 ‘assist’ levels, 4 ‘Generate’ levels, possibility of controlling lights, and cycle computer functions of speed, odometer, clock, average speed and trip distance.
